Yeah I know, it's looking very good with the wireless engine bay now, he's putting a lot of time and effort into it and it's looking very good. Going to be good seeing who's wins out of me, Seans and Daz up quarter mile. I think Daz going to have problems getting the power down and i've got a diff & emerald so little advantage over Sean but we'll see aye

Sean will win, he always does

The R65U box just shifts so quickly, you cant get a pg1 to do the same

Ok some of you may have seen that all my k series stuff has been up for sale
Basically i tried as best as i could to get the k to over 350bhp, but everyone that has gone to this level other than the 1.4 boys have had issues so i just couldnt take the chance. Thats not to say its not possible but i dont have the time and money when i had the metro to buy, try and fix.
So i sold everything in a bid to raise some cash for a new engine.
This has been done to an elise before but only as std spec and they are quick then, but i have bought a forged T series, well pistons and rods, and in this spec with the right turbo they are good for 500bhp+ This one has a GT3076R turbo and custom manifold but neither will fit the elise and i dont want nothing / everything so changing a few things. ECU is an E48 DTA but will be going S80 so i can have traction control (elises swap ends easily and i havent had a RWD car since i was 17, and i crashed that...twice)



Power Curve with the current setup

Bought some bits from Grant at www.gb-ent.com
GTX2867R 0.64a/r turbine housing should be a nice and quick spool actuator 12psi
Gizzmo MS-IBC to control Boost
MTX Wide band controller
Water pump flange, goes onto block for electric water pump
Davis Craig EWP 80lpm with controller
T Series exhaust flange, to add to K series manifold
Collected engine today from Chelmsford after work so tomorrow evening i have a go at squeezing it in, mainly as i have no room at the moment

Engine is out of the Alfa, which needs a clean, and its now at the lock up with the lotus.
Removed the manifold that was on there today as it just wont fit in the Lotus, the turbo a small GT3076R was also removed

Here is the difference, the old 160VVC engine next to the T series....


Cheeky Scott, Bournemouths finest panel beater holding up the turbo and manifold which i have sold with the loom and E48 ECU already to cover the cost of the GTX

Then when i was home i got the k series manifold out and checked it against the T series one from www.gb-ent.com should fit.

Ordered bits yesterday and they arrived today, nothing like good service from Grant. Turbo should be with me Thursday so i can look at getting a trial fit against the bulk head

Well the engine is in the car, gearbox mount is on but the cam cover side of things is a little bit of a bugger
The aluminium mount is touching the plastic cam cover

But as said the engine is in and not too bad a fit



There is a little bit of room for the manifold and turbo to be fitted

When i got home today also had a couple of goodies waiting for me, the ECU DTA S80Pro and the GTX2867 turbo oh and a reminder i only have 8 weeks to finish the car off




This is the compressor curve for the GTX it is supposed to spool a little quicker than a disco potato and flow as well as the GT2871 and stay efficient above 2 bar boost !

Loving it if I had the time, money and knowledge I'd love a similar project the Express and the VW T4 taking all that up though.
Can't wait to see what 500bhp is like in an Elise

Engine mount was made today, used the existing 620 turbo mount and modded to suit the std elise one
Will see how this gets on as the std mount is not known for its torque holding capability but the vibratechnics ones are
Thanks for comments so far
