Excelerate Performance : The Shop Thread


Hey Acurazine

As many of you may know we have an online store, but many don't know we actually have a full service shop too!

Rather then making a new thread every time we install an exhaust or have something cool to show you guys, it seemed like a good idea to make a universal one.

In addition to projects we're working on, if you guys have any questions about the shop, or how we do it, feel free to leave them here!

Don't forget to check out the online store for all your performance needs!

The front of our shop as seen off Sycamore Rd, Branford Connecticut



This is unit 1 of our two unit shop.
Unit 1 is where the majority of our work is done, and where the majority of our time is spent!
When your car comes to us chances are it's going to get some air time on one of our 7 lifts. (6 of which are in unit 1)
We offer a comprehensive set of services including diagnosis, repair, scheduled maintenance, regular service, and high performance upgrades!



Here's another view of unit 1; you can see another lift that was hiding around the corner.



This is our 2nd unit. Here is where we use our arsenal of Hunter tools to keep you driving straight. This is where we hide the secret 7th lift,
Maybe even the 8th lift if you count the HawkEye Alignment Rack!



This is another view of the second unit.
We also use the second unit to flash software (you can see a long line of Volkswagen/Audi in for APR software), and store the cars at night.



Here's our shop foreman Jamie road force testing a set of HREs and their freshly mounted Continental Tires.

Feel free to stop by anytime, we're here Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm!

Kraftwerks S2000 Install



This tastefully modified Honda S2000 belonging to one of our local customers came in recently, and he was looking to take it to the next level.

Since it can be hard to squeeze power out of a naturally aspirated build the Kraftwerks supercharger kit seemed like the obvious answer to him!

Needless to say we got it on order, and got him on the calendar for install. Here's some pictures:



The car is a has a F22C1 with 40,000 miles, and here you can see it for the last time without without forced induction.



It was nice of Honda to leave so much room here for things like this. Boost is better after all, right?



Installing the Kraftwerks front mount intercooler (27 x 12 x 3 Inch) and it's a perfect fit! It's always nice when things go like they should.



The Rotrex C38-81 with the 90mm pulley hiding behind it.



And there you have it! The spacious engine bay is all filled in thanks to Kraftwerks.
This car is now putting down 415whp / 275 lbs-ft torque with the addition of it's new Skunk2 header.



Here it is all back together and waiting to be driven home! For those of you who are curious, it got more then just the supercharger its self. The kit also includes:

• Grams Performance 1,000cc/min. High Impedance Fuel Injectors w/ Plug-and-Play Connectors
• Grams Performance 265lph High Flow Fuel Pump
• Aluminum Intercooler Piping
• Oil Cooler – for supercharger
• High-Quality CNC-machined Brackets, Idler Pulley, and Tensioner
• Recirculating Bypass Valve

Check us out online, and our available Kraftwerks kits below!

Here's some pictures for a MK7 Golf R we got our hands on the other day...

This car came in for an APR intake, AWE Switchpath system with the 102mm chrome tips, a APR Stage 1 93 Octane High Torque ECU Flash, and an APR DSG remap.

Any of these make for a great first mod, but it only gets better when you match them up!



No appointments are necessary for software flashes, just call us a hour ahead and let us know you're coming!



Here you can see the 102mm chrome tips the AWE system has to offer, so shiny! The fit and finish of these pieces are truly great!



Here's a picture of the intake. APR's Carbonio adding a little bit of extra flare and power!

We're the north eastern distributor for APR, MSS, AWE, StopTech, Milltek, and many more!
For those of you who are on the German side, you can find our online store here: Excelerate's European Store - European Performance Specialist - Homepage

Feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions.

Happy modding!
