    • A preview of IND's newest Portfolio Project

      As I've said time and time again, IND's best asset are our amazing clients. Every day we have the privalage of encountering some of the most unique and driven people in the United States and internationally, and it is with the help of these individuals that we are able to build our Portfolio Projects.

      This newest Portfolio Project is no exception. The owner of the car is a true car enthusiast and appreciates not only European sports cars, but also their Japanese rivals. We have decided to embrace his enthusiasm for sports cars of every origin and are working to create an M3 that reflects this.

      IND is cooperating with the best manufacturers in Japan, and are importing some absolutely unique parts for the car. We have also worked with the best from Norway, ESS tuning, to give the car the power it needs to compete with itís rivals from Europe and Japan. Our first step, however, was to visit the fabricators at Fall Line Motorsports in our home city of Chicago to create a roll bar that is truly world-class. Here are the results:

        For the cage, right? The rest if their own, paintwork, interior work, carbon, etc.

        If it is not intended as protection against a roll over or a crash (that's what it says), then it is only for stiffening the car.
        In that case it is a bit bulky...
        Welds look clean though. And the suspention and braking looks promissing

        Fall Line puts that disclaimer on every single cage they make, including their competition cars. It's more a move to keep their lawyers happy than it is a statement on the functionality of the piece. Click here to enlarge

        We already installed an ESS VT2-600 kit.

        The customer really liked the naked blue girl and asked us if we would add it to the manifold as a joke LOL.

        Another treat from Kreisseig Japan rolled into IND's email inbox over the weekend. The photo of the completed exhaust system with the tips and valves installed was a welcome sight to all of us, as we have been waiting patiently for the system to be hand built in Kreisseig's facility.

        As we expected, the exhaust is an absolute work of art. The custom "trumpet tips" Kreisseig built for us are a beautiful addition, and the hand laid welds look like the best robotic welds.

        In this photo you can see the added exhaust valve, which means that this is a finished muffler. The valve actuator is welded to the exhaust as the very last step of production to ensure proper operation of the valve system. Each valve actuator is hand built in Kreisseig's facility in Japan, unlike many other companies that simply outsource that part. This ensures that Kreisseig's valve system is the most reliable available.

        Kreisseig is in a league of its own, if I could do it over again I would have their exhaust. The ability to switch from quit to loud at the push of a button is worth every penny IMO.
