Closer and closer to launching our Evora Chargecooler Series Blower kits... I estimate we are within a 3 week window.
Here are our 3 development mules and some pre-production pics. Our relationship with Harrop TVS blowers goes back to the beginning of the REV kits for the 2ZZ about 10 years ago. It's great to continue that relationship as we worked hard to develop this kit for the Evora, Evora S, and 400+ cars using their 1900TVS blower housing for the 2GR!
I would estimate that the 400 cars will likely not pursue our BOE Evora Chargecooler Kit, but the extreme power mungers will appreciate the massive heat exchangers and the more capable 1.9L TVS rotors vs the 1.7L rotors in the 400 cars...
As you’re thinking about your car and plans, some notes:
Manual and IPS will be supported. The S and NA cars will see massive benefit in power. Beyond what I’ve posted previously, more on power delivery in later posts. IPS cars will come with an additional trans kit that fortifies the IPS trans for the power— and generally just makes it a better transmission (see the Better IPS thread I started here on LT). Boost and tuning is conservative and not an issue on the 2GR-FE at 7PSI.
Fit and finish, brackets, etc, etc are all OE or better level, IMO. No grinders or jigsaws used on our kits! lol
DIY: The installation instructions are quite complete for the DIYer and the install does NOT require clam removal
However, it’s not what I would call a super easy install. Estimate a *long* weekend for the DIY and some cursing when it comes time to install the belt
Flash tune completed with your laptop and email.
BOE Install: We will provide in-house installations, dyno verification, and custom tweaking of the flash tune. The tune is developed with our own BOE Fastworks software, which is the most capable tuning suite for the Lotus ECU on the planet- and by a large margin (outside of Lotus themselves of course!). Nothing else comes close to our Lotus ECU capabilities! As you can imagine, the best hardware in the world means nothing without the best software to make use of it
For installation, outside of us and yourself, many know Allen at VSA Motorsports and TJ over at Carlock (used to be at Gator)
. They are super certified for these installations and have already been briefed on the install, labor estimates, familiar with uploading the tunes, verification, etc, etc…
Kris at DRS (CA), Ryan at Ferrari of Denver, or Frank at Concours Cars in Colorado Springs would be a couple other great places to look for installation as well. I’m sure there are many others as well.
Personal Note: This system makes the Evora go as fast as it looks. I have to say the blower looks right at home in the engine bay too and especially so looking through the glass (although that's hard to get a good pic of). I'll get some better photos of production parts, which are on the white car on the lift, but the main difference is that brackets/etc are all nicely wrinkle finished and the air-filter is sealed from the engine bay to aid in appearing at OE as possible (and help with keep the intake cooler).
