Another Secant Type I Conversion

We completed another Ecotec conversion on a Lotus Elise last month. Secant Vehicles Type I powertrain package delivers 280hp and an unbelievable 241 ft-lbs of torque. The car is superbly fast and absolutely docile to drive around town. The complete character of the power delivery is changed as the torque band is so smooth and flat. The car features a supercharged 2.0 Ecotec, professionally built for us by GM Racing.

Fred, the owner of this Lotus California edition, is extremely happy with the conversion. He, along with us, love the discrete, OE-like look of the swap. The engine bay is somewhat boring as it is too OE!!! Very neat and clean. There is nothing Fast & Furious about how this engine bay looks - but the car does do 0-60mph in under 4secs.

For those of you who are looking for a nicely engineered power package for your Lotus - this is one to consider. The dash works correctly even though the powertrain is managed by an OE Delphi controller. The car runs like an factory calibrated car.

Thanks to the engineers at Secant for another excellent conversion! Give us a call if you are interested in a conversion that delivers Viper-like acceleration!
