Atwell, according to the almighty ones at Lotus USA, the HTU doesnt net more power per se...... It eliminates the boost restriction in the lower gears and this adds torque in the midrange. It also is "supposed" to have better interface communication to allow easier reading of the OBD data as well as eliminate some faults noted in the original specification ecu. The dyno will elucidate any real world power gains. I am planning to dyno the car stock first, remove the ecu, run in for 30 or so miles with the new ecu installed then make a few pulls after installation..... Stay tuned...
Oh yes, the factory 20202 brochure, a Lotus Pen and an Esprit/Lotus Tie came in the package too! My son will love the pen. The Brochure goes in my garage, and the tie..... Well, havent figured out what I am going to use it for yet....
