We keep you updated on the progress of our client’s BMW M6, his SAVAGE BMW M6!
Stoptech Big Brake Kit. These kits not only look amazing when installed but they really work, offering great pedal feel and huge stopping power with no fade!
3rd June 2016
Installation of a KW coilover suspension kit. The car rides at the perfect height to suit the bodywork mods and handling has been improved greatly
24th June 2016
We begin the install of the next stage of performance upgrades
It’s time for a supercharger!
6th July 2016
Supercharger install complete, then it’s on our dyno for mapping…
The owner of this Discovery 3.0 TDV6 had a complaint of excess smoke from the exhausts.
We stripped down the air box and first of all carried out a leak test, we found no leaks but what we did find was oil in the air box.
The turbos use oil for lubrication and it is normal to find some oil in the intake pipes but to have this much we knew it was being pushed back.
As this engine has a sequential twin turbo set-up the small turbo kicks in first and then the larger turbo. What was happening was the Turbo Control Valve switching the boost over wasn’t functioning correctly. This caused boost pressure to leak and force oil back to the airbox.
The engine now runs perfectly, with no excess smoke from the exhaust
Our client Tom brought back his Golf GTI for some further upgrades.
Bilstein shock absorbers matched with Eiback springs, Eibach sway bars (F&R) and an ECU remap
Now she handles just as well as she pulls – our client Tom is very pleased with how different and improved the car is

Our client Gary brought in his R34 GTR for a more aggressive track set-up on the suspension. The car is used mainly for track days although it is fully road legal.
The front tyres were wearing on the outside which meant among other things the camber had to be adjusted to ensure more surface area of the tyre is in contact with the tarmac under extreme cornering.
We fitted top adjustable camber arms, upgraded rear subframe bushes and we carried out a 4 wheel alignment
Our client brought in his beautiful 911 SC 3.0, this car is a classic and is in mint condition.
We carried out a full inspection, service and treated the alloy wheels to some wheel sealant from Carboncollective (this will protect the wheels from brake dust and other inconveniences for up to 3 years)
This savage BMW M6 has had brake and styling upgrades previously but this time our client brought her in to fit a KW coilover suspension kit.
The car now rides at the perfect height and handling has been improved greatly.
There are plans for future modifications and we will write about them as they happen
We remapped the stand-alone ecu in this Honda Powered Peugoet 106.
The car made 375bhp with the current setup but will be aiming for 430-450bhp with meth injection system working 100%

Brake disc skimming can be performed on even these drilled and grooved Tarox brake discs.

Our client brought his Audi RS4 in to carry out brake disc skimming on the front brake discs.
This cost effective process evens out the brake disc surface, eliminating brake judder and prolonging the life of not only the braking system but other components linked to steering.

We remapped the MI16 engine in this 309 GTI, power was up to 180bhp which makes for a seriously fun track weapon!
Our client JM had to have his Chevrolet Corvette Z06 recovered in after slave cylinder failure, also had replacement clutch fitted and some electrical diagnostics.
This Vauxhall Corsa came in for a tune-up and some dyno power runs. It made 80bhp which is more than enough for the lad that races it as he is only 8 years old!
We remapped this Vauxhall Astra for our client Mark. This track car was built mostly by his father and finished off by Mark. Now they can go and enjoy some track day fun with the 200bhp the car now produces!
This Golf GTI came to us as the power wasn’t right even after modifications performed by another garage including exhaust and remap. So we initially diagnosed and fixed a fault with the turbo wastegate, then ran the car up on the dyno to see what power was being produced, unfortunately now the car was making the true boost pressure it presented another weakness – the remap that had been put on the ECU wasn’t right and was causing the engine to hold back on full throttle
We put a new map on the ECU and now she runs beautifully and our client is very happy
This beautiful beast has now been 4 Wheel Laser Aligned and returned to our happy client
We had this Audi A4 3.0tdi in for an ECU remap. The power and torque produced is very reliable and makes the car much more enjoyable to drive.
Before: 257bhp / 383.8lb/ft
After: 290.9bhp / 413.7lb/ft
We changed a fuel pump cam follower on this Audi A3 2.0TFSI.
“It is a very cheap part and isn’t a great deal of labour to change but in the long run can save you a hell of a lot of money! We have seen them completely wear through (you can see this one is starting to wear) and kill cams! Which is expensive and costs much more in time. Not many people know about changing this little follower.”
Dyno performance runs on a Ford Sierra XR 4×4. With a few recommended tweaks this car will be pushing 250bhp
A very clean car indeed and a throwback to yesteryear
Today we serviced this lovely Porsche Panamera 4s
