Have Zork Will Travel

I have had many e-mails and phone calls for information on the Zork Tubes and Mufflers that I am selling. With the blessings of Pelican I would like to elaborate on how this is being done.

For the past several years I have been playing around in my garage with various exhaust system designs. Only recently have I found a manufacturer who is as enthusiastic about the 911 as myself. That manufacturer is M&K. Ben and I have swapped ideas back and forth for some time. Our interests have become a very good fit as Ben has added turbocharging to his bag of skills and expertise.

My educational background is chemistry and my professional background is Quality Assurance, R&D, and Operations Management. Those skills will be utilized in our partnership. Ben has perfected his manufacturing process to consistently bring the best product quality and customer service. At over 400 N/A mufflers sold he has a proven track record.

Currently I am selling my 930 exhaust products at a steeply discounted price in order to get customer feedback. Once the products are validated they will become available here on Pelican. M&K is the manufacturer and I am responsible for customer service, regional sales, and development of the turbo line.

So there you have it.
I will post an introductory thread for the 930 mufflers as soon as I get my car back together for some really good pictures.

Thanks and happy boosting!

Congrats, Brian and Ben! After I get my 930, I'd be interested in some go fast goodies.

Brian,

You and Ben will surely be successful. The good will that you both have generated helping us newbies is greatly appreciated.

I think that in addition to the zork tubes and wastegate dump pipes, you might offer a J-pipe for the 3.2 Carreras. Also there is a market for stage one, stage two turbo kits as well. As a consumer, I would not mind paying a reasonable markup for components if it is all laid out for install.

Items that I would consider value-added for a stage one kit:

Oil supply fittings to supply oil to the turbo (T and banjo at the oil pressure switch, -4 an hose to turbo) (I think I can buy this direct from BAT for $90, but I would not mind paying $125 to have it pre-configured and receive product support from you)(Function7 Flanges?)

Oil drain plumbing from the turbo back to the engine.

Tubing from the turbo to engine compartment for Air Filter.

Tubing from Turbo to MAF with flange and appropriate connection point for BOV.

Adaptor required to install BEGI FPR. The port coming out of the throttle body needs a Y.

Signal line from the BOV to throttle body.

Boost gage signal line to boost gage in dash.

Back date heat parts.

You could also offer to mod the engine tin, taking the customers tin as a core and keeping one that is already modded in stock.

The various parts to install gauges in the cockpit: fuel pressure, exhaust gas temp, cylinder head temp, etc.

Of course, if I was getting all of these things from you, then I would probably also get the BOV and Wastegate too.

The other guys who have done turbo conversions have generously shared openly where to get all of this stuff. But there certainly is a value for one-stop shopping with product support and expertise.

Hope this helps!

here is the deal on that. I have made and stock most of the parts you requested in the turbo kits. the problem is/was that they were dismel sellers. maybe Brain and I will work together to mainstream them in the future. But if you need the pressure piping from the turbo to the AFM we already have the leg work done and they come with the tial BOV attached. We also have the oil feed lines as well and many of the other little fun parts needed. Hope that helps you conversion guys

Looks great!!!! I prefer the finish on yours to my Fabspeed! I'm not a lover of chrome on these engines.

Brian,

Did you send those out to get polished, or do it yourself?

Looking good Brian!!!!!!

I have done my part to spread the anticipation up here in the Great White North, and as soon as the muffler arrives, I will be spreading the joy........and the sound!!!!!!
It was a pleasure to deal with you, and I am anxiously looking forward to the goodies!

Mark

Mark - your muffler should be polished this weekend with any luck. I will contact you before shipping to see where you are at in the painting process. Thanks for the good word!

Ben ships the "raw" products to me and I do the satin polish myself. It is a tedious process of rough to smooth grits and polishes but very rewarding.
The chrome/mirror polish is done by a shop specializing in the high gloss finish. I should have one of those soon to add to the site.

I would like to mention that the polish and color will change on these stainless exhaust components as they heat cycle - just like they do on aircraft and motorcycles. The portion closest to the turbo will turn blue and the mid section will gain a gold tint.

Brian -

Can you post a picture of the Zork installed?
I need to see the hang-down/out distance and I'll bet others would too -

Sure. They were designed to tuck up as best possible.

The "out distance" was chosen to clear the bumper for you folks who blow big flames. I don't want to be liable for burning your car down, ha!

If big flames are not an issue for you I can cut down or angle cut the tip at no charge. Those with steep driveways may want an angle cut tip.
