For this session, Joe Castello and Lake Speed Jr are joined by Mahle’s Dan Begle, Mark Cronquist, Ben Strader, and Charles Navarro to talk technology and what it means for the future of performance engine building.
The guys discuss advancements in areas as varied as coatings, materials, and precision measurement, and how pulling these technologies together enables next level performance. They also talk about where they think the next breakthroughs will come from (hydrogen combustion anyone?), and what that will require to make it reality.
Finally, the group takes questions from the audience and discusses what tech is going to have the biggest impact on performance engine builders in the near future.
