Race Winners!

Long known for building award and race winning cars for our customers, AHP, with the help of our friend, Terry Perry, decided to build a car for ourselves. It began when Terry found a Fox body race car that someone else had started but lost interest (and money) in and he bought it cheap. It needed some work so we began just cleaning it up and fixing the mistakes previous owner had made. It appeared to have a reasonably strong 351 ci motor and Tremec 3550 tranny in it so we focused mainly on the safety stuff - frame, suspension, brakes, etc.

We had it in shape for a shakedown in time for Ford Fever at MIR on Oct 20 so took it down both as part of our Vendor Midway display and to get some track time. To do so, we had to enter the race so we picked the Stick ET class. Despite a few chassis problems and running on an old set of drag radials, it did reasonably well in qualifying with a best time of 12.09 @ 117 mph.  

Now it was time for the real racing. With a botched launch by yours truly, we lost the first round of eliminations - but with lots of encouragement from Terry, we bought back in. It turned out to be a well invested $25. With a great deal of luck and a redlight by a VERY fast 427 Fairlane in the









final race, WE WON!! And went home with an awesome trophy and $$$ in our pocket.

It was a good day for the team.

2004 Corvette C5 Coupe

Rick had always been happy with his "Little Red Corvette" but thought it needed a little more punch to keep up with today's muscle cars. We obliged with A&A Corvette's great looking and performing Vortech based supercharger kit and SLP's full exhaust including their ceramic coated long tube headers and LM II exhaust. We think you'll agree the results speak for themselves - and so does the grin Rick now wears whenever he drives it! Check out this video.

High Performance Four Wheelin'!

David wanted his already exceptional Black Pearl Jeep SRT8 to stand out on the road and track as well. Although it came with a stout 6.1L Hemi making 425 HP out of the factory, as with all horsepower fanatics, Dave wanted a little more. And AHP delivered with a Vortech V3 Supercharger system. Matched with his Borla performance exhaust, the awesome four-wheeler now boasts 660 HP at the flywheel! Putting it to the pavement through all four wheels, you better be packin' some big guns if you challenge this one at the stoplight.

New Definition of Super Charger

Maurice originally brought his nice red 2006 Charger to us with some problems. A poor centrifugal supercharger setup with an even worse tune spelled trouble. A quick borescope of the cylinders revealed significant piston damage from detonation. And he had paid thousands to ship the car to the West Coast to have this done! We discussed the options and he decided on a whole new approach - an AHP 426 Hemi build and the massive Kenne Bell 3.6L Liquid Cooled supercharger. Add a few other tidbits like an Asanti grill set and custom wheels and it left here a gorgeous fire-breathing monster.
