Street Kingz: DC2-K Build… Part 1

DSC_0318

In the automotive world a reputation is one of the things we tend to lean on when names known to us are brought up. Depending on the name mentioned you know what caliber of project to expect. When word got out that Meagus was ready to start working on his DC2, many knew it would not only be a top quality build but one with performance at the core. Meagus didn’t have an absolute date in mind for completion, however no time was wasted in executing the plan formed. Some orders were placed with some prominent swap companies and in a short while the necessary parts started to arrive. By this time Meagus knew a K24 would be his motor of choice based on the power goal in mind. Today we’ll be taking an in-depth look at the motor along with the parts to complete the swap.

 

For those who may want to view this build from the start I’ve provided the link below:
