Default Elise turbo build and dyno.




I want an Elise so god damn bad. I'd sell everything, if what I had was worth 20k for one.

I'd take one for free, but a 300whp sub-2,000lb Miata is basically the same thing or better.

Good luck getting a Miata under 2000 lbs while still being comfortable enough to daily drive.

Well, let's face it... The Elise wouldn't really make a great DD.

The middle aged man I see everyday on the highway doesn't seem to mind. He cruises along with his a/c going down the highway no problem.

not really. There is a bone stock elise that autocrosses up here and he beats out all the turbo miata's. The elise is one of the best handling cars in the world. IN a straight line it's not the fasest.

In Soviet Russa, turbo Elise dyno's you.

I'd "chucky Z" your family for a stock, BRG Exige with bronze 6ULs. I'd then go to Austin and brag to everyone about my lap record for Tuesdays with 65-72% humidity (non-leap year).

I'd have one if they were as cheap here as they are in the US. Those are so sweet.
