Yo, I was just reading up on the Lotus Elise 190 which just came out this year in the US, and discovered the following for engine specs :
Toyota supplied, 4 cylinder, dohc 4 valves per cylinder with variable valve timing and lift
Capacity: 1796 cm3
Bore/Stroke: 82.0 mm / 85.0 mm
Maximum Power: 190 hp (141 kW) @ 7800 rpm (DIN 70020)
Maximum Torque: 138 lb ft (181 Nm) @ 6800 rpm (DIN 70020)
Compression Ratio: 11.5:1

Top speed: 150 mph
0 - 100 mph - 0: circa 17.5 sec
100 mph - 0: circa 85m
This car is smaller than the Box in every aspect, and the engine compartment is basically the exact same, if not slightly smaller, size. And it's a mid-engine too....possibilites for a rather pricey motorswap? Thoughts?
- Green means proceed. Yellow means proceed faster. Red means proceed as fast as possible while gesturing -
the new Elise 190 has a Toyota 2zz-ge. That's the motor in the Celica GTS, Matrix XRS, and the Corolla XRS. Activa did a 2zz swap into a Yaris/Vitz/Echo Hatch, but they had to modify the engine bay....I'm guess they modified it with a sledge hammer to the firewall...
