Testimonials

I purchased a turnkey 1914cc stroker & tranny from Chico Performance Racing and have been blown away by the power and performance she puts out. Chico was great to work with, allowing me to make changes to the initial package deal as he built the engine. Chico helped me put together an engine that would throw your head back yet give me the reliability to drive +/- 75 miles a day as my daily driver. I own a few air-cooleds and always love the conversations I strike up with strangers on the cars. Now when I lift the deck lid everyone takes a step back in awe! Chico's engines are works of art down to the smallest detail. I am 150% satisfied with the product and customer service and would recommend anyone looking for an engine builder to call and just chat with Chico. You will be pleasantly surprised with your experience.

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!
