The Gt86 you did with the red interior is still up to this date the most impressive Interior on any car I have ever seen.. just insane.

 

Some more photos of the Kuhl Racing painted engines:

UPDATE!
 
It's been a long time since we've updated this thread,
 
Recently had a customer bring in his newly acquired Aurora Flare Blue Black Edition for an inspection, and quick service shortly after he purchased it from East Coast.
 
Unfortunately, Even though the buyer had a PPI completed, there were a host of issues that weren't noted in the inspection...
 
IMG_6376Resized%20WM_zps38xkwsfj.jpg
 
 
Looks like someone's been running very rich..
 
IMG_6639Resized%20WM_zpsmiy2viht.jpg
 
 
First task was to inspect car. East Coast winters can be rough, and we spotted some serious rust on the flanges and main tubing of this exhaust:

IMG_6635Resized%20WM_zps9yupbxow.jpg
 
IMG_6632Resized%20WM_zps7tcuqyxv.jpg
 
 
Next most obvious thing was the heavily worn, cracked OEM rotors:
 
IMG_6378Resized%20WM_zpsc9il7nda.jpg
 
 
Ordered Alcon C-hooks immediately!!
 
 
Looks like the previous owner hit something quite hard to bend both lower grill brackets, as well as damage the front lip.
 
IMG_6648Resized%20WM_zpsdtnc654u.jpg
 
 
First thing we had to do was replace the worn-out set of tires on the car (uneven, cupped treads) with new Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
 
Just so everyone knows, Front: 285/35/20 & Rear: 305/30/20 fit perfectly on stock GT-R wheels.
 
IMG_4074Resized%20WM_zpsv9iyxt0b.jpg
 
Second thing was to address the fueling issue the new owner was having; the power abruptly cutting at WOT.
 
Found a few issues that needed to be addressed immediately:
 
IMG_6391Resized%20WM_zpsxvssxhrz.jpg
 
 
Ever wonder how a fuse gets itself to this point?
 
 
IMG_4078Resized%20WM_zpscvn5zpdj.jpg
 
We found what looks like an "attempt" to hard-wire the fuel pumps, with one of the wires worn bare and rubbing against the chassis (probably what was causing the fuse to nuke itself).
 
 
We're slowly working through all the issues on this car to get it back into fighting shape for our customer, its new owner. We'll have some forthcoming updates on the progress.
 
 
On a lighter note! We added this new little lounge area for anyone that visits   smile.png

He should look at the rusty exhaust as a good thing. Gives him a reason to get that sbd crap off there.

Hello Everyone!
 
Hope you all are having a solid week and finishing strong, Here are some updates at the shop!
 
The Line up outside this week
 
IMG_6445_zpszwpguxzm.jpg
 
IMG_6444_zpsayzaau53.jpg
 
 
A few more Overtake GT-R's inside being built, this is a great comparison of the gloss finish vs the matte finish :)
 
IMG_6440_zpszbftny4z.jpg
 
Bonus points if anyone can tell me what kind of exhaust is on the Gloss Overtake GT-R!
 
The Blue GTR we've been working on for our customer has some updates as well!
 
New rotors to replace the old cracked ones.
 
IMG_6437_zpsaesxqz0b.jpg
 
IMG_6443_zpsbkekkcgr.jpg
 
 
The fuel harness turned out to be quiet a bit worse then we expected and required more mending than expected
 
Here are some before shots.
 
IMG_7111_zpsjzkgcr94.jpg
 
After unraveling the harness and finding exposed wire and literally some of the worst wiring we've ever seen, we then set out to fix it.

Once the blue GT-R nears completion we will be taking it to get tuned and then installing a new Greddy exhaust and have more solid updates to post!

Yeah, after digging into it, we got a bit concerned thinking how this car has been driving around like that; one of the wires to the secondary pump shorted out so badly that it burned through the shielding, and melted the top of the connector slightly. At this point, recommended to the customer that he have us return the wiring to OEM and install a plug and play hard wire kit (he chose the Visconti PnP one).

Is it a replica Nismo kit? I'm not a fan of the way the back of the Nismo looks but I know others do like it so I'm sure it will sell.

LOL. Not at all. Both are real deal Nismos. Getting ready to do something very special with the black one.

Happy Holidays Everyone!


We recently had a few 17 GT-R's here for new exhaust installs aswell as Andy's DBA back here to resolve some issues and install his new Greddy exhaust.


Most of the shots were on the lift to note the differences in design between each of the three systems we installed.( Overtake 100-V, Greddy 90mm PE-R, Greddy Supreme-TI 94mm Titanium)

Andy's DBA received a Greddy Stainless 90mm to replace the existing unit.
