We are the only shop in the region properly equipped and staffed to offer ground up performance from basic bolt on mods to all out drag race, gravel and tarmac rally, road race, autoX, time attack, and ice race builds. In 2004 the Japanese brands Subaru, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Honda, Acura started off as our focus, but over the years we expanded our range to service select turbocharged vehicles from other makes such as BMW, VW/Audi, and Porsche.
