VWs are essentially the hot rods of the air-cooled world

Aircooled Engine ACE Racing Engines - Engine Builder Magazine Sept 2021

When Greg Jones, editor of Engine Builder magazine, asked us to write a small piece about air-cooled engines, we were honored.

We wanted to discuss the past, present and future of the air-cooled engine; the inner workings, the great aftermarket products now available, and the evolution of the aircooled turbo motor with EFI.

There’s some V8 talk and plenty of machining discussion, guided by our own story and experiences.

ACE LS build featured in ENGINE BUILDER Magazine!

We are so humbled to have been approached by Greg from Engine Builder Magazine to discuss our latest LS build!

When we spoke to Greg, Adrian’s twin turbo 370 cid LS was on the stand going through the final stages of the build before being shipped out to the UK to be fitted into a neat little street & strip Vauxhall Victor, an English station wagon from 1968.

The engine is made up of an iron block, GM crank, Callies rods, Brian Tooley Racing twin turbo cam, CP-Carrillo pistons, AFR heads and ARP hardware. It’s got twin 62mm turbos with ball bearing and billet wheels and will be powered by Holley Dominator EFI.

We are looking forward to seeing Adrian’s engine making approximately 1200hp!
