Testimonials

I am very pleased and impressed with my new CPR 1914 + pro-street transmission. Chico was very polite and prompt when I called him for help and status updates on the build process. He helped me decide what the best combination of power plant options for my driving habits. Now that everything is installed and running perfectly, I can't rave enough about his attention to detail and skill. He is a true master at what he does. He even offered to lend me some of his tools to make the engine install go easier. My 1961 Bug now runs smooth and is very fast. The engine starts right up and idles perfectly. I did not have to make any adjustments, just turned the key and go have fun! The engine looks great too, it could easily take a best engine trophy home from the VW shows I attend. Thank you Chico!
