Hello to all, i am carmine from rome-italy..
For now i dont own an lotus but an z3m coupe s50 whit few mod for better track perfomance(big brake and suspension)..
After 4 years of owning it,start the think about an different sportcar..
I hope to find few infos about toyota upgrade motor(turbo-superchaged) or vag/honda exige s1...Drive one time an exige superchaged and really an experience!
In few word i like really the lotus,especially the exige s1 and elise/exige s2 style,but appart the exige superchaged,dont had more power(ok also an s1 whit 150hp can handle on the track my z3m)but i want an beast;),over 250hp region...

Sorry for my bad english and complimets for your cars,only true car fanatic owns it:clap:

I love reading peoples post from a different country, i like putting an accent to them in my head not sure why
anyway Welcome!

I think you can just swap out an Exige engine to a Honda VTEC then Turbo charge for 250 BHP but dont take my word from it, i think you can.

Welcome Carmine! For added power, also check out this thread.

Since Komo-Tec is on your side of the ocean, it might be just what you're looking for.

Komo-tec kit is built from exige s. Do they have supercharge kit for NA cars? Since he lives in europe, not many tuners I know of there.

Welcome! I'm jealous that you live in Rome... Saltimbocca alla Romana is sounding good right about now. Good luck finding the right car!

They also have a kit for the Elise 111R-it's called the "Turbodrive 250S"-odd name, since it's a supercharger :shrug: It'll create 265bhp, according to the Hangar 111 site.
