     Have a 03-04 Cobra  Engine you need Re-built or Freshened?

     How about a new Engine for that Hot Rod or Factory Five Kit Car?

      We specialize in Ford Modular Engines.  2, 3 or 4-Valve - 4.6L to 5.L - and have many customers that needed a complete, ready to install engine for their Mustang or current project.


    
We take great pride in the fact that many have chosen us to build their engine for their special project...We have built them for Drag Racers, Road Racers, Hot Rods, Kit Cars and everything in between. While we can handle most every job, we prefer to limit ourselves to 03-04 Cobra, and 2,3 & 4-Valve Performance Engines.

We do not do high volume remanufacturing

     There are many of those places available for that line of work. Instead, we limit ourselves to Specialized, and One-Off type Engines. While the 03-04 Cobra engine is our most popular engine to build, we also build Single and Twin Turbo Engines, Specialty Nitrous applications, Engine conversions, and a variety of Normally Aspirated combinations.

     Our typical customer wants a complete engine, but does not want to talk or coordinate between 15 different vendors or people, they want one company to manage the complete build. One company to deal with, and one company to make the decision that will give them the best engine for their needs.....that is what we do best.

     We listen to the customer, find out what their needs are, give them several options that make sense for their circumstance, and allow them to pick what works best for them....Then build it and finish it out exactly as planned. Generally that means a complete engine, with complete Ignition, Fuel, and Intake Air System and ready to install into their project. Many times we pre-install the Engine Wiring and get the Engine Computer pre-programmed with all the essentials for their engine. Most of our customers that build Hot Rods and Factory Five Vehicles want this service. They do not need to fuss with the engine, but rather want to install the engine and plug in the electronics and go forward with the build. This is just fine for us, we actually love what we do, and love meeting those different challenges ask of us, and each custom vehicle has it's many own challenges!

      Our wide variety of applications and the experienced gained from each one of them, makes us very flexible and knowledgeable. We take pride in the work we do and the care shows in very new engine. We can not only build you a great engine, but an award winning engine as well. We can do custom Colors, Paint and Powder Coatings to match any existing theme. We can have parts Polished to a mirror like shine, or Custom Plated to suit, and many of our customer take advantage of this service.  In fact, in some ways these custom services set us apart from our competitors more than the actual engine work.  It's not just enough to care that your engine works properly, we want your engine to look as well as it works.  And why not?  What is the first thing anyone does when they show someone their car?  They open the hood!  And we want that person to be excited, way before he hears it run.  Trust me, if we work on, they will. 

     One more reason we are not for everyone….And I mean it.  Don't ask us to build a plain vanilla, ugly engine…because we won't.  It does not mean you have to spend huge sums on every engine for the bright work, but it will be a part of the engine budget.  We can really do wonders with just a small percentage of the total budget going toward the aesthetic.
