At Mountune, we understand that the engine is the heart of any car. That’s why we take great care in building all of our engines from the ground up. While many engine builders simply bolt together components, we inspect, machine, and balance the entire assembly providing you with a true motorsport-grade blueprinted assembly with each engine build requiring 30-40 hours of labor.

The complexity of the engine-building process is what sets Mountune apart from the competition. Our builders use advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that each engine is built to the highest standards. We start by taking in new genuine OE base components such as the engine block and cylinder head and perform a complete pre-build inspection.

To ensure excellent gasket sealing, we de-burr all edges and then re-surface the head gasket sealing surfaces on both the engine block and cylinder head.
All rotating components including the crankshaft, connecting rods, and pistons are all dynamically balanced to Formula One standards at 0.5 grams. All critical dimensions such as bearing clearance are measured and set for optimized performance.

From balancing and blueprinting to final professional assembly, every aspect of the process is carefully monitored to guarantee optimal performance and reliability. With over 40 years of racing heritage and a winning legacy that includes multiple Pike’s Peak International Hill Climb, King of the Mountain titles, mountune is a trusted name in the motorsport community. Our engine series is the culmination of decades of experience and expertise in the industry, making it the ultimate choice for anyone seeking the highest level of reliable performance.
