We installed a large front mount intercooler to this Ford Focus RS
We replaced the rear diff on this lovely BMW Z4
Jaguar S Type 2.7d Twin Turbo Sport Auto (2005)
Standard, this car produces the following numbers;
- Power – 206 bhp
- Touque – 320 lbs/ft
- Urban – 25.9 mpg
- Combined – 36 mpg
- Extra Urban – 46.5 mpg
The story so far
this car has been purchased for mainly business use with a planned 18,000miles per year and some family duties… It has covered 154,000 miles with full Jaguar main agent service history. The previous owner has maintained the vechicle very well it has had new front and rear discs & pads, radiator & intercooler, along with new zenon headlights. Both rear wishbones have also been replaced recently. The car is in excellent condition and drives beautifully. It’s like driving a sofa, very comfortable and responsive.
Firstly, we have replaced the air filter with a K&N free flow filter, added Activ8 friction reducer and applied Forte diesel injector cleaner, the car was previously returning 24mpg, it is now returning 30mpg.
We have plans to give the car a power run to see what are the current power and touque readings, we will also see how high we can get the mpg numbers in real day to day driving…
The big cat has now covered over 165,000 miles…few, time to replace those springs and shocks, while we are at it how about some new disc’s and some super stopping brake pads.
Customer came into us for a re-map which led on to a massive project…..something to get excited about!
What we did:
- Full engine build, with forged conrods and pistons, balanced and lightened crankshaft, cylinder heads overhalled.
- Turbos reworked and uprated for higher flow
- Custom made uprated intercoolers and induction system
- Uprated custom fuel system including fuel pumps and injectors
- Full custom uprated exhaust system in stainless steel
- Brake system uprated to ‘VERY BIG’ Brembo setup (front and back)
- Re-mapped engine ECU on our 4wd Dastek dyno
This all adds up to a 2003 Porsche Cayenne Turbo with 600+bhp using very little effort and a moderate turbo boost pressure of 1.2bar
Standard this car has 228bhp and 500nm, we upgraded the turbo and the intercooler along with remapping the ECU,
