Started as Parts Finder International, PFI, basically as a parts middle man. I would find the parts, scour junkyards, anywhere I could find parts really, buy and then sell those parts. After building my first Honda CRX it morphed into building cars. We’ve introduced a lot of parts into the auto industry, helping it grow, bringing ideas to life. We work on keeping it fun. After being introduced into the Boosted Boiz Youtube videos we moved into making our own videos with the goal to teach and help others grow. Share the brands we’ve found reliable and keep it budget minded. Anyway we can share the fun all around while helping others build on their own. That’s where we are today. I love the excitement and bringing the excitement out in others. I love seeing others succeed with their projects and builds and getting to be a part of it all. We have so many clients that just really get me excited when I see them make their first pass at the track or beat that personal best time. The sense of community we are building makes this more than just a job, it’s our way of life. With the YouTube channel I enjoy teaching and connecting with people all over the world, before YouTube, we were a small town shop supporting local automotive enthusiasts. Being able to expand on that now and reach people anywhere is what keeps me going.
Oh man, I started young. My dad was a mechanic. I grew up racing go-karts, when I got my license I got into the high school drags at Bandimere. I started with a CRX, moved into Mustangs, then moved into SRT4’s. I have spent years teaching myself everything I can about building cars, any kind of car. When I met Brent it really changed the game for me, there was so much he was able to teach me. Learning the tuning process under him and all the different softwares to tune with became a passion for me.
I fell in love with the Honda CRX in 1996. My best friend had just gotten one. We drove from skate park to skate park, we practically lived in that car. Then in 99 started working for my brother in law Tony working on Muscle Cars, from there I started getting into fabrication. I just fell in love with it. Spent years building my brothers CRX. And just continued to grow from there. I met Brent in the early 2000’s through my buddies with their Honda Prelude. It started as hanging out with Brent all the time and years later here I am working for Brent with the freedom to fabricate some really unique and one of a kind things.
