Question 1: Guess what line of high performance engines has been the most popular for us in 2018.

Answer: FORD! 

That's right Chevy lovers! Maybe the owner being a Mustang fanatic sways our marketing? In any case the most popular selling engine we have offered so far in 2018 has been the big blue oval!

Question 2: Guess what engine inside this line has been the most popular.

Answer: 408 stroker small block!

Ohhh we love to see this. 302's and 351W's are great, but there's nothing like the horsepower and torque gains from a Scat stroker crankshaft and Dart Pro 1 heads. Our customers certainly have the 'show,' but they also have the 'go' to back it up!

Question 3: Guess what build level has been the most popular.

Answer: Complete and Dyno Tested!

Man, we have some smart customers! For 2018 more people have bought our Complete and Dyno Tested build than any other. Out of the box reliability? Check. Proven performance? Check. Plug it in and have some fun!

Question 4: Approximately how many engines does Tri Star build in a YEAR? (based on current capacity)

Answer: 5,000-9,999!

We don't just build bad ass engines, we build a lot of them! Our current production capacity is just over 6,100 engines a year! Over 6k engines and we still have the best service in the industry? We'll thank our employees for that one.

Question 5: Where was Tri Star founded?

Answer: Plum City, Wisconsin!

It looks like we stumped even some long time Tri Star fans with this one. Our original production facility was founded in a little town of about 500 people called Plum City over 30 years ago in 1988! We have inhabited two different facilities in Baldwin, the first of which we moved to almost 22 years ago, but it all started in that little town. Maybe that's what helps us keep our small town service.

Question 5: How long has Tri Star been a member of the Production Engine Remanufacturers Association?

Answer: Over 20 years!

We've been a proud member of PERA for over 20 years. This organization means so much to us because (as you've probably seen in previous emails) it really separates the true high volume engine remanufacturers from smaller rebuilders. The owner is a past president of PERA and our general manager is currently on the board of directors!

Question 5: How many American workers are employed at Tri Star Engines?

Answer: 51-80!

AND PROUD OF IT! We currently have just over 70 amazing team members in production and the office. If there's one thing we're passionate about (and you can tell it from our marketing) it's American made products, and we've been MADE IN AMERICA since day 1 in 1988.
