For sale, 2005 Lotus Elise with Honda K20A swap. $52,000. Everything is fully functional, the only light on in the dash is the airbag light (no airbags currently fitted).

The K20A engine and transmission swap was performed approximately 5 years ago by the previous owner. JDM engine has roughly the same mileage as the car itself. A number of upgrades including Hondata KPro ECU, baffled oil pan, DC sports header, de-cat j-pipe and stage 2 exhaust. Radium engineering coolant expansion tank, aluminum triple pass radiator and almost entirely silicone hoses. K20A transmission includes a LSD, Inokinetic shifter111 with GS and CG shift cables. Fires right up on the first crank, runs cool, and looks like stock engine installation.

Suspension is 46mm, 3 way adjustable Nitron Triples. 550lbs front and 700lbs rear spring rates. Monkey wrench racing adjustable front sway bar with adjustable links and urethane bushings. Sector 111 adjustable rear toe link and Sector 111 front steering arms. All set-up by V2 Motorsports.

Rebuilt brake calipers with braided lines, Hawk HT10 pads, DBA5000 two piece rotors, extended wheel studs.

Forges LSS wheels with fairly new RE-71R (205/45R16 & 245/40R17).

Comes with a bunch of spares including set of used tires (>50% tread), original steering wheel, both airbags, Lotus car cover, harness bar, two sets of new Hawk brake pads, battery tender, and a ton of miscellaneous spares and hardware (some new and some used stock parts from the engine swap in case you ever wanted to go back).

The Bad – Typical amounts of rock chips and paint touch-ups. Front Starshield was removed and replaced with new 3M film, but application of the film is a bit rough. Hard top headliner was removed and the interior of the hard top is coated in bed-liner type material. Area behind the seats is a bit of a home brew solution to cover the Hondata ECU (looks fine until you get behind the panel). No stereo, no A/C (has heat). Previous owner had half a dozen track days on the vehicle, I only drove on the street.

Nothing other than typical maintenance. I picked up a better flowing intake manifold for it and planned to collect some parts over winter.
