The Origins of Our Oceanside Full-Service Engine Machining Facility
Machine Tech Racing Engine has spent decades evolving into the full-service engine machining facility that it is today. In the 1960s founder and owner Monte Woodard—alongside his father and brother—would visit the local drag strip in Carlsbad. Captivated then by the smell, the noise, and the thrill of drag racing, Monte has spent the rest of his life giving back to the drag racing community in San Diego.
What started as a passion turned into an engine machine shop that now caters to racers and car lovers alike. In many ways, our shop is a relic of an old and cherished era. You won’t find our level of passion, quality, and expertise in other shops. When it comes to your engine’s care, no one’s better at delivering power and speed than Monte and his team of trained technicians at Machine Tech.
Why Machine Tech Racing Engines?
Our facility is outfitted with unparalleled equipment—like the Sunnen® SV-20—that you just won’t see in other shops. You will experience the luxury of working with a knowledgeable team of technicians who love what they do. On top of that, we have decades of experience, which means we get the job done—and done right.
