RACE CAR PREPARATION / ENGINE BUILDING

Stephen prides himself in being involved in all aspects of the development of the Jedi and its Suzuki GSXR 1100 engines. Some of the in-house capabilities available to our customers include:

* Cylinder head development using an automated digital manometer flow bench and differential pitot velocity probes. Calibration traceable to PTS flow reference orifice plates.

* Multi-angle (and radius) valve seat cutting using a large range of Mira single point carbide form tools. Precision valve seat machining of ported motorcycle cylinder head.

* Customer heads developed to date include:

    Austin Healey Sprite 2A629 round port head (1.16" inlet valves - 38% flow increase),

    BMC 1275cc Mini (12G940 head with stock valves for street - 19% flow increase),

    Chrysler Hemi 265 (race), Chrysler Hemi 245 (on 265 race with epoxy contoured inlets - 18% flow increase),

    Ford Cortina GT500 (street),

    Honda CB350 twin (historic road race - improved 6 seconds lap time at ECR), Honda CBR600 F3 (race), Honda CBR1000RR (race,

    2010  holder of outright motorcycle lap record at Wakefield Park Raceway),

    Kawasaki KLR650 (big bore with oversize valves, giving 15% power increase), Kawasaki KZ900 (drag race), Kawasaki  KZ1000 (drag

    mods),

    Subaru kart KX21 (unrestricted race, with epoxy contoured inlets - improved 2 seconds per lap),

    Suzuki GSX750 (street), Suzuki GSXR1000 K6 (street, 175hp @ 11800 rpm), Suzuki GSXR1100 oil cooled (race), Suzuki GSXR1100W (Race - Stephen's race engines and holder of many NSW

* All cylinder heads flow tested, developed and ported by Stephen are provided with before/after flow graphs, and are optimised for airflow, velocity and velocity profile.

* Refacing of machinable engine valves. Back-cut machining of engine valves for improved flow performance.

* Custom machining of piston valve relief pockets using our Geezero piston vise (precise and reproducible!)

* Motorcycle gearbox building and modification. Undercutting of gear engagement dogs. TIG welding of second gear to input shaft of early GSX1100's.

* Open wheel race car chassis setup, including corner weighting and suspension geometry.

* Fabrication of components in resin reinforced fibre, steel or aluminium (wings included).
