Fabspeed Exclusive: HJS Cats & Helical Valves

Posted

Are you using the best catalytic converters you can be? 

Fabspeed Motorsport is the exclusive HJS distributor for North America, including the United States (USA), Canada, and Mexico.


HJS is one of the most well-respected names in catalytic converters.

They are made in Germany and are designed to be durable enough to handle the rigors and abuse of running at top speed on the Autobahn. Fabspeed utilizes HJS cats due to their proven durability and unmatched performance.

One may choose to utilize cheap domestically-made catalytic converters to save money, but premature failure is very common once these cheaper cats are subjected to the abuse of high-horsepower cars and spirited driving.


Helical Technology High Performance Exhaust Cutout Valves

Helical Technology is the UK’s foremost producer of high specification engine control systems supplied to many of the world’s leading vehicle makers, manufacturing valves of the highest quality for some of the most technically advanced and difficult applications.

The actuator and valve designs are based on Helical’s extensive experience in high-volume automotive applications. Standard features are the robust pneumatic actuator, flat sealing faces inside the valve, stiffening ribs and high temperature bearings at both ends of the butterfly spindle.
