anyone need a dose of overkill?

i've seen some ridiculous engine swaps before, but this takes the cake!

i can understand making an LS1 240sx


an LS2 350z


or even an LS6 RX7







but when you feel the need to shoehorn an LS9 into a modified Lotus Exige, you're straight crazy!!!


647hp in a car weighing around 2200lbs is pure that's enough to make a grown man pee his britches!

It needs a scoop for a supercharger. Then it would be perfectly insane.

I'd like to see a picture of the engine bay. I'm wondering how they say they fit the LS9 in there. Moreover, I'm wondering where the transmission would've gone as well. I'm no engine swap expert, and I hope I'm wrong here, I really do, but something just doesn't seem right to me.

i looked for an hour & couldn't find any engine pics, but i'd say it's possible. the car is based on th exige, but it's been lengthened and widened. the ls9 is the same external dimensions as any other GenIV small block (just with a little more overhead clearance needed for the blower/intercooler). they also offer a huge range of engines from HO 4 bangers to the LS9

mid engine, they stretched the length of the car a little bit to get the extra space they needed.


and I want a torque gauge like that....

LSx engines are probably the most popular for swaps. They make good power, get good gas mileage, they're light, easy to work on, small and not too expensive. What's not to love?
