Lotus Esprit 2.2L Turbo - Engine rebuild

This rare and wonderful Lotus Esprit 2.2 Turbo came to us with running issues, we have just given the car back to the owner in the last few days.

This fourth generation (Peter Stevens redesign) Lotus Esprit from 1989 features a 2.2l 4 cylinder turbo-charged engine. We have worked on this car before, fitting upgraded suspension components and various other modifications.

The engine unfortunately had a number of oil leaks when it was brought into us. It was running really rough and she clearly wasn’t well.

We diagnosed the oil leaks, injectors and plugs as being the factors.

We stripped the engine to enable us to reseal parts such as the sump gasket, crank seals, rocker cover gasket and oil pump gasket.

Wheile we had the engine out we also installed a new clutch, new cambelt and new water pump.
