Default Cam change

Can anyone tell me why a so called engine tuner specialist would drill two holes in the throttle body flap after a cam change

Yea ended having to scrap the car, it was my rallycross car to, spent so much money on it and they ruined the engine along with my trailer that they borrowed and because they didn't put it on correctly came of the back of their car and so did my saxo come of the trailer. Loads of other things wrong with the engine after they put it back in again. Wish I would of believed all the negative on very forum about them.

I did wonder why there was never any saxo' or 106's in there for a so called specialist in those cars. Cowboys nothing short feel sorry for anyone that goes there or buys a kit car now that they are building to sell

All I had done was pt52 cams put in and a set of forged pistons also a fuel regulator.

1st attempt installed cams andsmashed c2 head as apparently they did not know the pistons needed to be changed from standard to shortened. Probably because they didn't test the clearance manually they just installed them then started the car. They did replace my head with a 106 head they had sitting on the shelf. Again did the same thing,, so they told me they had found out about the piston thing and decided to change the pistons and the car never ran right again. I was quoted 2 k minimum to sort, which is my new race car next year so decided enough was enough. Other things found wrong at this point.

Bottom alternator bolt sticking out and hitting idle pulley, now damaged
Timing belt rubbing on inside of cover severely damaged, belt changed by them.

Knock sensor not connected I believe this earths the ECU.??????

Lambda sensor not connected does this not control the idle.....

I only drive and can only go by others but they had the for 3 weeks and could not resolve and the cowboy drilling of holes sums them up. I am also still waiting for the email of the owner confirming they are going to pay up for the damage they caused to my trailer which he said was forth coming.

So obviously you were one of the lucky ones with your engine, can I ask what mods you got them to do on it please

I was speaking to them when I had my saxo about getting them to do some work for me, I'm glad I never now!

Hope you get it resolved soon buddy!

I had a rebuild on mine, it was a jp4 engine though with j4 cams etc, but this is about 2 years ago or so

If knock sensor isn't plugged in, do it now, as unplugged can cause rough running and bad idle/misfire

Depends what lambda, pre or post?

Crap about the damage, hope you get what you deserve for what they've made possible out of a simple job
