Katech Performance crate engine packages promise enhanced horsepower, torque and durability, with many unique configurations available to meet individual needs and budgets – including four exciting "Attack" packages in the company’s "LS7 Arsenal" for outputs from 575 to well beyond 600 horsepower.

Cylinder cases, cylinder heads and engine internal components – including crankshafts, pistons, camshafts, intake valves, valve springs, retainers, throttle bodies and adjustable belt tensioners – also are part of the Katech Performance lineup that includes valve covers, coil relocation brackets and fuel rail spacers.

"We’ve earned the trust and respect of racing’s top competitors, lap after lap after lap, for more than 30 years," said Caleb Newman, vice president, director of engineering, Katech Performance. "The engineering, manufacturing, assembly and testing personnel that contribute to Katech’s race-winning heritage are the same that design and build our aftermarket engines and parts."

Since 1978, Katech Inc. has captured more than 50 driver’s and manufacturer’s championships competing in the world’s most prestigious racing leagues, including the SCCA SPEED World Challenge, American Speed Association (ASA), International Motor Sports Association (IMSA), American Le Mans Series (ALMS) and NASCAR.

Katech’s legacy also is deeply rooted in automotive endurance racing with multiple class wins in the renowned 12 Hours of Sebring, 24 Hours of Daytona and 24 Hours of Le Mans.

"And we’re the best source for airflow and engine development as well as technical support services including boring, honing, fabrication, welding, dyno tuning and prototype parts."

House Subcommittee Votes to Approve REPAIR Act

The REPAIR Act will now go before the full House Energy and Commerce Committee for consideration.

Members of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Innovation, Data, and Commerce unanimously voted to advance the Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair (REPAIR) Act (H.R. 906) to the full Energy and Commerce Committee for consideration.

Building on two recent congressional hearings and last week’s White House roundtable on Right to Repair, this support from Congress is a promising step forward in codifying vehicle data access protections – as part of the broader right to repair movement – in federal law. The bill was introduced in the House of Representatives in February this year by Congressmen Neal Dunn, Brendan Boyle and Warren Davidson as well as Congresswoman Marie Gluesenkamp Perez, the only repair shop owner in Congress. Since then, it has gained an additional 40-plus bipartisan cosponsors.
