Hey Guys - We opened Weapons Grade Performance in August of 2012, and we've been here for 3 years and going strong!  To help us celebrate our 3 year anniversary... we've put together a bunch of sales that reflect back on some of the highlights of our presence since the beginning by going through our old Instagram pics of @WGPerformance.  (which you can check out in its entirety here https://instagram.com/wgperformance/ if you don't have a smartphone)

 

 

The Our First Post was Also our Last Post Sale!

https://instagram.com/p/M-3fRUie9V/

 

Our first Instagram Picture was of our Akrapovic Exhaust from my first Alpha9 GTR.  We advertised our new status as Akrapovic Vendors... which apparently violated their MAP policy and they booted us without warning before we ever made a sale... I guess we got off to a rough start!  To celebrate... all exhausts purchased from us this month that aren't Akrapovics will get free shipping or free install at the shop!

 

The That Time We Were Using Colored Hardware Before It Was Cool Sale!

https://instagram.com/p/PC9b2OCe1B/

 

We take our Black and Gold seriously... and upgraded all of the front cover hardware to gold bolts before it was the cool thing to do.  To celebrate... Any longblocks built by us this month get free powdercoating and gold hardware upgrades!

 

The Apex Brakes Sale!

https://instagram.com/p/PSqL2yie8j/

 

One day I was siting in my garage staring at my first GTR and my 2011 Z06 Carbon thinking to myself... "hey... this caliper looks pretty similar... I wonder if I can swap these rotors...?"    A few weeks later and some inquires to CNC fabricators... and the best weight saving and performance value in the GT-R industry was born!   All Weapons Grade CCM Apex Brake Kits are $9000 shipped complete this month!

 

The That Time We Invented Mechanic View and Ruined the Profit Margins of all the FBO installers Sale!

https://instagram.com/p/Uw4rZLCe1A/

 

I thought it was a good idea one day to record a full bolt on install for "C.Y.A." purposes to show that we were doing high quality work... I posted it to the other forum and was quickly blasted by a bunch of shops in the private vendor area for ruining all of the secrets.  I posted more videos including those for full engine teardowns and rebuilds, banking on the idea that we would get name recognition and become a respected technical source on the forums.  Instead... we were banned for being "bad for the industry."  To celebrate our freedom of speech and to support all the DIYers out there who have benefited from our efforts with Mechanic view... All Full Bolt On Installs this month are at 50% off on labor. 

 

The That Time We Went from Stock to 1200whp in 48 Hours the weekend before TX2K13 Sale!

https://instagram.com/p/WnVZl4iewk/

 

We were installing REAL HKS1000 turbo kits and running low 9s on street tires with a tune we put together on the way to Texas before it was cool.  To celebrate our first racing event entry, we'll sell and install genuine HKS1000 kits all month long for a price so low I'm afraid to post it publicly... but the # has been mentioned by others on the site recently!

 

The That Time We Started Selling the Highest Quality Intercooler Available which led to a multipage thread of people saying It sucked until We kept beating others in actual testing Sale!

https://instagram.com/p/c-TO_niewJ/

 

All Driven Innovations Race Intercoolers are on sale for $4995 Shipped all month long with VanJen Clamps and 3" Intakes.

 

The That Time We Got Banned from GTRLife and FT86CLUB in the same week for Posting a Visconti Meme Sale!

https://instagram.com/p/dCRX0ACe4M/

 

Hey does everyone remember when this happened?  All Weapons Grade Flex Fuel Kits made with High Quality Metal Permanent Crimp Fittings are on Sale for $599 all Month Long. 

 

The That Time We Broke The Dyno Sale!

https://instagram.com/p/d6N69XCe4d/

 

I guess our "2000HP" rated Dyno was really only rated for 1200whp... We sheared the drive belt by making all the torques, which grenaded the FWD clutch and output shaft on our shop car... We've heard of some other people destroying their clutches recently and we feel your pain... so we'll  contribute 5% to any ShepTrans rebuilds of others work booked through us this month!

 

The That Time We Put Super99's on a GTR Before It Was Cool Sale!

https://instagram.com/p/lRJK3fieyJ/

 

TX2K14... A year before everyone and their uncle had a super99 on their GTR... We'll install these turbos with an ETS Forward Facing Kit on anyone's GTR this month for 50% off Labor on the whole job (engine, trans, supporting mods) Even though we think its crazy, excessive, and your car will probably break all the time like the one we put the first setup on!

 

That Time We Started E-Tuning for $1/WHP

https://instagram.com/p/3Zg770ie44/

 

All Custom tuning is $1/WHP all month... EcuTek ProKits are being sold for the lowest prices on the forums, as well as Cobb Accessports!

 

That Time We Starting HashTagging #1000whp Sale!

https://instagram.com/p/my64w3ie-d/

 

Any builds booked with us this month with a goal of #1000whp will get a $5000 Weapons Grade Shortblock (CP Pistons, Carrillo Rods, Fully Balanced and Blueprinted w/ ARP Mains) as well as all tuning and fluids for free!

 

 

Enjoy!
