Need Carburetor Help?

We’ve got you covered.  We repair, rebuild and tune carburetors.  This 1984 Ford F150 came in this week with a no start condition.  Customer was installing this Holley 850 and couldn’t quite get it finished up.

Upon inspection when it arrived, we found the crankcase full of fuel.  When we did get it to fire the engine shot fuel out of the dip stick tube.  After removing the carb we found the floats were stuck just dumping fuel into the cylinders.  After cleaning up the carb, changing the oil and filter, reinstalling the carb, found the throttle cable too short holding the throttle at 3000 RPM.  New throttle cable and choke cable later this one is running again.  She still needs some tuning but she’s running again.

2015 Ford Mustang GT shifter support bracket and support bushing

With only 2,000 miles on it; the owner of this brand new Mustang GT wasted no time modifying the car to his taste. This support bracket transitions the factory manual shifter from being a remote shifter in to a solid mount setup. Essentially, this bracket will allow your stock shifter to function just like a T-5. No more grinding gears, high RPM lockouts or missed shifts. The bushing is to help cure the transmission mount has extreme voiding that allows for excessive and dangerous transmission movement which causes misalignment of the linkage mechanism. When that happens the end results are in the form of missed-shifts and binding under aggressive shifting or heavy-cornering.

Mustang GT with intake upgrades

We have this 2000 Mustang GT here for some tuning after getting an upgrade from the conservative factory setup. The car now sports a TrickFlow throttle body, K&N cold air intake, and is equipped with an SCT tuner to calibrate the car for the new values.

2009 Shelby GT500 Mustang

Got this Shelby in with some power issues that were traced to the catalytic converters being spent. The car already had a custom cat back exhaust system and since the customer wanted to upgrade to Kooks Long Tube headers; he went ahead and ordered their new “green” high flow catalytic converters. This GT500 can breathe right once again and makes incredible power.

1951 Ford Panel Suspension Airbag Issues

We received this beautiful 1951 Ford Panel this morning.  She was towed in last night because the front airbag suspension would not inflate.  After a thorough inspection we found one of the compressor solenoid vent valves was stuck open.  We disassembled the solenoid, cleaned up the valve and reassembled it, and up, up, and away she went.  Once we had the system operational again, we found a few other items needing some attention.  We noticed the compressors would not turn off, after the system pressure reaching 180 PSI we decided to shut it down before the bomb went off.  We found the pressure switch stuck closed not allowing the system to turn off once maximum pressure was achieved.  To finish it off, the rocker switches used to control the ride height were a getting sticky so we’re replacing those while we’re at it.  After a little TLC this rig is ready to get back on the road and have some fun in the sun.

How she looked upon arrival.

 

With work, comes elevation.

1990 Mazda MX-5 Spec Miata Racecar

IMG_1253

Spec Miata is a class of racing used in road racing events across the US. The Spec Miata (SM) class is intended to provide the race in low-cost cars with limited modifications; mainly those suitable for racing competition. Regualtions of aftermarket parts and accessories are in place to encourage low cost, production car based competition leveling out the car’s capabilities making it more a test of driver skills.

Today number 308 is here for a dyno run and tune to find the proper air fuel mixtures from idle to redline for power at any point in the race while being within the guidelines. Check out the pop-off Sparco steering wheel and the required cage.

Fabrication.

We can handle your fabrication needs here at Fast specialties! Tube bending, Inter cooler plumbing, turbo manifolds, exhaust, suspension components, you name it, we can make it a reality!

These Fuel cells were modified to include there own pumps, filter and wiring, making them a stand alone fuel system for a secondary fuel source while running high boost. One cell assembly is shown using dual 255 pump assemblies, while the other uses a larger in line pump for higher flow.

Down pipe fabrication is something we do a lot here at Fast, this one is built for a dsm engine with a 2.5″ v-band outlet flange and a recirculating waste gate.

Here are a few more examples of downpipes built to clear tight obstructions. Our downpipes are Tig welded and back purged.

Pre-turbo fab work means custom turbo manifolds. For a lot of engine a commercial manifold is available, but when a one off or custom solution is needed, we build it. Weather made from schedule 10, 40 ,tube, stainless or steel, we got it covered!

On the cold side of the turbo is the inter cooler, again, when a kit is not available, the custom fabrication begins. This includes air cleaners, compressor housing mods, charge piping, bead rolling and boost bracing.

Mandrel bent exhaust work, don’t fall for muffler shop crush bent exhaust, you spent the money to make the power, don’t leave it choked up under the car stuck in a pipe. While fine for normal cars, crush bent piping can ofter loose 50% of its cross section during a bend. You paid for 3″ piping, this means almost 10″ of cross section, not 5″. Leave the crush bent stuff to the daily driver, not the hotrod.

Supercharger Repair

Customer brought us a supercharged F-150 that was making noise from the blower; and not the awesome supercharger whine. The coupler located behind the snout was making excessive noise. The purpose of the coupler is to prevent gear damage by absorbing the shock load from accelration rather than forcing the flex of the internal supercharger gears. Repair kit is on its way and this truck  can go back to making awesome power.
