Default My Compliments to Keith Eickert!



Yesterday I drove up to Keith Eickerts to pick up my engines for the MTI. I had never met Keith in person before. What an incredible guy! First of all, I have never in my life seen such an immaculte shop! It's probably 15,000 sq feet and there is not a total of 1 ounce of oil on the entire floor. It is as clean as a hospital. I have never seen anything like it. He was showing me some of the new things he's working on and the guy is so far ahead of anyone else i have seen in the indusrty. I decided yesterday after talking with him to have him build me a set of the big Turbo engines. He is esimating 1,350 on pump gas with low boost with dependability. 1,500+ on C12. I only hope the MTI is big enough!!

Yeah Gino,
Keith is a great guy, down to earth and yes, his engine assembly room rivals some of NASA's clean rooms for cleanliness!
Are you using his headers?

The engines he is going to build for me are beautiful. Very different looking from the normal blower motor. He said the 1350's can run on pump gas and still be very dependable.
