Most petrolheads are obsessed with car tuning thanks to media and video games playing a large role to link coolness of oneself with bling factor.

Introduction


Most petrolheads are no doubt familiar with aftermarket tuning kits. I believe most of us were exposed to auto-nip/tuck early in our adolescence courtesy of games like Need For Speed: Underground, (any old school NFS for that matter) or movies like Redline, Fast and Furious, etc.
For those more inclined to television, the world of automotive aftermarket tuning must have been from the hit MTV show 'Pimp My Ride' featuring well renowned aftermarket tuners, West Coast Customs.

If the tuning company sounds a tad too familiar, you might have read about their latest creation in collaboration with Kia motors.

Vehicle modification in Singapore

Fong Kim is the place to visit to 'modify' your ride that are approved for LTA rules
Custom 'blinged out' rides featured in movies or the games mentioned above are mostly illegal here. Especially components like noisy exhausts, neon lights and NOS systems. While modification of vehicles is legal, the extent to which you can modify your car is rather limited. 

But, wouldn't it be great if a local aftermarket company provides services that are LTA approved?

Company Introduction

Fong Kim Exhaust System Pte Ltd is one of the oldest & most experienced after tuning and vehicle maintenance workshops you can find on our island. The company started as an ordinary car workshop by two brothers back in 1978 and has been handed over to the next generation.

Since then they have catered to problems associated with vehicle exhausts and suspension systems including exhaust problems for LTA inspections - a rather helpful and novel service for some who prefers crossing the causeway for other alternatives and more affordable means of customisation.

The one and only

You can be assured there is only one true blue Fong Kim Exhaust System Pte Ltd - operating from two workshops in Singapore
The rich and long history has enabled Fong Kim to lead as the exhaust specialists and one of the famous and widely visited workshops in Singapore. Adding on to the honour, Fong Kim also boasts in having the most experienced & skilled mechanics in its workshops besides having knowledgeable sales personnel.

Fong Kim registered as a private limited and GST-registered company in 2010. That same year, Fong Kim registered its company with the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) – a legal board under the Ministry of Law.

LTA's take on exhaust modification

Exhaust modifications in Singapore is allowed with approval from LTA.

The exhaust system is made up of exhaust manifold, catalytic converter and muffler. Prior to LTA’s approval, the following should be submitted for evaluation:

a) Certification from the product manufacturer stating that the proposed aftermarket exhaust system is suitable for the make and model of the vehicle.

b) Certifications or test reports from LTA/NEA recognised test laboratories to show that the aftermarket exhaust system when fitted to the vehicle on a per make and model basis complies with prevailing exhaust emission standards.
