Talking Bilstein Coilovers with MTI Racing

MTI Racing in Marietta, GA is heading out to little Talladega raceway this weekend to continue testing on our Bilstein coilover kit for the Camaro. At MTI Racing we believe in strenuous track testing to bring strong proven parts to our customers.
I will post an update at the beginning of next week. I will include new pictures and lap times. Stock vs. MTI Bilsteins.

Jason, are the sway bars done yet?

Coilovers look good, looking forward to lap times....

MTI Racings Camaro hit the track again at little Talladega Sunday. Phase 1 of our Bilstein coilovers test went extremly well. We went from average 1:11 lap times with stock shocks to Sundays average of 1:07 lap times with the Bilstein coilovers. With the phase 1 tests our techs came up with more improvements that we are currently underway with in phase 2 of our Bilstein coilover tests.
We will be sure to keep everyone up to date on our tests and release date for the kit.

This set of MTI Racings Bilstein coilovers does not have a remote canister and are not adjustable. We are testing internal valving and spring rates at this phase. We do have plans to test with a remote canister shock and a fully adjustable shock in the later phases of our testing. So please be sure to stay tuned.

So what happened to the Bilstein's? Do we know if they are good on the Camaro or what? I had a Bilstein kit on my 2001 Audi A6 and I loved it.

Its the thing I see with Camaro's / Vettes, its sort of like German cars, where everyone runs H&R / KW / Bilstein, everyone here runs Pedders / Pfadt / a little bit of BC .

I myself was searching for some KW info here the other day and couldn't find much of anything past 2010 lol

[QUOTE=spyder;6038338]So what happened to the Bilstein's?

We have been using our Bilstein coilover system on our shop Camaro for some time now with fantastic results. We have done a ton of track events are have been very happy with the performance. We all know the Camaro is a big heavy car and when thrown into a turn tends to have a lot of body roll, with the addition of the coilovers and swaybars it completely changes the handling of the car for the better. The Bilsteins are specially valved for the 5th Gen Camaro and work fantastic. Let me know if you have any questions about the MTI Racing 5th Gen Camaro coilover system.

We are using the ASN on the rear and a custom MTI Racing strut housing with a Bilstein strut cartridge. Our coilover's were also designed to utilize standard lowering springs (Eibach, Pfadt, MTI Racing). If you have lowering springs on your Camaro already we can use them with our coilover system.

I've owned many Volvos and Bilsteins were the goto mod for suspension. Outstanding quality, hope that translates to these as well!
