‘Pop­u­lar mods are ECU and ex­haust swaps’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Living With Classics - ALAN MOR­GAN CHAIR­MAN, CLUB LO­TUS

‘Although mod­i­fi­ca­tions are pop­u­lar, most M100s have been kept stan­dard. When cars are up­graded it’s either to boost per­for­mance or to iron out weak­nesses, such as the brakes. In many cases the Elan is up­graded be­cause the orig­i­nal parts are un­avail­able or too costly. The most pop­u­lar mods are ECU and ex­haust swaps. The big­gest ben­e­fit of chip­ping the Elan is not for ul­ti­mate power but to even out the torque curve. An ex­haust change is a no-brainer too.’ clublo­tus.co.uk
