Elise 2ZR Level 1 Power Upgrade

AUD$ 1,995.00 tax excl.


AUD$ 2,194.50

A straightforward power upgrade for your supercharged Lotus Elise by improving engine breathing.


  • A quick and cost-effective way of getting close to Cup 250 performance.
  • A superb foundation for future performance upgrades, such as the Level 2 Power Pack.
  • Well within the capabilities of most home mechanics.
  • A bit more supercharger whine from the intake, which adds to the sense of occasion.


  • Slight increase in fuel consumption (more power needs more air and fuel).
  • If you ultimately want the Level 2 Power Pack, its more cost effective to go straight there.
  • Slightly louder throughout the rev range, particularly at large throttle openings… although perhaps that’s a Pro?!

Shipping weight:

  • Elise S3 1.8 Toyota 2ZR [12-Now]

More details:

Unlike modern turbo engines, supercharged engines such as the 2ZR found in the Lotus Elise, still respond well to what we would call “classic” exhaust manifold tuning, such as optimised runner design and nicely detailed collectors, to give their best.  Unfortunately, most OEM designs fall short of the ideal because of the constraints placed upon their engineers, most noticeably production cost.
Our exhaust manifold design has been designed specifically to address any performance-related issues and in combination with our cold air induction kit it provides a noticeable improvement in engine breathing.  To take advantage of that, our engineers also reflash the ECU with a custom tune to ensure that optimal driveability, performance and reliability are delivered.
Key features of the Level 1 kit include:
•    Exhaust manifold designed with optimal runner lengths and diameters to maximise the inherent potential of the 2ZR engine.
•    Refined collector design for improved exhaust gas flow, which mates to standard downpipe and catalyst.
•    Exhaust manifold manufactured from T409 stainless steel, with CNC mandrel bends and robotic welds for consistent high quality and perfect fit every time.
•    Ceramic coating of exhaust manifold to reduce engine bay temperature and improve looks.
•    Cold air induction kit featuring CNC machined and welded MAF sensor mount, the necessary silicone joining pieces and clamps, a lightweight aluminium pipe and HKS, high-performance filter.
•    Induction kit promotes laminar flow upstream of the supercharger, improving MAF sensor accuracy and reducing airflow restriction.
•    Slight reduction in weight over standard parts that are replaced.
•    Power and torque improved throughout the rev range with a peak of 245.5bhp (vs. 220 as standard).

SSC's Opinion

This is the most common and straightforward power upgrade we provide.  It delivers a meaningful performance improvement, with almost no down side for an Elise with a 2ZR engine.
