I have a motorsport-bodied Elise with 118hp K and HGF. The head won’t come off for another week, so I don’t know if the engine is salvageable.
If it isn’t, do I drop in another K to Sport 160 spec, a VHPD or a DVA-type tune? Or do I drop in a Honda? The Honda is most appealing but I don’t have the necessary ï¿½10k (my anecedotal understanding of price) for a dealer install. Thus if I were to buy an engine like the one recently for sale by EVOSAL, does anyone other than Prototype Racing offer the necessary parts in kit form? Or would I have to fabricate everything? I have access to full workshop facilities including machining and access to an auto-electrician. I’m not concerned by rumours that some DIY efforts are potential fireballs.
Look forward to your comments.
