Testimonials

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!

I just got my 2110cc installed in my 63. Man, this thing is awesome!  Still going through the break in, but quick shifting at 3500 this thing barks 2nd!!!! Chico is a man of his word and it was an absolute pleasure dealing with him on the whole engine build.  When he sounded busy or said he would call back, he took the time to do so.  Try finding that with some other builders out there.  Chico delivered every thing and more (quality, time, etc.) with this engine.
