Also curious to know this, as I would like to do it as well some time.

From what I can tell, there would be some plumbing work to do, electrical due to engine management system, fuel system (swirl or capacity tank I think?), and mostly likely engine mounts.

But lets see what the experienced people have to say. Hopefully its not too major.
1) Birkin, Kent powered - complete rebuild underway

Hi

I was also having a look at doing this once upon a time... Sorry to direct traffic away from this forum but when I was doing my research I found this topic on The Lotus Register Forum:

Hope this helps a bit, and as the reply to the post states: Don't trust the rand value! 2003 was a long time ago! :)

Cheers
Bryce
