TONS of details to assist in increasing power & longevity that are often ignored / or overlooked, keeping "unscheduled disassembly's" to a minimum.

Our December workshop was fantastic! Wanted to thank the folks from the Dallas, Lufkin, Houston & the Beaumont areas that attended! Remember that we only do this during the "off season" so reserve your seat for the January workshops asap.

Thought for the day: An engine is a system. Beware of the "Rule of One". There is no such thing as just one change that does not affect something else. Few single changes improve everything by themselves, but it is remarkably easy to discover many unit changes make matters worse. Ignore "Tricks", Engineer & Build the system!
We're accepting reservations for the Jan. 21st & 28th weekends. These will be the final workshops for this year. A little investment in yourself now can save you thousands on your next engine build!
