Ultracapacitors

For years we have been testing homemade ultracapacitor banks in the old cars such as the one on the right. Now commercially available they are a considerable upgrade on original generator powered cars giving you constant power for lamps, quicker charging, easier on the generator, and most of all is not affected from being fully discharged if your car sits around. Due to the power output they are dangerous if you are not careful so do not install one yourself if you are unsure how to do so.

Restoration Failure

This 1966 MG MGB has less than 100 miles since restoration at another shop, which incidentally is no longer is around. The rod bearings were completely worn out, the timing chain tensioner had never been engaged, and camshaft key was almost completely sheared off. Now machined properly and back together the owner can finally enjoy their family heirloom.

Z06 Powered

We have the LT4 Wet Sump Automatic Connect & Cruise Powertrain System w/ 8 Speed transmission installed and running great in the Firebird. This engine has a 10:1 compression ratio, makes 9 pounds of boost, and produces 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque with 100 octane fuel. On our dyno with this configuration and running 91 octane for testing purposes we are seeing 541 horsepower and 613 lb-ft. of torque.
