605hp Audi R8 v10

Yesterday we installed a stage two Unitronic tune on this 2011 Audi R8 v10. The stage two tune brings the power up to 605 horse power with 440 ft lbs of torque. To be able to do a stage two tune on this Audi, you must upgrade the exhaust. The tune is optimized to flow better with a more free flowing exhaust. It is also recommended to upgrade to a cold air filter. This will also compliment the exhaust upgrade which also allows for more free flowing air to enter into the engine.

The engine tune will also give the Audi better fuel milage at 1/4 throttle. Unitronic optimized this throttle range for when you are driving in stop and go traffic or driving with the cruise control on.

To make everything look aesthetically pleasing, the customer also installed the carbon fiber engine dress up kit. He also had the wheels painted black and tinted the windows and taillights.

If you are interested in doing this to your Audi, Volkswagen, Porsche or any other European car, please feel free to call us anytime at 425-254-0627. We are located one block south of the Branson Landing in Renton Washington. You can also Email us at meister@meister.us.com.

Dueling BMW X5

As we’ve said, we always get the same cars in twos. Last week it was two BMW X5 SUVs. The black BMW X5 was in for oil leak on the drain plug, brakes and brake fluid flush. The silver BMW X5 was in for misfiring. After a thorough inspection we found that most of the coil packs were failing.

Dueling BMW X5

BMW X5

The X5 is a mid-size luxury crossover produced by BMW. The first generation of the X5, with the chassis code E53, made its debut in 1999.

Repair

These platforms are known for their cooling system issues. Water pump, thermostat and coolant reservoirs are a common fail point. Next issues we see are oil leaks. Valve cover gaskets are very common and should be taken car of ASAP. If you don’t, you will have oil leak all over the engine which can break down seals, hoses and other engine components. Using the correct coolant is very important. If you don’t use the correct coolant, it could corrode everything in your cooling system.

Brake wear tends to be higher than other vehicles. We commonly do brakes on these platforms. Due to their weight, they tend to wear out rotors faster than other vehicles as well. Modern day rotors are made with a softer compound and the pads with slightly harder. This increases brake wear requiring you to replace all of the components when we do brake jobs.

The last thing we see a lot of is coil packs. They are notorious for coil packs failing. Bad coil packs will cause misfires and is very common.

Mercedes Benz SL500 Custom Work

Meister Werks European & Import in Renton, WA, one block south of The Renton Landing did some custom work last week. We worked on this Mercedes Benz SL500. The customer was leaving on a road trip and wanted to get a few things done before the trip.

We installed the customer’s new wheels and tires and lowering arms on the leveling sensors. This allows the car’s factory air suspension to measure the height lower and will set the car at a lower stance. After installing the leveling arms, we did a four-wheel alignment, which make the alignment centered to avoid any excessive wear that occurs after lowering the Mercedes.

We also installed an Ex-Lip Pro kit on the front bumper and side skirts. Quick detail and some tire shine helped the Mercedes Benz look brand new.

When we finished we performed at courtesy thirty-point inspection on the car. We found a few minor things the customer should be aware of. The more critical item was the brake fluid had a moisture content of +4%. The moisture content can never be above 2%, 0% is the best. We informed the customer that he really needed a flush the brake fluid to prevent any damage to the brake master cylinder or brake calipers. Moisture can break down the system, causing corrosion and make the brakes feel spongy.

Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet – Engine RebuildPorsche 911 Carrera 4S 996

Last week at Meister Werks European & Import in Renton, WA, next to The Renton Landing, we completed a engine rebuild on this Porsche 911 / 996 Carrera 4S. We pulled the engine out and found that bank 1 (cylinder 1, 2 & 4) have very low compression on 2 & 3, zero compression on cylinder 1. We knew right away the engine needed a rebuild. The block was stripped all the way down to the block and rebuilt with all new components. This also included new IMS bearings.

Next we had the heads remachined and all new valves installed. That followed by new head gaskets, timing chains and guides. New water pump and other key components were also replaced.

After the entire Porsche engine was finished we restored this engine back to it’s 2004 glory. This AWD Porsche flat 6. 3.6L boxer engine puts out 315 hp and 273 ft lbs tq.

We will also be breaking in the engine for the customer, which takes about 1000 miles. No red line and no excessive idling will be allowed until after the break in period is over. After that period, we will need to drain the break in oil / filter and replace it with fresh oil. After the break in period, the car can be driven normally or taken to the track for some hot laps.

If you need your Porsche serviced or engine rebuilt, give us a call for quotes. We can be reached at 425.254.0627 or email us at meister@meister.us.com

Ksport Kontrol Pro Coilovers


Ksport Kontrol Pro Fully Adjustable Coilover

Ksport Kontrol Pro Fully Adjustable Coilover Kits provide the ultimate in suspension technology for your vehicle, both on the street or at the track.  36 levels of damping adjustment allow fine tuning of the damper to suit both handling and comfort needs.  The damping adjustment alters compression and rebound simultaneously, for more effective and user-friendly setup changes.

Pillow ball top mounts

Pillow ball top mounts in the front and rear on some applications allow the vehicle to install and setup to OEM specifications.  Ksport’s patented upper pillow ball mount offers the same level of adjustability and performance, but allows for compliance that is often required from high-demand strut applications.
On applicable models, the pillowball upper mounts offer camber adjustment, saving the need for a special, separate camber kit.  For enthusiasts seeking the ultimate in adjustability, Ksport’s advanced upper pillow ball mount is available on some applications, giving the option for separate camber and caster adjustment.

Most applications utilize an adjustable lower mount, which means height adjustability without losing suspension travel—a problem found in many coilover systems available today.  Since mounts and most pieces in the coilover system are designed from 6061 billet aluminum, the components are lightweight, durable, and rust resistant.  Steel shock bodies are electroplated with zinc to resist rust and protect from the elements.  The shock or strut valving for each piece is matched accordingly to the spring rate, giving superior ride quality and reliability.

Monotube Design

The Ksport system uses a monotube design in which the oil and gas are separated within the cylinder. When compared to twin tube construction, the monotube design dissipates heat faster and more evenly, allows finer damping adjustments, and requires more expensive design process.  Aeration and cavitation issues are a lot less common in a monotube design, which results in a more consistent ride quality.

The Ksport Kontrol Pro Coilover system has been designed with professional road racing in mind, offering extremely high value and performance for any application.
