Starters and Ignition Repair For High-Performance Cars and Trucks

At Southern Automotive in South Boston our expert mechanics can handle the precision auto repairs high-performance drivers expect. Drivers in South Boston count on Southern Automotive to accurately reprogram automobile computers, outfit new cars and trucks with competition-grade ignition systems and upgrade starters for older muscle cars. Call today at 434-575-6800 to set up an appointment.

If you own a high-performance engine don't overlook a starter that struggles to turn over. The intense engine compression ratio of high-performance cars can burn out traditional OEM starters that are unable to get a car or truck pistons to move up and down fast enough. Adding a high torque starter and ignition system can add the extra cranking power a high-performance vehicle needs.

In addition, high-performance engines take up more space creating less room for the starter. High torque starters are lighter and smaller than an OEM starter to provide increased ground, oil pan, and header clearance. Turn over your engine reliably in the driveway or on the track and let Southern Automotive install a new high-amp battery and high-torque mini starter today.

If you are restoring an older muscle car, Southern Automotive can help you keep the power flowing by adding state of the art digital ignition controls, a performance distributor, and low-resistance ignition wires. Rely on the mechanics at Southern Automotive to revitalize your older car's starter and ignition system with a new wiring harness, distributor cap, rotor and spark plugs. Stop by our auto repair shop in South Boston and discuss your restoration today.

I called to get an oil change and it was cheaper than a local competitor that I had gone to, and they even inflated my tires that were a little low! I appreciate their great customer service!!

Had my old Mercedes to 3 other shops to get the brakes working and they could not find the problem. Southern had to order parts but had me stopping the next day at a reasonable cost for that car. I need to get back for a tune up.
