Had this turbo in the shop for a coolant leak. Seems to be the theme with these cars lately. With a gazillion rubber hoses there are a lot of places for these cars to leak from. This car with under 70k miles has had numerous hose leaks which it shouldn’t have at 70k miles. The passenger turbo cooling return line runs from the turbo to the connection at the oil cooler. Most places would drop the engine to replace the …

Remember this old girl? Well it has been a slow rebuild while I have had time. When I stripped the paint off the frame our painter took a look at the frame and we found it was extremely bent…..like run head on into a tree bent! That presented a bit of a problem! Here you can see the dent at the neck of the frame. It is far worse in person! With the frame as is, you would always feel …

New Lift?

Running on a bit of a limited schedule this week as we had a lift start to act up (ok, I should have died under it long ago), so we have pulled it out and are waiting for Myers brothers to install a new Rotary next week. Should be back up to full capacity early in the week!

Over the last couple of weeks I have been scouring the countryside for a decent 99 boxster to build into another customer SPEC Boxster Race Car. After numerous trips and failed PPI’s, we finally found a 45k mile car in Omaha a few weeks ago and retrieved it. I drove it back from Omaha, pulled in the front door and starting tearing it apart. No time to waste! Tan interior is in great shape and for sale ๐Ÿ™‚ I pulled …

Had this 2011 Challenger come into the shop for a Hearthrob Cat-back exhaust install. It all went pretty smoothly, with the exception of the rear hangers which I think could have been designed much better. The stock exhaust is a bit bulky to say the least Front clamps are easy to remove, drop the exhaust from the hangers, and out of the car. New exhaust ready to go in! And the old exhaust out of the car. First install the …

Had this little Gallardo in the shop the other day for a simple battery change and to open the valves on the exhaust. Battery is under the front bonnet and behind the trunk liner. You can see part if it behind the access panel for jumping the car. A bit of work to remove the cd changer, trunk liner, etc and you can get to the battery for replacement. Pretty standard replacement really. Then it was time to open up …

A couple of weeks ago we loaded up and headed to Hastings NE for 18 hours of chump car racing. After pulling the car out of storage after a year of sitting, we had a lot of major work to do which took a couple of weeks of prep. The initial outing at Autobahn raceway was not good, the guys lost a fuel pump and had some running issues that they could not figure out. Our outing to Hastings was …

Wes picked up this little bike a few months ago to start his own restomod project. He is going Cafe Racer theme with this one, so it should be pretty cool! This is probably one of the roughest bikes we have torn down so far. Everything was rusted together quite badly. It all cleaned up nicely in the bead blaster though, and the current state is looking great. This bike has lived a rough life. I believe this bike’s engine …

Hooked up BWT to the trailer on Thursday and headed down to Oklahoma City to Oklahoma Foreign auto parts to pick up some much needed parts. Probably not good to get spoiled driving a brand new rig that can roast the tires with a 24 foot trailer behind it. It just don’t care what is behind it. HP sells cars, torque wins races ๐Ÿ™‚ Jager ready to roll! 5 down, 5 back, and a few hanging out at OK foreign. …

A couple weeks ago after racing at MAM, we came home via a trip to the breeder. We had planned to get a new puppy in September from the same breeder we got Tia from, but the dog we were breeding now has Diabetes that got so bad she had to be put down ๐Ÿ™ Her name was Jรคger. So we found another breeder north of KC and went to check them out on the way home. Hint: Don’t go …
