For the Fun of it January 15 2016

Cheers to Austin Popadics for the brilliant film that he put together when we partnered with our customers and Jim Ellis VW of Kennesaw to pull off a photoshoot and a film on the showroom floor of the dealership. Jim Ellis has also been supportive enough to be the first dealership to be the premiere service center installing our Mk6 2.0t reinforced oil pans. Check out the film and let us know what you think!

 


VR6 Reinforced Oil Pan Version 2 December 21 2015

We're happy to announce that we've finally listed our updated version 2 VR6 reinforced oil pan. We're especially happy about the additionally reinforcement coverage shielding the drain plug as well as the vented creasing on the steel plate to allow it to more closely follow the contours of the OEM pan shape. As always, we stand behind our product with a lifetime warranty. Our reinforced oil pans far exceed the inaccurate claims of street shields and skid plates that can actually do more damage to your pan and create catastrophic failure in your engine by hiding the damage until its too late. We can't wait to start getting these out to our customers!


Mk6 2.0T Reinforced Oil Pan Version 2 December 21 2015

We'd like to introduced our revised listing of our version 2 reinforced 2.0T oil pan. Updating from version 1, we've expanded the reinforcement area to cover the entire bottom face of the pan and not just the lowest point on the pan. The welds are stronger and the plate includes vented crease points to allow the reinforcement steel plate to follow the contours of the oil pan. No need for cheap knock-off aluminum "reinforced" oil pans that are weaker than the OEM units or useless "street shields" that simply reduce your ground clearance on your slammed car as well as adding more hidden damage to your oil pan when they flex from impact. We stand behind our product with a lifetime warranty and a level of functional quality that far exceeds any other pan in the industry. 


VR Reinforced Oil Pan v. 2 December 02 2015

So we've been working with some new ideas and started putting together an update for our VR6 reinforced oil pan. We're happy to introduce the first two to come fresh out of powder coating with added ducting to mitigate any liquid that might cause rust, better shielding, and even a reinforced shielding for the drain plug section! We're super excited about this! Adjusted pricing coming soon!

Never Satisfied November 15 2015

We've had an opportunity to really take the feedback from one of our customers seriously enough for us to continue the development of our 3-point lower rear brace and continue revising. We're glad Jeff was able to give us some invaluable insight on ways we could integrate some quality control into our fabricated products to give it a little more polish you guys will love! Stay tuned as we get updated content to show you what we're doing!

Taking Back to Our Roots October 30 2015

So with the listing of our Mk6 reinforced oil pan, we've gotten back to the foundation of what runs our business, the protection of your oil circulation system. A lot of you already know that we've got reinforced, shortened, and full steel oil pans for a variety of VWs from Mk3 to Mk6. Now we're working on adapting some additional components to work in concert with our oil coolers that will help keep your engine from oil starvation, protect your bottom end, and get you a little more responsiveness out of your engine for the occasion or frequent hard driving. Stay tuned guys!

Mk6 Reinforced Oil Pan October 20 2015

After almost a month of testing and driving around installed in a bagged test car, our Mk6 reinforced oil pan is finally LIVE on our website! We feel that this is going to be a hot seller since it fits all Mk6 2.0T motors. We're talking GTIs, Golfs, Jettas, and Passat CCs if not more! Check out our Mk6 section and order one if you plan on riding slammed!


Tier 1 and Tier 2 Shifter Solution Kits October 03 2015

So installation is almost finished with our test mk6 2.0t. After the bushings went in, we've decided to up the stakes and proceed with installing our Tier 2 SS Kit. Tier 2 simply consists of the Dieselgeek Sigma 6 short shifter. We're going to see what bushings get tossed and what stays with the Sigma 6 before we get our demo CC ready for road testing. 

Bundles and Packages Research September 24 2015

Great things coming from Savage Chassis, where we are putting in overtime at the drawing board! First of all, we're neck-deep into measurements and development for our mk6 2.0t reinforced and baffled oil pan. Not only is this going to keep your oil pan from cracking on impact when your car is sitting exceptionally low but it'll also minimize the problem of oil being pulled to one side of the pan and starving your oil pump during hard cornering. 

We're also starting to put together our Tier 1 and Tier 2 Shifter Solution We're looking to make the Tier 1 Shifter Solution a bundle for the 42 Draft Design shifter bushings  for an upgrade in shifting precision and feel without having to sacrifice the shift length of the OEM shifter. Our Tier 2 Shifter Solution bundle will be simply adding a Sigma 6 Dieselgeek short shifter to the Tier 1 Solution bundle. 

After shifting solutions we're looking into brainstorming some engine solutions for the 2.0T Tsi motor for improved air flow.

These three changes are just a few examples of our main focus: Creating solutions that will help speed up the completion of your builds!
