Id love one, how much it set you back if you dont mind us asking? Whats insurance like?

20v turbo would be interesting! Or try b16a honda, lightweight 170bhp! :)

You can pick up a standard Elise for about 7-8k now I guess. Plenty of pitfalls, but plenty of fun :)

lol they were there b4 i parked up, i went round the back :lol:

I'd like to fit the Type R, Ben can you run them on the oe managment if you re-wire the loom.

Apparently with a 20V or Type R lump round the track not much would keep up 8) it would say bye bye to a 400bhp Saph, even my clio did that :lol:

yea, you cna run the original engine loom and manipulate the stock ECU to ignore the immobiliser functions, and retain full mapping facilities....on the K20A that is.

The VAG lump might give you higher output instnatly, but the K20 has the ability to be turbo/supercharged on a stock motor, and in K24 trim spit out 640bhp on a stock engine. Plus running an elise with a low revving tractor engine would be horrid.

yer i thought with the torgue lower down it would be odd, not as Lotus intended. Although i went in a 320bhp 20v Elise (ihi vf34 + 440cc + emerald) and that was allot of fun. Im yet to go out in the honda powered one but like the idea of reving the crap out of it. :D

I know your not a "fan" of the 20v design and a lover of the Honda.

Can you tweek the std Honda ecu's to work or know anyone who can.

about 4 miles away 8)

The honda is a superior engine.

The OE honda ecu can be manipulated to run any configuration engine from na to boosted.
