i wanna know what kind of transmission is in it though.
I would assume a b-series. It would be the exact same thing except they have to figure out some way to make the linkage work.
wow, I was looking at that completely wrong, i guess im a little too fucked up today.
B series in the pre stateside cars were pretty common.
evens SCCM did a write up on one.
yeah this is pretty old news...like 4 years old
I thought those cars were powered by a B18C5 for a while.
no, offically, Lotus has never put a honda engine in the elise (or exgie) from the factory. They came stock with the "Rover K-series" engine, which is not the best performer, and does not pass US emissions. People have swaped in b-series for a while for a few reasons. One is the Honda engines are just better performers then the old K-series. Second, honda engines have already met the US EPA standards, so emission problems are no longer a problem.
Lotus actually went to Honda and asked. However, ended with the GTS from a Celica. Wonder what it would be like if had the new K-series.
it would porbably be breaking down all the time
i saw a lotus on the highway yesterday, sweet as hell. i didnt realize they were so small though.
Pretty clean swap. I bet it is fast if it really only weighs 1350lbs. Oh well at least it looks cool.
