Taking the place of Great Lakes Lotus Club's regularly scheduled start-of-the-month meeting, Shinoo Mapleton, founder of Sector111 will be at Auto Europe on Saturday June 27th, 9:30am through 1:00pm.

Shinoo will be discussing new and upcoming products including the SECANT Lotus Elise / Honda conversion as well as Sector111’s new Project Cars, the “Black Widow” and “Project Nirvana”.

In addition to Shinoo, Auto Europe will be throwing open their shop to those wanting to get their tech inspections done in advance of our upcoming Waterford track event. If you’d like to take advantage of this, please contact Tom Schick at Auto Europe in advance on (248) 645 6300 so he can ensure you get taken care of. And any questions, just drop me a line at [email protected] :)

More info will be there on Saturday :D

The Honda conversion was developed by SECANT, who are actually based in Detroit area - I don't know much about it, but details at SECANT Vehicles

Note that this is pretty expensive i.e. $15k to $20k I think! But plenty of people have spent that on tuning out a Toyota engine and at 320hp it does offer a level of performance / reliability that is beyond what can be achieved with the Toyota engine.

But ..... come along on Saturday and hear it from Shinoo.

I met one of the engineers at the Ortonville Fireworks. VERY interesting mod. I remember reading about it in a major magazine where they did a comparison to the Exige S tuned. It would be fun to see them talk more about their swap in depth.

I'm pretty sure it's a GM Ecotec engine, not a Honda...
You're right - like I said, I don't know too much about it!

Checked the website: Supercharged 2 litre, 4 cylinder DOHC GM Ecotec

It was great meeting some new people and chatting it up. It was very cool for Shinoo from S111 to hang out and shoot the breeze with us.

Here are some pics from Saturday's event:
















Cheers,
Ryan

Looks like you had a good turn out and of course some nice photos:)
Was the first photo of the s1 a silver car before turning yellow?

Also, any info on the fuel tank starvation fix they are now going to offer?

The V2 retrofitted tanks are now available. Tom and the gang at Auto Europe have already installed one into one of their customers cars. The White Exige in the pictures also has a V2 retrofitted tank in it as well.:coolnana:
