All new 2276cc or 2387cc Turbo aircooled engine, using only the best parts on the market, combined with modern building techniques to create the perfect Aircooled VW turbo engine for street and racing applications.

Each engine we build is custom per client; we do not operate an assembly line therefore our engines are not ‘off the shelf’. The list below is a non-exhaustive list of components we like to work with, though we prefer to speak to our clients first and foremost to discuss their engine requirements before finalizing the build spec.  Please contact our chief engine builder and owner Stefan, if you would like a quote or to place an order.

The 2387cc motor makes 292w/wheel hp and 344fw/hp at just 10psi of boost!

The YouTube video below shows ACE Owner and Chief engine builder, Stefan Rossi, doing a little fine tuning with a customer on the street with his 2387cc turbo engine running on E85.

We use the FuelTech EFI engine management system on all our Aircooled VW engine builds. Check out the FT450 here.

There are many vital steps to building an engine which are often missed, or not even considered, by other engine builders.  Cylinder surface finish and rocker geometry are two great examples of important measurements and data collection, which are essential figures when building an aircooled engine that will last. Our Machine Shop and Engine Room pages, explain in more detail the meticulous processes and show you our top of the range measuring equipment and the clinical looking engine assembly room.
