Thought this is the best way to show the updates on what appears to be a car with good bones.

All the lights etc will be modernised with LED and maybe Halo on the driving lamps

The car currently has an injected 4AGE with a few modifications.

At the moment just piecing together the replacement engine and a few composite parts. My engine is designing a cradle to sit the engine into

The engine thats going in

Just about to start building up the engine. This engine has lower compression pistons than my race engine as this will spend most of its time on 98 octane, while the race car is on e85

Image

Carrillo rods all sized and inspected.

Image

Pistons have arrived. Will be setting the rings over the weekend

Image

Gauges are modified and the new lamada, oil pressure, oil temp gauges that will be installed into the carbon dash

Image

I have also flashed the hayabusa ecu so that it can control the turbo fueling, removed the bike sensors and also remove all the limiters

Head just came back from having porting work, after market spring and kibblewhite stainless valves

Also just serviced the shocks.

These are called dynamic dssv and are very adjustable. These shocks are used by red bull f1, and a number of lmp1 cars.

I was lucky enough to get these from the winding down of the gt3 panoz program.

Taken me a little while but finally had my mate in the USA track me down another one of these beautys

Turbo comes from the current spec indycar. These are light, weighing in just over 5kg as pictured. I use this same turbo on my race car (same engine to) and we are seeing 350hp at the wheels at 11psi. Full boost is at 4.5k rpm, they are light and efficent.

Cant wait to see how this looks on the side of the 7

Feeling very lucky.

Last night was online about to order the output drive, a electric reverse kit and pricing up paddles all from the UK when I thought hang on lets check what a car starter motor is going to add to the bill. What I found at that time was this little beauty online so snapped it up. This should make things alot simpler
