This Plymouth Barracuda was brought in to us for a carburetor tune-up, for such a classic American Muscle car the power is very respectable, as is the amount of BHP still being produced after so many years.

This Ford Mustang sounds fantastic on our dyno after fitting new free flowing headers. Power is up considerably too, to 451bhp and 382lbft

This Audi RS4 was previously brought to us for carbon bead blasting of the inlet ports, which were full of carbon deposits. The owner decided he wanted to fully unleash the power available from this wonderful V8 engine. Run1 (before ecu remap) 385bhp / 304 lbft Run 2 (after ecu remap) 431bhp / 317lbft
This Renault Megane RS has had a service and a previous ecu remap by another company, she was brought to us to have the ecu map downloaded and cleaned up. The graph shows a cleaner BHP curve and a stronger and cleaner torque curve. Before ECU cleanup – 263bhp / 267lbft After ECU cleanup & fresh remap – 272bhp / 295lbft
This lovely spec EVO X came in for a full service with timing chain replacement, we used all genuine parts which is what this car deserves!
This is Patrick’s Clio Sport in with us again, this time having some maintenance work, disc skimming and Carbotech pads fitted.
Previous work we have carried out on this car includes Bilstein B16 club sport suspension + setup, LSD upgrade, exhaust system upgrade, ECU remap and now all of that is matched with the new stopping power! To make this an incredible little track car.
We had this great McLaren 540c in to us for upgraded rear brake pads and a full vehicle inspection.
We love these cars!
We installed some quality H&R suspension components on this lovely Porsche 911 Carrera 4S.
Now she sits and handles beautifully!
This is CSK Automotive’s MAX Audi R8, in to PT for 4 wheel alignment after a fully adjustable coilover kit was fitted.
We took on the task of finding an oil leak on the engine of this Porsche 924S. Our client is keen to keep her on the road for as long as possible, and it’s not hard to see why, what a lovely example of a now rare front engine’d Porsche.
We found the oil leak related to the rear seal on the engine crank and now she is all repaired and on her way.
Our trackcar (Perfect Touch / SORmyCAR) has recently received some loving in the form of a Vanos rebuild and a Mishimoto UK radiator to keep coolant temps stable, especially important when on the 13th Nov she will be out on track at Brands Hatch! More on that in a future article.
With this Porsche 911 C4S we carried out works including an ECU remap with the ECU removed and worked on while on our bench, we fitted larger throttle bodies and exhaust headers.
We were tasked with fitting some lovely OEM Carbon parts to the exterior of this BMW M2.
Front bumper side splitters, side skirts, rear carbon lip spoiler.
This BMW X5M was brought into us for an ECU remap. These vehicles are simply awesome anyway so with additional BMW and torque are sure to surprise many sports cars on the road.
Stock figures came out as:
After our ECU remap:
It’s time this M3 had an engine to cope with the supercharger.
The stock engine unfortunately suffered a failure, has been recovered to us and now we will begin planning and building an engine to take the boost!
Keep checking back for the latest updates…
25/02/16 – Recovery of car – planning begins!
26/02/16 – Engine is out!
We didn’t waste any time; the M3 engine is out and ready to be stripped. We will inspect internal damage and prepare for the build. When the car is being built back up we will be tidying up the car in general including fixing other minor faults.
Now the car is in the hands of Perfect Touch it will be looked after, ready to win medals…
02/03/16 – Detonation!
We have had a look at the stripped down engine and can show you what has gone wrong. Essentially the water injection system that was fitted to the intake as part of the Supercharging has failed and the cylinder has become too hot causing the fuel to ignite before it is sparked by the spark-plug. You can see some of the damage this has caused to the top of the piston in the picture below.
We have an update on the progress of the BMW M3 E46 supercharged build. The engine components are starting to arrive, some of which you can see in the pictures below – rods, crankshaft, pistons, injectors and Schrick cams. We are also discussing other plans with the client including engine management and transmission changes. Watch this space…
24/09/17 – Power Run after remap
This stunning old Mustang was lovely to have around the workshop. We did a carburettor tune-up on her.
This is a ‘First Generation’ Mustang which were produced from 1965 to 1973.
Becoming a more common sight at Perfect Touch rolling road are the latest Lamborghinis including this Aventador with its unique bodywork and wrap.
This EVO 10 was brought into us with engine damage, we diagnosed a number of faliures with the engine including a spun big end bearing, damaged rod and crank case damage.
We spoke to our client about what options they had and they decided to upgrade a number of components allowing for a safe increase in power with more reliability.
We supplied and fitted Marley pistons, Manley rods, ARP head stud kit, crank case stud kit and conrod bolts, ACL race bearings, a Commetic head gasket, Garrett Turbo-charger, equal-length header, downpipe, we renewed the timing chain and guides, skimmed the head, intake and exhaust valves cut and seated, new oil cooler and oil pump, Walbro fuel pump, injectors upgrade. To increase gearbox reliability for more power we have also up
Next up is to run in the engine over 500 miles minimum before dynoing and mapping the car.
This Honda Accord Type-S K24 underwent some power upgrades with us. We fitted a supercharger, matched with bigger injectors, our own custom 3.5inch intake, K Tuner ECI and a quality map by Romain on our Dyno.
She made a healthy 329bhp! Check out the gallery and video below
This exciting project has a number of surprising elements, the power the car makes, just how fast and driveable the car is every day, the unusual but enjoyable VR6 engine sound and the age of our client who wanted this work done…he is a retired gentleman, let’s put it that way!
We were tasked with fitting a Rotrex supercharger to this Audi TT 3.2V6. There is no specific kit to fit this car so we custom designed and built the whole thing.
Take a look through the pictures further down to give you an idea what we did.
Next on the cards is a clutch upgrade for the DSG transmission.
