terapaautoelectrical.co.nz Note, the website is still to be updated, but you get the idea….)

Very exciting times for us here at Wellington European, taking on another business in another location, a great new challenge for us and we see both businesses will complement each other and add to the services offered in both locations.

‘utrack’ GPS trackers

Want some extra security for you car, boat, trailer or personal belonging. ‘utrack’ is a great piece of tech that can be charged up and/or hard wired into your vehicle. They come with a great app for your smart phone or web browser. Some of the features include the obvious, GPS location of your unit. Tracking on a time line, location and speeds. History shown too. Great for getting your ‘Geek’ on!!

Other uses include added security, as well as some useful health and safety benefits for business types with fleets of vehicles. Knowing where your vehicles and workers are at any given time. Tracking parked hours at locations can be a useful tool in itself while pricing/justifying chargeable hours for offsite work.

GeoFence. Add a virtual perimeter or multiple virtual perimeters and receive alerts when your vehicle leaves your allocated zones..

Immobilizer options, some units come with this feature where we isolate the fuel pump power supply and can remotely disable the vehicle. What a great feature!!

We are currently installing at Wellington European and Te Rapa Auto Electrical.

Utrack units come in different shapes and sizes, check out the utrack website for the full range.

Above and below shows just how close this install is. Only mm’s clearance from bolt heads etc, what a squeeze!

Mini Cravenspeed supercharger reduction pulley kit

Want more boost?!

Cravenspeed have the kit for you, and weeu got to fit one.  Required a special tool (pictured) which we now have as part of our service tools (SST’s).

Customer supplied this kit which included the shorter drive belt.  The replacement reduction drive pulley has a chuck style locking mechanism allowing it to be fitted in place, however no room for conventional pullers to get the old pulley off.  Quite a lot of work required to strip back and lift the engine to a height to fit the Cravenspeed pulley puller…..

 

Clever little tool, likely only suitable for this job unlike the various multi fit tools out there.  Couldn’t do the job without it though.

Below, used the old belt to hold the new pulley in place while locating and tightening into position. An old technique for a new job and it work, not recommended on a new belt!!  This is the old and now redundant belt (Phew)..

Ummmm, looks worse that is really is, bonnet up, guard liner folded away, super charger down there somewhere!!

Sleeper!!!!

Mini Toy, and Toy Mini Bike

So we had a visitor over the weekend in his new Toy, his new mini.  but then he pulled out this awesome foldaway push bike…(his other toy).  I think we need courtesy bikes!!!!

Its a surprisingly good ride….

Optional tool kit, I’m told this kit is all you need to completely strip down this bike….. so cool, just a tad smaller than the tool kits we use.

 

Stage 2 Tune, Mk 7 Golf

The target is 336-340HP and 400+ FT of torque.  Tune mods include a Stage 2 remap, full Miltek exhaust (decat system), cold air intake, and upgraded blow off valve…  Other work includes a full set of mags and tyres, carbon rear lip and mirrors. This car will be a huge amount of fun!!

Lets get started!!!

 

 

Above and below showing the difference in the intake systems

There is a turbo up in there somewhere!!!!

New system in, tailpipes look amazing, much larger than the standard.
