We Build Champions
At BOE, we have a long resume with both successful race programs and asphalt shredding street cars. Our Engines, Superchargers, Tuning, and Chassis components, in addition to our program consultation can be found in champion Solo SCCA, SCCA Road Course, NASA Pro Racing, HSR, Lotus Cup, Lotus Challenge, and more!
We have been a leader in 2ZZ-GE Engine development being the first on the planet to use Nickel-Silicon plating in the engine bores and alternate rod ratios on the OE dimension crank. We helped to bring solid rockers to the 2ZZ platform and we're the only providers and developers of a fully integrated software suite that unlocks the highly capable Lotus ECUs. When it comes to testing, innovation, complex builds, and technical consultation, we pride ourselves on being a global leader in the Lotus space.

Meet the Team
Andrew (Bud): The Boss.
Andrew, or Bud, is the shop chief wizard, project manager, engineer, and part of the ownership team of BOE. He's often the one you'll talk with when you have tech questions. We do suggest that if you have a complex question, you wait until he has had his morning coffee. He can be a bit gruff prior to getting his first caffeine fix for the day. When you book your next build, you can be sure that Andrew will have a hand on the entire project. He has a keen eye for detail and a great passion for excellence.
Jason (Willie): Chief Technician and Fabricator
Jason, or Willie, has his hands in all facets of the shop, but spends the majority of his time manipulating raw aluminum into intricate parts. He's also and expert technician and can fix anything Lotus. He typically has a cup of tea in one hand, which has helped him hone in his 6th sense of of using his mind to bend metal.
Josh (Big Josh): Chief Parts Breaker
Josh's official role is a catch-all at BOE. He can be found doing anything from packaging goods to be shipped, receiving, or assisting in working on the cars. He's a rather big chap that struggles to manage is extraordinary strength--so he's also the guy who is only allowed to take parts off the cars, as he will break any wrench, vise, ratchet, bolt, etc in the process of tightening it. Josh accepts tips in the form of libation.
Mr. Jim: Wiring Guy and Widget Man
Jim has his own Lotus and is the chief tinkerer and wiring man. If there's tinkering to be done or harnesses to make, he's the man for the job!
Todd (Flying Todd): Engine Guy and Technician
Todd is Flying Todd because he's fast on the track. He drives a Porsche 944 with an LS swap, and despite those deficiencies, he's still a worthy foe on the esses! Todd assists in the Engine Room and working on the Lotus cars with a particular emphasis in chassis setup.
