BRADENTON T&DElma,NY – When your making close to 3000 horsepower and turning over 10,000 rpm’s, the valve train of an engine becomes very important to a team like Mike Janis Racing and his 2014 NHRA Pro Modified Camaro. For this very reason, Mike Janis and his team choose nothing but the best: and the best to them is T&D Machine Products Rocker Arms. Mike Janis Racing is very pleased to announce that T&D Rocker Arms has been added to their list of partners for the 2014 racing season.

“When your in this engine building business you are looking for every bit of horsepower and reliability you can squeeze out of a part,” said Mike Janis, Owner/Driver at MJR. “We have been using the T&D Hemi Rocker Arm set-up since 2006 and haven’t looked back. At our Jan-Cen Racing Engines dyno facility we have dynoed various systems, and in the end T&D remains at the top of our list. We have worked very closely with T&D on many different designs and have really been pleased with everything they do. These guys have a first class operation, the pricing is great and the availability of parts is even better. The innovation never stops and that is what makes this company so valuable in the market place. We are very excited that they see this as a great opportunity to be a part of our organization and really help drive home some new business for them,” said Janis.

“T&D Machine Products is extremely excited to be involved with Mike Janis and his Pro Modified race team,” said Larry Tores, Owner at T&D Machine Products. “Janis and Jan-Cen Racing Engines have been long time users of T&D shaft-mount roller rockers, and the cooperation between our two companies has been an extremely good one for many years, We at T&D look forward to that relationship to continue, for Mike Janis himself to have further success in Pro Modified,” said Tores


About T&D Machine Products Rocker Arms
Screen Shot 2014-02-09 at 8
T&D Machine Products has been manufacturing specialized components for racing since 1975. A successful drag racer and small business owner, Larry Tores founded the company in his back yard garage, starting with better pieces for his own racecars, spreading to machining similar items for his friends, and moving into components for major motorsports manufacturers.  One of these product lines was shaft-mount roller rocker systems. Tores, a many time NHRA event winner, and other competitors proved the merit of the firm’s rocker systems. In the early 1980s T&D was called upon to develop valve train components for Buick’s stock block V-6 engine program which eventually established new performance standards at the Indy 500 and in Busch Grand National competition.  The success of this and other programs led to requests from engine builders from every form of motorsports for T&D to engineer similar shaft-mount roller rocker arm systems for the powerplants they were developing and racing. It wasn’t long before T&D Machine Products was only producing rocker arms.

Elma, NY – Mike Janis Racing, Inc. (MJR) has announced today that current team partner Line2Line Coatings of Clarkston, Michigan has stepped up and will be a major associate partner of the team for the entire 2014 NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing season. Line2Line Coatings started their relationship with MJR back in 2007 and has since grown over the years.

“This is an exciting way to start the 2014 season for us here at MJR,” said Mike Janis Jr., GM/Crew Chief at MJR. “It is no secret that without great partners, there is no possible way we could be on the track and be as successful as we have been. For Line2Line Coatings to see the value and scale which we can add to their business really makes it all worth it. We have worked very closely with Andy Suman, Owner/President of Line2Line Coatings for the last seven years to help him test all of his companies great products and ideas.  Line2Line Coatings specializes in coatings which they have developed in-house that have really let us push our Jan-Cen Racing Engines/Mike Janis Superchargers engines to the absolute max. We not only have seen a horsepower gains with these products, but we have seen these parts living much longer, (pistons, rotors, etc.).  These Abradable Powder Coatings (APC) developed by Line2Line Coatings have not only helped our team, but we have been able to spread it to all of our customers at Jan-Cen Racing Engines. Anytime you can see an increase in horsepower and also the additional life of an engine part, there is no better solution than that. This is the reason Line2Line’s APC is the only way to go in the coating market,” said Janis Jr.

Rear Trailer“Back when we introduced Abradable Powder Coatings, many racers were skeptical about clearance coatings and reluctant to try something new,” said Andy Suman, Owner/President of Line2Line.  “Right away, Mike Janis Racing saw the potential and gave Line2Line Coatings our first shot in a huge power, top flight racing program. Ever since, we have had a great time and learned a ton working with Jan-Cen Racing Engines & Mike Janis Superchargers. Now that APC™ is more widely known, it’s only logical to ramp up our partnership with Mike Janis Racing and really get the word out on APC. It’s a huge honor to associate our coatings with Jan-Cen Racing Engines world class reputation and technical leadership. We wish them the best in 2014 and look forward to helping them get into the winner’s circle,” said Suman.
