Chris Wooltorton swapped his MGB for a Lo­tus Elan SE Turbo three years ago. He says: ‘ The car was stan­dard when I bought it but I up­graded the brakes with grooved discs and Aero­quip hoses. The sus­pen­sion was con­verted to an adjustable GAZ set-up and as they also lower the car by 10mm the han­dling is even bet­ter than stan­dard. A K&N air fil­ter com­bined with a PNM 57mm stain­less steel sports ex­haust helps the en­gine breathe more eas­ily; it’s more free-revving and it ups the power by about 20bhp. For good mea­sure irid­ium spark plugs and 7.5mm Mag­necor ig­ni­tion leads have been fit­ted. The re­sult is a quick car with han­dling that’s fan­tas­tic. It’s also com­fort­able and lovely to drive.’
