Race Car Project Elise #001

During a busy 2011 we built our first race car from the ground upwards, putting into play all our experience and knowledge from suspension to braking, engine performance to driver exeperience and more. The production class nature of our ‘first born’ means that we have not yet applied our usual 300bhp+ setup to it’s Toyota 2ZZ engine, instead we have developed this car for out-and-out ride and handling.  After a successful first race at Spa, we are sure that next years activities will be worth reading about!


Turbo Technics Supercharger Refurbishment Ceases

Turbo Technics are no longer able to refurbish existing TT superchargers as provided with their TT190, TT215 and TT230 kits for the Rover K-Series engine.

After purchasing the remaining stock of peripheral components for the TT kits from Turbo Technics, we have made some significant modifications to the kit and in the next few months we will be launching our new Rotrex-Based Supercharger kit for the K-Series Elise, Exige and 340R.

Our upcoming SC kit has been delayed due to a design change to allow the our supercharger to be integrated with existing Turbo Technics K-Series installations in the event that the TT chargers should fail.

More news on our supercharger kit development very soon!

Emerald K6 for Elise 111R & Exige

During the course of 2010, we worked with engine management guru Dave Walker and Emerald to develop several plug-and-play solutions for Lotus-specific applications.  We are now pleased to announce the first of several very significant developments for Toyota engined Elise 111R, Exige S2 and Supercharged Cup 240 – all featuring the cable throttle assembly.

Dave’s words on this first development on the 2ZZ engine….

“This is an engine that we have been meaning to get around to for some time, but only with the new Emerald K6 ECU has a conversion really been practical.  By teaming up with Hangar 111 we have had the benefit of their experiences in converted supercharged engines, albeit running a re-mapped stock ECU.

After running up their supercharged demo car on our rolling road we installed a new K6 with an adapter harness and set about re-mapping. We spent some time on the cam switching and cam timing maps to see if the stock ECU settings could be improved upon.

Our experiences with the Rover VVC engine led us to believe that the standard Lotus settings would not be improved upon. Without giving too much away at this stage we did find some fairly spectacular gains over the re-mapped stock ECU on this supercharged engine: 30 bhp at one point in the rev range!

Hangar 111 will be offering conversions for cable throttle cars using the triple map K6 ECU fitted via an adapter harness that also contains some hardware to keep the AC unit fully functioning and a CAN bus link in the K6 will power the standard dash.”

The Emerald K6 represents excellent value-for-money with easy -to-use software and a wealth of knowledge to support the product.  The fact that in this guise it is fully compatible with the original dash and simply plugs in via an adapter means instant cost-savings for the tuner.
