Stock engine, tranny and clutch

I think your motor will last if you keep it on E85. Tranny, depending on how much heat you put it through. I always use Redline shockproof and knock on wood have never shredded any gear. I think a tranny cooler should be installed if you track it often.

I'm using Redline MT90 , and I do have a tranny cooler. Twenty min sessions and cool downs. I change the tranny fluid and Liqui Moly 5w40 engine oil every 500 min of track time or so.
It drives fantastic! Im up with the big boys now on the track , even on the straights.
Built motor and E153 is in the wing for now

Honestly, I would pickup up one of Blackwatch's C60 trans with his modified gear set. The gear ratios that you get with his setup will only help your car go faster. Switching to a E153 hurts the gear ratios thus keeps the motor out of the correct RPM band.

Update. Car is still running strong. Going to the track on average 2 days per month. The main issue is that the nuts and studs loosen up on the turbo exhaust housing on this Radium kit . I've even resorted to inconel studs with super duper thread locker and these funky nuts that have fasteners on them ... Improved but still get loose. Managed to lose one inconel stud ... Cost as much as gold ! Gonna have the housing welded during winter.

^+1 for safety wire. Properly done safety wire is a thing of beauty and won't loosen. It is a bit of a fussy job, but at least you wouldn't have to pull the EM. If the nuts can't turn, the studs won't back out.

The Exige i bought has that turbo kit. The previous owner went thru stages because the stock/tranny gave up. The stock head valvetrain was first to go, fixed that by bullet proofing the engine and then tranny gave. Went with Kaaz gearset with E153 to Quaife sequential and now the whole engine down to the driveshaft are all changed. I acquired the car and doing some engine bay clean up. Installed AN fittings and hardlines going to the turbo. Shield here and there, wrap here wrap there. Checked all nuts and bolts torque with torque seal.

Yes you, Peewee.

Swap the tiny M8 studs with M10 ARP studs.... That's what we do and will solve the problem. You don't want to weld it....

Thank for your input guys. I'll integrate your ideas into my winter project.
I do have the e153 tranny with kaaz lsd ... From my days in MR2 world.
It looks like the only place to get the Kaaz gear set is MWR. I've looked and Camry,Solara and Celica gears. I'm having difficulty deciding where to put my money... Lol.

If was you I would just keep driving it sounds like a good combo. I've just put the GTX2863r on mine and hope to make similar power to you on 93, my engines a built MWR 1.93litre, however the heads standard so I'm keeping the RPMs below 8100rpm to help keep it ticking over. I think the stock tranny will be fine unless you're really hard on it

I'll probably tune for e85 as well but anything over 360rwhp and you're asking for trouble on the GB

2005 Elise 111R, 2litre, 315hp, FF275 Turbo kit 6lbs. Soon to be 400+

How tall are the gears? I was looking at bwr?s offering. I?m supercharged and first and second gear seem to short. I want to hit 60 in first gear

The car is still running ! Two to three track days per month.
I have an E153 tranny with Kaaz LSD. Just trying to figure out gearing . Might just install the 5th out of a Solara or something .

Over winter it'll get some TLC, and I'm hoping to bump up the boost from 12 to 18. Will run high compression pistons -12.3
I am actually for over 360whp
