Back at it again.

This is where we proud owners can upload information and pictures of our pride-and-joys (their Exige that is..)

Have you had it weighed since all the changes?
My engine spec will be similar (if I build it)
Sleeved block
10.5/1 Wiseco pistons
Crower rods
2.6" pulley
Standard Cams
Be interesting to see how the measure up power wise if it is done

Sounds wonderful. I'd like to see some pics of the completed job as I enjoyed your early posts about the work.

Very nice Will,

I read the thread the first time but after reading it all again this morning its very interesting what you had to do to the d/s tank to make it fit. I have one here almost identical in design that needs to find a hole to fit in..

I assume you mean the one that retains the engine it was designed for is the exige.. while the other has taken the first step to becoming a TT? ;)

[quote=evo_ufo]So, its been a while since the last update, but as they say, "All good things..."

Car is back with me and I've been enjoying putting some miles on it this weekend. Its been dry but it certainly requires a healthy doze of respect.

Final figures from the mapping:

329 bhp @ 8470
219 lbft @ 6615

Having retained the 285 cams there is bags of torque thoughout, with it being above 200 lbft all the time it is on second cam.

I'll post up some pictures and more details of the things done when I get some more time.

They are some very nice figures from the yota engine.. Fair play!

The car I am looking to purchase is a rebodyed Elise so not even an Exige to start with.....

It may be a fab track car Ade, but an Exige it is not.

No offense intended to seller or any potential buyer, but I think it's important to distinguish between the real ones and the look-a-likes.

You should keep the S2 mate, especially after all your mods :)
