4. 1927 Bentley 3.0l #DN1744

Our good friend Dick Belveal asked us to go through the engine in his 1927 Bentley, so we took it in and meticulously rebuilt the massive powerplant. Though the displacement is only 3-liters, the engine itself is quite massive in size. Once the rebuild was complete it headed for the dyno before being delivered back to a very happy Mr. Belveal.

3. 1949 Fiat Topolino

Back in the early 2000s, we turbocharged five 500cc Fiat Topolino engines for a group of customers. Our good friend Joey Cavaglieri owner of Cavaglieri Restorations asked us if we would give his Topolino engine similar treatment, so we added our custom third main girdle, a custom Bryant Racing crankshaft Carrillo IndyCar rods and custom Wiseco pistons. Instead of the turbo we went with a small supercharger which required a custom drive. The 'Little Mouse' will now roar like a lion!

2. Custom Jaguar V12

Alex Borla wanted a flashy engine to show off the Borla Induction EFI throttle bodies, so he asked Ryan to restore and customize a Jaguar V12. The engine was completely rebuilt, the Borla logo was machined into the cam covers and then custom painted. Ryan fabricated the headers for dyno testing, but they ended up looking so good, we photographed them with the engine.

1. Mopar LMP Street Revamp

This Mopar LMP (Le Mans Prototype) was built in 2002 by our good friend John Caldwell, owner of Caldwell Development, Inc. When John closed up shop, this engine was sold to a gentleman who wanted to put it in a street car. Through a strange set of circumstances, it came to us via a different owner, and we handled the conversion from racing engine to high-power street engine.
