Cool Built Long Block 2ZZGE Coming Soon!

We have kicked off a partnership with Mountune USA to supply full long blocks of the 2ZZGE engines for our S2 Lotus variants. I've worked with [email protected] when he was with Cosworth. Ken is a serious Lotus fan and a truly passionate partner in this effort. Mountune USA have full machining and engine dyno capability. This will allow us to confirm each engine we build - this is especially important for those of you who don't live locally. You will have the confidence that the engine has been run and broken-in properly. Mountune are staffed with very experienced engine builders (formerly Cosworth) that have built F1, Indy and other engines for high level race series. We will be offering some of the best built 2ZZGE available.

We will continue to develop major components for the 111 platform. Each year we will identify 2-3 major components that are needed. Expect more detailed info later this year...I'm committed to keep these cars running!

They just completed a TwinCam engine for a Europa that we are restoring. See below...

Great news, Shinoo.....there's definitely a need for this service/product.

Will this be preconfigured packages or can we get custom long blocks built (cam, porting, unneeded coolant ports welded closed, etc.)

Yes, Mountune can build mild to wild. You know the old saying, "Speed costs money how fast do you want to go?"

We will have a couple of standard engine builds that we plan to stock but the custom solutions will be built to order.
