Engine Builder Duel



What Is It?

The COMP Cams® Engine Builder Duel presented by Snap-On Tools pits a pair of two-person teams in a head-to-head race to see which one can completely assemble and crank a Small Block Chevy engine in the shortest amount of time.

How Does It Work?

Armed with nothing but their wits and a handful of supplied tools, teams must run their completed engine for one full minute to be named the winner. COMP Cams® technical advisors are on hand, but no participant may ask questions of anyone in the audience.

The Engine Builder Duel is a crowd favorite everywhere it’s held. Because it is both entertaining and educational, the contest engages automotive enthusiasts and casual observers alike. Participants of every knowledge level have competed in the past. It is the teams with engine building experience though that set the records.

Where Will It Be Next?

The COMP Cams® Engine Builder Duel visits some of the most popular automotive events throughout the U.S., including the Hot Rod Power Tour and Street Machine Nationals in Du Quoin, IL and St. Paul, MN.
