MDR Performance Engines is your one-stop for automotive machining, engine building, and mechanical repairs for all vehicles. In addition we manufacture a full line of crate engines for hot rods, racers, and classic cars. Building on a long tradition of quality, our engines are currently powering vehicles around the globe.

Tracing our roots back to the early 1980s as a local Northern Virginia machine shop, MDR Engines has grown to become one of the premier engine builders on the East Coast.

Going hand-in-hand with our crate engine manufacturing, MDR offers full automotive machining services. Our AERA certified machinists are highly trained working with engines from the early 1900s to present day.

We take pride in everything we build, from restoring a priceless antique engine to building a modern-day 1000hp race engine. Our attention to detail and overall build quality sets us apart from the competition.

We are a proud member of the American Engine Rebuilder's Association.

Automotive Repairs and Maintenance

We offer full automotive repairs and maintenance on all vehicles and light trucks. Our experienced mechanics are able to handle all jobs large and small.

Classic and Antique Vehicles

Most of us own classics ourselves, so naturally the passion for older vehicles carries over into our work. We specialize in repairing and rebuilding classic and antique American cars and trucks. Be sure to check out our Gallery to see some of the neat vehicles we have worked on!
