Our favourite customer cars to drop by the workshop...
Gareth's Nissan Silvia
This Silvia was previously used for drag racing but has now been turned into a show car. Running a moderate 374bhp (used to run a forged 500bhp engine) it still has some go in it. For Gareth it's all about how it looks now which you can tell from the chrome works vskf wheels, the purple neon lights and the starlight headliner. However it is still running Nos, has a roll cage and isn't shy for the odd burnout. The latest upgrade we've undertaken on this car is fitting Air Ride which allows Gareth to maintain the super low stance when at shows but allows for a slightly more practical ride height to avoid damaging the DMAX body kit.
Patrick's Mazda 3MPS
Patrick has brought his car in for various upgrades to us. As you can see it's literally on the floor thanks to airlift suspension. Despite the show car stance looks, this car has 370 bhp with the help of a CPE top mount intercooler, Auto Tech high pressure fuel pump, 3" HTP intake, Forge v2 recirculation valve, J Tuned custom remap via versatune and a Custom powerflow stainless steel catback exhaust system.
Matt's Nissan 200sx s14a
This is my old s14 which Matt bought as a rolling shell with the roll cage and interior you see. We will be bringing this back to life for Matt to be able to enjoy on the road and track this summer once he has secured an engine for it. Stay tuned for more...
Jordans Toyota GT86
Jordans GT86 came into us with the 1UZ V8 engine already fitted so we are just finishing off the project making a few improvements and tying up any loose ends. One of the biggest changes that we've made to this build is to fit a Mustang GT500 supercharger which not only will work alot better, it also looks awesome. The original wiring loom which was supplied with the engine was not up to scratch so we got Chris from Phoenix Engine Management to come in and make a complete new custom loom for the vehicle. Unfortunately, after many months of making and fitting new parts we found out that the original engine was no good so we had to do a last minute replacement on it which meant undoing all of our hard work and swapping everything over to the new engine. Thankfully now the engine is running and we just have to button up the last few parts of the project.
Auto Extreme's Nissan Skyline R33 GTST
We have maintained this car for a couple of years now doing many performance modifications. Most recently we have done an overhaul on the underside of the vehicle giving it a full underseal and replacing many of the suspension arms for newer and better quality ones that represent what the company sells. We also replaced alot of the original bushes with polyurethane ones.
Finally, we replaced the old worn out head lights for some nice new Nissan ones as well as fitting a Tomei titanium exhaust system.
Hamish's 200sx S14
Hamish bought the car to us with the engine already converted to a 1JZ, other than an intercooler and exhaust system it was in stock form. Since then its had an Syvecs ECU fitted and we have made a custom exhaust system for it. We are now currently upgrading it with a 6 boost manifold and a Borg Warner efr top mount turbo. While it is here we also replaced every suspension arm with new Hardrace ones along with some Driftworks Geomaster 3 knuckles. We have also converted the gearbox from the Toyota R154 to a Nissan cd009 and fitted a Kazz Super-Q two way differential. The braking system has been upgraded to K-Sport 8 pot brakes on the front and R33 Skyline rear brakes.
Karl's Kit Car
The Kit Car came to us with its previous engine already removed and replaced with the brand new Ford 2.0 Litre Zetec engine mounted to a Type 9 gearbox. The engine was fitted to the mounts but that was as far as they had gone so it was our job to finish off the install.
We were given no parts with the car other than the pipework to make the exhaust manifold so everything else had to be supplied, fitted and even made by ourselves. We supplied a pair of twin 45 Weber Carburetors along with
Martin's Mitsubishi Evo 6
Martin bought his Mitsubishi Evo 6 into us for a full underseal and to give it that extra clean look he wanted white underseal to be used, as you can see it definitely gives it that show look.
Whilst it was with us Martin bought new powder coated suspension arms, along with a full upgrade to SuperPro Polybushes for us to fit. Finally we aligned all four wheels and gave the car a full service.
Callum's Toyota Cressida
