    Default Esprit turbo rebuild

    Does anyone have a recommendation on a reputable shop to rebuild my Lotus turbo?
    Thanks.

    How about an upgrade? Bigger compressor wheel etc.. it would probably be the same cost to rebuild and put a larger wheel in.

    That would make sense for sure. Not sure exactly though which size etc to go with...

    There's the guys who painted all those and serviced them in Lawrenceville, GA. Old crappy shop now, but he always has some sort of hot rod around he's working on. I had a couple of buddies get theirs redone by him, and they all run great. Not sure if you can look it up, and I certainly don't remember his name, but the place is off HWY 20 in Lawrenceville. Not sure if it's logistically sound for you, but he was the guy that painted them and serviced them under warranty for Lotus. Maybe it was regional, but I would assume since you're in PA it stopped here in GA if your Esprit has lived around here since purchase.

    Gotta wait for this weather to break! I'm putting in the alunox manifold, upgraded turbo and performance chip. It's gonna be a good spring!

    Where did you end up having the turbo rebuilt? These guys are excellent too for European guys.
