What would you like to see come out of PRT?
#1269373 - 06/29/06 05:31 PM

Loking for CEG's input on products and services to be released from PRT's shop for the CDW-27 crowd. I've got several products in mind and in the works that are listed below, but i'ld also love for you guys to supply me with any products you'ld like to see released.

Suspension:

-Boxed front 2-bolt LCA's with shperical bearings in place of the bushings

-Tubular forward and rear arms for the rear suspension

-Tubular and triangulated RSTB

-Upgraded rear subframes

-Spherical endlinks for front and rear swaybars

-Front LCA boxing plates for 2 and 4 bolt arms

-Harness bar, perhaps with a camera mount


Performance:

-Beyond-optimized y-pipe, steps are taken to go beyond the usual optimiation for maximum flow, will be flow tested.

-Optimized TB's

-Fiberglass heatshields

-Fiberglass pin-on hood and trunk

-Mandrel cat-back fabrication


Asthetics:

-Powder and ceramic coating at insanly good prices

-Fiberglass paintable tank(p/s,brake,overflow) and battery covers, i may also look into haveing them CF wraped

-Acid dipped badges, antenna bases, grill rings for painting

-Badgeless SVT stock mesh grill - still working on this, may or may not happen on a more than one scale.

-Molded\repaired Splitters - no job too big, you'll see what i mean soon enough

-Molded jack-point covers into skirts

-Molded gauge pod in place of coin tray

-Shaved front keyhole door handles

-Mirko skidplates

Services:

-Intake re-bilding

-Suspension swaps

-Header installs

....i've done most everything maintanance wise at least once.

tubular frt lower control arms with adjustable ball joints, and camber/caster adjustments for both 2 and 4 bolt designs (2 bolt will be easier obviosly, could use poly bushings or spherical links)

adjustable tie-rod ends to help eliminate bump steer for those that have extremly lowered their car.

frt strut tower braces that bolt to the towers and the firewall for added rigidity.

thats all i can think of for now.

Careful when you say that. With some of my recent ebay experiences... They might charge $250 for the engine/ AWD kit but then $3500 for shipping or something.

Not that Pole would do that. He's a straight up kinda guy.

A reasonable true dual catback tubing. We can add our own mufflers like truebndz does. That would be really good.

The tubular suspension components will be developed this winter while i build the shop's race SVT, don't expect to see anything production-wise till next summer on those pieces.

LCA Plates and Mirko Skid plates (all plasma cut) will be drawn and quoted within the next couple weeks.

I cannot do CF. however have several leads on places that can do CF wrapping.

1) testing begins next week on the air\oil seperator

2) filter brackets should come out in a week or two

3) end-links....not sure as of yet, i want to test them myself before i do anyhting farther

4) i'll start drawing up the skid plates next week and hopefully have something to show by the end of Sept.

I was just digging through some old threads, you should do a harness bar! Something like dion had.

I would rather see that than endlinks, since I can name 2 people who already make nice sets of those

didnt someone a LONG time ago produce or make custom traction bars of somesort? that'd be GREAT!

Stazi and Bradness

Edit: I dont know if Stazi's are spherical, but I believe they are at least beefier than stock.

Stazi makes spherical rear. I didn't know anyone makes front end links. But the new ones from ford are better than what came stock on the cars.

Oops! I didnt notice he said front too! AFAIK, no one makes the fronts.

Both Bradness and Stazi make rear endlinks, just to set the record straight.
