Twin Turbo 427

The name NELSON RACING ENGINES has become synonymous with extreme horsepower applications.

When professional car builders and car owners are looking to "push the envelope" of power and drivability, they call on NRE.

Whether looking for 2,000hp+ race application, or a 1,500hp street application, NRE has been building turn-key solutions for super motors since 1996.

Put simply - we are gear-heads. We love high-horsepower performance and always have. It began with the question: "What if…?" and turned into a quest to squeeze every inch of power using innovative thinking combined with proven theory.

Nelson Racing Engines opened their doors in 1995. Since then, owner Tom Nelson creates combinations with the passion he had when building hot rods as a teen for his friends. "That's what keeps us at our best. There is so much to learn. I'm always a student," says Tom. "I eat, sleep, and breathe my profession and want to provide my customers with the best that I can offer. There is nothing more satisfying than getting to know my customer and setting out to achieve his (or her!) goals. It's what gets me up in the morning."
