I just got around to reading the article i found this interesting...

In addition to forcing more output from the 1.8-liter four, the blower allowed Lotus to remap the engine to include, for the first time, variable-rpm cam switching. Whereas the unblown Exige engine was compromised by a dramatic dip in torque around 5,200 rpm...
no dip in torque...interesting.
