Oh man...

First off, you would be best served trying this with the 4G63 out of a Eclipse GS-T, since the trans and orientation might make things a bit more simple. (Front wheel drive easier to swap into the Elise)

That is a assuming the rest of the swap in general would be easy, which it wont. Why do you want 600hp in an Elise? Have you driven one with stock hp levels? Or are you just bench racing right now? Out of curiosity, how old are you?

Its funny the masses in this world assume the only place to get a built Evo motor is AMS. That, combined with the widebody comment, leads me to believe you are a younger kid. NO issues with that, Im just trying to diagnose how realistic your ambitions are.

And no, your costs would be well above 45k.

Why swap in a 4g63 when the lighter 2zz can make that power for less money, and wthout an engine swap?
You just didnt say the 2zz will make 500-600 hp for cheaper than a 4g63 did you? Really, do you honestly believe that? I really hope you mean it will be cheaper because of the engine swap cost.

Jesus I thought this guy was gone... rotfl
