we’ve been delayed but finally got to view our project. Definitely more project than expected but not deterred... yet LOL. The owner bought this from Lotus who were using it to test parts for future model. Definitely will need recommendations for replacing parts. Windscreen is missing but I won’t know the more until I can pull it out. Your opinions and recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
Tight budget and classic Elan don’t compute. But good luck with your journey! Your right, anything above 200 HP will destroy the drivetrain (If it hasn’t already). You really don’t need more than 150HP with these cars.
I don't doubt that you have been told a bunch of things about this car, but I seriously doubt there is any factory involvement. Build your own ss lines are unlikely, as is a German fusebox on the wrong side of the car. That turbo would melt through the hood right before the engine blew. Lotus was already building 907 motors in 72, and the twink was not going to meet emissions going forward.
this is some cowboy's dream
Looks like they did nice work, but at half the power you were told it would be stressed.
