2005 - TVS Supercharged Lotus Elise w/ Alitech Shifter

It is with a heavy heart it is time to sell my 2005 Lotus Elise. This car has never been tracked and has tasteful cosmetic modifications as well as functional modifications. It has 41,xxx miles and has all recalls completed. Car comes with Hard top as well as soft top! Supercharger kit plus clutch installed at 38k Miles. Functions flawlessly and with Jermaine's tune runs beautifully. The car is located in CT.

Upgrade List
-LSS Package
-Magic Racing Mirrors (Long Stem Adjustable)
-APR - GTC-200 Adjustable Wing
-APR Canards
-Frame mounted Sector 111/5-Point harness bar
-Exige Wide Side Scoops (non exposed bolts)
-Jl Audio Speaker upgrade
-HID Headlight Upgrade
-3 gauge tree located in front of the shifter
-Autometer Ultralight Boost Guage
-Autometer Ultralight Wideband A/F

The Fun Stuff
-Alitech Shifter (Functions unbelievable well, really transforms the driving experience)
-Vision Function Beyond Stage 2 - TVS Supercharger kit
-Very mild tune for longevity (255 WHP) I had decided to go with this option rather than a stage 2 in case I wanted to increase power. With a pulley swap and new tune, this kit easily produces 290 WHP+
-BOE 1.1 Baffled Oil Pan
-ACT - XTSS Clutch
-Fidenza Lightweight Flywheel
-Upgraded front and rear motor mounts (did not upgrade left and right to reduce vibration)
-MT90 Transmission Fluid
-Stage 2 Exhaust
-Tune Completed by Jermaine

Please feel free to ask my any questions!!!! All upgrades were installed at a very reputable Lotus Shop in NY.

Additional Photos!

Also: This is a completely clean titles car!

The bad: On the lower right hand side of the bumper, the car has a fiberglass filler that was a result of a piece of metal in the road. The damage to the clam is about the size of a quarter. In the photos the repair has been made however it is clearly visible!

What does that Alitech shifter do and how does it work. Clutch less shifts? Sequential shifting? I'm clueless. It sure looks fancy tho!

I could be wrong but I believe it's still a 6 speed, but designed to reduce shifter flex.

Here's their website

And here's a demonstration

I've heard it works better for taller people, but for if you have to move the seat up then the lever hits your leg. It looks like its great fun though. I don't want to detract from the FS post though, hope the free bump for the OP does not bother him.

The Alitech shifter just tightens up the shifting experience and allows for customized shift lengths. The stock shifter setup is not the most sturdy setup and this addresses it, plus lets face it... it is absolutely beautiful! My current setup allows for a shift from 1st to 2nd gear just by closing my hand from an open position to a closed fist. Very short travel!

Slow: I am 5'5" and it is absolutely perfect! I would say this problem would occur if you were 5'3" or shorter.

Did you have to do any cutting or drilling to get the Wing or Canards mounted?

I can confirm. I'm the same height and it is borderline. Any shorter and your seat will hit the shifter housing. Great shifter! Solid, precise, customizable shifting.
