2006 Elise Aspen white- New REV400 and BOE built engine

I have had this car since 2016 and just kept feeling like it needed more power than stock so I went with a BOE performance engine and supercharger and had them installed about 1000 miles ago.

Asking for $38k north of Denver

Selling because I just don't drive this enough and to buy a rental property


The goal with this build was reliability with the ability to use it at the track or on the street. I have never tracked this car but choose all parts with BOE's input

The body has about 50k miles but the brand new BOE engine and REV 400 have about 1k miles on them

This has the Heat Exchanger (HEX) mounted under the front lip to keep the Air conditioning but still has cooling for the supercharger

Title in hand, mileage may increase slightly as I still enjoy driving it

On 91 pump gas I expect this has at least 360hp and significantly more torque than stock, I have not put this on a dyno, compare to the boe site which uses a larger SC pulley and a stock motor

If you are in an emissions state I will include an emissions compliant ECU for $150 with all systems enabled. Car just passed Colorado emissions which are as bad as California. Stock cat is on the car now

The paint is in good shape but there are a few small spots that I am told can be buffed out (not my expertise)

Quick list of parts: I have put more than $20k into this car in the past 2 years
REV400 supercharger kit with smaller pulley (more boost)
BOE built Engine
BOE tuned
BOE fuel surge tank with Walbro fuel pump
BOE Rear-mount Oil cooler (above passenger rear wheel)
BOE Front mount HEX for cooling the supercharger
BOE Fuel-pressure regulator
Oil catch can (not installed but included)
New tires- AD07s with about 400 miles on them
ITG cold air intake
Radium clam removal kit (you can take off the back half of the car in 20 minutes)
2 ECUs- one for emissions and one for track
new all aluminum radiator (no plastic end caps)
Fidanza Flywheel
ACT HDSS Clutch (can handle the horsepower all around and isn't too stiff)
Soft top and hard top included, soft top has a thin wire that needs to be re-crimped but still works as expected
Valve cover was hydro-dipped
new rotors and breaks with less than 60 miles
BOE rear engine mount (more stiff to help with additional power)
and more that I am probably forgetting



The engine as built by BOE:
9:1 compression
Arias race pistons with Ceramic and Moly
Moly ACL bearings
cometic head gasket
ARP head bolts
JCR Race head
Nikasil cylinders
upgraded oil pump gear set
MWR stage 3 2ZZ cam set (NO cam wiping with these, this is the 2ZZ weakness)
TRD 160F thermostat


Additional stock 2ZZ engine with about 49k miles can be sold for an additional $600 shipped (runs great)

You could probably get more money if you put the stock engine back in and sell the engine/supercharger separate. I may even buy the setup from you. GLWS

sadly true, though I want try to sell as-is before converting to stock and parting
I really don't want to see this thing parted when it is fully built out and turn-key ready

I'm not sure. I even told a guy at work that wants an Elige to consider this. I'd be all over it if I was looking.

There are a few amazing BOE400'd cars, like this one, for sale at the moment and they appear to be an unbelievable bang for the buck. From a normal buyer's perspective these cars are very tempting but as a normal buyer myself, the thought of something mechanically going wrong with one of these built up cars is worrisome. Trying to find a trustworthy shop that can work on stock Lotus is probably hard enough. Finding one that can help out with a built monster has to be hard (and expensive). Most people would be happy with a near stock Elige and the ease of mind of a stock toyota engine and easier resale down the road. Now with that said, I would looove this car or the purple one...just too scared.

I second that. If you do part out I'd consider buying this setup from you too.

Thanks for all the feedback guys! I focused this setup as being turn-key reliable time after time and with the engine being so new and hardened

I'm keeping this up for probably 1 more month before I consider moving back to stock and parting out the upgrades. I'm just sad to take this apart when it's turn-key (though parting is more profitable)

I wish I had seen this, prior to buying mine. That is a killer setup, and in the right neighborhood to me...

38K is a bargain. There must be a better place to advertise for sale.
