The top end consists of a mildly hand ported cylinder head, Toda Racing Spec C camshafts and cam gears, Supertech Inconel valves, valve springs and titanium retainers.
When the motor went in, the wiring harness was modified to remove as many unnecessary wiring as possible. Since the goal of this car includes retaining street-legal status, there could have been a bit more wiring removed. Still, you can see by the photos that a lot of weight from the wiring was removed. The good news is, should Irene ever be driven on the street, she still has functioning lights, signals, and even wipers.
With the car now rolling, Irene was sent back to 5Fifteen Autobody to have the custom J’s Racing Type-S front and rear wide-body installed. Then the entire car will be repainted in the iconic Porsche GT3 RS Signal Green that Irene has come to be known by. In the next installment of the Blacktrax Performance S2000 Motorsport Makeover, we’ll cover the bodywork and aero, and the long-awaited dyno tuning and first track test sessions.
