If the performance is the same but no kick when the revs start to rise, it could be the internals of the turbo are worn out, have you had abnormal whistling from the turbo which indicate worn bearings, turbo's last around 100,000 miles before having to be rebuilt, the turbine wears out eventualy as well as the bearings

1991 Lotus Elan SE Turbo problems


Lucasia, please know that if you purchase this car, you will have more fun than you know. Things that you need to know before buying one can be found here: http://wikilec.9600.org/index.php/Buyers_guide

This will help you immensely. Although this car is fun, it can be quite expensive to repair. There are lots of parts that cross-reference to American cars. You can find a cross-reference list here: http://www.gglotus.org/ggpart/m100xref.htm

There are others as well.

Also, if you don't mind working on cars yourself, you can save tons of money! I know I have.

If you decide to buy, ENJOY ENJOY ENJOY! Not only will it be fun to drive, it is a rare car as well - 3855 built - another 800 were built later and those are considered the S2 version (if i remember correctly).
