Look out competition! GelandeVentures (William McBride and James Opel) with the help of OCD Custom Cycles & Auto Repair (Marc Beyer) has made the Rally-G more powerful under the hood and now it is truly unstoppable. We did an swap from the 230 gas engine to the OM606A turbo diesel engine and manual to electronic 5-speed transmission. Dieselmeken upgraded and tuned the injection pump for up to 280 hp. More cooling systems, fans and vents have been added for all fluids. Frame has been reinforced and suspension was upgraded to triple by-pass Fox shocks.
