|Tech and Tuning Tips
Our love of power, muscle cars, hot rods, drag racing, and pure performance began a long time ago.
VHP CHEVY POWERED AUSTIN HEALEY
In the 1970s and early 80s,
built performance engines and packages, from Sportsmen Class to Pro Stock Class,
producing some of the strongest horsepower per cubic inch engines. VHP also
built and tuned
SUV's and other
street machines, from simple performance upgrades and tuning to superchargers
and nitrous oxide.
Being no stranger to the power of fuel injection, it came as no surprise when electronic fuel injection became the standard of modern vehicles. During this time, we used our fuel injection and tuning experience to produce some of the most horsepower per cubic inch power packages available for the Corvette and F-Body.
In 1995, VHP was the first on the East coast to install an in-ground Dynojet Chassis Dynamometer. This allowed us to showcase the horsepower and torque we can produce, as well as squeeze out some more by being even more accurate on dialing in the fuel and timing curves. Since then, all of VHP's power packages and power products are developed on the chassis dynamometer and each package installed at our facility begins with a baseline and ends with a dial in on the dyno. We also test each vehicle under real driving conditions, i.e. hood closed and vehicle at operating temperature.
VHP also tests products for several manufacturers and performance entities, such as Yella Terra, Crane Cams, AFR, Bassani Xhaust, Corsa, Holley, Ecklers, JBA, Borla, GHL, CNC Cylinder Heads, Random Technology, and have been actively involved in the research and development of many of these manufacturers products. In 1995 Roger's son Joe joined him bringing a fresh new dimension to the business.
In 2007 Crane Cams turned over the New Product Development Program to VHP. Roger Vinci, as New Product Development Manager & Program Manager, Joe Vinci, as Race Event Manager and Greg Warner as Dyno and Spintron Facility manager, focused all their efforts to help develop Cranes' aggressive new product program. Under the guidance of Roger and the team, Crane was able to bring 72 new products to fruition, over a two year period.
In 2010 VHP joined forces with Yella Terra Performance, one of the leading world wide manufacturers of performance valvetrain products. Joe became US Sales and Marketing Manager for the international company and Roger became the US Product Development Manager. Together they have helped bring the Yella Terra LS Market to the forefront of the industry. Yella Terra is undoubtedly the premier manufacturer of "bolt-on" performance shaft mount rocker arms in the world today.
Together the legend, Roger, Joe, Joe's, son Connor and the rest of the crew continue the pursuit of power. With our fuel injection and computer controlled car experience, we were able to pioneer performance power packages for the L-98, LT1, LT4, LT5, LS1,LS6, LS2 and the new LS3 / L92 / LS7 powered vehicles. Staying consistent with VHP's philosophy of producing the most horsepower per cubic inch, we have developed our power packages to utilize stock displacement and our expertise in dialing in the finished product.
VHP and Crane went separate ways. VHP
continued to pioneer new performance products and soon began manufacturing the
finest quality performance Valvetrain products available anywhere in the world.
We continue this practice today and intend to well into the future. Check out
our US steel billet, rifle drilled, induction hardened, CNC built camshafts, and
specially matched valvetrain accessories on this website.
