K-Swapped EG4 Build… Part 1

It has been a rough couple of weeks, unfortunately Verdon wasn’t able to get the car up and running in time for the Drag Warz event. Even though it was a rush to have everything completed, things were still looking quite hopeful a few days before the deadline, but with serious delays in shipping, the hopes of racing were crushed. In today’s update we’ll take a look at the progress made just before the drags, with the motor and gearbox lifted into the bay.

For those of you who missed the first part of this build, I’ve provided the link below…

K-Swapped EG4 Build… Introduction

Jumping right back into it, when we left off the D-Series motor had just been dropped…

Sitting peacefully awaiting the next phase…

As I mentioned before, Verdon plans on keeping the car as street as possible, so it will retain the AC and PS. When doing a K swap the radiator needs to be relocated to the other side of the engine bay. In this case, both radiator and AC tabs were removed to be relocated at a later date.

The DC5 K20A engine and gearbox looking a lot less bulky with the intake and exhaust manifolds removed, along with other misc stuff stripped off…

Ready to be lifted in its new home…

 A few shots of the Hybrid Racing engine mounts and finally what you’ve been waiting to see…

The motor fitted in the bay, as if it belonged there….

 

With the motor in place, it was time for a good cleaning….

 

A significant amount of degreaser was required…

Meanwhile…

Shot of the Hondata K-Pro engine management…

Adjustable fuel pressure regulator along with the fittings…

Random shot of part of the Hybrid Racing header next to one of the axles…

And within  a couple of minutes…

As you can see for yourself, the degreaser made a huge difference…

And on that note, I’m going to close out today with one more bay shot…

Stay tuned for another update on the progress of this build coming soon…
