2013 Honda NSX And Comptech

Is everyone as excited as I am for the new 2013 Honda NSX to come out?  At Comptech racing engines we have a rich history of building fast NSX engines.  Everything from the only Daytona Prototype race car to ever have an NSX engine in it to NSX cars racing in the SCCA, Comptech racing engines has been there.  Will Comptech be at the forefront of building a new 2013 Comptech NSX specialty car?  Nobody knows at this point but the excitement around the Comptech race engine shop is high.

Presently as of 2012, Comptech continues to work on vintage NSX racing engines for teams running club races, among other things.  The new 2013 Honda NSX is supposed to have an all aluminum V6 gas engine, rear wheel drive with the engine sitting about in the middle.  The new 2013 NSX is slated to be used at the 2013 Japanese Grand Prix.  In what capacity is unknown at this point.

For all your Honda NSX or Acura engine racing needs see Comptech USA in Sacramento, CA.

Comptech Race Engine Latest

Well it has been quite some time since we last wrote on our blog.  At Comptech we have been busy building faster and better race engines.  There is a lot of exciting news with Comptech and our state of the art facility in Sacramento, Ca.  Though we continue to prepare numerous SCCA club and pro engines we are proud to add C.J. Wilson Racing as one of the fold.  For the 2011 and 2012 Grand Am Series Competch will prepare the newly formed team’s Mazda Powered engines.  At Comptech we have had a number of celebrity’s race our engines including Patrick Dempsy at the race in Long Beach.   Having Jason Saini and C.J. Wilson bring their Mazda engines to us shows the respect and confidence top race teams have for Comptech.  See you at the races!

As most know, Comptech has built some great Honda race engines over the years.  Honda race engines are synonomous with Comptech.  Today I would like to talk about NSX race engines built by Comptech.  This could be a long blog about all the championships Comptech has won and the quality and power Comptech puts in the Honda Race Engines  (though now Comptech is really excited to be focasing on the Mazda race engines).  The proof of Comptech’s staying power with Honda Race Engines, Mazda Race Engines and NSX Race Engines is to look at You Tube.  All you have to do is type in Comptech race engine and there are a lot of real cool video’s of the popular Comptech race engines.   You can even type in Honda race engine or NSX race engine or Honda racing engine on You Tube and Comptech pops up quite a bit.

So let me give you a few searches on You Tube to watch some cool Comptech racing engine stuff.  The best video’s are of the experimental Grand Am Comptech Honda NSX engine.  When in You Tube type in the following:  1.) Beyer Racing Comptech Honda  2.) Comptech Honda Daytona Race Engine  3.) Comptech Honda Daytona Prototype Race Engine.  Turn the volume up on the Infenion shake down practice run video.  Listen to that Comptech Honda race engine roar.

Some other fun video’s to watch on You Tube are as follows. Type in the following search:  1.) NSX Gone Wild official trailer  2.) Comptech supercharged NSX racing   3.) NSX CTS (Comptech Supercharged)  4.) Comptech Race Engines

Have fun looking at some cool Comptech tuned engines on You Tube.  Whether you are a race team or street cruiser, Comptech can build or prepare your winning engine.  Go to the comptechusa.com website and learn more.

Time Attack Racing

The Comptech powered Tri-Point Mazda3 MZR engine hit Willow Springs on July 8th to compete in the new Time Attack race as a super modified FWD race car.  This is new territory for everyone at Tri-Point and Comptech Race Engines.  Driver Jason Saini laid down a time of 1:28.212.  For further information on this road racing venture go to www.comptechusa.com and look under media and pictures.  More race engine news coming soon as Comptech continues to work on the new Mazda3 turbo charged race engine.


I was looking through the old website archives and found the Comptech websites full of old history.  There is just too much to mention.  For example did you know that in 2000 Comptech had 11Comptech engines racing in the Indianapolis 500?  In fact Comptech prepared engines took first place with Juan Montoya, seventh place with Jimmy Vasser, tenth place with Scott Sharp, etc. etc..  Also, in 2000 the Longhorn 500 Indy race Scott Sharp won with a Comptech prepared engine and Robby McGehee took second with a Comptech prepared engine.  Their engines also placed fourth and sixth.   That is what is called Comptech Race Engine domination.  It is too bad the Honda took over the series a few years later ousting all the independent engine builders such as Comptech.

Without hesitation I can say that Comptech Racing Engines has been an important part of the history (in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s) of the Indianapolis 500 race.

Patrick Dempsey Racing Comptech Engine

Just a few cool updates on the Comptech race engines.  In April actor Patrick Dempsey got behind the wheel of a Comptech prepared engine Mazda 3 at Long Beach.  What a pleasure to have Patrick use the Comptech power under his feet.  For further details about this see www.comptechusa.com

On a similar note Michael Cooper won the Mazda Mx-5 Cup on June 27th at the New Jersey Motorsports Park.  All race cars in the SCCA Pro Racing Mazda Mx-5 Cup are Comptech powered and prepared Mazda Racing Engines.  If you want to race jump into this series, it is competitive and fun.  Plus you get to jump behind a Comptech powered Mazda MX-5.  Hey Patrick Dempsey drove a Comptech powered Mazda, why can’t you?

Enough of the racing engine stuff.  Have you tried the new milk shake at Sunsplash Waterpark?  The new iceberg super thick award winning shake is something any racer needs to try.  Go to www.icebergdriveinn.com and check it out.  I love the super thick over the top strawberry milk shake.  It is so thick that you can tip it upside down and walk around for a little bit and it will not move.  Yes no straws, just a spoon.   Racing and Milk Shakes!!!!  WHAT IS THE BEST FOOD YOU HAVE EVER TRIED AT A RACE?

Sonoma Race With Goodyear

Jeff  and I had a good visit this week-end with Goodyear, as Penney Racing is the exclusive short track rep. for Goodyear west of the Mississippi.  At PRS we not only build quality race engines at our sister company Comptech Race Engines, but we distribute the Goodyear racing tire to short tracks throughout the west coast.  We met with our friends from Goodyear at the track in Sonoma while the K&N West series race was going on and the Nextel Cup was qualifying and practicing.  The K&N Pro Series was an exciting race to watch!

Comptech Finishes 496 CI Cobra Racing Engine

Comptech just finished building and dynoing a 496 CI all Aluminum Ford racing engine for a vintage Shelby Cobra that will race at numerous vintage touring events.  The race engine produced over 650 hp on the dyno.  At Comptech we pride ourselves in building specialty and unique high quality engines for many different types of race cars.  If you need your NSX, Mazda, Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge or any type of engine rebuilt by a team of experts call Comptech racing engines at 916-338-3434.  See you at the races.


This past week-end Eric Holmes of BMR racing, a local team from the Antelope / Sacramento, California area, won in Roseberg Oregon.  It is not just the race engine or race car or race car driver that wins, it is the whole team.  It is a team effort.  At Comptech Race Engines and Penney Racing Supply, we are proud that a local team such as BMR racing went to victory lane.  Holmes won the Nascar K&N Pro Series West Race at Roseberg Oregon, taking victory there for a third time.

At Penney racing supply and Comptech race engines we use that same team effort to produce high quality race winning engines.  Our goal is to win as many races as we can with our Comptech racing engines.  Not only do we build quality race engines, Penney Racing Supply (sister company to Comptech Race Engines) also is the west coast distributor of Goodyear short track racing tires.  We will see you out at Infineon Raceway to watch Holmes try to win another race in the Thunder Valley Casino Resort 200.  There Penney Racing Supply will also meet with our Goodyear friends.
