We have had this awesome R33 GTR Drag car in for a few jobs and just finished off the in house custom fabrication for a double 3" oval side exit drag style exhaust system mainly due to it restricting the cars engine performance, once on we strapped it on the dyno to check and its now pushing an easy 950bhp, hopefully we will have this car back in soon for further work ECU upgrade and some tuning so we can easily smash 1000bhp and see what it can really do.

Check out the latest development at Unichip Europe. The Porsche 997 is a very fast car in stock form, however now with the installation of the Unichip Q4 it has now been able to be tuned to a much higher standard with switchable maps, high power 640bhp, overrun, economy and immobiliser maps all at the press of a button.

A change from the usual big powered GTR's we usually have in here at Redline Tuning, this time we had a R33 GTS in here for tuning on Link G4+ECU, fresh from having its engine rebuilt from Jap Performance Parts. Once we got a fews bits of wiring sorted on the car we got it onto the rollers and strapped down, it made very usable and might i add tail happy 530 bhp at just over 1.4 bar, should keep the customer happy for a while.

We had Dean bring his Glanza to us last week he had been suffering with a few issues and the car was not running properly mainly due to the TPS and wiring being faulty, We fitted it with our new TPS kit that we have developed here in house to work with standalone ECU which will be available to buy very soon, once this was rectified and a few other problems sorted out we managed to get it on the rollers and do some mapping, look forward to seeing the car back soon so we can run some boost and see what figures it makes.

Stunning!!! after having had Russel's absolutely immaculate Mk1 escort in here for quite some time having a number of different jobs completed it was finally able to leave under its own steam, what a cracking car, can we see how many likes we can get for this amazing restored Mk1 escort, which is probably in better condition now than when it left the factory all those years ago.

Absolutely brilliant, cant wait to see it when its all painted and looking 100%, this 105E Van came to us running with its 2.0 conversion done on web-con management however it was not nice to drive, the customer didn't want to spend a fortune on an ECU for this so we decided to replace the Webcon for a Motorsport Electronics NODIZ Pro, once fitted and set up the van drove brilliant, you would never have known you were driving a car from the 1960's absolutely brilliant.

We had this cracking high spec Evo 9 in yesterday at Redline Tuning for some dyno work. Customer wasn’t 100% sure he was getting the most out of the car with the current setup on it and had a few drivability issues. We put the car on to the dyno to see what it was making. We saw that there was some improvements to be had from the car so we set about retuning the car, making nearly a 100bhp increase it was now a totally different animal now with just over 600bhp and 600ftlb it pulls hard, we also set up the launch control and another tablet to display all the data and dash display from the Link G4 ECU. Hopefully the customer is now pleased with the performance of the car.

One of my personal favourites this car! One of our regular customers who owns this absolutely stunning Subaru classic WRX decided he wanted to try and get a little bit more usable power out of the car, it already pulled strong but wanted a little more, we opted to go for the blouch (BPT) SC38 hybrid turbo, fitted along with some larger injectors and while we were there the heat wrap was looking rather tired so rewrapped the exhaust system for the customer. The results were amazing and the customer could not believe how much harder the car pulled mid range.

Now can you see a problem in this picture?!!!!?!!!

Customer recently purchased this Discovery 3 and wanted us just to check over a few things as he wasn’t sure on what he had bought, he informed us that the previous owner had advised him to replace one of the lower arm camber bolts as it was cross threaded. 
Well what we found we were rather shocked by, someone had fitted a set of Polybushes and decided they would leave out the aluminium insert that sits in the bush out, and just do the bolt up as tight as they could deforming the mount and then bottoming out the nut on the thread damaging the thread. Well after speaking to Powerflex and getting a new kit we had to rectify the damaged mounts so the bushes would fit in and we fitted the new bushes “with” the aluminium insert, complete with new camber arm bolts and wheel alignment.

You have got to love this Classic 55 Chevrolet pick up truck that we have had in here at Redline Tuning due to poor running. 
Fault was traced to old corroded damaged fuel line, and after a new filter, we put her onto the dyno to check over and adjust the setup. She now purrs like a kitten, or roars like a tiger which ever way you look at it she sounds great!

We had this 350Z in a last week for tuning, customer had done a few performance upgrades, so we put it on the dyno and ran the vehicle, it wasn't making the power it should have there was something restricting the car, the supposed uprated intake manifold was found to be the cause of the power loss! the stock intake was put back on and were back making the power we should be, be careful what products you put on your car people as what we are finding more and more is these supposed uprated performance parts are actually worse than standard. This was tested back to back and the only change was the intake manifold over 20bhp.
