why not charlie? the forcefed exige S (same engine as elise) is getting 250 rwhp.. why cant the elise do that as well?
the key part is 'for the road', the forcedfed kit isn't street legal, none of them are so far.
Couldn't you get the same gains that you get with the exige s with a SC elise? I am just wondering if we should be able to do a tune on a SC elise and get 235rwhp as well? Is it just going to be a matter of cracking the ecu?
Yes, the only difference is the intercooler, the S has protection with a temperature sensor that pulls timing etc when its gets too hot. Presumably the elise sc version will have that too, otherwise if it didn't its a higher running risk.
I've been reliably informed the new ecu will be a lot harder to crack, i'm also not sure if i'm going to continue doing it after this current model ( sigh of relief from lotus
), but then again i always liked a challenge.
I'm also not sure if this model coming is the new ecu revision or if its the one thats late 08, since the federal requirements are different for the OBD II systems, however they could be applied to the current revision of the T4E ecu easily enough.
And I already did get the same or better gains with the 06 SC elise
