Classic Car Upgrades: Enhancing Aesthetics, Performance, and Safety

Engine and Transmission Upgrades

Engine swaps for increased power and efficiency

We understand that enhancing the power and efficiency of your classic car is crucial for a more enjoyable driving experience.

We are well-versed in performing engine swaps, allowing you to upgrade your vehicle’s original engine. As a result, you are rewarded with a modern, more powerful, and efficient power plant.

Engine ignition upgrades

Breaker-point ignition systems were used in most cars up through the early 1970s. These original points ignition systems were standard equipment on every engine from inline 4 to V12s back in the day.

This mechanical ignition system was simple and effective for the fuels and base timing used in that period.

Furthermore, the contact breaker points were prone to wearing, burning/arcing, and needing constant adjustment. Additionally, our team can assist you in choosing the best electronic distributor to suit your needs and budget.

Moreover, the efficiency of an electronic ignition means complete combustion, which in turn makes more power and efficiency.

Transmission upgrades for smoother shifting and performance

We offer transmission upgrades to improve your classic car’s drivability, providing smoother shifting and enhanced overall performance. Moreover, we can help you find the best solution to your specific needs with a tailored transmission package.

Suspension and Brake System Upgrades

Improved handling and ride quality

A well-functioning suspension system is vital for your classic car’s handling and comfort. For this reason, we recommend upgrades such as springs, shock absorbers, or anti-roll bars, to improve ride quality and handling.

Enhanced stopping power and safety

Safety is paramount when driving a classic car, and upgrading the brake system can significantly improve its stopping power. Moreover, we can install modern disc brakes and pads, as well as other components to improve your vehicle’s braking capabilities.
