Lotus Elan

SOLD: Fuel Injection (Complete System) in USA

PostPost by: bhertzog » Mon Feb 19, 2018 6:26 pm

SOLD: I am parting with my Jenvey/MBE fuel injection system from my racing Elan. This system came with my car. I ran it for several years (very competitively) with absolutely no issues, but I have now converted back to vintage-proper Weber carbs. This is a complete system for a Weber head twin-cam. It comes complete with the cables and software to program the ECU.

The following parts are included:
Jenvey 45DCOE 45mm bore x 118mm long (similar to TBP45i TB Body 45mm Pair)
Jenvey Fuel Rail Kit (TBR22 Fuel rail kit ali 2 twins)
4X Air Horn 45mm x 40 (AH45x40)
Air-filter back plate (ABB2/0M Airbox backplate flat std TB)
Throttle Position Sensor (similar to Jenvey TP8RH TPS P&G contactless - RH)
Coil Pack (Sagem Coil-4)
ITG Air filter (JC50/65)
Fuel Injectors 4x (Ford F5DE-B5A)
Fuel Pressure Regulator (Weldon 2040-281-A-120)
Crank Position Sensor (Facet 90036) (new spare included)
Throttle Linkage
Crank Sensor Bracket
Crank Pulley and Crank Fire Wheel Fuel Pump
Wiring Harness
Plug Wires

The parts are in Houston, TX (USA). I am willing to ship at buyers expense. I am accepting reasonable offers. I would also consider trade or partial-trade for Elan lightweights racing bits. I am in need of parts to build a racing differential (limited slip diff, 4.11 or 3.9 CWP, 6 bolt CV-type diff output shafts, lightweight case/nose, etc.).

More pics available. Happy to answer any questions.

What state of tune is your race engine in?

I wonder about the track you are going to take the car to. Ive fitted a 4.44 lsd and in the process of buying a 4.7. Tony thompson suggested an even lower ratio for the Angouleme circuit.

@Dan - I acquired the car with the engine set-up with the fuel injection. I didn't get many specs. I was told ~165HP, but I never dynoed it. It ran well on 93 octane pump gas and went like stink. Started first time...every time, idled rock solid.....ran hard to (at least) 8K rpm. I have since rebuilt the engine to a proper race spec w/ DCOE45s, cam, pistons, etc. It is now ~180HP per the dyno. Needs 110 race gas. It pulls hard. I do miss the instantaneous throttle response of the fuel injection, but I am now vintage "proper".

@David - sent you an email.

@Ted - accepting offers here before I put it up on eBay.

Thanks all--Ben
