Maztech
Tampa, FL
813-874-0937


i know a little bit about cars so im not completely brainless on it but ive never owned a rotory engine automobile. Im trying to get as much information as possiable about the car before i get it so i dont have to go look for it later when something happens.
the only shop i have trusted was maztech jeff doesnt do aftermarket he hates it and he's very fair with pricing on work, quality i say 10/10

I have met Kilo and his son several times at the Lakeland Track, I would love to have Kilo do the work but I also know how busy he is and have heard of things sitting there for a while. But then again... Im not really in a hurry...

This man did the swap, not only that he made all kinds of custom parts for the swap. He is always coming up with really cool ideas and putting them into our cars. He revamped my cooling system and now my car never goes over 180.

He makes some really cool go fast parts that are totally custom and 1 of a kind, like ported throttle bodies, cold air intakes for FD's, ported intake tracks. He also makes a rear diff brace for FC's, after breaking 2 of my rear diff mounts and then putting in his brace, no more broken mounts.

His shop is called

Just Racing Fabrications
he is in Port St. Lucie Florida right off the Turnpike.
His name is JR and his number is
(772) 343-0510


He is honest to a fault, and will not rip you off, if your into using old parts for rebuilds and "just getting it together until the next rebuild" do not bother with this guy unless you want to buy the crappy old parts he will not put into our cars.

Remember he is a one man shop and does all his work custom and himself. He is not fast he is not the cheapest, but if you want it done ONCE and done right he is the man to go to.

He has been messing with Rotaries since the late 70's road racing 1st gen RX7's and setting up customers cars.

He also makes custom roll cages that compliment the cars by adding rigidness to it picking up on its chassis weak points and stiffening it up.
Wanted to thank you for pointing me to JR. My car's nearing end of build and I am super happy / impressed with JR's work. Super straight forward guy and knows his ****. Very happy with him. Click project link in my sig to see my build to date.

Jesus is much quicker than any other shop that worked on my 20B. What he did in a couple of months, others took over a year and still didn't finish.

I just moved down here and brining my car down from Nashville. I'm looking for a shop near Tampa, Gainesville, or Orlando that can do some maintenance work, suspension work (bushing instal), and troubleshooting. I won't be down here for long and I don't have the tools to do the work.

Kilo Racing in Orlando:
9793 S Orange Blossom Trail
Orlando, FL 32837-8997
(407) 438-5467

Jesus Padilla does the absolute best high quality work at a great price. He saved my 4 year 3 rotor conversion project and I wouldn't think of going anywhere else.

Yes he can this as well. If he can't figure it out, he has an AC guy right around the corner.

Contact Jesus Padilla at Kilo Racing in Orlando. He's in the process of moving his shop to St. Cloud which I think would be closer to you than his present location.

His number: 407-438-5467

Guys I live on the Mississippi coast and need a good rotary mechanic to look at my 7. Who is the closest that is a good mechanic and won't jerk me around? I have seen several shops listed in the central FL region but wondered if there is anyone closer. Thanks.
