Applied Flow Technology - Competition Cylinder Heads
Applied Flow Technology began in 1990 - but the seeds were planted much earlier. Mark Atkins, the founder of A.F.T. began repairing and modifying sports cars in the mid 1970's. He continued honing his mechanical skills through the balance of that decade and into the next while campaigning a small block Chevrolet powered drag car which ultimately ran high nine second E.T.'s at over 133 M.P.H. in the quarter mile. This car he completely built himself, including the engine and chassis. It was early experiences with subcontracted machine work of substandard quality which prompted Mark to begin doing the work himself. With the purchase of some simple valve equipment and a flow bench in 1990 Applied flow Technology was born. Since that time A.F.T. has steadily acquired both valuable experience and state of the art equipment to assure you of the best possible accuracy and performance. Our race record spans the gamut from 2 SCCA runoff wins in the GT category to multiple wins in the 358 modified class at the Syracuse mile track. Our heads and manifolds set the standard wherever they compete. While Applied Flow Technology is best known for our race winning dirt and asphalt stock car inductions, we have also produced heads for everything from 600 plus horsepower Hondas to 12 cylinder Ferraris. We are currently in the early stages of development on Ducati motorcycle head modifications, an area of the business in which we hope to see significant growth in the coming years. There is very little you can dream up that we cannot handle successfully. Along with cylinder head machining, porting and flow development we also offer complete aluminum head welding and repair. We routinely machine custom valves, seats and guides to customer's specifications. We also perform port modifications, which are subsequently disguised, as well as stock appearing, if needed. While the main thrust of business at Applied Flow Technology is and always will focus on cylinder heads, our capabilities extend well beyond those areas. We have a Hines computerized spin balancer to handle any engine balancing need. We also do custom piston and block machining for our customers. Call us with all your performance/competition machining needs.
