After six months research and hunt for a graphics company I announce the launch of Custom Car Concepts consultation firm.

Our 1st. client owns a 2009 Shelby GT 500 with 560hp to the rear wheels looking for 600 or so. Traction was an issue so BMR lca's & Adj. panhard were installed. FRPP Throttle body & JLT cai were installed as well as American Racing chrome header's Dyno tuned in Corpus Christ,Tx. Photo's to follow. Here's the Logo. Wish us luck.Attached File  vlcsnap-2016-08-23-05h21m44s369.png   37.62KB   17 downloads

My business model is easy on me, as I setup the build by getting discounts on quality parts and have ASE certified tech's on call, even a gear specialist.

So you're the middle man. After someone goes through you for the first install and has the name of your tech or gear guy. How do you foresee them cutting you out and dealing with the specialists directly for likely less cost impacting your business model?

I realize this is a model for a "niche" or select group of enthusiast. I may not help build 10 cars a year,  but they will be done right the 1st. time in an orderly manner & timely.

Did you point that GT500 owner at the TCA020 lca's?  Did he get relo brackets too?

 

The poly boxed lca's get pretty snappy when you get to big power and torque numbers.

No, I recommended the poly boxed BMR units, I'll have a look st your suggestion. I just bought a 16 5.0 with line lock, track apps & 3.55:1 gear, I've sold my 3.7 .

I want to get the best CAI for my tuner, SCT & Lund or MPT tune. What you guys recommend? 1st. is a UPR catch can.Attached File  DSCN1190.JPG   152.35KB   13 downloads

So aren't you supposed to know the best of the best to pass on that knowledge to the cars you are building??????

Well,  I do know Van Collier and a few others, connections and research are very important. BMR was the company you cited, rod ends can be debated?

Oh, that rear view, American racing headers, off road 3" cat back to BMRP "bullets". Nitto tires.Attached File  DSCN1305.JPG   140.16KB   4 downloads
