"And does anyone know the PROS and CONS of having a SC on the Elise"

PROS:

torque, flexibility in engine...obviously quicker !..less effort required to keep it on the boil etc

CONS: more heat to get rid of, small weight increase, try to find a tuning company that offers a warranty then no probs there either, less MPG, ...not much else really ;)

Ive been driving a supercharged Elise for the last 15K miles/6 months and wouldnt go back now.....

230bhp/195lb/ft and 790Kg is good fun :)

mine is chargecooled.

Basically there is an additional radiator hung underneath the OEM one, also an oil cooler feeding the supercharger in the front nose and another for the sump in the right hand side pod.

Pipes run through the sills of the car front/rear.

Engine is rebuilt with forged pistons, shorter forged rods, ported head, big valves and hotter cams, new ECU, additional 2 fuel injectors

currently running approx 230bhp/195 lb/ft with 10psi boost at 7K revs max...car weighs 795Kg so its pretty nippy ;)

mine is a customised conversion from here www.turbotechnics.com
