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.
