After ages she's back on the road! Huge thanks to Kris and Co. at DRS and Tim at Innovative for working out all the kinks. This isn't really a build thread Kris has the details on the engine and swap (~300whp NA).

We put in some seriously strong halos led's that kind of work as main headlights during dusk...they are crazy bright. Julio @ Mulholland Motorsports did the custom quilting/piping alcantara work on the dash as well as the painted dash pieces. The rear clam is attached with aerocatch latches and comes off in minutes, same for the rear engine cover. The dash is the Cosworth Pi Omega and lots of TWRD carbon for good measure :)

Wow.

Which two seats were you able to fit in the car? Looks like you couldn't keep the center part of the console?

Edit: I just noticed that your interior is probably shinier than my exterior.

they are the same Sparco Pro2000's that were installed a looong time ago - if you search under my username you should see posts about it from, 2007? 2008?

the center console fits just snugs in between the seats - debated getting new seats but these are so damn comfortable

Kaz, you have the patience of a SAINT. You really have my respect for seeing the build through to this point. Enjoy it in good health, and you definitely deserve some magazine shoots/worldwide recognition on this thing!!

Love it.
Was the dash difficult to set up ? Does it communicate directly with your ECU or have its own sub-harness ? I'm in the process of building a car & am using the same dash display.

I am running an EFI and yes the dash talks directly with it - you can ping Kris at DRS for the details :) they also have a new version that is full color and with a customizable interface, but overall it's great to have everything in one place with multiple screens and it changes color if there is a warning you can just concentrate on driving

When I pull into my suburban McMansion in my bone-stock '05 Elise and am greeted by the wife and kids, I am rich.

A few hours later when I login to LT and look at a car like this, I am suddenly the poorest beggar in India.

Thanks Kaz!

Quoted For TRUTH! Well, except me having a house, wife, kids, and being rich.
