CyKlops Blog(some of our recent creations and customer interactions)
Vancouver Island sports one of the world's largest Mitsubishi Delica (RHD import) communities, and we could not think of a more fitting project to fulfill a need for a powerful cruiser/hauler/offroad vehicle. To refer to it as a "van" is pure injustice! We began by rescuing this 1998 L400 long wheelbase (LWB) 3.0L V6, which was in need of some frame-welding, brakes, suspension overhaul and provincial requirements. On went 20x8.5 VW 750 Velocity's (+30 0ffset), 255/45/20 Duelers, a 3.5" lift (2" spacers, rear HD springs, re-indexed torsion bars and longer shocks), adjustable panhard bar, dual exhaust and several other goodies. Driving it makes work fun! But there's more planned for this one in the future; a supercharger and subwoofers sit here waiting.
It's not often that we get to see let alone work on one of the fastest cars on the planet, an
Which comes first, the welder or the Cart?
A customer asked for a welding cart that could support a large inert gas cylinder, and have some extra storage room, and so we came up with this: We combined the weight capacity of a heavy-duty hand-truck with a TIG-welded aluminum tubing frame, and built a pair of nice thick platforms for bolting into, and added some heavy-duty casters. Now THAT's a cart!
It's a... SuperBeetle!
This 1979 SuperBeetle popped by for a few custom bits... breathe-right bits to be exact... a used K&N filter and we TIG'd up a custom intake to transition from 3" into the small square air-flow meter (AFM) opening. Not too much room to accomplish that, but it tucks in perfectly.
Then had a look at contributing factors to an oil leak issue... the oil "filter" on these cars is pretty much just a sieve, to catch big chunks of carbon etc... and they used unreliable gaskets for this filter setup. So we cut two 1/16th" teflon gaskets for it, changed the oil, bolted it back up and voila! Re-useable gaskets that will last forever. And no leaks!
CyKlops was founded in 1993 by Martin Johann Kloppers, combining skills, tools, and materials from the automotive mechanical and autobody fields (largely centered around his 1988 MKI.5 Toyota MR2) to create electric musical instruments such as the famous Cellotaur.
Conversely, music electronics and software courses lended to control and display innovations in the automotive realm, such as utilizing sound analysis of the IGT signal to derive an ultra-responsive and accurate RPM signal on which to base the most comprehensive control of the TVIS system yet produced for the 3sgte. In combination with good application of flow priciples, this resulted in the record spooling of a GT3082/3040 turbo on a 2.0L 3sgte engine, producing 200RWTQ at a mere 3490 RPM.
Continued studies of forced induction systems, and a particular fascination with intercooling, eventually lead to the writing of the Ultimate A2W Tips and Tricks Guide, which combined a systematic application of the thermodynamic principles and fluid dynamics to separate the facts from the myths in an industry often dominated by false advertising.
The Global Drums, the largest drums in Canada, were completed and debuted in 2013, consisting of TIG-welded all-aluminum frames which included recycled truck driveshafts. This continued outside-the-box thinking earned a "Courage to Innovate" Award nomination (Edmonton, AB, 2013).
CyKlops now makes it's home on beautiful Vancouver Island, Canada.

If you are not a part of the MR2 community and you are here to view other CyKlops products and services, you might wonder what the email address "3sgte" means, or even the domain "mk15.ca"... they are both designations for the Toyota MR2. "3sgte" is the 2.0L turbo engine found in 1991-1995 Toyota MKII MR2 (the Japanese market utilized these engines into the late 1990's) and Celicas. The earlier 1985-1989 MKI MR2's were outfitted with 1.6L naturally aspirated (4age) or supercharged (4a-gze) engines, and when a 3sgte engine is swapped into the earlier MKI cars, it is referred to in the MR2 community as an "MKI.5"... considered by most to be the ultimate iteration of a customized MR2 due to it's power-to-weight ratio whilst retaining it's nimble handling.
Many designs, ideas and inovations in our history have their roots intertwined with this one car, a relationship going back nearly twenty years, influencing all aspects of
