Subaru Legacy 3.0r Spec B remap with excellent results

Here we have a 2005 Subaru Legacy 3.0r Spec B, this car had a custom exhaust and intake fitted this year and our customer wanted to maximise his investment in these by remapping the ECU.

Normally, power gains on naturally aspirated cars from remaps alone is 10% but with the breathing mods in place the result was in fact closer to 20%.

Maximum power now 288bhp with torque sitting at a healthy 251 Ibft

Watch (and listen) to the following video of the final power run on our dyno

Audi A4 2.0tdi crank sensor fault

This Audi A4 Avanti 2.0tdi unfortunately decided that after every 15 minutes of running it would completely stop.

We diagnosed the fault to being a faulty crankshaft sensor. This component is small and very difficult to gain access to, but once changed it solved the problem for the car and the customer.

See just how tricky it was to get the sensor changed.

Audi A5 Coupe replace timing chain, repair head and valves

Here we feature a 59′ plate Audi A5 Coupe with just over 100,000 miles on the clock. The timing chain stretched and jumped 6 teeth! This unfortunately took out the valves and caused damage to the cylinder head.

We stripped the engine, revealing the damage, we replaced the valves and machined the head as new and replaced the timing chain with a new one.

In the pictures you can see us re-gassing the air conditioning as we had to strip the front of the car down (hence no front bumper) to gain access to the engine.

Mini with Yamaha R1 engine - wiring loom work in progress

So here we have a rare little beast, a classic Mini with a not so classic Yamaha R1 motorbike engine fitted, imagine 13,000rpm!

We were asked to take a look at running problems and electrical issues. We found a number of major issues in the wiring and decided it would be better to start again rather than to patch something up for an issue to potentially arise later down the line.

Claudio has the wiring loom laid out….all over the workshop…its in order (in his mind at least) it looks very complicated!
