Great to see some V6 options from BOE beyond your FB page. Komo-Tec, SSC & Jubu have been doing this for a while now
I hope a larger TVS SC is in the upgrade path. The non IC 1320 fitted to the S is already maxed-out at stock 345 HP. Lotus' development of the 400's larger SC + CC , Evora race teams & engineers assigned to hot weather testing here in the Gulf all confirm heat soak issues with the 1320 unit.
It would be great to see claimed power curves, backed-up with data logging of ambient & intake temperatures and to know how many dyno runs were done for the peak power claim.
Whats the plan for gearboxes to cope with additional power? I note even the latest Evora 400/410 has its torque pinned at the 300 lb ft level, similar to the older S. Above this torque level on production transmissions theres no warranty from the factory. Only when fitted with the sequential transmission (3-Eleven Race version), does Lotus increase power to 387 ib ft / 460 HP.
SSC are also only offering higher powered V6s (TVS1900 + CC) with race transmissions.
Flashing back several years with all the trans questions about the C6X behind the 2ZZ, yes the trans is a potential issue... particularly so when dedicated to track conditions, but less-so on the street.
We have enough cars running with more power now that I feel real good about street applications.
On the track, VSA has worked out strengthening the trans for 350whp to be driven in anger. There's not a lot of track data beyond that on the stock trans with >420bhp....
Regarding bigger blower, the SSC 1900 isn't too exciting. It's not intercooled and we're already making over 420hp on the stock blower setup with headers, CAI, and a tune (no pulley).
There is a true charged-cooled TVS1900 coming out soon though, as we're providing the tuning for that. It's not our kit, we're just consulting and providing the tuning base. The castings are already complete and early versions are going to the dyno, literally now.
With all the power adders coming to the market for 2GR, more trans parts will follow....
