Looking ahead, witness the birth of a NEW brand under the HPA umbrella; COTY BUILT.
For all our Jeep TDI products, the COTY BUILT brand will be launching at SEMA. Check us out at booth #38239 in the "Trucks SUV and off-road" pavilion (south upper hall) or at www.COTYBUILT.com
We are moving!
After 10 years of building some of the fastest VW's in the world in Surrey, BC, we have outgrown our facility so it's time to move! We find ourselves heading back to our neighboring city of Langley where it all started over 22 years ago...
Our new headquarters will be located in an easily accessible area, close to Hwy #1, Hwy 76, and the Golden Ears Bridge at:
100 - 10185 199B Street, Langley BC V1M 3W9
We will be experiencing some down time with phone and internet on Wednesday, June 12th as our services are moved over to the new location, and with all hands busy with moving and setting up the new shop, there may be a delay in returning emails for a few days.
We look forward to touring you through our new facility in the coming months (either in person or virtually) but in the meantime, here are some of the improvements we are looking forward to:
- Nearly double in size, our in-house fabrication department will have better ergonomics and larger capacity to facilitate a more productive flow of materials resulting in faster turn around.
- The HPA Speed Shop will support 5 lifts with generous work spaces and an enhanced lab for our Superflow AWD chassis dyno with easier access for lowered vehicles.
- The warehouse layout will take advantage of the over height ceilings to be house more inventory and be more conducive to managing large inbound and outbound pallet shipments.
- Our new upscale showroom is designed to provide an entertaining area for clients to relax and enjoy featured project vehicles and a variety of multi media product displays.
- The close proximity of the office areas will result in improved channels of communication between sales, engineering, techs, and admin personnel.
We appreciate your patience as we navigate this transition over the next few weeks, and assure you that any minor disruptions we may encounter during this time will be eclipsed by the improved efficiencies we are building in at the new shop.
In the meantime, we are cleaning house and will be clearing out the heaps of take-off parts we have amassed over the past decade. Everything from factory engine parts, bumpers, seats, exhausts, brakes, etc... There are some real gems and unique items hiding amidst the racks of parts. We will be preparing a list of available items and hosting a couple of Garage Sales over the month of July. Keep posted for more details to follow!
Introducing the Emich VW / HPA Motorsports / 3 Zero 3 Motorsports World Challenge Team
HPA Motorsports is proud to be partnering with Emich VW and 3 Zero 3 Motorsports to field two VW Jetta GLI Touring Cars in the 2013 Pirelli World Challenge circuit.
After finding success last season, the team at HPA is motivated to stay involved with the World Challenge series as an important platform to continue fine tuning its 2.0L performance program trackside in this demanding competitive environment.
Introducing the HPA Quad Pack Exhaust for Golf R: The magnum opus of our fabrication team, this work of art is an uncompromising blend of performance and sound. Hand manufactured in house from T-304 Stainless Steel, the cat back system works in conjunction with HPA’s downpipe and midpipe to revolutionize the exhaust flow of the VW Golf R without sacrificing cabin comfort.
Three inch mandrel bent tubing leads to a four barrel muffler with bypass valve opening under WOT to allow the turbo to spin more freely and reduce backpressure. A direct fit with factory rear valence, the exhaust is available with standard polished tips for $1495 or add $100 for premium black tips.
Knowing the limitations on the IHI ( K03 ) turbo the TSI comes equipped with we sought out to upgrade the turbo while maintaining factory plumbing and lessen the install burden for shops and home mechanics alike.
The factory Borg Warner K04 turbo that is equipped on the Golf R / S3 is a much more robust turbo with a higher operational boost range, while still mounting on and integrating seamlessly with the stock compentry. We modify the OEM K04 compressor cover, to allow the factory K03 diverter valve to be installed in the OEM location via a CNC port adapter, saving the consumer from purchasing unnecessary plumbing and mounts to complete the installation.
