For the rear spacer for the reroute, did you just use regular gaskets? I have only used gaskets in the pass and had them leak. I now use red rtv along with gaskets to get a good seal.

I've used the gaskets provided in the kit in combination with Loctite silicone sealant (good for up to 250C).

Was the sealant just on the bolts?


But yes doing the reroute with the head on the car is a royal PITA and makes me hate life. It took me something like 6+ months to fix a leak there just because I was so upset with it.

I've put a thin layer of the sealant on both sides of the gaskets. That's how I've always been doing it and so far, that always did the job.

That is exactly how I was going to say to do it. Its the only method that has worked for me.

Hello to all!

Oridori, could you tell me what was the price for this kit?
I'm looking at SPS motorsport website, but there is nothing under shop section and I'm not very good with German, so I can't find info about this kit anywhere.

BTW, you are doing a nice job!

Sorry for the late reply. It'll be easiest to contact SPS Motorsport through their facebook page or give them a call. They'll let you know exactly what you'll get for your specific car and project and you can discuss with them about what parts you need aso. Cheers!

So, this has somehow taken a very different direction. I've installed the kit and chatted quite a few times with Jan from SPS Motorsport whenever I ran into small issues or when I needed parts aso. We talked about different ideas which led to my car now sitting in their workshop and getting a fully built engine and a proper roll cage. Jan has send me a few pictures of the first steps building the cage. I'll get some pics of the engine build today or tomorrow. On Saturday, I'll stop by at the shop to check the final seat position and to get the latest updates.

Update:

Cage is finished, built to FIA / DMSB specs.





Engine is assembled too. K1 Rods, Wiseco 9:1 Pistons, Boundary oilpump, Cometic headgasket, rebuild head, aso... Some more changes have been made after these photos have been taken (COPs, heatshield , aso.). Also, we've switched over to a ME221 ECU, instead of the MS pnp 2. Today it's going on the dyno, fingers crossed!
