Lotus Honda Engine Conversions

The Maidstone Sports Cars Lotus Honda Conversion is not only the best quality installation, but the most popular, and being a Lotus specialist means that your car is in safe hands, which is proven by having completed over two hundred Honda Elise kits throughout the Lotus range. At MSC, our honda conversion can now be fitted not only to the Rover engine variants of the Elise/Exige but also the Toyota powered cars including the S2 Exige/111R and the 211. The MSC conversion can now also be fitted into the MGF and TF!!!(See projects)

Our first conversion, aptly nicknamed the Honda Elise, was a 1998 Lotus Elise S1. We replaced the Lotus Elise engine, the Rover 'K' series, with a Normally Aspirated Honda K20A2 engine more commonly found in the Honda Civic Type R. The transformation was a success and was made our demonstrator model. This car took part in many track days in the hands of former international racing driver Andy Walsh, to show how exciting and reliable the install is, which created much interest for the Lotus Elise Honda conversion. Having covered more than forty thousand road and track miles, the car was given a new challenge.

It ran in the inaugural year of the Lotus on Track Elise Trophy as a class C car for the season. For this we upgraded the car to full supercharger specification, along with many Lotus Elise performance upgrades, such as brakes, uprated suspension etc. and it raced faultlessly throughout the season. After a change in the race regulations the car under new ownership of Fox Motorsport was given a new lease of life and we duly converted the car back to a normal aspirated spec and the MSC team enjoyed great success in the hands of up and coming race driver Jamie Stanley, who drove the car in 2009 and achieved 10 outright wins from 12 starts.

This car was one of many Elise's that Maidstone Sports Cars converted to full Honda power for the Elise Trophy.

Normally aspirated, we have developed an engine that will rev to 8600rpm and produce just under 225bhp in standard form. This conversion has been tried and tested in both road, track and race cars worldwide.

If you need more power, there are lots of options to choose from, including using our own steel billet camshafts or uprated inlet manifolds, both giving great results for boosting power and torque on dyno readings. Please see Lotus Honda Engine Conversion Extras for more information.
