Little Shop of Tricks

Stanke Motorsports, a family-run shop in Little Canada, Minnesota, offers a variety of specialty tools and products to streamline your engine assembly workflow. Some call it the best-kept secret in the drag racing industry, with Mopar® projects competing in the NHRA for half a century. Founder Roger Stanke, along with sons Jeff and Jim, specializes in the third-generation HEMI® engine and draws in builders that might not have the budget for something custom-made. Stanke Motorsports is known for its hasty problem-solving, once famously saving the day for “Big Daddy” Don Garlits and his Dodge Challenger Drag Pak between rounds. This list of hard-to-find parts for a third-generation HEMI engine will have you slapping your forehead and wondering why you didn’t think of it first.
