Very nice but wouldn't trading in for an Exige be more cost effective? Just curious. Is the Honda powerplant better than a SC 2ZZ?

How did you change the elise's flat engine cover to a Exige's slanted engine cover?

Hp is around 250bhp at the flywheel. The car performs very well coupled with the great gearbox that comes with the k20.

Sc 2zz was not an option to install, as the car was originally a rover powered elise. As for trading - the money ive spent on my car i could have bought an early N/A exige, some people may have preferred to just buy the exige, but im happy with my car, nice and light at 860kg with a good well proven conversion kit: Elise Exige Honda engine conversion car is also fitted with Nitrons and some expensive carbon bits.
