Mondeo based jigsaw

If you’ve ever wondered what the first part down the production line is on a V6 mondeo, the answer is ‘The Exhaust Manifolds’.  Our very good and regular customer of ours found himself in trouble when yet again no local garages or exhaust specialists would help him. Despite the drive he wound up back at our door hoping we could fit his tubular exhaust manifolds for him. Unfortunately there were several stubborn nuts and bolts in awkward places making the task a struggle. After several hours we had the manifolds off, or more specifically the car off the manifolds. Once back together the car sounded awesome. Check it out  on you tube on-

Difficult De-cat

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

This lambo was in need of a little extra silencing. The cat’s had failed causing a loss of power and a nasty noise. The customer wanted us to take out the cats and replace them with silencer boxes hoping for more power and less noise. That’s always a tall order but even more so when squeezed into the back of a lambo. We managed to twist and turn the pipework and boxes into the tiny gaps. hopefully the car will be a little quieter, it will certainly get it’s power back with the exhaust breathing properly.

Something a little different

A customer called up and asked if we could build something totally different for his navara. His brief was to build something wild that no-one else has got, and to free up the gasses from his turbo as this particular truck is pushing out some serious power. the pictures speak for themselves, what you can’t see is the decat, and that the twin side pipes match on both sides. Definately different

Super Seat needs more wind

Monday, June 28th, 2010

This seat came to us having already received extensive modificatons. The car was producing super power but had some nasty flat spots in it’s torque curve due to some air restrictions. It already had a very free flowing exhaust on so the only area to improve on was to remove the cat. The induction kit currently on the car left the air filter sitting in the engine bay amongst all the hot air, so we divised a kit that would move the filter to a high pressure air pocket in the inner wing fed by an air vent in the front bumper. Like most modern diesels with this level of work it drives like a Supercar but still returns reasonable fuel economy.
