As far as I know I'm using a USDM RSX ECU, that is probably why mine worked. We got everything on the dash to work thru the CAN outputs in kpro. We got the battery charge light to work also, but that had to be wired separately.

If you need I can send you my wire schematic. Sounds like you know what you're doing though.

I will say for perspective buyers of this car the Honda motor/drivetrain completely transforms the lotus for the better. Always plenty of torque on tap and a good uptick in long term reliability IMO. Not to mention the aftermarket support is unreal.

After paying for a swap of my own this car is a steal with all the toyota/lotus parts included. Good luck with the sale!

Sorry if it came off as something else.
No problem man. Free bumps anytime!

I love this car and surprised it hasn't sold yet. I want it for myself, but living in Vegas and buying a car without AC would be utterly moronic. Been trying to convince friends to buy it though...

- 1300lbs, 170hp. British.
- 2100lbs, 200hp. Japanese.
- 2350lbs, 600hp. British.
- 2900lbs, 140hp. Japanese.
- 3500lbs, 280hp. Italian.

You can get AC to work, but it took me a while to sort out and you'll need to do custom AC lines, and probably pull the motor out as there is very little room. One of the conditions of doing the K swap was having AC so my wife would still drive/ride in it in the summer time lol. I'm sure glad I have it now that it's warming up though. I drive this car to work whenever I can.

I had to cram it in my with my K24 so you prob have a bit more room with the K20. Also the only compressor that fits is the stock one. I assume this is the same as the celica GTS.

this looks awesome and I'm in the Midwest. In your opinion is this something that would be fairly easy to inherit as 2nd owner with not too much knowledge on all that goes into a Kswapped Elise?

Lowering the price to $39.5k. Will not include old engine, transmission and misc parts. Everything on the car goes with the car, everything off stays unless you really want them. This is one heck of a deal for a completely set up car.

Wish I knew how to edit my original post but I couldn't figure it out. Anyway, I have added APR side skirts, enjoyed it for another summer and now lowering the price to $37k. Also want to mention I blanked off the radio with a carbon plate with a USB outlet and a 12v outlet. All I used the radio for was to charge my phone anyway. Still have all of the parts. For $37k, this car is a crazy good deal. I am not really sure how anyone could choose a SC Toyota version over the Honda. It is that much better.

Yes, It really doesn't have much difference between the stock and the Honda Usability wise. Plus I have documented most of the items pretty well. Let me know if you have questions regarding certain areas. The K went in without major mods

Thanks, It has the shifter111 from Inokinetic. It has the cables and shifter, so much better than stock feel.

I’ll either be buying or building one like this next year. Already have a built K24/20 and trans...just not ready yet to pull the trigger. If you’re still selling this in 2019, it may be the one. Very nice car, glws.

I'm so sad this car hasn't sold yet.

$37K is a great price for this setup if it is well sorted!

Thinking of K-swapping? Here's an idea of the cost involved.

2006 LOTUS EXIGE (ASPEN WHITE) Honda K24A2 + MPx90 supercharger. 322whp/271lb-ft @13psi. Build thread here.
1994 AUTOZAM AZ-1 MAZDASPEED Japanese Super Kei!
2014 FIAT 500e Hydroelectric powered EV daily driver.
2007 SUZUKI SV650 Track bike.

Amazing car. I admire you guys with the know how and vision to essentially redesign/rebuild the car like this. I'm a NC Miata (Mazda rotary history) lurker here trying to decide if I want to switch to an Elise or not. From a beauty perspective, it's a no brainer, but from a maintenance/cost/reliability perspective, not so encouraging. In my location in TX, it would have to pass emissions. I'm guessing this doesn't so what would be required?

I'm not anywhere near my post limit to be able to send private messages, and don't want to spam the forum to get there. email me at [email protected] to discuss the car.
