Default The build of the Race Egg

Figured I'd go ahead and start a thread for the MC Accent that I have been building. Some people already know about this but a lot still don't.



I will list up most of the details of the build but the pictures will start to come later as things get closer to being finished. Most of the parts for this build came from my boosted RD that I made a thread about last year. But unfortunately, the tib became too rusty for my liking and I decided it wasn't worth it to fix anymore..



Which lead me to the Accent, aka "Race Egg" -

How much HP do you think you'll end up with when you're done? And what tires will you use to keep the power to the ground?

Accent Goals right there! With all the beta swaps you see on here, this is probably the coolest one since it's using an MC and not an LC Accent.

This is really awesome. It would be great if you could share some of the Beta swap details such as how you got the mounts to work, what axles you used, etc.



I bet this thing will be incredible!

I've been working on this swap since about May of this year. Other Beta swaps have been done in the MC accent but they generally all use the Alpha II transmission which bolts right up to the Beta block. The people who go this route can use all of the stock brackets minus the passenger one, which needs to use a bracket from a XD elantra.



Since I'm doing a full Beta swap (engine/transmission/shifter) I had to design a front engine bracket and transmission bracket along with using the XD elantra bracket on the passenger side. I'm currently using the stock MC Accent axles as they fit in the trans just fine and are long enough to bolt into the hubs.



For the time being, I'm hoping to make about 350-400whp on e85 with around 15psi. This won't be a daily driver either and I have built block with Pauter rods and Wiesco pistons that will go in sometime next year. I'm looking to pick up some 225/50/16 Falken Azenis to help cut down on traction issues, which I already know will happen.



I'll keep the first post as the master build list and will add things to it occasionally as I remember them. I'm sure I am forgetting things.

Might as well begin the photo dump with how the car looked before I started tearing into it.





Stock Alpha II engine/trans











Pulled the core support for ease of access











Sandblasted the bay and cradle as there was tons of surface rust











Prepped and primed the surfaces











Finished everything off with bed liner. I really like how everything came out!











Sandblasted the front fender wheel wells and used bed liner on them as well
