Aircooled Engineering is a West Midlands based one man engine shop started and run by Aircooled VW enthusiast and engine builder Stefan Rossi in 2011.
I have over 14 years experience working on all ranges of Aircooled and Chevrolet V8 engines both in the UK and across the Atlantic. Engines I have built range from Volks World Magazine Best Of Show winning 25hp motors, to daily driven fuel injected turbo bus motors and everything in between. A big thing that I take pride in, are reliable big CC daily driven Bus motors and reliable daily driven turbo EFI motors.
Over the last 14 years, I have raced two Aircooled VW’s here in the UK and in Belgium with both turbo and IDA motor’d car’s, always driving them to and from the track. I am currently campaigning a 1966 Chevy II Nova which runs 8.97 @ 151mph in the 1/4 mile with a normally aspirated Small Block Chevy motor. Soon to return in another Aircooled VW racing a street driven 1967 Convertible Beetle with turbo EFI and a 2000hp twin turbo motor in the Nova.
All engines are built by myself in a pristine and clean engine room environment, each engine, no matter if stock or performance is fully blueprinted and built to the correct specs & tolerances for that engines purpose. Every process of every build is photographed and posted online to allow each customer can see exactly what parts are used in their engines. Every turnkey engine is then run up with the initial cam burn done and followed by a day of tuning. All engines come with a full 1 year warranty on parts and labour.
One of my main interests and specialties are turbo EFI motors. A readily available complete Aircooled turbo kit to purchase with my engines or separately for your own engine will soon be made available. This will consist of FuelTech EFI, A1 Muffler stainless turbo header, Garrett ball bearing turbo, CB Performance throttle bodies and some of my own ACE Engineering billet parts. Keep an eye on the ‘Live Updates’ or Facebook page for details!
