BUILD UPDATE - GEORGE'S RX3 SEDAN 'TO90OD'

Following on from our first build update, with the year's end bringing with it a rush of customer jobs our own projects have had to take a back seat for a while, however George and the boys did manage to sneak in a bit of work after hours on 'TO90OD' with the driveline pretty much completed. We even fired her up for the very first time.

The dummy block has now been removed and the smoothed-out engine bay is now home to a brand new 13BBP, utilising a Series 6 RX7 block. Fed by a custom Garrettt ball-bearing turbo and sipping on E85 the combo is expected to propel the car to mid to low 9-second performances on the strip whilst retaining awesome response and drivability on the street.

Everything in this engine bay is new and upgraded, from the brake system components including all hard lines, to the cars cooling and fuel system. Even the washer bottle and brake reservoirs have been replaced with brand new items.



The majority of the engine components, like the suspension and driveline has been powder coated in-house, in satin black giving the package a kind of factory look as well as being  pleasing to the eye. We think the subtle colours of the body work and engine components go well together.



Our good friend Emmanuel from Gadget Auto Electrical worked his magic on the cars wiring, re-routing and hiding all of the engine bay side for a super-clean look.



MSD high output coils have been fitted to ensure the strongest spark possible to fire up the E85 mix, equipped with a set of custom leads made to suit in-house.



All new headlights, backing plates and the massive 100mm thick Pac Performance intercooler were also fitted, soon to be hidden behind the 12A Savanna nose cone and front lip



A set of sexy Savanna tail lights have been fitted to the rear, complimented by Savanna rear quarter badges, replacing the side reflector usually seen in that position along with the factory Savanna RX3 badging. Fully refurbished and re-chromed bumpers have also been added finishing off the rear end nicely.



Distracted by all the new fancy gear and the cars new exterior the smaller details are often missed and those are often the things that show the overall quality of a build. A perfect example is the finish quality of the rarely seen and even un-seen areas of the car like the boot and inner door frames as seen here. There have been no short cuts on the build of this car.



On our last day of trade for the year the crew wanted to end it on a high so the fuel system was installed and the car was rigged up to fire. And that she did, first crank. You can listen to the car on her first start up on our Facebook page via this link - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10201912020476405&set=vb.130214100369368&type=2&theater

With things now full steam ahead in the new year it won't be long now 'till this beast if ready to hit the streets. Once the final exterior bits have been completed the focus will be moving to the cars interior which like the rest of the car will impress!
