Announcements

Over the last couple years the priorities in my life have changed. Had Matrix Garage grown big enough to hire enough employees and leave them to running it while I pursued other things I would have happily taken that route but it has generally stayed just big enough to keep me working overtime. 
I have decided to start focusing my carreer and passions elsewhere and that means that supporting the AW, AE, 4A and related communities has had to be moved much lower on the priority list. I have decided to keep the store up to provide parts that only we offer, or other things that are hard to come by elsewhere. You will notice many big name, readily available products have been taken down and we will continue to do so. It's just not worth our time trying to compete with the big corporations selling at cutthroat prices and it just takes up more of my time. 
I will try to keep providing those parts that we make or that we have developed and sell as a service to the community but understand that now this is something I do in my spare time because I don't want to leave people hanging. 
I try to make shipments and process orders at least twice a week. If you want Amazon next day shipping buy from Amazon. I will do my best to keep order time and customer service at a reasonable level but have some understanding. I am not making money on this and it takes away from my other work and other issues that are very important to me right now. 
I have always wanted to make our designs and other information open source and available to the community but to do so properly would take a lot of time making sure that models and drawings were complete, accurate, or properly described. To go through everything and make sure it was something that I felt comfortable releasing to the community. I would love to find someone who was willing to help me do this. Someone in engineering school or passionate about this to help go through 3D scans, CAD designs, and information to prepare it. If you are interested feel free to email me. 


 

 


 

We need parts and stuff for R&D.

Here I will keep an updated list of parts we are looking for for R&D.

 

AW11 suspension components.
I want to start developing a quality coilover kit for the AW11 that will utilize either Koni Yellows or another high quality off the shelf shock.

I need front and rear MK1a and MK1b strut tubes along with any other suspension pieces I can get my hands on.
If you are interested in coilovers then hit me up especially if you have components that I can use to get dimensions from.

 

 

I want to get a full gasket set made for the silvertop and blacktop 20v.

I don't have the money to buy two complete OEM gasket sets right now though. If you have old gaskets that are dimensionally healthy or if you have any unused gaskets that you could send us that would be great. I am looking for any and all 20v gaskets.

 

 

I would love 20 valve heads. Even if they are damaged they will be very useful in studying combustion chambers, port design, valve design and so on. They would also be used for designing pistons so we can offer the most refined piston topography available.

Looking for both silvertop and blacktop heads.

 

Any bottom end components, rods, cranks, most especially pistons. Very interested in collecting all 4AGE pistons to study. Interested in aftermarket or OEM.

 

We are working on a very tight budget so any support is greatly appreciated. If something is worth it I will consider giving some money for it. I will pay shipping and I can also offer discounts on parts and services as some compensation.

Hit me up if you have anything that might help us develop new and better parts for the 4AGE.
