Final results are in for the Jeg's Engine Master's Challenge: BTR Finishes #10 Overall

The Jeg's / Popular Hot Rodding Engine Master's Challenge is over. The BTR / Earl B. Emery, Registered Representative for Multi Financial Securities Corporation 410 Cubic Inch Olds Entry finished #10 overall in a field of the top 50 Engine Builders in North America. We here at BTR are very happy with this successful outing. Considering the cylinder head handicap that this Olds entry was faced with against far superior Ford and Chevy heads, we fared quite well.

The other Olds entries were essentially at the bottom of the pack. BTR's superior skills, knowledge and experience certainly shined in this prestigious competition by running side by side with Big Dogs using a less than optimal engine package. 

Next year, BTR will likely reconsider the approach and utilize a more advantageous package to put them over the top!!!
So.. next time you are considering a new engine program, improving your current combination or a basic re-build, why not choose the services who has shown to be the best!! BTR continuously PROVES to be the best!! Why listen to big talkers that show no results at the track or the dyno.... BTR can give you SOLID, RELIABLE, POWERFUL results that you can be assured of.  Click on the image above or HERE to see a video of the BTR entry on the EMC Dyno.  Be sure to CONTACT BTR Performance for your next project!
