MDR Performance Engines manufactures a full line of crate engines for hot rods, racers, and classic cars. Building on a long tradition of quality, our engines are currently powering vehicles around the globe.
Tracing our roots back to the early 1980s as a local Northern Virginia machine shop, MDR Engines has grown to become one of the premier engine builders on the East Coast. Going hand-in-hand with our crate engine manufacturing, MDR offers full automotive machining services. Our AERA certified machinists are highly trained working with engines from the early 1900s to present day.
We take pride in everything we build, from restoring a priceless antique engine to building a modern-day 1000hp race engine. Our attention to detail and overall build quality sets us apart from the competition.
One thing you will notice when purchasing an MDR engine is our attention to detail and quality. We strive to use only name brand, American-made components whenever possible. Each of our engines are assembled by a highly trained machinist, not just an assembler. We then stand behind our work with a 3 years, unlimited mileage warranty.
