Classic and Modern Engine Tuning services in Surrey

For classic and modern car engine tuning, you want to take your vehicle to someone who understands the vehicle and is local to you in Surrey. Here at Race Ltd, we offer engine tuning for classic cars and also for performance vehicles both for road and race use. All of our engines are rebuilt and machined to our tolerances, we can cater for full engine rebuilds to any specification you require. Our services include engine re-bores, cylinder head porting, performance camshafts, cylinder head refurbishment, piston upgrades, con-rod upgrades and crankshaft upgrades.

Tuning classic car engines

We use the latest equipment to check your car and see what changes can be made to help it run better or to remove those little problems that develop over time. We can run a series of diagnostic tests that assess the engine then make recommendations on what we find. This might include compression testing, valve clearance adjustments, distributor advance curve alterations, carburettor balancing and re-jetting. Once we have made those recommendations, we can carry out the work. We always aim to keep the vehicle true to its history but to add the adjustments needed to make it suitable for what you want it to do. As well as engine tuning, we offer engine and gearbox rebuilds and tyre fitting and balancing to ensure the car is in top condition.

Performance car tuning

As well as working on classic cars, we can also offer a range of engine tuning services for performance cars. Our services also include various upgrades to the vehicle, especially if you plan to take it to a track or race meeting. These include exhaust and cooling system upgrades, braking, fuel and suspension upgrades and even corner weighting and car setup. Finally, if you need some extra power, we have experience with fitting and tuning turbo, supercharger and nitrous oxide systems.

I took my Aston Martin in for a service and to get a rattle in the engine looked at. I have been to previous garages in... the past but all had failed to identify where the rattling was coming from. Thanks to the guys at RACE the engine sounds more beautiful than when I bought it and the rattle has completely gone! 10 out of 10 would highly recommend!!read more
