Default Big Day At Scorpion Racing Engines

I would just like to say that i had one of my better days at scorpion racing...These guys are top notch i have never seen a shop as clean and orginized as this....You could literally eat of every machine they had in the building..I have added a few pics for you guys to see waht i am talking about......There are a few of you here who use them here and i think a lot more of you should, Frank and Phil working together on my motor on the dyno was really something to see, it was kind of like two doctors working on a patient the way they bounce ideas of each other is amazing.......For this big of a shop to spend this much time with a small guy like me was really amazing,Frank made me feel like i was John hagin or david scott about to buy 10 blower motors from him.......You race guys need to take note because this is a up in coming big builder,and he loves the race support role.....

Plus my little 540 made some big numbers after they tweaked a few things..........Thanks a lot guys and i will see ya in the winter after i tear around all summer with my newly super tuned 540.......

I will add a video later of the dyno for now here is the pics of the shop,it is hard to tell but every room is totally seperate from each other.....Even the machinig area had not a spec of dust anywhere....

Awesome, Mike! Can't wait to see that Magnum run with a Scorpion tune job done on your motor.

One thing you forgot to mention, There's room in the shop and a bridge crane with an electric hoist for rigging work, too.

Congrats,
Brian

Had Frank and Phil freshen my motors in the off season last year. Very pleased with the results and customer service. One of the few times in the marine industry when I found this to extend even after the check was cashed. Top notch guys!
