wuts the safest and most reliable way to add power

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a new Lotus owner and I just got a 2000 Esprit V8. I live in america so its US spec ecu. I was thinking of doing a european spec ecu upgrade, I assume since it comes that way from the factory out here its pretty safe and reliable for my car? Now, I would be real happy if I can get 400 crank hp(not whp) out of my esprit, how can I accomplish this safely, smart and as reliable as possible?

Hello Tony,

I suggest that you read through some of the power related threads already discussed in this part of the forum. There are plenty of owners who have been increasing the power output of their cars and discussing the reliability issues surrounding these mods.

If you are looking for ~ 400 crank hp, a Red ECU and straight pipes will get you there.


'03.5 Final Edition Esprit ~ 5.7lbs/hp

mildly modded - 430rwhp, 353rwtq
