Great weekend at the mcminnville municipal airport here in Oregon! We lost 4th gear day one, but turned it up and shifted over the hump into 5th. Still went 177.8 mph in the standing half mile! This engine is over a year old and still keeps taking what we throw at it. Pass after pass after pass. Built and tuned by PREracing. Precision Turbo & Engine #pte6466 #turbo. Tuned on #COBB #accessport. #osgiken triple plate clutch. #turbosmart boost control. #manley internals. #preracing #fasterisbetter

Looking pretty good in the morning light!

The leader board at the end of day #2! Second place in the sedan class but look at those speeds in AWD. Just about every one would have been a world record yesterday but 247mph in a standing 1/2 mile! Are you serous?!

PREracing BBQ & Dyno Day – OCT 24th!

Subaru friends! Come hangout at the shop for another family friendly gathering with great food, nice cars, and awesome people! This may be the last time we can do this until spring so don’t miss out! Our dyno is lowered friendly, oh, and lifted too ;). No need to worry, we got you (Especially you stock guys). We’re expecting some high horsepower Subaru’s in the 400-500whp+ range to be showing up. It’s going to be what some call a HOOT! Can’t wait to see you all there!
