Alignments in Calgary

Machine used for alignments in CalgaryOne of the most critical aspects of your vehicle’s lifespan and its performance in Calgary Alberta is its alignment. How your vehicle responds to road conditions, its cornering capabilities, or how long your tires last are all adversely affected by an improper alignment. Here at Haute AG we not only recognize this importance, but we are professionally trained and have the necessary equipment to give you the maximum life out of your tires and suspension components. We offer 4 wheel alignments for all major makes and models. We also do performance alignments in Calgary and specialize in Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, Audi, and Mini. Featuring a top of the line Hunter DSP600 Digital Imaging Aligner, we’ll get the job done right. We also provide you with a full before and after, color printout of your vehicles’ alignment angles.

Not to forget about your performance and aftermarket needs, Haute AG will be offering full custom alignments in Calgary for those looking to hit the track or just wanting a custom stance. We have a very long approach to our alignment rack, along with low profile ramps so we can fit the lowest of cars safely onto our machine. We understand the need and want of car enthusiasts to set they’re suspension geometry to whatever you like, and were happy to oblige. No longer will you be told by a shop they can “only set your vehicle to factory specification.” As long as you understand the handling and tire wear characteristics will be different afterward, we’re fine to provide whatever measurements you want! So, contact us today, and see how Haute AG can assist with your needs.

For those who have not heard of this process before, it may sound like an April Fools’ joke. However this is not only a very real, but extremely beneficial service you can and should, give your N54/N55 equipped BMW. Let’s take a closer look at what exactly is involved.

walnut

This is a picture taken from the intake ports of a motor with just under 100,000 kms on it. You can clearly see the deposits built up on the back of the valve. This can cause poor sealing, loss of compression, and in some cases even engine misfires.
In older generation cars the fuel injector was placed in the intake runner, before the valve. By injecting the fuel in this manner it doubled as a way to clean the back of the valves. With newer direct injection technology, the injector tip is now located inside of the cylinder, so this cleaning has to be taken care of in a different manner.

Media BlasterWalnut Blaster

Here at Haute AG, this is the system that we use to restore engine performance. We have a pressure pot that is fed with regulated compressed air. We then have a mildly abrasive media of crushed walnuts.The walnut shells are specifically chosen to remove the deposits without causing any damage to the cylinder head or valves. lastly we use a a shop vac to remove the media as soon as it is expelled from the gun. The process takes a few hours to complete, and the intake manifold gaskets are replaced after the service.

Our clients have reported immediate engine response improvement, along with performance gains throughout the RPM range. So, if you are experiencing lackluster performance out of your twin turbo BMW, or have more than 55,000 kms, give us a call today and let us show you the difference our Walnut Blasting service can make!walnut_blasting

Haute AG specializes in LS engine swaps in Calgary for any vehicle. We have performed LS engine swaps many times on vehicles such as the Inifniti G35, Lexus GS430, Nissan 240SX, and Porsche 996 to name a few. These engines can be swapped into virtually any desired vehicle. The result is a tremendous amount of power, reliability, and easy maintenance.

It’s really become the new “thing” to do in the automotive culture as of late, swapping the widely available Chevrolet V8 LS powerplant into anything that can contain an engine it seems. Sure there are the purists who scoff at the thought of putting a monstrous LS V8 into smaller and smaller chassis, but is it really as laughable as you may first think? Here’s a little food for thought before you immediately make up your mind.

LS Engine Swaps

The weight. This is the biggest thing that people always point fault at; how much a motor that produces the numbers it does must weigh. But, with so many different variations and choices of components, it’s not nearly as bad as one would expect at first glance. We typically find the motors are anywhere from 50-120 lbs heavier than most of the motors we are pulling out. The lower end of the spectrum would be an all aluminum block, the higher end of the spectrum would be an iron block outfitted with aluminum heads. However, these weight differences generally come with power output being anywhere from 50hp-250hp more.

Reliability and maintenance are also factors that have to be considered. The LS series of motors are extremely well versed in this area. With less physical mechanical parts in the engine, elimination of variable toothed gears and several chains, along with the use of a single camshaft in the block, these motors are ultra reliable due to less chance of mechanical failure. Add to that the robust way they are built and how efficiently they flow air internally, and you have a recipe for success. Being a motor that GM has improved on over the years, they are now able to prove complexity in a motor may not always be the most efficient, nor effective way.
Ls swaps are also becoming very mainstream in Motorsports, which is great for the “average” consumer these days. Teams and companies are testing, developing, and fine tuning mounting solutions, forced induction, along with drivetrain modifications in the form of adapter plates and custom clutch kits. This is hugely beneficial for the mainstream, as these parts make there way into general production. A huge contributor to this as of late has been the Formula Drift Series. It’s very commonplace for the drivers to have these V8 engines in everything from Import to European chassis’, and seeing 4 digit power numbers isn’t uncommon at that level of competition. Contact us today and let us show you how an LS series motor may very well change your perspective, and the performance of your car in a very drastic way!
