there are some european shops who do a similar conversion.
sorry jp, I misred "the honda equipped cars" to mean those which had a Honda engine, not those where an owner had pushed a Honda engine into it as clearly any conversion like that is "engineX equipped" and by now I think every type of engine has been tried to be shoe-horned into a Lotus and they ahve nothing to do with the 240R.

Making them "better" by doing it is up for debate with a 5% change in weight bias to the rear
