They specialize in suface engineered components for Indy car
and F-1 racing engines. Their cylinder plating process is
available for both 2 & 4-stroke engines, and can be used
for the repair of damaged cylinder walls, and for high performance
reconditioning process that APTEC employs differs greatly
from similar services offered by competitors. The competitions'
process evolved from the shiney chrome business that hasn't
changed since the turn of the century. The APTEC process
originated in aerospace and is proven in Indy car and F-1
racing. The APTEC process uses a proprietary formulation
of ceramic composite named APTICOTE 2000.
APTEC's process is
computer controlled and offers many different advantages over
competitors. Every cylinder is diamond finished, the port
edges are polished, the gasket surfaces are lapped on a surface
plate, and the cylinder is thermal shock tested for plating
adhesion. Aptec Motorsport's competitors don't have the machine tools
or the technical expertise to offer optional services like
exhaust valve service and cylinder head reconditioning. APTEC offers these services for a reasonable price, plus APTEC carries a stock of exhaust valve parts and gaskets.
APTEC guarantees your reconditioned cylinder with a limited
warranty for parts and labor. APTEC offers a quick
turn-around mail-order service to dealers, home based mechanics,
