When you debut something you say is homage to the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, it has to be special — and fast. Ryan Basseri from RyWire did that and hit it right on the head with this CSF Radiator and RyWire collab to create the Honda Integra #GT3.
It all starts with the perfect color and livery scheme. Nothing less than Porsche's 997 GT3 RS Orange and matching stripe job along the bottom edge of the doors will do.
The engine started out as a K24 block but a Golden Eagle sleeve job improves the cylinder strength for the Crower pistons and connecting rods. It's topped with a Port Flow-ed K20 head and valve train and Web Cam camshafts. It takes eight Injector Dynamics 1000cc injectors to keep this beast fueled to perfection.
A Honda HPD three-stage dry sump system keeps the engine oiled for hard acceleration, braking, and cornering.
A Billet Bellhousings transmission case fits the Quaife sequential transmission to the K24 block. To take the brunt of the torque a Competition twin-disc clutch and Tilton hydraulic throw-out bearing assembly transfer power to the axles.
An OMP steering wheel with Recaro quick release makes getting out of the ITR much easier. The dash, just like the panels, is a custom made piece from aluminum and houses a Motec C127 digital dash. Behind the steering wheel is a pair of Shiftec paddle controls for the inline shifter.
A Precision Turbo 62/65 turbo forces air in the Golden Eagle intake manifold controlled by a Toyota DBW electronic throttle with a Toyota throttle pedal. A Garrett intercooler cools the charged air.
To keep Ryan safe on the track, a custom designed roll cage was welded in and aluminum panels installed to clean up the stripped out and gutted interior.
A single Recaro seat with Willans harness keeps the driver in full control and planted in the seat.
A pair of Bosch 044 fuel pumps reside in the rear hatch while a third pumps fuel from the Nuke surge tank. Nuke fuel filters also keep fuel contamination to a minimum.
A prototype set of Volk Racing ZE40 wheels in 17-inch diameter are fitted over the AP Racing Indy Car custom front and rear brakes. 17-inch Toyo R888 tires keep the grip while a set of Insane Shafts 1,000hp axles and intermediate shafts put them into a twist from the torque.
Eibach R2 adjustable coilovers control the motions of the PCI prototype front upper control arms and adjustable rear upper arms. ASC custom rear lower arms further the precision of the alignment. In this picture, you also see the Hasport mounts that hold the K24 block in place in the engine bay.
Taking the place of the shifter is the Motec CAN keypad, which controls the headlights, screen mode, water pump, engine fans, fuel pumps, and a few other functions.
That CAN keypad also controls the reset of the M170 ECU that features GPR-P. This is the paddle-shift expansion of the GPR ECU, which also features anti-lag, launch control, traction control, and many other programmable features. With such detail and control put into this build, we're sure that Ryan and CSF Radiators can truly call this a perfect homage to the GT3 RS.
