Sinclair's High-Performance program is project-based and student-centered. Our students gain knowledge and skill in the AUT 2221 (High-Performance Engine Block & Heads) and AUT 2222 (High-Performance Engine Assembly & Dyno Testing) courses on how to develop an engine plan based on intended use, analyze engine tear down, cleaning, and inspection procedures, selection of engine components, machine to blueprint, and assembly of their own engine project. Students perform all services utilizing industry-standard equipment from companies like Sunnen, Rottler, Superflow, and others.
Our AUT 2224 (High Performance Fuel Induction Systems) course focuses on the tuning aspect of engines. The course covers carburation, electronic fuel injection tuning, nitrous oxide, superchargers, and turbochargers. Students will utilize Superflow and Mustang dynamometers during tuning as well as products from manufacturers such as Innovate Motorsports, AEM, Hypertech, and HP Tuners.
This short-term certificate provides in-depth, hands-on experiences in various areas of high-performance engines, an ideal choice to supplement a degree-seeking student wishing to specialize in the engine and fuel induction areas. The program is also designed to prepare students for the ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) engine machinist series. Courses are dedicated to specific areas of engine development: engine blocks, cylinder head and valve train, assembly and dynamometer testing. Fuel systems for performance engines are covered as well.
Career opportunities are available in positions for automotive service technicians in dealerships, independent shops, motor sports businesses and automotive machine shops. In addition, graduates are also employed as service managers, parts managers, sales representatives or motor sports specialist.
Students can obtain a certification in the ASE area of Engine Machinist.
