All engines are built by Stefan in a pristine engine room. Each engine, no matter if stock or performance is fully blueprinted and built to the correct specs & clearances for that engines purpose. Every process of every build is photographed and posted online to allow each customer to see their engine take shape. Every turnkey engine is then run up with the initial cam burn done  followed by a day of tuning.

All engines come with a full 1 year warranty on parts and labour.
