Enthusiast Essentials: the sound of power

4 December, 2016

If you’re after a quality muffler or resonator for your build, it’s hard to look past the range of AdrenalinR items manufactured right here in New Zealand. They’re made in-house from T304-grade stainless steel, so quality is assured, and they include patented spiral louvre baffles which disrupt and disperse sound waves, resulting in a lower decibel reading while increasing gas flow through the spiral scavenging effect. The resonators have a 4.5-inch body diameter, and can be made to a range of inlet sizes — from two-inch to 3.5-inch. Need to know more? For more information visit or call 06 870 3526.

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.

A company managing to achieve this is D A Panel beating Ltd, of Rangiora near Christchurch. Is your classic or custom car restoration stalled, or in need of a refresh, or perhaps you are looking for experts to rebuild that recent import project out of Europe or the ‘States?
