Porsche 914

In the shop this week: This sweet 1973 Porsche 914 1.7L. Our customer brought this In for some much needed maintenance and repair. The car was having issues starting and running rough. After discussing the symptoms with our customer, we knew right away that the ignition switch and ignition coil needed to be inspected tested. We tested the ignition coil with a multi meter and it was producing over four times the resistance it should have been on the terminals and plug wire terminal. We then pulled the ignition switch and sure enough, a big crack down the side. We replaced those with new plug wires, breather and vacuum hoses. Now this Porsche fires up on the first crank every time.

Air Suspension Refresh

Air Suspension Refresh – Evo X

Last night we finished a air suspension refresh for this customer’s previous air ride install. Although we did not do the initial install, we fixed many problems with the old install. We resealed and trimmed all the leaky air lines and fixtures. Then we cleaned up the routing. We also made a custom base for the components to mount to. We finished that off with some fresh carpet. Previously they were screwed directly to the vehicle’s spare tire well causing an excessive amount of vibration and noise. We also stripped the spray painted tank to bare metal, prepped and powder coated it in house with Super Durable Wet White powder. To finish it off we rotated the compressors so they would not come in contact with the false floor that was previously made. Over all the noise reduction was at a minimum 20db less. We believe it turned out looking much cleaner, safer and functional than it was before.
