The Supersports have arrived from the factory at 999 Motorsports. We will take you through the steps that 999 Motorsports USA goes through to complete the cars and deliver them to their new owners.
The powerplant is the General Motors Ecotec 2.0 liter LNF engine. We use brand new, from the factory engines in our cars. The photo shows the three engines and transmissions as they are uncrated and awaiting final prep and installation.
A potential customer toured our facility, saw the engines lined up and commented that he assumed we would be using junkyard engines, not brand new powerplants. All the components used on the Supersport are brand new, from the factory parts. Even the bolts used to attach the accessories to the engine are General Motors OEM bolts, ordered by the GM part number. We could save a bunch of money buying bolts from the national giant hardware supplier but they would not be exactly what is called for by General Motors.
As we proceed through the assembly process we will show the high level of quality of parts as well as quality of construction of the Supersport!
As we announced back in June, the Supersport now comes with the Hahn RaceCraft Super 20G Mitsubishi turbocharger as standard equipment. This is a larger turbo than the stock GM LNF turbo and will allow the car to be run with the option of selecting the standard 300 horsepower tune or upgrade to a 400+ horsepower tune.
The new turbo fit beautifully into the existing engine and chassis layout of the Supersport. Trifecta Performance is continuing to provide the tunes for both horsepower levels.
Now itâ€™s off to the dyno next week!
Feedback from customers and potential customers told us that upon recognizing the incredible potential of the Supersport they wanted the option of more horsepower.
Partnering with Hahn RaceCraft and our tuning partner Trifecta Performance, we have decided that delivering Supersports with the Hahn developed Super 20G Mitsubishi Turbo Upgrade both fulfills our mandate to maintain unbelievable reliability and offers customers the option to unlock some of the enormous power potential of the LNF 2.0 Ecotec turbo.
As delivered and used in the Supersport Spec Racing Series the Supersport will still make 300 RWHP. This output level provides incredible reliability and low maintenance. These traits are the cornerstones of the Supersport design.
Customers now may choose to give up some of that reliability to have 400+ RWHP available when desired. 999 Motorsports USA offers a $999.00 upgrade kit that allows a customer with a laptop to select either the standard 300 RWHP level or the 400+ RWHP level. The change from one level to the other takes less than 20 minutes and customers can elect to change back and forth at will.
