Hey,  they didn't laugh at my Spider (not out loud anyway),  so I doubt they'll
laugh at a Lotus.  Worst case you'll have to put up with some good natured 'Brit'
comments.  At least you don't have to listen to the "Fix It Again Tony" cracks :-)

If it's a Ford 2L block you should be able to find all the parts you need without
much searching.  I think I might start by scrounging an intake from a 2L Mustang,
or maybe just buying an intake gasket,  to see how things line up.
