Just bought a 2012 Lotus Evora the non S model. I would love to supercharge. Anyone make a kit yet? Thanks!!

Someone didn't bother to do their home work. :p

Like ShadowWulf stated BOE makes a kit as he has linked to. Others (very few) have done the conversion by sourcing stock S parts. MonkeyWrench Racing sells a wonky kit but I wouldn't recommend it as well as the S supercharger itself.

The BOE kit makes some great power WAAAY above stock S power levels. I would opt for BOE's complete kit if I was going to have a go at it. At $12k plus another 20-30hrs of labor to install, it isn't cheap.

Moot point now but with the delta of the prices on the S1 S cars being not much more over a non S - compared to S/C'ing a non S - why did you go NA if you wanted to supercharge? Just asking, I have an NA myself and would love to SC! When I bought there was a big difference in price than what I found my 2011 NA for.

Simply Sports Cars (SSC) do a kit also I believe.

SSC did an intercooled kit specific to the Exige V6, while BOE did an intercooler kit specific to the Evora. The two cars while using the same engine have greatly different packaging needs from the fit of the SC under the body work to the piping runs and radiators for cooling. Don't try to adapt the SDC kit to an Evora, even the manifold is different. SSC did an earlier 1900 kit for the Evora, but without and intercooler, not worth going that path.

Thanks all! I bought this an car because it was a rebuilt title for 25k. It had only front bumper damage and no airbag pop or any other type of damage. I figure the 25k cost plus the super charger cost I’d still be a bit less than an 2012 S Not sure I will need the charger yet I didn’t even receive the car from the shipper..

If I do it I’ll go BOE. Best bang for the buck and a complete kit. I’d live to do the kit plus e85 to see the results
