Daryl’s Rally K-EG Build… Part 8

Back again with another update on Daryl’s rally K-EG build, in the previous update he was finalizing the fitment of the new gearbox and axles. Today we’ll be taking a look of the process leading up to the beginning of the season, with the engine finally back from 4 Piston Racing and some other changes that the car will be seeing.

For those who are viewing this post for the first time, I’ve provided links to the entire build below.

Some modifications have been made to the hood to allow some fresh air to be funneled through the Kinsler ITBs…

As you can see the car is now back at home, still engine-less with the front end pretty much disassembled…

A few shots of the Sedev chilling in the bay patiently waiting…

 

Meanwhile at 4 Piston Racing…

The motor is finally complete and ready to ship…

Fast forward a few weeks, it finally arrives and Daryl wastes no time…

One of the upgrades that have been made, is the use of an external oil pump. This will improve oil pressure and would also aid with ground clearance.

Motor finally rested in its new home, mated to the Sadev box…

A closer look at the external oil pump setup. Unfortunately there was some clearance issues with the pump and the chassis of the car, and Daryl had to have a bracket fabricated to suit.

The necessary modifications being made to the sump to accommodate  for use of the external oil pump…

Out with the old…

In with the new… ASP custom built header that will be a vast improvement over the previous header…

Russell putting in some work on the shifter rod, making sure he gets the bends as precise as possible.

Test fitting… Looks about right…

And it works too…

Shifter completed and powdercoated…

Due to the upgrade to the Sadev gearbox, the axles needed to be changed…

Another look at the completed shifter rod connected to the gearbox…

With the issues finally resolved with the pump, here is how it looks installed…

Front end back together and looking damn good…

A first look at the hood scoop…

Test fitted and looking pretty good, just need to be painted to complete the exterior…
