Honesty: ACE Racing Engines– Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

ACE Engines, for our Customer Spotlight on Honesty, an Interfanatic Quality

It’s impossible to do business for long without consistent honesty. You know who knows that? Engine builders who have lasted. You know who doesn’t know that? Fly-by-night racing folks.

You want a 2000hp engine for your drag car? No problem, go to my man Stef at ACE Racing Engines. I have no qualms recommending him because he’s honest. Not all engine builders are.

ACE Racing Engines: Producing High Horsepower Drag Racing Engines, Honestly

Stef Rossi is extremely passionate about his work: creating reliable yet powerful racing engines. In recent years, he’s begun to focus on LS and LSX drag racing engines for extremely fast quarter mile runs. Does your car need a two thousand horsepower engine? No problem, Stef will build it for you. Are you looking for three thousand hp? Stef at ACE Racing Engines is your man.

They recommend you call before ordering. That said, his website is set up to take orders to get exactly the engine you want, the way you need it. Racing engines are finicky, so it’s probably a good idea to call Stef or Laura to hash out the fine details and make sure what you want will get you where you want to go in the time you want to get there.

We help them by managing their site and helping them work on SEO a bit. When Stef came to me, he was already doing a great job on SEO. But we had a look at some of the terms he finds important and found ways to tackle those keywords and keyphrases to move his site up the SERPs.

Honesty: An Interfanatic Quality

Honest people don’t hide their actions.

Emily Brontë

Hiding from the truth will get you places for a little bit. But not for over twenty years. There’s no benefit in dishonesty – not if you want long-term results. And we want long-term results.

A 7-second quarter mile may not seem like long term results, but getting that seven second pull every time you go out with a decent launch is the holy grail from some drag racers. For that reason, Stef Rossi of ACE Racing Engines is honest with his customers and provides reliable and complete dyno sheets so there’s never a question they’re getting what they paid for.

We’ve had to deal with dishonest people through the years – from both sides. It’s not pleasant. We want to create a welcoming, productive environment with which we can thrive with our customers. For that reason, we stick with honesty.

Sincerity: ACE Racing Engines – Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

ACE Racing Engines, for our Customer Spotlight on Sincerity, an Interfanatic Quality

Sincerity is sexy, and my cynical heart notices.

Nicola Yoon

Sincerity in love is necessary for a lasting relationship. Of course, this is all true in business, too.

And racing.

As in every business, there are many fly-by-nights with lofty claims and broken promises. You know who that does not describe? Stef Rossi and his ACE Racing Engines. You want a 2,000 horsepower engine? He’ll deliver that to you. Reliable, 2,000hp. Seriously.

And you know what else is sexy? Reliable 2000hp+ engines.

There’s a lot of cynicism in the auto industry, especially where horsepower braggadocio is concerned. And there’s a great deal of cynicism in business for all the same reasons. Like Rossi at ACE Engines, we at Interfanatic work hard to ensure our claims are sincere.

Sincerity: An Interfanatic Quality

We haven’t gotten where we are without sincerity. Now, don’t get me wrong, we’re not infallible. We don’t always get things right, but when we get it wrong, we work sincerely to fix it. We want our customers to know we mean what we say, and we stand by our work.

An example: we recently took over the management of a website for a customer. They asked us to make all of the appropriate updates, as they were severely overdue. Unfortunately, the site was so out-of-date that “routine updates” broke the site. Rather than giving up or throwing the problem back to the customer, we took care of it. It took a lot more time, but we did the job right. We did what we told the customer we would do. And, we did it all on-budget.

We worked to our word.

ACE Racing Engines: Sincerity in Race Engine Builders

My old friend Carroll Smith used to tell me, “horsepower sells engines, but torque wins races.” Stefan Rossi of ACE Racing Engines knows this.

You know what else sells engines? Results. Less talk and more action. An engines that does one dyno run at 2,124 hp at 7,500 RPM and then grenades passing the 1/8th mile marker: the racing engine world is filled with those. Stef Rossi doesn’t do that. He’s sincere with his claims. And the results of his engines speak sincerely for him.

Stef Rossi builds LS, LSX and turbo LSX engines to customer spec. His engine shop is cleaner looking than many hospitals. He employs the latest technology to ensure precision, and the results are reliable, safe, and incredibly powerful engines with tractable, usable power.

The result: customers sincerely singing this Southern California race engine builder’s praises.

“ACE Racing Engines are sincere with their claims. And the results of their engines speak sincerely for them.”

So next time you’re in the market for a two-thousand horsepower racing engine, call up Stef. If he doesn’t already have exactly what you need, he’ll build it exactly as you want. And I say that sincerely.

Interfanatic Service Focus: Interfanatic Power Social Media Advertising

We talked a little about our social media last week. When you’re ready to take social media seriously, you have the option to significantly increase your reach with Social Media Advertising.

There’s a few ways to do this. The method everyone unrealistically depends upon is choosing to expect their great post will “go viral” and attract millions of viewers overnight. In reality, this is akin to playing the lottery. It happens often enough for people to think it will happen, but almost never demand.

Another is to take your most successful posts and show them to a broader audience through boosting. If your posts are topical, or time dependent, this might not work as well as you’d hoped. So what we do is we take elements of your most successful posts, create fresh ones that will last, and get them in front of more people through highly targeted boosting.

Social Media platforms have made a business of making sure your posts only go to a very small, hyper specific audience. You want your posts seen by people that don’t know your brand? They’ll do that, but you gotta pay ’em. There’s a certain amount of sincerity that comes with that good ol’ American dollar.

So, do you want to trust the platform to spend your money, or do you want to have some professionals make sure your investment is handled carefully, efficiently? Well, that’s where we come in. We’re here to help.

Interfanatic: Sincere Work Toward Your Goals

We’re here for you. We apply our talents to your problems daily to help you accomplish your goals. It doesn’t happen in one day. Progress takes time. We’ll be around to make sure we’re moving your project to your version of success. Every day. We wake up to work for you.

I was driving down the road, on the way home from a meeting with a client, and the light was just gorgeous. I had to stop and try to capture it. There’s something about the road disappearing into the hills and the golden hour light shimmering through the eucalyptus I found magical that day. The light at the end of the tunnel.
