Try contacting Silver Star in Thousand Oaks, CA (805-371-5400). When I went to pick up my stock exhaust after having the Stage II installed, I noticed that they had 3 or 4 used stock exhausts sitting in a back room. I assume these were from customers who had the Stage II installed but didn't want their original exhaust back.Ditto said:[
I'm also interesten in the stock exhaust (from the manifold back) if anyone upgrades and wants to get rid of theirs at a reasonable price. [/B]
I think the exhaust manifold is the same, and I already have two of those.chrisngrod said:Stan brought up the fact that it appears to be a standard Celica header. Does anyone have pictures of it?
That's because they don't have ElisesSurferjer said:I can't believe you guys didn't get the "Lotus Performance" plastic pieces! I assumed every Elise came with them.
Nope no wing, or stickers on my car. Looks stock to the untrained eye, but I bet it would give your car a run for its money (4.7sec. 0to60 for over $10,000 less). Weighs a little more (2164lbs. right now) than an Elise, but it's also got more torque and ponies. The engine and tranny have also been dropped a bit to lower the center of gravity.Do you guys know where I can pick up a triple tiered wing (maybe 4 or 5' tall?) and some TYPE-R NAWS stickers for my Elise?
according to R&T mag, "...the only major changes are a revised intake system, different exhaust and a Lotus-tuned ECU."Ditto said:. I want the engine plastics so my motor swap will look more "finished". Also, as I said I would rather put on my list of mods, an elise engine rather than a Celica engine, and since the egine is the same and mine puts out more power than either... I don't see a problem with that.
<yawn>raggedy1 said:So putting the Elise valve covers on does not get you an Elise motor. Your list of mods would be inaccurate regardless if you're making more HP or not.
also, the Lotus 2zz hits the 2nd cam at 6200 vs the Celica's 6400 rpm changeover. This allows the Elise to stay on the 2nd cam when shifting at redline (and let's remember that the ECU allows visits to 8500 rpm which is 500 rpm over the listed redline). The Celica would drop out of the 2nd cam even when shifted at redline - a big complaint from the moment the car was released to the market; Lotus' ECU has cured this problem.
