We check out the "free" Supershow.

4 & Rotary Promotions along with the Auckland City Council put on a free car show in Manukau City over Labour Weekend. Since it was free entry, how could we resist checking it out. We were pleased to see a few of our customer cars at the show along with a few interesting builds. More photo's of the show are on our free to view Facebook page.

Hytech Engines freshly rebuilt 2.0ltr 4G63 produced 450.4kw at all 4 wheels on a Dynapak Dyno. The engine had zero knock and zero vibration right throughout the rev range. Power was still climbing past the 450kw mark, but at this stage we are choosing reliability over total peak power so are not going any higher with HP until we happy with the cars reliability on the track. We have previously snapped driveshafts with less power.
The dynapak dyno calculated that the engine itself produced 742.9hp before calling it a day.

Austin 7 engine build.

We recently had to strip and clean a little Austin 7 engine to fit new rings. The engine was very smokey and burning lots of oil. Engine now back together and being fitted to car.
