Hi Guys,

We have literally just this week re-designed the mounting adapter to give us clearance for Evora fitment. I have a bit more work to do on an evora specific intake but thats the easy bit. One more install here and we will be god to go with the Evora 1900 kit.

Just an FYI, The upgrade from Evora S to 1900 is fairly straight forward but going from NA to either 1320 or 1900 needs a lot more parts, more time for the install and the ECU needs to come to us for the upgrade. There are also other aspects of the install which require the Lotus dignotic tool. Either way to save the barage of questions now, just know that we are on the case and the kit will be up on our site and available through Hofmann's as soon as we are ready with it. This should realistically be about 8 weeks from now.

Stu

Good to meet you today Stu - thanks for your time and I'm looking forward to getting mine done soon :-)

Looking forward to doing manifolds, I think it will make a real difference.  You and Gary might have to arm wrestle for the fist set though!

 

The SSC solution sounds the go to solution for the price vs others on the market.

But why is it that everyone whose got one installed seems to suggest they'll be jumping to installing manifolds soon..?

Is this an eagerness for more power? Or a bottleneck as the OEM manifolds feel restrictive which I can't understand as everyone is suggesting better drivability...

For me changing the manifolds is a very simple choice.

It removes two massively hot cats from the engine bay. This must help keep things cool.

The added benefit of a bit more top end power is bonus, but I am more than happy with the torque and power the car now has using the standard manifolds

Thanks Dave that makes complete sense now

I think its a matter of plucking low hanging fruit.  The airways in and out of the engine will always yield the best £ per bhp ratio.  Once the SC kit and the exhaust are done the only way to go from there is to look at charge cooling and/or internal engine mods, both of which will be much more expensive.

Thank you. Will Hoffmann be publishing pricing for parts and labour of both phase 1 (charger) and phase 2 (manifolds)?

It would be good to get a rough idea for future financial planning ?

The TVS1900 kit is £4130+vat but may be subject to exchange rate variations, I know Hofmanns have held the price for quite some time now

Fitting is £750+vat

Apparently no prices on the exhaust stuff yet as its still in development

What sort of power/torque figures do you end up with (in theory)?

sounds like a great mod for this car Dave. 

(too many projects on to contemplate spending money on the v6) 

 

as an aside...did they fix your rocking drivers seat? and if so how? -  my dealer and factory complaints guy just fob me off with TADTS!

I'm happy to do it myself, if I know what I've got to do.

That's just fine

What if anything can/needs to be done with the ECU maps for the new intake / supercharger? I'm vaguely suspicious when I hear talk of the stock ECU being able to compensate accordingly.

With respect to upgrade of manifolds, would you recommend or support a combination of the 1900 and 2Bular manifolds?
