This blue thunder, A.T Francis's? They are solid, they have made huge strides in regards to big block ford power in the truck pulling arena and drag racing. Great cylinder heads come out this shop. Small, quaint and tons of horsepower with great attention to detail. I have used BT heads for years.

There is also a Blue Thunder Racing Engines here in South Florida. It is owned by Bob Stefanio who used to race a Donzi years ago.
Shop used to be next to the old Doller Marine location.

Rob Stopano owner of Blue Thunder Enignes has the biggest and cleanest outfit in our industry, voted in Broward county as the cleanest and most up to date for the environment in engine building and fabricating. The company is divided into three operations working three shifts, Scorpion Performance roller rockers head quarters in the same building and a complete anodize operation. His engine shop is top of the line with a complete machine shop and the biggest dyno room around with the best set up that I`ve seen ever. You may have seen allot of top notch outfits, however when you walk and a take tour of the facility and its water cleaning system and the size you will be amazed. I will take pictures next time I`m there. He has over 20 telephone sales reps working in the same building selling their products. Rob used to race the fame Extreme Stainles marine race boat to two world championships with Rick Turmel.

Blue Thunder built my race engine for the 2000 and 2001 season and my current "pleasure" engine. E-mail me and I'll tell you my thoughts on Blue Thunder.
