Found out there was an ecu available from Lotus.
Saw it on Monkey wrench website.It lowers the shift
point to 5,800 rpm and decreases afr. It may change
timing curve also but I can only confirm the first two.
A really nice side benefit is my car is less likely to stall
when taking off.I have light weight flywheel and
pressure plate so starting off was a little tricky.
Now it's no problem and there is a small increase in
power overall.If you want a tune for a na car this
is a way to do so without messing with your stock ecu.
At $1380 it's not cheap but less expensive than a
new stock ecu and a tune.

You actually need to send Monkeywrench your ECU or pay a $600 core charge. So the total is $2k if you want to keep your stock ECU. Plus $200 for them to program in your VIN.

Just get a spare ecu and send to BOE and get it properly tuned for the way your car is set up hardware wise.

A friend of mine just picked up an Elise and is apparently having some issues connecting to the ECU. Is there anyone who can verify a specific model of a scan tool that can read the codes?

Any good OBD II reader should work. I use a Bluetooth OBD II reader from Amazon and the Android Torque Pro app on my tablet. Gives access to all codes and allows reset. I have it mounted in the car all the time and have access to build gauges for any ECU parameter. Love it.
