Say hello to summer! Things are heating up, both outside and in our Turbo BMWs. Kenny has a BMW 335i E92 Coupe that he has built mainly for carving the canyons with his close friends. We helped him today with the Walnut Shell Blasting service to clean up his Intake Valves and make them brand new. In addition, with summer hurting power and causing timing drops he has opted to go for a Mishimoto Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC). We got this unit for him in a stealth black anodized finish and installed it for him. He is ready to go for summer and no longer has to worry about heat soak (until he begins tracking the car haha!). Look forward to working with Kenny and his project moving forward; he’s very easy to work with and a young entrepreneur.

Cordaro's 2008 BMW 135i Coupe being Walnut Shell Blasted! (July 7th, 2015)

It’s always nice meeting new faces. We met a new customer named Cordaro, who just picked up his 2008 BMW 135i E82 Coupe all the way from Florida! The car is all stock, but he has big plans for the car and will surely turn it into a street monster. He is planning to perform a variety of maintenance services to bring the car up to speed and so it has a baseline of service history. The owner plans to drive the car hard and wants to make sure the car is ready for all the abuse he can give it!

Another one bites the dust! Every week we perform anywhere from 3-5 of these services on BMW N54/N55 powered vehicles. This service makes the car much smoother through the RPM band, increases power output (hp/tq) as well as a nice boost in gas mileage. Feel free to reach out to us at (714) 485-9794 if your interested in making your Intake Valves so clean you can eat off of them.

Had Danyel come by with his 2007 BMW 335i E92 Coupe for the Walnut Shell Blasting service. His car is completely stock and unmodded, but hopefully that is going to change very soon!
