By freeing up so much space inside the bay, this allows the use of six individual throttle bodies for better response and airflow feeding each cylinder. Better cooling, better airflow, bigger turbos and much more performance.
In 2020 Abflug remains a prominent part of Japanese tuning culture with multiple divisions still in existence, allowing them to accommodate for many tuning needs just like the original goal in 1989. Abflug Stolz focuses on European cars including the VW Golf and Beetle, while Abflug Gallant is their premium division – specifically tailored toward high-end models such as the Ferrari 430, Nissan GTR and Porsche Turbo. Additionally, one of Uwabo’s first employees and long-standing friend – Isao Mizota – also runs his own tuning shop known as Revolfe which you can see featured on the BILSTEIN blog here.
The world has seen many changes in the past three decades, but in the quiet district of Gotemba it’s business as usual for Abflug, and we wish them all the success in their next three decades.
BILSTEIN would like to say thank you to Isao Mizota for arranging our visit with Abflug, and Andy Carey of 3836 Factory for his help and detailed history on Uwabo-san’s Porsche.
