That's pretty cool! I like the ingenuity with the brake kit and injectors. Did you research all this or is the knowledge out there somewhere?

What CC are those injectors?

Did you mean to say you're using DUAL oem fuel pumps?

That's badass. I didn't know you could throw Beta's into '01's. That is a pretty build. Ultmate sleeper. You gonna keep it looking stock?

I'm kinda surprised both you guys posting are not aware of these conversions lol. I got all the info from this site?



I did mean to say Dual fuel pumps as the whole build is for fun and on a budget, will be my daily driver.

The XG injectors should be around 300cc, though would be nice to source something bigger from the local scrap yard.



Body will stay stock except I will be cutting holes in the hood to vent all the radiators.

I hope you have better luck with that LC trans than my buddy ryan did. His was an N/a better and he still managed to shoot the output shaft into the bellhousing.

Oh I knew about the engine swaps, but I was talking about the brake conversions for the Accent. I did a little research on the Accent brakes to see if I could get a smaller caliper on my RD. lol

Same. I could swear that the points mounting the bracket to the knuckle were slightly smaller.

Could just be the LC then, perhaps the x3 is different?
