Everybody needs a break
Once again, Daniel, Dominic and Christian arrive in the DOTZ workshop. But instead of continuing with the project as before, the three encounter a tiny drawback: all planned parts have already been installed. Only the installation of the new body kit is still pending, but unfortunately it has not arrived yet. So while they wait, the boys take the time to reminisce.
The last year was incredible. Within a few months, the DD2.JZ took on its current, unique form.
Even during the winter break, the technicians were able to complete all work on the engine conversion. At the beginning of the year, the DD2.JZ was transferred to ECU performance, where in addition to the engine tuning a so-called dyno run was performed. The result was sensational: in the first stage of development, the 2JZ GTE engine achieved an output of 600 hp.
Such power needs to be restrained, so the technicians started looking for an adequate solution for the brakes. K-Sport donated a 6-piston caliper system in the right size.
The built-in Wisefab kit provides for an increased drift angle.
Of course, the interior was not forgotten. In addition to the Wiechers roll cage, Bride bucket seats and Takata 6-point harness, further design accents have been added to the interior. All trim parts were covered by a saddler with Alcantara leather and color-coordinated seams.
Apart from a small breakdown at the end, the test drive at the PS Racing Center in Greinbach was a great success. Daniel and Christian are visibly thrilled with the performance of the car.
