1KR-FE SPECIALIST ENGINEERING
Technical interest in competition cylinder head & intakes, switch panels and fabricating
custom mounts & bracketry for bespoke installs.
I work in a number of design and fabrication mediums including CAD, 3D printing, resin casting & composites; with a capacity to outsource 3-axis CNC machining and world-class stainless fabrication.
We also offer gearbox conversions, manual window conversions, car setup, competition prep & consultancy...

Competition-prepared reconditioned cylinder head for a 'standard road car' class sprint engine - Here the old head casting has been mechanically cleaned and the casting flash removed from the ports, along with any sharp-edge protrusions in the machining around the valve seat area.
This encourages airflow to stay attached to the wall contours as it turns past the valve. The process addressed the imperfections left over from manufacturing to bring the port flow characteristics up to a more refined level of performance & reliability for the original design specification of the cylinder head.
Engine bay masked during an engine & subframe rebuild to tackle the surface rust which had begun to creep in around the spot welds.
Part of the design process for an intake I've been developing on the car. I wanted to conduct a CFD analysis of the intake/throttle body in various configurations to confirm some ideas before I committed to a design. In order to do this I functionally reconstructed the 1KR throttle body in the 3D software from physical measurements taken, to simulate airflow through the intake and form the basis for accurately modelling the components required. Once a working prototype was established, the printed components were surface finished and act as a pattern in the production of a mold - allowing us to cast the part from a variety of suitable materials like polyurethane resin. The CAD/3D printing process can also be used to design and economically produce tooling & molds for small composite (carbon fibre) parts.
