The history is incredible!

We have been in the air-cooled world for roughly 20 years. We do everything from building engines for Torcs off road racing to selling original german parts around the world!

This car made the cover of Hot VW a few years back and we can see why. The attention to detail on this car is amazing!
Just came into the shop for a little service work.

We are getting some formula FST cars ready for the first race at Gateway Motorsports Park next weekend. Both cars will be running our exclusive oil and Seward Speed Shop engines!

Hopefully set some new track records this year!

Fresh rebuilt fuel pumps going out to a customer with a quite unique collection of air-cooled VW's!

03/12/2019

Now that the weather is starting to turn around people are ready to get their cars finished up and back on the road.
This already low baja is coming down another 2inchs, getting rid of the turbo going back to N/A, and a new transmission going in!

These old Volkswagens have become a lifestyle for people around the globe. From the guy that has mismatched parts to just keep their car on the road, To the guy that has a mint original collection, and everyone in between!

Still one of our favorite builds to date!
What would you stuff this monster in!?

We couldnt stop with the twin turbo motor. So this week we went with a 1915cc equipped with Seward Speed Shops hand ported heads, paired with a custom ground SLR camshaft. To top it all off we custom fabricated an intake manifold to support this AMR500 supercharger. This combination is going to make for one rowdy beetle!

The Rust Bus (Teaser) *Caution* Twins On Board!

Ok, so maybe we weren't the first ones to put twin turbos on a vw bus. However we might be the first one to rip a bus from the field after 20 years and just throw some snails in the back hatch. Just a little sneak peak, theres alot more to come!

We introduce you our first of many projects, The Rust Bus! Hopefully, this little teaser video will give you an idea of whats going on so far! We have so muc...

12/31/2018

Over the passed few weeks, we've put together one of the most unique bay window buses around! As far as we know it is actually the very first twin turbo bus ever built! Stick around to see the video of this thing in action!

Tough times for those in Paradise and other parts of California. Seek out ways to help these folks if you can. Heartbreaking to see the pics and videos.

What is better than having a turbo?? Having twins. This monster 2027cc twin turbo motor is about ready to get stuffed in a sand rail.

Just a bunch of bay windows.

07/07/2016

One of our custom Seward Speed Shop Baja's came back into the shop. Customers request is to get enough power to do wheelies.
We figured a monster turbo engine is the way to go!

07/07/2016

We gave this Baja a little more pep in its step. Set him up right, with a nice 1776cc!
