2GR-FE probably replaced by 2GR-FKS. Output is not that different. I am pretty sure with the supercharger it gets a 430-500bhp range so it is all down to gearbox. I am not sure what aisin gearbox works for that.

That would be the AWF8G45 which is good for 480nm out of the box... But since Cyan racing and Lynk and Co have been working on a ridiculous 03 Cyan tuned road car with that gearbox, I'm pretty sure there is a version of that thing that has been vetted for 500nm. However it was matched to a 4cyl not a V6, however since Lotus join Geely  it is now part of a group that can ask Aisin to create a bespoke version of a gearbox...  Time will tell I guess

From my chat yesterday with Lotus they are not happy with the current torque figures. Not sure if it was the 4 or 6 cyl they were referring to.

I assume the engine deal is done and dusted by now and there is no time for a U-Turn but at least we know they are trying to optimise the engines for 'fun' and usability.

If it has an engine, I am there to thrash it.
