This is what we refer to as 'The rice burner' this is the ultimate cold air system for your Elise (or MGF) this features a huge Pipercross trumpeted filter enclosed within a cannister. This filter was originally designed and used on the Australian V8 Holden touring cars! So it has enough capacity for your 1.8 K series! The filter is attached to the throttle body with a silicon hose and the flexible cold air pipe and trumpet picks up air from the wing vent. Never mind all the other cold air kits, we've been there and done them all - this filter will produce the same if not more than any other kit on the market

The Hurricane Induction system was originally developed on and for the Lotus Elise.

It combines the advantages of an open air filter (sports filter) and an airbox. Besides, the system is gas flowed from side air vent. All these combined features result in:

- Lower flow resistance by using bigger ducting... - Direct cold air intake.. - Optimised flow, no turbulence.. - Very mature soundtrack

Using the advantage of the sports filter and the cold air intake, power and torque gain is obvious!

During the Hurricane airbox development, all components have been optimised by using high-tech aerodynamics systems. Turbulence has been ruled out, which results in a very steady clean and cool air supply.

How to Clean Your Hurricane

It's recommended that induction kits like the hurricane with a cotton filter should be cleaned every 5-6k or every 6 months (more so if you drive in dusty environments)

1)Remove bent hose that connects it to the throttle body, this gives you room to work, next remove the big jubilee clip and pull out the green filter.

2)Next brush of debris, then soak with cleaner leave it a good 15 mins to work in, then rinse it well from the inside out only in clean warm water. If required apply more cleaner and do it again.

3)Wait for it to dry and then give it a fair but not excessive coat of dust retention spray on oil.


4)Refit reverse of removal.

Note: Cleaner solution and oil can be purchased from http://www.elise-shop.com and http://www.eliseparts.com or from Halfords - Green Cotton Cleaner kit. Remember that if the filter does become very dirty or blocked it will affect the performance of you car.

Suitable for all models of the Mk1 and Mk2 Lotus Elise, this air filter simply fits into the standard air box. Three layers of foam combined with the arresting stickiness of the dust retaining oil gives a high level of filtration to protect the engine from all containments. Long after ordinary filters have blocked up and reduced the engine power Profilter keeps on performing. In normal road use, a Profilter will last at least four times as long as the equivalent standard filter. You will never have to clean a Profilter panel filter – EVER.

The ITG panel filter achives a high level of filteration. This is achived by the three layers of foam combined with the arresting stickiness of the dust retaining oil. In normal road use a Profilter will last at least four times as long as the equivalent standard filter, the performance is unaffected by very large quantities of dirt arrested in the filter. Long after ordinary filters have blocked up and reduced the engine power caused by a loss of air flow into the engine, the Profilter will continue to allow greater air flow through into the engine. This means that the loss of pressure in the Profilter airflow will be exceptionally low. Because of these facts the waste is reduced so Profilter helps the environment as well as the engine.

This filter and baseplate has been specically designed and developed as an aftermarket performance option to further enhance the Exige's already impressive power unit. The filter is made from a 3 layer foam over a stainless steel mesh cage, this is easily inserted into the existing housing. The red baseplate is then mounted to the throttle body and the housing is easily attached with concealed retained nut locators. The filter has undergone several months worth of extensive on car testing. It allows better airflow throughout the lifetime of the filter. This coupled with an improvement in air filtration over the original item ensures that only clean filtered air arrives into the engine, ensuring that the engine breathes at its optimum - ALL THE TIME. Its easily fitted, produces a marked long term improvement and is easy to clean and re-oil - so now you can just keep on driving.

It is finally here: the Racing Cup Air Box for Elise! More performance, more sound and more torque.The MC Racing Cup Air Box stands out because of it’s unique “Twin Air” filter technology. Top quality by using valuable anodized aluminum and a special cotton fabric which is integrated into an extremely elastic plastic tube. Our Air Box is custom made. Our system consists of a computer modulated intake pipe (*the air needed for combustion flows through the intake pipe to the inlet valve) and a special Twin Air Filter and a fittest “70 mm Air Intake tube”.The MC Racing Cup Air Box offers a dynamic performance curve. The Cup Air Box has a exact defined and significantly higher air flow and improved responsiveness, especially in mid range. The torque load increases slightly. Due to a larger volume of cold air, which carries more oxygen, precise combustion is guaranteed. The engine appears more agile. You can count on a 5% increase in power. Installation does not require major technical alterations. Installation takes place onto the original throttle valve openings.The MC Racing Cup Air Box fits into these models:Lotus Elise M111 1.8I K-engine with 88 KW 5500 rev/min., engine 18K4F. Can also be installed into the VVC version.Please note: *some motor sport parts are without certification for road traffic and are without warranty..

TRD (Toyota Racing Development)

Material:
Price: £89.94
Suppliers: Elise Parts

Genuine Lotus TRD Air Box and Filter, originally designed to increase the performance models of the S2 Exige. Uses a substantially larger filtration area along with a 30% increase in the air inlet induction port. Ideal upgrade for any Supercharged Exige but will also fit the S2 Elise and Exige with a non Supercharged Toyota 2ZZ engine. This is a Sports Filter system and as it improves the flow it will also increase induction sound.

A replacement filter element is available from Elise Parts

Toyota Part Number: 17801-03010 (printed on the side of the filter). This filter element is used in Toyota Celica (Years: 94-99 with 5SFE / 7AFE engines), Camry (Years: 92-01 with 5SFE I4 or 3VZFE/1MZFE V6 engines) and Lexus RX (Years: 00-03 with V6 engine) and can be purchased from your average Toyota dealer (historically around £20-22), although your dealer may not carry this filter in stock and might have to order it in for you especially (normally next day).

Fitting is a bit of a fiddle taking a couple of hours. Best done from the top and through the wheelarch as it is necessary to bend the mounting bracket to move the two outer fixing holes closer to the centreline. I also made up an outer 5mm mesh grille to prevent debris getting into the filter. On removing the old, which had been de-snorkeled, there was quite a build up of leaves, etc.

The Bill&Ben Induction system was originally developed on and for the Lotus Elise.

Initially developed by Dave Skeggs for an EliseTrophy car and since resurrected for a LC Speed Series spec car by Jez.

It combines the advantages of an open air filter (sports filter) and an airbox. Besides, the system is gas flowed from side air vent. All these combined features result in: - Not spending much money… - Direct cold air intake.. - its orange.. - Very immature soundtrack

Using the advantage of the sports filter and the cold air intake, power, bank balance and torque gain is obvious!

During the Bill&Ben airbox development, all components have been slapped together with tiger seal by using heath robinson methods. Turbulence may happen, but life's never simple.

How to Make Your Pikey Induction Kit

Buy a flowerpot (£1.26), Bucket (99p), reducer thing (£2.25) and tube of tiger seal or equivalent (£10) - cut a hole in the base of the flower pot (hole saw in a drill does the trick), cut a hole in the bucket then cut the entire base out. glue it all together with your k&n or whatever inside. if you want to get flashy make the bucket base removable from the flower pot to be able to get to the air filter at a later date. if you can't be bothered just make another one after you’ve hacked into the old one :)


1. Buy bits 2. Cut holes 3. Put together 4. Glue
