After some research, I found a few threads stating that momo used to make an adapter that fit the esprit (airbag equipped cars). It is no longer made but apparently grant makes such an adapter for the isuzu impulse or geo storm. Those are supposed to have the same steering shaft spline as the esprit.

Then, to use a momo wheel, you just need to add a grant-to-momo adapter on top to MAKE it all work.


Has anyone gone this route? It seems that you can get everything for under $100. I know that jae has a custom adapter, but it is $500. I support jae with other parts orders, but $500 is pretty steep for a basic adapter.

The momo adapter was only for non-airbag cars if I remember correctly. The steering shaft in the airbag cars comes from an Isuzu pickup truck. I have used these adapters many times, but the only thing that fits are the splines. You have to modify the rest of the adapter. Takes a lot of time, but it can be done. It's a trial an fit.

Gt lotus,

Thanks for the reply. Do you have any pics of the necessary modifications?
