Arron with Jay Leno

Arron with Jay Leno

Back in 2002 I began working on a series of videos to show people how to build engines, how nitrous oxide works, how superchargers and forced induction work, how to port heads and intake manifolds, how to rebuild and tune performance carburetors, and several other topics. These weren't your average videos... no. These were highly detailed videos that left out nothing as far as details go. Most were multi-disc sets over 5 hours in length, and the one on how to build performance engines and strokers was over 11 hours on 5 separate DVDs showing you every little detail and procedure, all the way down to what kind of components to use (or not use), including lubes, sealers, tricks and trade secrets that only master engine builders know. 

I first debuted the video series called "Power Building Videos" at the 2005 SEMA show where they got rave reviews by some of the top people in the industry. Warehouses and outlets throughout the US, Australia and beyond picked up the series, including places like Summit Racing Equipment, Competition Products, Jeg's High Performance, Speedway Motors, Rocket Industries, Eastwood, The AAM Group (Parts Pro stores) and a whole slew of others, plus TV shows like PowerBlock TV, Inside Drag Racing, TRUCKS!, and several others featured the series as well. 

I later decided to change the name of the series to Auto Shop Videos and continued to sell them under that brand name for a number of years until I sold the brand to Competition Products who still sell them today. Click HERE for a direct link to the page on their website that sells them.

Aside from being featured on the shows, I got a call one day in my shop from Jay Leno and actually hung up on him because I thought it was just someone playing a joke on me. Seconds later the phone rang again and the voice said; "Arron! Don't hang up! This really IS Jay Leno!" and sure enough, it was Jay who called to invite me on his TV show called Jay Leno's Garage because he had seen one of the videos and thought they were so well done that he wanted to help spread the word about them. This video is Jay and I together at Jay's world famous garage and car collection down in Burbank, talking about the video series. The video quality isn't very good because it's a copy of a copy from the days of video "tape".

And this video interview was shot at the debut of my video series at the 2005 SEMA show that was televised on Ion Network and several others.
