His friend was so impressed with the work done on it that he himself wanted his own 1995 Porsche 911 993 Carrera 2 Cabriolet to receive the very same treatment!

Velocity Factor Installs Big Turbo Upgrade and Dyno Tunes a 2011 MazdaSpeed 3

A previous customer with a Stage 2 upgrade along with methanol injection in his 2011 Mazda MazdaSpeed 3 was craving a bit more power for his daily commute, so he came to Velocity Factor to have a Garrett GT3076R big turbocharger kit on his vehicle. Installation was simple; literally a bolt-on process! Image

The vehicle was then temporarily reflashed on a Cobb AccessPORT Stage 2 OTS map setting to test driveability before being reflashed for a custom Cobb AccessPORT ProtuneImage

The car put down 346 wheel horsepower and 330 wheel torque on a mustang dyno! Impressive! While the car could have been tuned for more horsepower and torque, we kept driveability and reliability in mind for the client, considering that the engine is still running on stock internals.

Velocity Factor Installs Rear Subframe Bushings, VMR V710 Wheels, Tires, Shocks, Lowering Springs and Strut Bars on 2008 BMW 135i Coupe

One of our clients brought us his sharp 2008 BMW 135i Coupe for suspension upgrades as well as a new set of wheels and tires.The car was already retrofitted with aftermarket downpipes and a JB4 ECU reflash, but of course, more power means compromising the factory suspension components.

Image

A set of VMR V710 wheels and a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport High-Performance Summer Season tires were mounted and balanced before getting mounted back onto the hubs.

ImageImageFrom there, it was onto the suspension upgrades! The combination included Powerflex Rear Subframe Bushings, Bilstein Shocks, H&R Super Sport Lowering Springs and finally, H&R Front & Rear Strut Bars

Velocity Factor Installs Full Bolt-On Performance Modifications on 2011 Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan

What a unique build we had on our hands! We had a first-time client with a 2011 Saab 9-3 Aero Sedan who was new to the car scene and wanted a little more “go” for his daily commute. ImageAs with most turbocharged vehicles, the factory exhaust system can be extremely restrictive and should be the first component of the vehicle to be addressed. The car was given a custom fabricated 3″ stainless steel catback exhaust system and downpipe while the factory filter was replaced with a K&N unit for better filtration. The car was then later tuned with the appropriate software. ImageTo monitor boost pressure under load, Velocity Factor installed a Defi Racer Series Electronic Boost Gauge Kit. ImageThe oversized aftermarket front-mount intercooler was perhaps the most arduous task. This is because it’s to be placed directly between the factory air conditioning condenser and the factory radiator. Of course, no job is impossible for the Velocity Factor team. ImageFinally, the car was lowered on H&R Sport Lowering Springs for excellent handling and a dramatic lowered look for the Saab while avoiding compromise of the vehicle’s handling characteristics.
ImageWe greatly appreciate that the client allowed us to install aftermarket components for such a unique vehicle!

Velocity Factor Goes Stage 2 on a 2013 Audi Q5

A previous client of ours at Velocity Factor wanted a significant power upgrade for his 2013 Audi Q5 with a 272 horsepower 3.0L supercharged V6, so we recommended that he upgrade to APR TFSI Supercharger Pulley Upgrade along with Stage 2+ ECU Software Re-Flash.

Image

The client had an exhaust system as well as H&R wheel spacers and an air intake system ordered and installed at Velocity Factor.

Image

To install the pulley along with the belt included in the APR TFSI Supercharger Pulley Upgrade requires specific tools and other equipment that APR Tuning and authorized dealers (such as ourselves) have access to. Our knowledgeable and experienced mechanics removed the front nose with ease in order to gain access to the target area.

According to APR’s website, “The factory pulley is pressed on to the supercharger’s input shaft. It’s not possible to remove the factory pulley without damage, or damaging the supercharger itself unless special care and attention is taken. The APR Supercharger Pulley Installation Kit is designed to encapsulate the entire pulley and pull evenly across its entire surface. The unit is compact enough to not require complete removal of the front end of your vehicle, reducing labor time. Furthermore a provision was made to incorporate a 1/2 inch drive breaker bar which allows the entire assembly to be easily counter-held and ultimately makes the process a one man job.”

Image

From there, Velocity Factor reflashed the vehicle to a Stage 2 ECU Reflash upgrade.

Talk about a “sleeper” sedan!

Velocity Factor Built Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR vs Velocity Factor Built Subaru Impreza WRX STi

It was a really strange coincidence that two of our longtime clients randomly showed up with their high horsepower 4-cylinder turbocharged rally sedans, two of Velocity Factor’s most prized builds. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X GSR is making approximately 590 all-wheel horsepower via dynojet and is sporting Advan GT forged wheels while the rival Subaru Impreza WRX STi is pushing well over 300 all-wheel horsepower while sporting Volk Racing TE37 SL forged wheels. Both vehicles were built at Velocity Factor on-site.
