- Phoenix Yellow EK9 - 1996 DC2 Type R - EG6 SiR2
The EK9 shell has sold.
I'm hoping to buy a complete example next year all being well, I just cant commit the time and expense that the Yellow shell needed.
I have now ordered the following for the EG6s built B18C which means its edging ever closer to completion:
- Brian Crower BC0013 Stage 3 N/A spec camshafts
- Brian Crower BC0010s valve springs and steel retainers.
I opted for steel retainers for longevity between inspections. It's been noted by a few that titanium retainers should be subject to inspection and/or replacement every so often. Deemed a consumable in a race engine apparently and my wallet doesnt like the sound of that!
Supertech flatface valves, ACL conrod/main/thrust bearings and ferrea valve guides to sort next and thats just about everything needed to start initial assembly to check P2V and V2V clearances before final assembly and cam timing/degree.
