The Rywire ITR Build (2015 Reboot)…Part 1…

It has been two years since we last saw an update on this build. Many thought it was a lost cause, many thought it was sold, few really knew what was going on with the car, but it’s back….And there is finally light at the end of this 4-year long tunnel. The 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas is the deadline for this car to be completed and it will make it’s glorious debut at the CSF Radiators booth inside the SEMA Show floors. For us, who have been long involved and committed to this project, it almost seems surreal to see the car coming together now. There were so many plans that came and went over time that so much has changed. Technology in the automotive industry has reached levels we’d never thought we’d see and some of the exterior pieces that were intended for the car are now supplanted for different parts to suit the build in 2015. I think you should all see the video that I’ve included here to hear it straight from Ryan as to what has happened and what is going to happen in the near future. He’s incredibly technical but I think watching the video will help you better understand the car now, especially if you’re new to this build. Since the last time we’ve updated, viewership has grown quite a bit so I wouldn’t be surprised if there were a large chunk of you who had never seen or heard of this car before. Even if you would have heard about it in passing somewhere, it almost seems like a hoax or a myth because the entire project just sort of fell on its face a couple years ago. The car disappeared and no one knew what happened to it. People would sometimes ask but I think so much time had elapsed that people just kinda stopped caring…

Below is a video piece where Ryan tells you all about the car. I’ve also attached links to the previous parts to this build so everyone can get caught up. Again, a lot of time has passed so it’s necessary to recount all that has happened with this car since the beginning. After you look through the video and the links provided, scroll further to see brand new stills of the car in its current state. It is changing every day it seems now that the deadline is approaching but here is what we have currently. The next update will contain even more content of the car in a much more completed state. Stay tuned and make sure to stick around to see this car come to fruition…finally… *fingers crossed*

Previous links to every part of this build we have ever covered. Don’t get it twisted, no matter what other sites tell you that you “saw it here first”, everyone KNOWS that The Chronicles has been there from the start….

And the new photos of the car in its current state as of Monday, August 24, 2015…

IMG_1513-Edit

This is how the car looks currently. As stated, gone now is the BackYard Special front bumper and in its place will be a modified OEM front bumper with a paint-matched Spoon Sports front lip…

GOPR2100-Edit

The engine bay mocked-up with the Precision turbocharger and manifold in place. Just need to install the piping for the turbo but that will go on towards the final assembly of the vehicle…

GOPR2106-Edit

Also attached is the Quaife sequential gearbox and the billet bell housing. Above you can get a good look at how the transmission lines have been bulk-headed to the bell housing…

GOPR2108-Edit

The front-mount intercooler with the custom end-tanks have not changed. I think the front bumper now is much better suited to really show off the intercooler but it has not returned yet from the body shop so we couldn’t mock it up for you all to see…

GOPR2148-Edit

A lot of people are thrown off by the valve cover because the “HONDA” is facing the other way. Obviously, this is not a reverse-mounted cylinder head or anything like that. This is actually a HPD Honda Formula Atlantic Racing series valve cover that has been modified slightly and repainted a different color…

IMG_1429-EditIMG_1431-Edit

The Quaife sequential gearbox from under the car…

IMG_1440-Edit

Another angle…

IMG_1443-Edit

HPD oil pan since the car is running a dry-sump set-up and not a conventional oiling system…

IMG_1446-Edit

The Meziere electric water pump mounted to the frame of the Integra. This also still needs to be plumbed…

IMG_1449-Edit

AP Racing big brake kit that’s been retrofitted to the ITR…

IMG_1460-EditIMG_1458-Edit

More of the engine bay as it currently sits…

IMG_1464-EditIMG_1466-Edit

K-Tuned Water Pump Block-Off plate….

IMG_1469-Edit

Shiftec Paddle Shift solenoid that will be hooked up to C02 cartridges that allow the car to shift seamlessly…

IMG_1477-Edit

Pressure transducers that will monitor brake pressure, clutch pressure, manifold pressure, fuel, oil, etc….

GOPR2119-Edit

A look at the interior as it currently rests. You’ll notice some of the photos look very different than the others. That’s because I was shooting photos with both my dSLR as well as my GoPro…

IMG_1492-Edit

MoTec PDM controls which will assist in operating many of the vehicles electronic features….

IMG_1497-Edit

The MoTec PDM16 Control Unit which is mounted to the passenger-side floor…

IMG_1499-Edit

Motec digital instrument display which is the largest display to-date. The custom dash had to be cut and modified just to house this unit…

IMG_1502-Edit

OMP steering wheel attached to the custom steering column….

IMG_1487-EditIMG_1511-Edit

The interior looks much different than it did awhile back since the custom metal panels have all been coated in a textured black finish…

IMG_1455-Edit IMG_1457-Edit

Eibach Multi-Pro R2 suspension and ASC Speed Metal custom lower control arms. In the bottom photo you can also see the custom bracket that was created to mount the AP Racing brakes…

IMG_1452-Edit

A look at the fuel set-up from beneath the car. You can see here where the hole has been cut-out so that Ryan can bulkhead the fuel fittings through the chassis of the ITR…

IMG_1480-Edit
IMG_1485-Edit

The matching rear panels that will hold all the Nuke Performance fuel components and the dual Bosch 044 pumps. You can also see the battery tray and fuel pump cover that has also been coated…

IMG_1505-Edit

A mock-up of the fuel system prior to the lines being plumbed…

IMG_1519-Edit

We are all pretty excited to see how it’ll all come together once the rest of the parts come in. Then Ryan can concentrate on getting the car running and operational…

GOPR2137-EditGOPR2153-Edit

That’s all for now folks. Thanks for catching-up and looking through all of it. I know it is a lot to take in but bear with us while we continue construction on the Rywire Integra Type R build!!…
