If its a rare car it would seem a shame to change the engine.  If its already hacked about fair enough but if its all there why not rebuild it properly.  As far as the engine goes Lotus bits list it at £1600 running or £1000 condition unknown or there was a rebuilt  (but some time ago so might need new seals) on ebay from SW Lotus for £2350.
