Rolling road required.

PostPost by: greg40green » Wed Feb 15, 2017 6:50 pm

Hello all .
Can anyone recommend a tried and tested rolling road garage that specialises in the Lotus Twin Cam engine.
I am based in the North West / Preston Lancashire.

Greg, Protec Performance are in your area, Clifton, Preston. They set up my twin 40's on a Ginetta G15 running a 100 bhp Imp engine. Ran a lot better afterwards.
Assume the jetting of Lotus twin cam engines is well known.
Important thing with rolling roads is to fit new plugs, points, filters, etc. Oh make sure the cooling is up for the load run.
Hope it helps, les

Maybe have a look on this website:

I had my Elan rolling road tuned by Skip Brown, who know their way around Webers & Dellortos:

Thanks for all your input I will be doing some research .
I thought Skip Brown had long since disappeared, obviously not.
Thanks , Greg.

Skip Brown seem quite low-profile but are indeed still in operation !

Nice people who know their stuff, inside out!!
