We've been talking about the Castrol Syntec Top Shop Challenge for the past couple of issues and we've actually begun working on the project. After talking to Jerry at Ace Machine in Riverside, California, we came up with a game plan and he began doing all of the research needed to make this buildup happen. Jerry spent many hours on the computer researching some of the parts that he was thinking about using. The planning of this engine was important as a performance engine of this caliber take a few weeks to come to life.

The first thing on the agenda was to find an engine core. Once the core was in hand, we wanted to make sure that we had a solid foundation for the engine. The engine block was hot tanked and magna fluxed to make sure that it wasn't cracked. Jerry then started to measure the piston size to see how big we needed to bore out the block.

Jerry was planning on using Castrol Syntec oil as it helps provide superior protection against deposits. This modern day oil neutralizes acids in your engine that can cause rust and corrosion on vital parts such as cylinders, bearings and hydraulic valve lifters. Castrol Syntec oil will also help protect the engine, increasing its longevity and horsepower.

With leading companies like ARP, Comp Cams, CP Pistons and Milodon on board for the buildup, we can't wait to start dressing up the engine and see how it turns out. There will be candy paint and lots of chrome; you know how we build our lowrider engines. Now follow along as Jerry at Ace Machine starts on our Lowrider "monster" engine.
