Ferrari F430 Exhaust Manifold Replacement

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014 by andy

Ferrari F430 Exhaust Manifold Replacement

This stunning very low mileage Ferrari F430 came to us with the common F430 manifold cracking issue.
Unfortunately due to the Ferrari F430 manifold design and heat shield, the Ferrari F430 exhaust manifold and headers cannot vent heat efficiently enough causing overheating the standard Ferrari F430 manifolds to crack. This results in loss of exhaust gasses. Not only will this give a false reading to the lambda sensors but it will leak highly poisonous fumes dangerously close to the cabin – far from ideal!

A quick phone call to a Ferrari main dealer will tell you just how expensive the genuine Ferrari F430 manifolds are purchase and with many other Ferrari Fi 430 owners complaining of the genuine replacements cracking yet again we decided the most suitable option would be the tubular design Ferrari F430 stainless steel setup from IPE. After inspection of the new aftermarket Ferrari F430 manifolds we can safely say these are very well built and compared to the genuine Ferrari F430 manifolds they really do look the part! Venting the heat away from these will not be a problem due to the Ferrari F430 open engine bay allowing efficient enough heat dissipation from the manifolds to have no negative effects compared to standard ones!


Stock Cracked Ferrari F430 Manifolds

This fix to the cracking Ferrari F430 manifolds looks the part too, it will increase gas flow, will stop the cracking problem and the complete kit is also cheaper than the genuine Ferrari F430 manifolds!

Fitting wise, these Ferrari F430 manifolds without the detrimental heat shield are slightly skinnier and therefore slot into place better. On the left hand bank the starter motor and air con pump was removed for easier access, otherwise apart from some very tight manifold bolts which with the bulky large standard manifold in the way made it a bit difficult to swing a spanner in the space.

Brake Upgrades and Stopping Power from Viezu

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 by andy


Brake Upgrades and Stopping Power from Viezu

The most overlooked tuning upgrade on cars is brakes. With a booming industry of power and bolt on upgrades the brakes are too often than not forgot about leaving the most important safety feature lacking in performance.

Brake upgrades come in many different forms from outright 2 piece monster 8 pot AP racing setups to a simple brake pad upgrade with everything in between for your budget and driving style.
Every car brakes will stop the standard car, but with increased power and even handling characteristics will the brakes stop you the second and even third time after one hard stop? Uprated brakes give a much better feel, bite and a much more consistent performance.

Brake setups explained

Brake pad upgrades – Brake pads shall increase bite and give a more constant bite as they get hot. Standard brake pads shall start to loose bite and feel with increased heat, however a simple set of uprated pads shall give continued performance until almost 50% more temperature than standard! We can match a set of pads to your needs ranging from if you need a good and improved bite from cold with an everyday driving pad, to a full race pad where outstanding performance is needed at very high temperatures.

Brake pad & uprated disc upgrades – Following from brake pads, a good set of matched uprated discs and pads is the optimum upgrade for both performance and cost. While uprated brake pads give an increased and consistent bite at high temperatures standard discs performance shall be falling and their life decreased. The solution to this is uprated brake discs. These are made harder, for pro-longed life, and with the drilled and grooved option cool themselves much more effectively therefore trying to keep the pads within their optimum working temperature.
Complete brake setup – This option completely bins your original cars brakes and uses 2 piece discs and an all new calliper and braided hoses.

This option is the most tailored to you with options on size, disc grooves, calliper piston amount, colour, massive pad option, and brand. 2 Piece discs uses a bell which the disc then bolts on to, this gives the brakes much better cooling and helps to stop the heat being transferred into the cars hub which can then break down the grease in your hub bearings. The calliper is lightweight and contains more pistons than standard callipers (parts of the calliper that apply force to brake) hence giving more of a bite and more clamping force.

This type of setup is available for almost any car and is the best option when braking must be at its best. This setup gives the most reliable stopping power with the most consistent performance. The manufactures that we use also supply the complete brake setups for the majority of World Rally, BTCC, Hill Climbing, Clubman, and even classic cars!

Today we had an Audi S4 in the workshop with a customer looking for a brake upgrade. The most suitable and cost effective setup for the driving style was a set of EBC Ultimax Drilled & Grooved discs with EBC Pads. Compared to the old standard discs they look the part and now improve every aspect of the braking, with an increased bite, and massively better performance when hot.

