WANTED - Certified NASA Tech Centers in IL, IN, MO, WI, IA +

Recommended Posts

Dave Royce

This is a broadcast post to add many new shops to the Midwest Region (currently being created for posting) of approved NASA Tech Centers.

 

We are particularly interested in shops that are full service, although its not a requirement. The perfect shop looks like this:

 

Located near a major city or track we use

Race-car Fabrication Expertise

Enjoys Track Events

Has a 248 or 448 Dynojet Dyno

Willing to read the NASA CC&R

likes the idea that NASA will send them customers

 

If you know of a shop that is active in the enthusiasts market, please list the shops contact info here. I will contact them from this info and discuss the details.

 

The Shop list will be posted on the website in a couple of weeks.

They are who I am going to use for my cage. They build race cars, mostly for Grand-Am, SCCA, BMWCCA and Porsche Club. So with that customer base, it would be great to get them involved with NASA.

I'll email a guy at King Motorsports (Milwaukeeland), I wouldn't be surprised if they're interested. I am pretty sure their dyno is a Dynojet of some sort. They also are full-service (cages, motor work, etc.)

MROZ Complete Auto Inc

3200 E 73rd Avenue

Merrillville, IN 46410

Owner Dan Mroz

 

He has a Dyno Jet 448 . I'm not sure if they perform fabrication, however, I know Dan has built several race cars.

I haven't been able to get Dan out to a NASA event, but he would be a great fit with our region. He is an avid open tracker, and has ties to several different open track organizations.

"Not Just Hondas" should be their slogan, lol. But honestly they do great work, and are constantly at local track events at Autobahn and Gman. This year they will be campaigning a few cars in HC I believe.

A big Thankyou to the guys at FC Customs . Fri afternoon we were dynoing 3 cars and 1 blew a head gasket. Chad and Tony stayed late helping us change the gasket and finish the certification runs on that car so it could make the Iowa event. Thanks again

The shop specializes in Subarus and imports but is branching out including their brand new Dynojet 448 with tuning software and wide band. Multiple techs and mechanics are employed 5 days a week.

Recently they built a new 2009 Subaru STI and ran it in the Redline time attack getting third place and are going through the rules now for Time Trial to run NASA events.

I drove the car last weekend at Autobahn. Pretty impressive and well done.

I can suggest a Dyno shop close to Autobahn if that proves helpful. From Autobahn hop on I80 east and get off on Rt45/LaGrange Road south, next right to 191st St., keep going west to Grotovsky Drive just past the railroad tracks. .

great guy who knows his way around a dyno and wants to get your car dialed in right on the dyno. If you can tune on the fly he's happy to let you tweak on the car after each pull to get it zeroed in. Full service fabrication shop, so i'm sure they can do whatever to tech, install or fab up what your needs are.
