I own and operate Acme Speed Shop located in Greenville, SC. I rebuild MG and Triumph engine for street performance and race, and rebuild modded SU carbs,, and offer engine rebuilding kits with free tech advice for the DIYer. I've been racing and rebuilding these MGs,and Triumphs for 30 years now. I raced Spitfire, MGBs and Midgets in the SCCA, and now race a MGB in vintage racing.

My specialtiy and what I tend to try to help folks with questions on the forum are topics about engine rebuilding and repair, SU carbs.
