The engine is a 1.8 L with 120 hp stock. The new engine is about 140 and maybe a little more after I install my Japspeed Exhaust and I know it doesn't sound much.... cause its not.
The car weighs 1,666 pounds, yep 1,666 pounds so when I tell people its only got 120 hp they don't suspect the launch from 0 to 60 in 6 seconds
I got a lotus though cause I'm stationed in Germany and what I look for in a car is driver involvement, and handling. And my baby doesn't disappoint. No ABS, No Power steering, NO traction control (don't really need it for 120 hp). The Elise will do EXACTLY what you tell it to do, for better or worse
Independent Double wishbone suspension on all 4s and the new toyo R888s came in, was two days after engine died
So after getting a quote for an engine to be 7,000 euros, around 10,000 us dollars! I decided to do it my self.
Be posting more pics!!!
