Lotus Sunbeam Esprit turbo engine
Hi, Paul Gwinnetts Lotus Sunbeam turbo engine after buying this engine 20 years ago I have finally decided to sell it.I bought this in around 2000 when he stopped Sprinting this car,it has been oiled up in a internal garage by the boiler and turned every 4 months.the engine had only done 3 sprints since a freshen up as a yearly check.
2.2 turbo running RWD Sierra Cosworth ,T3 Turbo and actuator,intercooler and dup valve,throttle body,esprit inlet plenium Chamber,7.6-1 compression running mahle pistons,full injection using Vauxhall red top injectors, Paddle clutch and lots of other bespoke parts
Aldons rolling road in 1997 with out upgrades made 285 ft Ibs of torque and 260 BHP .
why am I selling it all ? because I now rally and race sunbeam Lotus .Car would be banned from all rallying and in racing could not run in cscc futures classics or YTCC which means I would have to run in a lot more expensive and with very Quick cars,when I bought engine I was Sprinting and Hill climbing and still using the car of the road,I would now Rotex supercharge it this would make a unbelievable quick Sunbeam Lotus with most of the expensive parts already in this engine .
Has Esprit cam holders these are going for £1000.00 if you can get them
