Seems to me the Honda has larger ports so sacrifices low-midrange torque and then picks up at the top.

The drivability of the Elise with less weight and a better presentation of torque would be better than if it had an 1800 honda lump.

Can't see why people want to stick power aids on the thing:rolleyes:

cylinder flow and drivability in a small displacement engine are not necessarily complementary, imo.
I reckon this is backed up by the variable valve and alternative lobe technolgy.

I'm not against the swaps.
As I get older I seem to tend to value things more if they remain close to the manufacturers concept.


I'm sure I'd be mightily impressed by a Honda hybrid but I don't think I would convert a rare car.
