here's the thread. It was on the hotly debated "spotted SC Elise in Miami," if you guys remember.MORE NEWS
Toyota is planning to cash in on its F1 programme with an AMG-style tuning operation that is creating a range of performance-enhancing engine kits. Developed by Toyota Motorsport in Germany all products will come with a full factory warranty and service back-up in the UK. Among the kits going on sale before the end of the year maybe sooner is a Supercharger for the 1.8l 2G-ZZengine Corolla T-Sport. Running a Roots-style blower from Japanese firm Ogura, it bumps power from 192BHP to a Honda Intrgra Type-R beating 228BHPat 7800RPM. Torque increases from 133lb to 184lb at 3900RPM. 0-62 Times will be improved to around a low 6secs despite the retention of the standard cars's gearbox. Top speed will rise to inexcess of 150 MPH.
I'm not sure, It says that the kit will be available by the end of this year.originally posted by 1FASTMX5
How would this work in getting one done through lotus or in keeping a valid warrranty?
i agree with you on both counts. maybe 240 hp Then you work on reducing the weight a 100 lbs or so!originally posted by 1FASTMX5
Well I would for sure forego big HP numbers via aftermarket if I could get this mild SC done under warranty. I think 230hp would keep me real happy not to mention the healthy torque increase. I'm starting to feel exhausted in how bad I want this car. The nice weather is making it even worse.
He is refering to the rumor that the SC actually will put out 240hp-255hp... Now that would be really dangerous combo against anything. I have driven a light weight car with that power to weight ratio, and all I can say is acceleration feels like a fast sport bike rather then a sports car.. The fun factor is way off the chartstransio said:Please clarify: HP is a rumor or SC is a rumor?
You can't really compare that. The Works package is added to a car that is already supercharged from the factory. It must be much easier to replace the supercharger on a car that already had one than add one to a car that was normally aspirated.Ridgemanron said:The 'Works' SC by Mini comes with suspension and exhaust upgrades that are defined at $4,500 for parts, roughly $7,000 installed.
