Here at PSI, we are expanding the scope of manufacturers that we work on to include more German manufacturers.  These German makes that we cater to include Porsche, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz.

Currently, we are working on a 1990 Porsche 911 Carerra 2.  A client of ours recently purchased this vehicle.

Besides tuning with standalones EMS like Motec, Pectel, AEM, Haltech, and ViPec, PSI offers additional tuning solutions with HP Tuners, EFI Live, and DiabloSport.

These tuning solutions offer control over the stock ECU and are a gateway to recalibrate the stock ECU after the installation of performance adders.

Here at PSI we have been working on several custom fabrication projects.  Two of such projects include a spec roll cage for a Pro-Am drift car and a custom hood scoop.

Currently, Alex Laventure is working on the mounting points for the roll cage.  This cage is being built to drift spec.  A roll cage is a very important piece of safety equipment.  This roll cage will safely protect Andrew Coomes, of AJC Drift.  He will be using this car in during the 2010 drift season.

The hood scoop is being fabricated for a 2010 Shelby GT500.  The client approached us with this project because he felt that the hood needed a more aggressive look.  The GT500 puts out 540hp and 510 torque and the client wanted the car to reflect it.  Alex has shaped the scoop out of foam and will soon be fabricating it out of metal. 

Check back for more updates on both of these projects.  These are examples of just some of the custom fabricating that takes place at PSI.  Call or come in if there is something that you need fabricated and we will be happy to help with your project.

Recently, a local client procured a pristine example of an Acura NSX.  It is a black 2005 NSX with low mileage.  2005 was the last year that Honda made the NSX in preparation for development of its successor.  With its performance and reliability, the NSX is a great supercar.  The high level of performance and reliability is what attracted our client to this supercar. 

The NSX was delivered to us to perform basic maintenance and prepare it for delivery to the client.  The NSX received a much needed alignment.  While here, we put the NSX on the dyno to see the power of this Honda Supercar.

Dodge Ram SRT-10's are the Ram truck powered by a Viper V10.  Lately, there have been a few at PSI.

The ones that are being worked on are forced induction vehicles.  The stock Viper V10 was just not enough power.
