Tuning a Supercharged 427 ZO6 Corvette

This project was quite a tuning challenge. Supercharged Corvette 427 C6 ZO6 with headers and an automatic transmission. When this C6 came in to our shop it would barely start, would die, run soft at 20% rich and had most diagnostic trouble codes turned off including important safety codes. After our tuning it is emission friendly, crisp driving car at almost 700hp and all OBD2 codes are active and reporting. This car is a real beast now, lots of fun.

Porsche 996 911 Water Pump

We replaced the water pump and thermostat housing on this Porsche 996 as a preventative maintenance step @ 60,000 miles. It was very good that we did this because we found play in the impeller shaft. If not caught early the impeller will break and go into the engine's water passages.

Cold Dense Air from Water Meth Install

Darin D. was going to have us install water meth injection on his BMW 540 until he towed his boat with his 4.0L Nissan Frontier on a hot summer afternoon. He felt the engine loose power in comparison to how it was running in the cool morning tow. With the wheel and inner fender liner off you can see our custom frame mounted 250psi pump with cutoff solenoid installed. He is very happy with the Nissan now! He says Water Meth was like a "breath of fresh air."

A Rug For Your Truck

We just finished installing this BedRug in a 2011 Ford F250 Farm Truck. We really like the BedRugs here at Autobahn because they are soft which means they are easy on the knees and won't scratch your cargo. Pet friendly and are still priced similarly to spray in liners. Even though they are soft these bed rugs are still very rugged so there should be no worry about getting these things dirty.

505 HP No More

Today we tuned Darin G's totally stock 2008 LS7 Corvette ZO6 that has only 4,000 miles on it . Open road data analysis showed 500 stock hp. Final results on this stock ZO6 was 578hp at the flywheel from tuning only. We utilize real world tuning to accommodate the ethanol in our gas. Tuning in this manner allows us to see true results with air resistance, shifting, and part throttle as well as WOT. Our tuning is emissions legal in all 50 states but gives more power, better response, and all factory sensors are kept active to create a better more efficient and safer tune. Love these cars!

Yummy Sludge

This is why we use Redline Synthetic Oil in all of our oil change services. Notice the varnish build up on this GM V8 engine that only has 60,000 miles. It has had regular oil changes using lower quality conventional oils. Redline engine oil does not allow this varnish to build up as it is very stable under high thermal loads. BG MOA engine oil additive will also stop the build up of varnish caused by petroleum oils and synthetic blends.
