Summer is in full swing July 7, 2009

Hello again!  With all of the hustle and bustle of the summer months we have fallen behind our monthly schedule for the newsletter.  Over the past month we have finalized 2 new gaskets, performed upgrades on our CNC machine, and stared work on a SEMA project car.  
We are also working on our own race cars to prepare for Norwalk which is just 5 short weeks away.  This year we hope to have a new car/combo together for the event.  We are very excited about this years event and it is expected to be bigger and better than ever!  
Keep those wrenches turning (I know we will!) and we will see you at Norwalk, August 7th, 8th, and 9th.

Tin Indian Performance Pontiac Cam ButtonWe are now making our own cam buttons and crank bolt washers.  Both of these new products have a black oxide coating on them for corrosion protection. 
Crank washers fit inside all Pontiac balancers without modifications - unlike the ARP washer.
CF-71 Freedom Bird rendering We have joined a conglomeration of other vendors to participate in the building of Ty Ingle's CF-71 Freedom Bird.   Tin Indian Performance has joined forces with Kauffman Racing Equipment to build a 440 cid power plant that will be as unique as the car itself!

Check out the CF-71 Freedom Bird page for more details on the build......
