Benr, yozza , is this not a bit of a steal?



  BMW 330d :)
Im just wondering whether its been damaged in a crash but it doesnt look like it... £620 for a type r engine? I want!
 
it'll be a good fun car!

You can net 240bhp with very little work and there are installation kits for the elise's.

cant help but notice there is still 5 days to go on it, so will probably end up around the 2k mark!

i like the sellers use of the words 'massive torque', cant say that vtec engines are known for thier massive amounts of torque!!
 
Well, because they are square motors with a generous R/S ratio you wont get the peak torque figures you will off more agricultural engines, but they sure as hell will hold a flat torque curve for ages.

Well the seller doesnt know anything about the engine - "The V-Tech point comes in at 6,500rpm" - More like 5800 rpm!!!

Best thing to do is speak to Maidstone Sportscars - they specialise in the K20/a transplants for the Elise and can tell you exactly what you need. If you go to their website I think they list everything needed.

That engine is just a std UK K20 - the engine of choice is the K20a [JDM] and offers a LSD plus more power as std [20bhp].

But.... please factor into the cost a custom 4-2-1 mani and exhaust system, and many hours of map work needed after.

Personally I would spend £7-£10k and get Horizon motorsport/Blink/Maidstones to source the parts and do all the work.... Its a big hassle to do yourself and can cost as much as paying someone else to do it. Plus you get a full warranty.

For further info also visit SELOC.

Cheers m8 i'll have a look. What do you estimate the 0-60 , 0-100, top speed with a 240bhp type r engine in an elise?

0-60 in about 4 secs, 0-100 under 9 secs.

Go to Blink motorsport - they have vids and stats etc :D

The vids are great!

Ali - dont Integra DC5's come with around that figure? as JDM Civic's come with around 220 bhp.


on another note, a friend of a friend has the type R conversion in his Elise, apperently its 'rapid'!

also SWAT speed have just done a conversion kit for the Citroen Saxo, which involves a space frame design, which mounts a Honda unit in the BACK of the car. Looks good!

DC5 engine is the same as that of the EP3 JDM civic. So 218Bhp std. My mates dc5 is now running 242.7bhp and over 170ft/lb.

is that not the same engine as above, on ebay? just the JDM version, ie different management?

or do they use different cams etc etc?

usually hate jap cars, but wouldnt say no to a DC5!!

being easy and cheap are 2 different things.

All that bolt on crap 'the boys' play with are expensive because your paying stupid prices for stupid names.
