Seattle Car Tuning Shop Gives Life To One Bad Corvette

Seattle Car Tuning Shop Gives Life To One Bad Corvette Level1tec, a leading Seattle tuning shop that also specializes in automotive customizing, recently had the opportunity to work on a classic Corvette that was in dire need of some help to get it in top condition again. The mechanics at our Corvette tuning shop put in long hours, but achieved results that have people all over the area talking. An overview of the work they performed is listed below.

The professionals at Level1tec were approached by a Corvette owner from the Spokane, Washington area in late October 2014 about the possibility of performing extensive work on the vehicle. Since Corvette performance tuning is something in which they specialize, the team eagerly agreed to take on the project. In less than two weeks, their work was finished, with the final results leaving car enthusiasts all over Northwest Washington amazed at what they had accomplished.

Custom Tuning

Mechanics at Level1tec went to work immediately to perform a full custom Corvette tuning, which is something they are very well known for doing. One of the problems with this particular Corvette was the fact that the O2 (oxygen) sensors were hitting the headers. This in turn can affect fuel injection performance and emissions. The vehicle also had bag plugs, which was caused by too much fuel. These were also replaced to increase engine efficiency and enhance performance.

Other Adjustments

Aside from a customized Corvette performance tuning, there were a number of other adjustments made to this vehicle as well. A major adjustment involved replacing the clutch reservoir and its hose in order to improve the carís braking ability. Mechanics discovered that a crimped line had caused the clutch not to disengage, but that replacing these parts resolved the problem. A heat barrier was also added to the underside of the Corvette. This was done in an effort to protect the carís brake lines as well as the valuable electronic components that were located there. The end result was a vehicle that not only looked incredible, but performed better than it had for years.

Owner Response

The owner of this Corvette was overwhelmed by the transformation of his automobile, and bragged about the quality of work performed by Level1tec mechanics on social media sites. Owner Travis Johnson remarked that he was very pleased because his vehicle ďfinally runs like it should.Ē He praised the team at Level1tec for their quality of workmanship, and proudly proclaimed that the drive from Spokane was well worth it. Johnson was apparently so impressed with the quality of work he received that he promised his Corvette would never be taken to another shop from that point forward.

The transformation of this classic Corvette helped to reinforce the reputation of Level1tec as a leading Corvette tuning shop in the Seattle, Washington area. While the owner was exceptionally pleased with the way his automobile was cared for, the mechanics at this shop feel the level of service they provided was something they strive to achieve with each and every customer.

Just like everything else one should expect from a high level performance shop, this blog is right on the money!!! As the owner of this car, I canít speak highly enough about the service and upfront communication provided to me as they discovered problems that were inhibiting the car ability to perform like it should. As this post does not include specifics about whatís under the hood, I can say that it took level1tec to bring it all together. Even after I got it home to Spokane they continued to demonstrate there support as they were asking for updates on the cars performance. With future upgrades in the plans when spring rolls around, I cannot wait to get the car back to them.

Anyone who has dealt with performance shops knows that it hard to find someone that will not only care for the performance but also understand that most of us put our heart and sole into our cars. When I went in to pick up my car, it was fully detailed inside and out. I knew when I seen it, before I even drove it, that this was the only place my Vette will ever be trusted to as they care for it as much, if not more, than I do!
