Component testing saves you time and money

Improving the performance of your engine takes time and money and component testing can save you both.  At PLR Performance engines we have a range of the latest test equipment to locate cracks, check hardness and find stress faults before you go through machining processes.  By locating and assessing these issues we can advise if they are repairable and estimate the cost or if the component is not a viable repair.  No one wants to hear bad news but better to hear it before you spend money machining than after. 

Many faults can be successfully repaired and the component continue on with further machining and back into your car.  Testing early in the process also can avoid a major fault occurring on race day and nobody likes failing to finish.  We use up to date Sonic, Crack, Hardness and Pressure testers to ensure the integrity of your components and Surface Finish testers to check on the quality of the component surface.