Marine boat tuning and remapping at Viezu

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014 by andy

Marine boat tuning and remapping at Viezu

Marine Tuning was somewhat unheard of until not long ago, now specialist software has allowed us here at Viezu access to Marine and boat engine Ecu software, resulting in tuning on a whole new level. In most cases our marine diesel engine tuning can result in power, performance and improved fuel economy too.

This type of passenger ship used 4 x 12 marine engines, each one boasting 1000bhp. Removing the Ecu’s for tuning from these massive engines was a challenge in itself due to the sheer size of them and the very small size of the engine room they were in (almost like a ship in a bottle).

The Marine Ecu’s were located in a water tight solid steel box which was bolted to the side of the engine. Removing the Ecu box was a difficult job due to the sheer weight of the container, the very small walkway next to the engine, hot, oily and difficult! It took two members of the Viezu team to remove the securing bolts for the lids, whilst supporting the Ecu multi-plugs.

Upon removing the boats Ecu’s water tight container and moving to our setup workstation in the ships conference room we started to dismantle the massive electrical control panel in which the Ecu’s were installed. We then opened the lid and prepared the ecu’s for tuning and remapping on the bench. You can see more on our Marine engine tuning and boat remapping here: http://www.viezu.com/marine-tuning

Once the software of the marine ecus was removed, the Viezu technicians had no problem in decoding the maps and setting them up for improved fuel economy and slightly improved power too. The new tuned marine software was stored and recorded back to the ecus of the boat. Once the tuning was completed the ecu’s were quickly reinstalled and before long the control boxes were back together and ready to be married back up to the engines for testing.

After a quick “Sea test” with an approximate 250bhp and 350ft-lb up on standard power and quite significantly more responsive engines the captain was very pleased with the ships new found performance and fuel economy. www.viezu.com

Golf R32 Tuning and Remapping at Viezu

Friday, August 8th, 2014 by andy

Golf R32 Tuning and Remapping at Viezu

The VW Golf R32 is the hot hatch of the VW Golf range, with a gusty 3.2 v6 VW Engine and 4 wheel drive straight out of the box, the VW Golf R32 is a really good drive due to a brilliant chassis, with plenty of potential for just a little more VW Golf R32 Tuning.


Full Exhaust Golf R32 and Manifolds

The owner of this lovely VW Golf R32 came to us originally for a full VW Golf R32 Milltek exhaust with a set of sports catalysts. Along with this the owner was looking for something to improve the all-round performance of their lovely VW Golf R32, therefore we focused on 3 main areas, braking, handling and power.

The power side was dealt with by means of a VW Golf R32 Milltek exhaust system with sports cats (stylistic convertors) and manifolds. Typically on VW Golf R32’s due to the amount of work to change the manifolds they are usually left as standard, however this car the owner was not cutting any corners and the VW Golf R32 exhaust was quickly fitted, completely transforming the sound the VW Golf R32 and the way it revs!


Golf R32 Manifolds

Hearing the sound the R32 now makes is definitely worth the work to change the manifolds, the inlet and exhaust gaskets were changed during this job as they were disturbed, and only genuine VW parts are suitable for use.

The next step was to fit a VW Golf R32 typhoon K&N air filter kit to the car, the quality and design of these kits allows them to fit perfectly, using the original sensors and breathers, unlike universal induction kits, This also included a heat shield that protects the cone filter from power sapping heat soak. The final step was to tune and remap the VW Golf R32 with Viezu’s full power map to work with the new and improved breathing modifications fitted. You can see more here http://www.viezu.com/Cars/Volkswagen/Golf/Petrol/GOLF5-3.2-VR6-24V-R32/View-details

The handling of this VW Golf R32 was reported to be lacking slightly, after close inspection the car was already using JOM suspension, which main use is for just lowering the car, however for this VW Golf R32 although lowered suspension was a must, the handling characteristics were in need of improving, therefore a full set of VW Golf R32 KW coilovers were purchased and fitted along with a set of VW Golf R32 pollybush top mounts to solve the common VW problem of them raising.

This item also allows the suspension to sit 10mm higher in the turrets, allowing the suspension to run more rebound, further adding to better handling characteristics. Once these beautiful set of VW Golf R32 coilovers were fitted they were adjusted with the car on the floor to ensure an even ride, then we worked close with the customer to setup the height and rebound to exactly his needs and specification.

The brakes were found to be a set of aftermarket “copy” brakes, these gave the peddle a very spongy feel and with a constant rubbing noise, a complete lack of confidence in stopping the car. A set of VW Golf R32 EBC ultimax discs and performance brake pads that were chosen to the customer’s exact driving style which once fitted and bedded in completely regained the customers confidence in the car.
