Todd and I both bought a HUGE upgrade for our LS1 944’s this year. The cars are stupid fast on the race track, and in certain areas of the track, also a bit scary due to the lightweight and high speeds. We decided to tackle that this spring and see what it would do. We called up Kyle and Cody of Brooks Motorsports and had them work their magic. Their stuff runs on the NASA TT3 national champs car, so …

Since the Honey Badger is having custom pistons made we are at a standstill on that project, so after seeing the orange bike, Mike brought his 1978 CT70 that he has had since new by for a refresh! This bike has about 3500 miles on it, so it is well used! His kids grew up on it, so it has it’s share of dents and bent handle bars etc, but in true Mike fashion, everything has been well cared for …

With the orange CT70 out of the way, we found another beat up example to get running for Valerie. This example is a 1972 CT70HK1. The H models came with the 4 speed manual engine, but well, that is out of here. Wes was able to get that engine up and running after a little carb work, so it will be set aside for another project. To help with the learning process of being on a bike, we decided to …

This little 997S came into the shop a few weeks back to rejuvenate some life back into it and the owner’s love for the car! After years of owning the same car, everyone hits that wall where they are tired of the same car with the same performance. Many will trade off and buy a newer model, dropping a lot of money in the process. Some will add a little pep to the car to make it seem like a …

Ok, I have to get back to blogging on a regular basis. Sometimes the projects seem redundant and uninteresting to me, but I forget others enjoy seeing these cars in various states of repair. We have been in full blown track season mode, daily driver business is rocking, and the performance modification business is starting to pick up speed after a few years of being stagnant with the economy. Vlad the impaler came in for some preventative maintenance before heading …

Blog has been a little slow as things have been crazy to say the least. I have had the CT70 done with the exception of the clutch cable to arrive, but I got that in this week, on the bike, and she has her first 4 trouble free miles on her 🙂 I waited for quite awhile for the parts to arrive to rebuild the front forks. I needed the piston spacer sleeves on both sides which were on backorder. …

Man it has been a boring winter, but glad we are getting some performance work back in the shop and making cars faster! The 911SC project is up and running, but just didn’t sound very good, so we added a Fabspeed cat bypass and muffler to the car which greatly improved the sound! Old system off the car and ready for the scrap man. New exhaust installed Thumbs up approval!

When last I left you I had stripped the bike apart, and blasted the frame down to metal. The chrome was blasted and sent to the powdercoater, now it is reassembly time. First thing to do was to install the Lifan 125cc engine so I had a good base for the frame to sit and not tip over. Then get it up on a bench to work an ergonomic level 🙂 The new decals were installed and the main chassis …

It isn’t good to have a dirty mind. While we have been jamming out routine work over the last couple weeks, when oddball things come through the shop they are always fun. Had my buddy RT swing by with his H2 hummer to replace a leaking airbag on the rear axle. Over time, the bags will dry rot and start to leak, which will cause a corner to sag. The compressor will then run excessively to try and keep the …

Had this little Pepper limp into the shop yesterday with a bad primary fuel pump. The 955 has dual fuel pumps, one on each side of the tank. Often times the primary will die, causing stalling issues with the vehicle. Pumps are located under the seats and under the carpet. You actually have to cut a hole in the carpet to access the pumps, but Porsche was kind enough to draw an outline of where to cut 🙂 Following the …
