Testimonials

I ordered a 2017cc engine from Chico. I even went down to his shop in SoCal to meet him. Very clean and organized shop and I was surprised how young he was given his reputation.  When I got it home, I uncrated it and was very impressed. It was beautiful.

I bolted it up to my refurbished ‘69 pan that had been waiting for it, pulled some wires, and dropped an extended fuel line into a gas can.  Hit the start button and it fired right up and sounded great. Twin 44's all set up and a dyno sheet shows 126hp @ 5500.

I could not be happier.  A little pricy but you'll get what you pay for. Spec out any part or manufacturer and Chico will put it together for you.

Chico built me a great 2110 for my bus that is blowing everything away. He helped me over the phone more times than I can count when I needed to speak to him about stuff.  He gladly packed and repacked my motor to fit in all the stuff I had delivered to him from other Samba buys, and he did everything he could to help me out. I cannot recommend him highly enough - We should all be supporting excellent VW'ers like this, they are the muscle behind the whole VW scene!
