ABout Us

Custom Import Arts was founded aprox 20 years ago by pationated JDM car performance enthousiast  who fell in love with the Nissan 300zx. Passion and dedication where the basis for a company that grew into a specialised bespoke performance workshop that aims at quality and reliabilty while raising the performance bar in Belgium for close to 2 decades!
Tom Van Dyck studied Electromechanics and dedicated his passion to the art of engine building, transmission rebuilding and engine management callibration. On every endavour there was a new learning curve as he had to overcome the lack of local knowhow. Starting from an old back office, growing in a shed next to the house he expanded the company to an industrial area in Grobbendonk over a period of 20 years. 

Car Workshop

In Grobbendonk, Custom Import Arts is now equipped with 6 Car hoists, 500m² dual levelled workshop, this contains and electronics preparation area, welding and machining area and a preparation zone.
Our climate controlled workshop main room houses a variety of car hoists, toolboxes and a special 3000kg Automate roof/ceiling transport hoist to lift engines, gearboxes or even complete cars to any location through the workshop. This is a massive upgrade help as no traditional engine hoists are required, this makes things faster and safer.


For engine management calibration and software development there was invested in a Superflow SF880e Awd Chassis Dyno and a Superflow SF9200 Engine Dyno for purpose build performance engines. As an official calibrator and installer for Ecutek, Cobbtuning, Sct Performance, HPTuners, LinkEcu, Syvecs and many other high end brands a massive budget was spend over the years in these official software licenses to be able to deliver the best solutions for each project handled.
Our dyno installation is prepped with a separated underground exhaust extraction system and a high flow 170KM/h simulated air blower installation for optimal cooling.

Engine cleaning and building room

Our engine rooms are divided in two sections. The separated engine cleaning area and a designated engine clean room of 30m² is designed for building high quality engines and gearboxes in a clean environment. First is a parts dismantling and cleaning area, which houses a Torrent 500 Steamer cleaner and  15m2 tool benches for multiple jobs. The second area is a climate controlled separated closed engine clean room where we assemble and blueprint all gearbox and engine parts prior to installation.

solidworks DESIGN STUDIO

Several years ago another large investment was done towards design and development of custom inhouse created performance parts. A full-fledged Solidworks Pro Design hub and 3D printing room was built in order to commit to the custom needs of newer customer cars.  Since a few years we learned more about 3D design and integrated a Solidworks triple screen design studio with 3D rendering station for post animation of developed products. Combined with the 3D printer station we can created custom parts for most applications.

3D Printing lab

Our inhouse 3D printer studio alows us to create every part prior to final construction. From gears to piston designs from car batches up to interrior parts developement. Custom Import Arts is your one stop parts design studio for any race project.

Custom Import Arts is located in the Flemish or North part of Belgium, 1 min from the Exit 21 on the E313 Highway Antwerp-Hasselt. The company is on the end of an Industrial area in the village Grobbendonk and is well protected by law enforcement and securitas. Some GPS devices might be off for about 400m or 1/4 mile, just drive a lap around the block and you will easly find it as it is signed well on the street side.
