WORLD Racing 2011 Webisode #8: Breaking Records In The Garden State
After months of intense preparatory work on FWING 2.0, the World Racing
team packs everything up and heads across country for the 2nd Global Time
Attack event at NJ Motorsports Park.
Scott Stanwood and Eric Plebani problem solve some issues with the master
cylinder after the first qualifying session, while Mike Alejos searches all
over New Jersey for a much needed waste gate. In lieu of the needed part,
Eric and Scott "Frankenstein" together a waste gate from some extra turbonetics supplies on the truck . According
the Christian Rado "the guys made some makeshift modifications to get the
car on the road. For all intensive purposes, it worked, but the car made
51 lbs. of Boost EVERYWHERE!"
The following morning, the boys get the car dialed and in the first GTA
TIME ATTACK session, Rado destroys the previous FWD track record by 8
SECONDS, his best lap time a 1:05:481.
Fwing 2.0 will debut September 17th and 18th 2011 at the Global Time
Attack event @ Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, IL.

Me driving my little pickup truck, hopefully I will get the title next
week. This video has been edited to fit on You tube, so some parts are
Why so SIRIUS? Kia 4g64?
This video assumes you're aware that various iterations of the 4g series
Mitsubishi engines are designated as Sirius I & II.

There's also this at EvolutionM:
Good luck finding info about this using Hyundai and Kia in searches.
Wikipedia doesn't have any info about it grouped with the Sonatas either.
There is no question what this is, well illustrated in this video.
I apologize for the length of this video, but a lot of ground is covered in
a short time. Hopefully there's some information in here you may someday
use. I'm just trying to expose it because there doesn't seem to be any
real information floating around in the forums about this yet.
The car is a first-generation 1999-2005 Kia Optima sedan. It has the EVO
equivalent of a 4g64 2.4L. Before using any of these parts, do your
research, cross-reference your parts and know what you're getting into.
Using parts from this rotating assembly in a 2g Eclipse will require
aftermarket rods and/or custom pistons. This is information for those who
wish to frankenstein their builds, or save a buck... whichever.... either
one of those requires skill.
