Aircooled Engineering & ACE Performance Engines was founded by Aircooled VW and Hot Rod enthusiast Stefan Rossi in 2011. ACE specializes in new performance engine builds for Aircooled VW and Chevrolet LS based engines.
Stefan has over 14 years experience building all ranges of Aircooled and Chevrolet V8 engines, both in the UK and across the Atlantic. Engines built range from VolksWorld Magazine Best Of Show winning 25hp motors, daily driven fuel injected turbo bus motors to 8 second street cars and everything in between.
All engines are built by Stefan in a purpose built engine room. Each engine is fully balanced, blueprinted and built with the correct bearing clearances for that engines horsepower levels. Every build is photographed and posted on social media to allow each customer to follow their build and see exactly what parts are going into their engine! Every turnkey engine is then run up with camshaft and piston rings broken in, followed by a day of tuning. (engine dyno coming soon!!)
An upcoming focus for 2019 is a complete Aircooled VW turbo kit. This will be available to purchase with an ACE engine or separately for your own engine. The kit will consist of the best parts currently on the market… FuelTech EFI, A1 Muffler stainless turbo header, Garrett ball bearing turbo, CB Performance throttle bodies and finished off with Aircooled Engineering billet CNC parts.
Chevrolet LS single & twin turbo kit also coming soon…
Keep an eye on the Facebook & Instagram pages for details!
Stefan has raced two Aircooled VW’s in the UK and in Europe, both with turbo and IDA motor’d cars – always driving them to and from the track. He is currently campaigning a 1966 Chevy II Nova SS, which runs 8.97 @ 151mph in the 1/4 mile with a normally aspirated Small Block Chevy motor.
