Why an Esprit:
When i was in Grade School my Grandfather owned a Orange Lotus Europa, I was fascinated the moment i saw it, and when He took me for a ride I was hooked, His Europa was so different than anything I had ever seen. This planted a seed in my mind and have had the plan to get one some day.
Upgrades: None so far
Problems:

The car has been sitting for at least a year, Purchased the car from a Doctor that lives in Santa Cruz. When the Doctor last drove the Esprit He said it had a boost loss and thinks the Turbo is Blown or at least not operable.'

Info:
My plan is to change all the fluids first and possibly start it, I of course want to figure out if the Turbo is on fact blown and of course replace it, Replace Manifold, Possibly exhaust, Most definitely the cam belt, most of the hoses and anything else LEW community recommends
