A box load of series 2A parts arrived for our weekend warrior!! Electronic ignition to Shock absorbers…
135 BMW down pipe install, great kit supplied by the customer, very tight fit, a bit fiddly to get it in but looks and sounds great.
Above and below shows just how close this install is. Only mm’s clearance from bolt heads etc, what a squeeze!
Want more boost?!
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!!
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.
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.
Old verse new, catalytic converter delete, and larger diameter outlet
Some stunning work done here, this paint was covered in swirls and imperfections, probably looks better now than it did the day it left the show room
