Where To Source A Vvc Replacement Engine & Any Advice
Posted 13 September 2012 - 04:07 PM
After years of dreaming i have now got my S2 Elise 111s (04). I bought it with blown engine so i have a bit of a project on. I want to replace like for like and welcome any advice on where to get and what to look out for. I am aware of the overheating and was told i needed a 'coil pack' engine. I thought that basically all K's were the same but now not sure. Any advice or tips welcome.

These sell for around 350 on the second hand market.
Shame really as I just sold my 111s engine to a man in Holland

You do want an EU3 and best to go for one out of a TF. This engine will bolt straight in. When you say your engine is blown, can you see damage to the block?
i wouldnt buy the one above as It sounds like it has a top end problem that could be expensive to sort.

Thanks for the good advice. Eventually decided to go with Dazzx10r recommendation, not that exact engine but that company, as said by Jimbo I wanted to see it run if private but CWV offer money back within 7 days or replacement within 30 days. They were a decent couple of lads located in Doncaster, threw in a couple of extra brkts (free) that i asked for too. So I got an 04 TF engine with a quoted 55K £400, will be installing over weekend. Answer to you question Jimbo big hole in No2 cyl.
