Im pleased to announce that garageREG can finally offer this service to people in the uk, its been a long road and alot of r&d but the machine is now dialed in after a few issues with a coolant pump.
this service is not a miracle cure for damaged housing, merely a refresh of the existing surface
have recently built two motors, one with brand new oem and the other with our resurfaced housings and compression when tested at the same intervals was equal to the new oem housings which i wasnt expecting
points to remember before typing!
our service DOES
• refinishes surfaces of housings that are worn (mirror shiny) to almost oem finish = better compression
• takes away MINOR marks and LIGHT scoring
• remove chatter marks
our service DOES NOT
• repair flaked chrome
• deep gouges caused by apex seal damage after det
• cracks around spark plug openings caused by heat/high boost and poor tuning
we are currently working on the spot chrome repair for gouges that are not all the way into the aluminium
so, some pics
feed chick\'s 600hp half bridge motor that dropped a plug electrode at wot (see light score by exhaust port) and by leading plug hole, not to mention a prev oiling issue that put heavy wear on the whole housings during dyno tuning and using "bendy" seals we had to make do with at the time due to stock of our preferred seal being non existent , i feel this is a very good example
first pass of the machine
please excuse the light, i have a glass roof on my factory and pictures are very hard to take, i hope you get the idea.
this service is available through me directly or from my bum buddies
there will be a cleaning charge of £20 per housing if they turn up to me oily and dirty before they go on the cnc so soak them in some fuel for a day and give them a scrub
additional soda blasting of the exterior can also be done for £35 per housing to make them look like new
price for the re-finishing is £125 per housing and pictures of housings would be needed prior to the work being undertaken to save dissapointment
