Has anyone though of swappin the engite to a GM Ecotec 2.0 liter turbo GDI engine


Asked by Robbie Dec 23, 2009 at 01:33 PM about the Lotus Elise

Question type: Car Customization

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?
