Velocity Factor – Porsche Boxter S Track Day Preparation – Updated

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

The Porsche Boxter S is a solid baseline for a track car. This is a car that can be used as both track car and daily driver. The S model of the 987 already comes from the factory with upgraded brakes and suspension components. We decided to focus our attention on  engine performance to improve the straight line speed of this Boxter. A big part of track days is also tires. You need the tires that can take you to the track and back. When possible we recommend on having a separate set of wheels and tires for track use. Taking this route will actually save you money down the road as you won’t need to replace tires as often. Racing on a track on a hot Florida day will wear your tires very quick. We installed a set of Hankook RS3 max performance summer tires. These tires are sticky! Better tires calls for more power. We installed a full exhaust system made by FVD. We selected the Brombacher line due to its reputation for quality, power and sound. This exhaust system includes the M&M Edition Sport Headers. We always recommend upgrading both the intake and the exhaust simultaneously. We matched a FabSpeed air intake with an IPD Plenum. The IPD Plenum includes a 911 GT3 throttle body for better response. To complete this install we uploaded our very own ecu tuning. This tuning was custom-made specifically for this build. It maximizes the new bolt-on parts on this particular Boxter S. We transformed this Boxter S from a fine German roadster into a precise track car. We greatly improved the performance of this Porsche without sacrificing every day use. Next  for this Boxter S is a Big Brake Kit. Braking power will be a match to the straight line speed of this Porsche. A solid investment for any track day enthusiast such as the owner of this Boxter S.

Update – We have now installed a StopTech Big Brake Kit on this Porsche Boxter S. The rotors of this kit are considerably larger in diameter and are slotted for efficient heat and gas extraction. This kit comes ready to install with all the hardware necessary including steel braided brake lines and high temperature brake pads. Unlike the factory calipers, the Stoptech calipers have six pistons for better brake force distribution and firmer brake pedal. These calipers are finished in gloss red paint and are simply a work of art. They look amazing behind the piano black wheels on this 987 Boxter S. Nothing inspires confidence at the track like a proper brake setup. Our client will be able to consistently brake harder and deeper lap after lap next time at the track. We have turned this Boxter S into a track weapon.

 

Velocity Factor – 2015 Honda Accord Touring with Eibach Springs and Caliper Magic – A reminder of how it all began

We started Velocity Factor on the foundations of being able to offer our services and expertise to every driver who wanted to improve their car’s performance with no distinction to the vehicle make or model. Through the years our success have allowed us to work on some of the most exotic and prestigious brands in the automotive world. Still, we never forget our core customers. Owners of every day import vehicles. We loved working on this 2015 Honda Accord Touring because it reminded us of our humble beginnings. This is not to take away from this impressive Japanese sedan. Like the Accord, we have also grown and have gotten better at what we do while still keeping the essence of where we come from.

For this  2015 Honda Accord Touring our goal was to enhance handling and visual appeal. Lowering springs tackle both simultaneously. We installed a set of Eibach Pro lowering springs. The lowered stance gives this Accord a more aggressive look to go along with improved handling. To ensure proper fit and performance, we performed our Professional Fender Roll Service. The owner of this Accord further enhanced the style of this car with our Caliper Magic service. The color selected by the owner creates a perfect contrast with the color of the car and the wheels. We were quite pleased with the results of this build. We are confident the owner feels the same way

Velocity Factor – Porsche Panamera Caliper Magic

Oftentimes the little things makes the biggest difference. Such is the case of this Porsche Panamera. The owner wanted to add individual style while still keeping it a Porsche at heart. At Velocity Factor it is our priority to ensure that the work done on any car is exactly what the customer envisioned. We suggested our Caliper Magic service as a way to enhance the visual appeal of this Panamera. Our Caliper Magic service recently became available to most makes and models. It is a precision service with results that meet and exceeds the quality of factory painted calipers. We opted for a traditional Carrera Red for this Panamera to create a contrast with the polished wheels and black paint of the car. The owner of this Panamera also wanted to improve the sound of his vehicle but still keep the factory looks and factory levels of refinement. We custom-built an exhaust system for this Panamera using the factory exhaust tips. We carefully selected a muffler design that improved sound, performance and does not generate drone at highway speeds. In all these simple things added value to this Panamera and renewed the driving enjoyment for its owner.

