“We have been working with Dave Rebello for almost 2 years
now. Our first and most substantial project was a 3.5L Nissan
V6 project for our SCCA GT2 car. GT2 is considered the state
of the art for SCCA in the sports car classes. Our engine was
spec’d with a single restrictor of 37mm and needed to
make nearly 380 hp.
much discussion with several possible engine builders, we
decided to use Dave for three reasons: First, his currency
with the latest technologies and approaches. Dave is not set
in his ways and is constantly pushing himself to find new
ways to make more power. Secondly, his use of computer modeling
to “get us close” and many years of intuition
to know when the model wasn't “getting it right”
on something. Thirdly, his personality and general ability
to work with others. He communicates well and is willing to
explain and listen to ideas from non-experts and give them
In the end our project was a huge success – a reliable
engine that made target horsepower on the first attempt! We
immediately caught up with everyone else in the class who
were on their 4th and 5th engines and had done years of development.
Dave immediately got it right on without trial and error.
Since this first engine has been completed, we have purchased
4 more engines from Dave and several cylinder heads to retrofit
our older motors. In the classes we race in, no one has more
power than our Rebello powered cars; we now have no excuses
except the drivers…”
