Has anyone though of swappin the engite to a GM Ecotec 2.0 liter turbo GDI engine
Look up the specs. It’s designated the “LNF”, and is found on the 08/09 Saturn Sky Redline, Pontiac Solstice GXP, Cobalt SS/TC. With a factory upgrade, the engines put out 290 hp and 340 ft-lbs of torque. The amazing part about it is the torque curve is perfectly flat throughout the RPM range. I think this would be well suited to the Elise, just wondering is anyone has done it before?
