Berk Technology Competes in Eurotuner GP!

January 10, 2011

Check out the latest issue of Eurotuner Magazine to see the results of the 2010 Eurotuner GPBerk Technology brought out our 2008 BMW 135i time attack car to compete in the battle that pits the top European tuner shops head to head in a dyno competition, drag race, and time attack.

We knew we were going to be out-gunned in the drag race and dyno competitions with our mild yet bulletproof GIAC tune and bolt on mods, but what we really wanted to do well at was the time attack.  Pick up the latest issue of Eurotuner Magazine to see how we did, who won, who lost, and who caught on fire!

New Honda S2000 3″ Header Back Exhaust!

January 4, 2011

Berk Technology is proud to announce the official release of our new 3″ header-back exhaust system for the Honda S2000!

THE INTRO
We’ve been developing this exhaust for some time now and I think it’s about time to spill the beans. There are a TON of exhausts on the market today but this one has many design features that has not been seen in one complete package. We’re proud to introduce the Berk Technology 3″ Single exit exhaust for the performance minded enthusiast. Don’t be scared by the size baby, let me explain…..

THE MYTH
You still hear people talk about the need for backpressure in exhaust threads and to this day many people spread wrong information on the subject. The internet myth that “some back pressure is good” still persists. Let me just kill it now, back pressure is never good and any motor will perform best with zero back pressure. The myth confuses back pressure with velocity (exhaust gas speed) and in our case we are lucky that Honda makes one of the best flowing cylinder heads in the world, bar none. When you mate an exhaust system up with lots of flow capacity without any kinks, flanges, or resonators to deal with you end up with the best of both worlds. The lowest backpressure possible while maintaining exhaust gas velocity for low to midrange RPM performance. This all translates to power production from down low all they way up to redline.

THE TRUTH
Enter the Berk Technology 3″ Single for the S2000. We designed this to be as light as possible, with a slightly understated look, and most importantly to make POWER everywhere. We utilized a header back design to minimize the extra weight and complexity from extra flanged connections. The efficient layout also allowed us to make the exhaust as straight as possible to keep velocity up for better all around performance in any RPM range. We use a V-band connection and a single bomb proof Clampco clamp that has never failed us in our 6 years of turbo system development and manufacturing. The design of this system keeps weight to a minimum, shaving off almost 1/2 of the weight of the stock system.

Our muffler is a true straight through 3″ muffler with a proper perforated core that does will not slow down the flow of exhaust gas while still offering an excellent amount of sound attenuation without too much harness. This definitely isn’t what I would call a quiet exhaust but it is quieter than some of the already available 70mm exhausts on the market.

THE SMOG NAZIS?
Need to stay SMOG legal? We have full custom fabrication in-house and can add a high flow cat to your exhaust. It doesn’t have to be as fancy as the quick release V-band HFC/TP option I have shown at the bottom of the post but it gives you an idea of what you can do.

THE SPECS
•3″ Single exit exhaust (76.2mm)
•4″ Straight cut tip
•Header back, meaning the “test pipe” or “High Flow Cat/HFC” is an integral part of the exhaust
•Built in CEL fix is included with the non-catted or high flow catted option
•Single V-Band connection that uses zero gaskets and is quick release with only one nut to remove.
•Extra support hanger is included. Prevents “wobbling” of the exhaust.
•OPTIONAL: High flow cat option with or without quick release V-band connections.
INQUIRE FOR THE QUICK RELEASE V-BAND SETUP THAT IS SHOWN IN THE PICS BELOW. THE HFC OPTION WE OFFER ON THE WEBSITE IS A NON-REMOVABLE SETUP!
