At Gerber Motorsports we consider performing regular servicing intervals on your Porsche model one of our primary objectives. With all Porsche & Bosch specialty tools, we follow factory guidelines. Nothing is overlooked during these routine visits. Only at Gerber Motorsports, can a performance problem be correctly diagnosed on our Factory Porsche PIWIS testers. Far too often issues are not correctly diagnosed as almost no other independent repair facilities have factory testers, despite claims.  Whether it is a major service or scheduled factory maintenance, Gerber Motorsports has all factory software and tools to complete the job in a timely and cost effective manner.

 

Scheduled Factory Maintenance @ 15K, 25K, 50K, and 75K are fully warranted and are even more comprehensive than Porsche specifies.

Oil/Filter Change- We pride ourselves on using ONLY Mobil 1 full synthetic oil as per Porsche recommendation or Porsche Classic Motor oil for 356, 901, 912, 911.  Be aware most shops do NOT use Mobil 1 full synthetic or for that matter any full synthetic oil thus answers the question as to “how can they do it so cheap?”

PORSCHE VEHICLE ALIGNMENT

Gerber Motorsports utilizes the Porsche factory Beissbarth ML Tech + 4 Wheel Digital Alignment system (2012) with special adapters to mount alignment heads without touching the lip of the wheel. By mounting in the center of the hub area, the Porsche specific mounts offer a virtually touch-less installation of the measuring equipment. The Beissbarth aligner is one of the most technologically advanced aligner, which is no surprise since Beissbarth has been manufacturing this equipment for over 100 years and aligns the 918/991 RSR/959.

This aligner is so precise and advanced it is also uses as a measuring device deigned for collision repair to pinpoint damaged areas. Whether your car set to factory specs and in need of alignment due to NYC roads or your cars specs are not of your liking Gerber Motorsports can help. We get asked often if alignment specs contribute to poor tire wear.  The answer is absolutely!

Our equipment and technical literature has many of the independents shops in Seattle sending their own personal cars to us for the most precise setup.  For our racing cliental, Gerber motorsports offers specialized packages including setting rake, adjusting ride height, corner weight and more.

PORSCHE ENGINE (TRANSAXLE)

Today Porsche builds more engine types than ever before.  Gone are the days for your “neighborhood” mechanic to posses the software, hardware, and literature to diagnose your current Porsche.  The new 991.2 Turbo charged engine lineup runs in conjunction with such a plethora of systems in is almost impossible to correct diagnose most any engine running condition with Porsche test materials and computers.  If you think it is expensive to hire a professional to diagnose a Porsche, hire an amateur.  Todays DFI (direct fuel injected) engines are extremely complex and require special Porsche procedure for proper diagnosis.

What’s more, you cannot provide hard numbers with respect to each part and if the change has brought about alleged improvement. Performance engine building without dynamometer development is akin to driving at night on a highway you’ve never traveled without a road map.  Please ask you service advisor about ECU mapping and configurations.
