111R dyno?

2155 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Patricko
Okay so as a future Elise owner, I was wondering if any of the tuning companies that we know of have dyno'ed the 111R. I have heard rumors that there is "product" development, and I would assume that any good "product" development would naturally require dyno tuning. Do any of the companies have any dyno numbers yet? I know that there has to be a baseline dyno run out there somewhere. I was wondering what the extra 10hp lotus was able to get us looked like, and also if the 190 hp seems like a reasonable claim.

This might have been answered before, but with the press release, and with some parts of the world already having the 111R, I can't take not haveing the most important technical data from the engine.

The output to the wheels is frightening weak, but I guess that's just a consequence of the type of dyno used.

They also list a "flywheel" horsepower number achieved by adding the drivetrain losses (presumeably "measured" by a coast-down test). :rolleyes:

It's DIN corrected. SAE correction would delete a couple hp.
my german is not too good... What is the Elise 220R?
It's just their name for a planned Lotus Elise with an engine swap to a more powerful, modified Civic Type R engine (the new 2.0L one)
Here it is...

First achievement optimization of the Elise111R 20.04.2004 16:52:41 KOMO TEC successfully locked the development of the first two performance phases. Already the optimization of inlet and outlet system showed that in the Toyota engine still another substantial Leistungspotenzial is. A new high-grade steel in connection with an flowoptimized carbon air box in the exchange to the original air cleaner system bring a clearly noticeable increased output of 10 to sport mufflers +/- 1PS in a broad number of revolutions volume. The increase of the torque (upper curve family) is particularly remarkable over almost the entire speed range. A pleasant side effect is the sonore, sporty sound of the plant, which however never importunately works. The second performance phase contains a 4:1 high-grade steel fan elbow union, which leads particularly in the middle speed range to a clear rise of Drehoment and achievement (without illustration) Both performance phases are offered with TUEV entry. (§19.3). Here we show the two metrology records individually. The first diagram shows the unchanged vehicle in the original state. Unfortunately performance data announced by the manufacturer were not reached yet, because it concerned a completely new vehicle with only few km run achievement. After the einfahrzeit we proceed from a reaching of the being. However our measures will reach the increased output also with engines, which exhibit the values indicated by Lotus. Measurement original vehicle: Measurement with our sport muffler and carbon air box: For future phases of the increase in output as well as for the running employment in the coming season we developed already special forging pistons for the Toyota machine, which exhibit very promising achievement yields together with further measures with very high stability. Parallel to the engine development we co-ordinated our proven JRZ sport chassis with the changed weight distribution and new geometrical conditions of the Elise111R. This chassis is immediately available with us. Information to the kit phase 1: Engine kit Elise 111R
