We never stop improving our product

We work closely with the industries top vendors.

We are committed to making sure our product is of the highest quality and as such work with the top vendors in the business. 

We've built our reputation on excellence in race engines, with a constant focus on serving our customers.

Founded in 1963 Salina Engine has seen many changes in the market and in its market presence. Gradually Salina Engine began to build a reputation as one of the best race engine shops in the midwest and throughout the late 90's and early 2000's had one of the most prominent reputations in the 360 and 410 sprint divisions. Over the years we have seen work from divisions ranging from NASCAR truck series to NHRA pro stock. Along with that Salina Engine has seen its fair share of NHRA comp eliminator engines as well as many all aluminum late model engines.

In the late 2000's our focus shifted to other business opportunities and the volume of race engines we supplied declined.

However beginning in 2017 we have brought on new personnel and are back up to full capacity. Looking to pick up where we left off we have reestablished our connections with the industries top manufacturers, and are taking on work from all forms of racing.
