Another Kels Update | OnPoint Dyno

We had the pleasure of putting in over a week’s worth of work in just 1 day yesterday at Centerline. Rene and Gitano, the owners of Centerline Motorsports, helped myself, Liam and Fizzer get literally over a week’s worth of work done in one day. We arrived early, unloaded the car, and with a little “pre-planning” (that I was made fun of for), we got the following work done:

– JenveyVQ35DE ITBs modified to work with HR. We actually did this twice as we did a mock up set and then the actual set.
– Exhaust modifications for more ground clearance and to make sure fitment with the HR was correct.
– Relocate dry-break fuel fill on the exterior of the trunk lid – as now the wing bolts through the trunk lid and there is no way to open the trunk lid quickly during an endurance race
– Modify chassis at strut towers to allow for additional clearance of the front upper control for more front suspension travel
– Remove chassis bulk-head and cut out a ton of un-needed steel around that area.
– Modify HR rad support and remove over 5lbs from the already plastic rad support and headlight supports.
– Install Setrab oil cooler
– Lighten the tub by removing material in places we deemed “un-neccessary” by guessing.
– Remove un-necessary cage material and gusset cage to chassis to better share the loads of the chassis through both the cage and unibody

There’s a lot of clean-up left to do and details to finish up, but that is a ridiculous amount of work to get done in one day. Esspecially when you consider 5 people were working around each other.

Sorry for the terrible pictures – but at least you get an idea of what went on:

Rene cutting the ITB runners all up.

Liam sectioning out the chassis to give more clearance to the front upper control arms, which have been known to kiss the chassis at TMP and Mosport

This is the chassis after adding 1/2" of clearance. The hood just barely closes!

ITB test fit. Tight to the valve cover just like they should be.

Fizzer working hard removing the bulk-head and cutting out un-necessary sheet metal from inside the chassis. This will later be re-covered with the old aluminum paneling, and an aluminum enclosure will be built around the dry-break fuel fill area.

The trimmed trunk to fit the dry-break assembly. Looks like a real GT car now.

It was a busy, mess. But damn we made progress.

I will have to weigh all of the material, but it looks like all in all we got about 25-30lbs out of the car. There is still a lore more that can come out, but unfortunately we ran out of time. More Kels tuning to come soon.
