Track Bred EG6 Build… Part 28

DSC_0550

Every time I have to collect coverage on this build, I never know what to expect and each time I’m equally surprised. In a previous post I mentioned  that Jerry had an idea he was playing with in the last large scale rebuild of this series; that would allow him to add additional rigidity to the chassis while shedding some weight all within the same modification. Today I have some more photos of the progress he has made since the last post. In addition to this, while in the process of practically rebuilding the entire car Jerry took things a step further and switched out one of the most important pieces of the puzzle.

 

For those who would like a full recap of this build, I’ve provided the link below…

Jerry went ahead and bought a Haltech Platinum Series PRO EMS….

With the rebuild underway and with the increase in power to come from the K24 motor, Jerry thought that he should also address the brain behind it. And after doing an assessment of the advantages and disadvantages between the Hondata K-Pro and the Haltech Platinum Series PRO, the latter won. Not because of the “something new” syndrome some people think Jerry has; but because of the additional tuning capabilities and the precision that comes with it.

On speaking about the tuning parameters and precision tuning over the Hondata K-Pro, here are the open tip thermocouples which will be placed in each of the runners in the exhaust manifold. These will send a more accurate reading of the exhaust temperatures to the ECU and will aid the tuner in getting the most out of the motor.

A scrap pile of metal that was cut from various places about the chassis that will now be replaced with a stronger, lighter material.

Here are the two wheel arches, more so where the previous ones existed, which in themselves had been modified at an earlier time in this build.

Moving to the other end of the car, Jerry has plans of completely changing the fuel setup. In addition he will no longer have to manually open to fuel cell lid to refuel. To accommodate this upgrade the fuel cell will need to be modified and a filler neck fitted.
