Lotus Supercharger Conversion Kits - Web Exclusive

Aug 6, 2009

Lotus Cars USA has announced the availability of a new factory engineered, warranted and 50-state legal Supercharger Kit for naturally aspirated Elise and Exige models.

These Lotus Supercharger Kits use the same blower and integrated intake manifold as fitted to the production Elise SC, and can be installed on any naturally-aspirated Elise or Exige powered by the Toyota 2ZZ-GE engine. The compact supercharger and integrated intake manifold, working in concert with new high-flow fuel injectors and a re-programmed engine management control unit, increases horsepower from 189hp to approximately 218hp and torque jumps from 133 lb-ft to approximately 155 lb-ft.

Perhaps even more important, the increased maximum torque is available at a lower 5000rpm, instead of the naturally-aspirated 6800rpm, providing the driver with a broader and more flexible power band to work with when carving their favorite twisty roads.

The Lotus Supercharger Kit is available for purchase and installation at all authorized Lotus dealers in the US and Canada. The US MSRP for the Lotus Supercharger Kit is $4950 (but dealers are independent business owners and able to charge above or below that price at their discretion). The kit also includes a new ECU programmed for the supercharged engine, for which there is a $500 charge returned once the original ECU is received by Lotus.
