Default Sportcar Motion: Project Dirty Hybrid! CRZ

Project: Dirty Hybrid
Sportcar Motion
Owner: Daniel (srodaniel)

Here is a first look at our newest project. This hybrid is already very easy on the eyes. But, it was time to make this hybrid just a little dirty. We are really excited to be working on this!

Here is a look at the CRZ as it sits today!


























































And, the beginning of something dirty…











To be continued………

These tires/wheels are just for the purpose of rolling around the shop. New functional tire/wheel combo coming next week.

Update on our progress for the week. Working on the custom radiator, oil cooler, interior work and exhaust. We should have a big update for you all in the next few days. And, as long as our week goes smoothly you can catch this car on display at next weekend’s event in SF Wekfest 2012 at our Sportcar Motion booth.










Working on the custom “tucked” radiator hehe







-22! Yikes!






Gutting the interior making some “changes”














Doin’ work!













More work on the exhaust. ARK exhaust














More interior work











Oil cooler done!







A little something to leave you with. Stay tuned!

Happy Valentine's Day! If this isn't love, I don't know what is! K+CRZ=love

Here is a quick look at the swap going in today! Yes, this is my motor out of my CTR! She was a great organ donor as I am building a new K24 for the R. My swap is going to be fun in this car! Many more pics to come shortly guys!
Many more pics to come shortly guys!








BIG thanks for Brian and the boys at Hasport for getting things shipped super fast! We will be attending Wekfest 2012 this weekend in SF along with the KCRZ! Be sure to come by our booth this weekend and check it out if you come out to the show!

Exhaust is done. Had to do some minor modification to make this work with the Skunk 2 Alpha header for K-series. But this ARK exhaust looks great!

More pictures from todays work. Got the manifold, custom SCM cold air intake, throttle body, and radiator all done. Have to say the fitting and lines for the radiator look AWESOME! Almost ready for the long drive up to SF with the CRZ for Wek’fest!
