We are a small family owned company of 6 employees. Our shop is located in California’s San Fernando Valley in a 6,000 sq. ft. building purchased in 1987. All of our machining equipment is state of the art, enabling us to finish machine our engines to the exact specifications we require. Additionally, we stock a vast selection of engine cores and internal engine parts which we import direct from Germany. Our founder Erich Oeffinger began technical training with Mercedes-Benz in 1947 in Mannheim Germany, specializing in engine machining. Mercedes-Benz transferred him to the factory store in Hollywood, Ca in 1960 with an emphasis on helping diagnose engine malfunctions. In 1980, shortly after committing full time to his engine business, Erich was joined by his son-in-law Mike Elias who’s business experience was a perfect match to Erich’s technical expertise. Erich retired in 1990 and remains as a consultant.
