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.

1967 Camaro Valve train Adjustments

Concerned with excessive engine noise; this ’67 Camaro came in to have a look at and see what the issue was. Removing the valve covers revealed a rocker stud backing out of the block; and a couple vavle springs needed adjustment. A slight adjustment to the idle and the car is much more responsive and quieter as well.

Lincoln Mark VIII exhuast

You don’t see many Mark VIIIs on the road; and this is one perfect example. But being a typical Lincoln – it was too quiet for a hot rod guy. We welded on a pair of glasspack mufflers with resonated tips that give it a deep rumble letting you know there’s power to back it up. IMG_0756 IMG_0758

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.

Dodge Ram exhaust upgrade

IMG_0867 IMG_0868 IMG_0869 IMG_0873 IMG_0874 IMG_0875The owner of this ’06 Ram with a HEMI loved the power his truck puts down; but not the quiet restrictive exhaust. We ordered up a Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust system at the customer request and it sounds amazing; looks better to since the kit turns a factory single pipe to dual side exit.

 

 

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.
