The Team also bought a set of new Dick Cepek tyres from the USA. The steel rims for the tyres are homemade.
The Compact Diesel will have an 2.2l 4 cylinder turbocharged PSA (Peugeot) engine on diesel fuel. The engine has a PSA engine block with an modified PSA cylinderhead, homemade camshafts with Ferrea valves and valve springs, a modified stock crankshaft, homemade Böhler tool steel rods with modified Nüral pistons and ARP rod bolts, a homemade intake and exhaust manifold, a Holset HX40 turbocharger, a homemade aluminium oil pan, a costum built oil pump, a homemade fuel tank, a Bosch P4-cil diesel fuel injection pump with 12mm elements and a homemade Intercooler.
