What We Can Do for You

For Antique and Classic Engines, we begin by providing our customers with an assessment of their engine building needs with a thorough quote once we are able to see what we are working with. If you are looking for a cheap fix or a bandaid to your engine problem, we may not be the shop for you. We begin by disassembling, cleaning, and inspecting the parts once you bring the engine to us (out of the car). Once this is done, we discuss with the customer what is needed to build the engine to your goals or specifications. We then find or make the required parts, do the machine work, and assemble the engine. For Racing & High Performance Engines, we are able to custom build to your goals and budget!
