MWR Complete E153 Transmission Conversion – Lotus Evora 09+


SKU: MWR-410121 Category: Brand:


2009+ Lotus Evora all (manual transmission models)

The Evora 6-speed has quickly earned a reputation for being fragile and problematic. With no gear upgrades and only limited LSD options out there, it can be a real problem for racers or those with significantly higher than stock power levels.

MWR’s E153 swap kit allows you to install the bulletproof 93-95 Toyota MR2 Turbo transmission in your Evora. This transmission has been known to handle the power and abuse of 700-800hp drag cars weighing nearly 3000 lbs over the years without a problem. The gears are simply monstrous. The transmission also has an integral oil cooler (self contained) which keeps temperatures under control even in severe high power road racing conditions.

This transmission even includes a factory limited slip differential (LSD) which makes it a great value. This is a viscous style LSD which works great on the street with no noise or unwanted lock-up during parking maneuvers. For those of you who are a little more hardcore we do stock the Kaaz clutch-type LSD and the Quaife torsen style LSD for this transmission, both of which swap in easily.

For road racers we also stock the Kaaz close ratio road race gear set for the E153 transmission.