Velocity Factor – BMW M3 E92 with H & R Lowering Springs and Active Autowerke ECU tune

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Bratwurst and beer, Autobahn and high speeds, German racing drivers and world championships, BMW and H&R Springs. These are some of the best pairings to have come out of Germany. Some might even say that they all happened by design, not by coincidence. Regardless of how they came to be, the fact is that they work in perfect harmony when together. This E92 chassis M3 came to us with the owner looking to improve its handling and looks. The solution is simple but the results are pure magic. We installed a set of H&R Race Springs. These springs are an excellent choice to raise the handling limits of an M3 even further than factory levels. They help improve handling by lowering the center of gravity of the car. The lower ride height allows for sharper steering response and better control at high speeds. We also installed a set of H&R TRAK+ wheel spacers to increase track width at each axle for more stability. The wheel spacers selected for this M3 were 12mm in front and 15mm for the rear. The lower wider, stance improved the looks of this M3 substantially. The E92 M3 has never been short on horsepower but more of it is always better. To address this need we installed Active Autowerke M3 Performance Software. This software not only increases horsepower and torque but also improves engine smoothness.  At Velocity Factor we take BMW M cars seriously. We only use the highest quality parts from the most recognized aftermarket manufacturers worldwide. H&R has a reputation built on success in Motorsport. Their suspension components are specific to each BMW model and they simply work. Active Autowerke has been producing quality BMW performance parts since 1981. Their products are known for their durability and performance. Nothing but the best for BMW cars at Velocity Factor.

We are proud to announce our new business partnership with Carbon Fiber 500. Carbon Fiber 500 is a locally owned business dedicated to the design and manufacturing of body kits made of carbon fiber or fiberglass. We stared our new partnership on the right foot with the installation of a carbon fiber front lip on a 2015 Subaru WRX. Fit and finish of this front lip is second to none. All carbon fiber pieces are UV protected with the high quality gloss of clear coat. Installation only takes a few minutes but the benefits of this front lip will last for years. The improvement on the WRX is not only cosmetic, the frontal aerodynamics have improved as well. This WRX will be able to displace air more efficiently without any drag penalty. We just think it looks fantastic. Gives us a call if you’re interested in giving your WRX or STI the carbon fiber treatment. As an authorized dealer we also install these kits. Currently, we have kits for the Subaru WRX/STI and for the Corvette C7 Stingray and Z06. You don’t need wait anymore to get your carbon fiber from overseas.

Velocity Factor – 2015 Ford Mustang GT Improving on a Thoroughbred

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

 

We recently had the opportunity to work on a brand new 2015 Ford Mustang GT with the Performance Package. Ford did most of the work with this comprehensive performance package but there are always areas to improve. The owner’s wish was to enhance handling, engine power and sound. We installed a set of Eibach Pro Lowering Springs that gives the Mustang better control when cornering and does not affect the factory ride quality. These lowering springs are designed exclusively for the Mustang GT. At over 400 horsepower, the new Mustang GT  engine is far from underpowered. Still, a few more horses out of this pony car wouldn’t hurt. To assist at the front we installed a JLT Cold Air Intake. This air intake has a factory look to it and includes a heat shield to keep out all the hot air generated by the powerful 5.0 liter V8. Out in the back we installed a Roush performance exhaust system. Roush is a renowned name in the racing world with victories in NASCAR and the Continental Sport Car Challenge. Performance upgrades like an Air Intake and an Exhaust System can make a considerable difference on bigger engines like the 5.0 liter V8 in this Mustang.To better integrate their functionality, we uploaded a custom ECU tuning. This Mustang is no longer a Pony Ride. With the Velocity Factor touch, this Mustang is now a full blooded thoroughbred race horse. See you at the track.
