I'm going to throw the seats back in the Grace after work and bring the car along as it's not yet in for it's gearbox replacement yet.

Great night for a drive the evening was crisp but clear.

Six cars turned up 4 lotus 7s (Me Birdman, JSMN and an other turbo powered Fraser) + 2 Lotus Elise cars, as all ways a great night and a fun drive.

Cheers Stephen

Yes, thanks for organising Steve, it was a great night out in the crisp frosty air.

Have discovered what the exhaust problem is, I have blown out the seal in the exhaust flange just below the headers and O2 sensor. I think it must have been under some bending moment as a result of the engine being rolled slightly to the left. Should be an easy fix, but I might get Mark to redo the pipe at this point to correct the exhaust pipe angle through to the muffler.
