EMPI ENGINE BATTLE SYNOPSIS

EMPI will conduct an engine build / dyno challenge open to US based EMPI dealers in good standing that have purchased EMPI parts in the previous 12 months

Using specified EMPI components, and other parts of their choice, competitors will build a naturally aspirated Type 1 engine to deliver maximum HP on a Stuska 800 engine dyno.

The EMPI Engine Battle will be conducted on a regional basis with Eastern, Central and Western competitions; dealers’ physical business location will determine the region they will compete in.
Regional winners and first runners-up will qualify for the EMPI Engine Battle Championship to be held at the EMPI Open House in Anaheim, CA on June 15th 2024 and all competitor engines will be on display for 3500 Classic VW enthusiasts to see!

Cash prizes will be awarded at each regional competition and the Champion will receive the following:                                                   

  • Tremendous bragging rights    
  • A check from EMPI for $15,000 (EMPI will purchase the Champion engine).
  • The Champion engine and winners logo will be displayed prominently in the EMPI booth at SEMA 2024.
  • EMPI Engine Battle Cape and Crown to wear proudly and display at their shop.
  • Rights to use the EMPI Engine Battle Champion 2024 logo in their marketing.                

EMPI will promote the Engine Battle on the empius.com website, all EMPI social media channels including Instagram (150K followers) Facebook (55K followers) YouTube (11K subscribers) and in US-based EMPI print advertising in HotVWs and VW Trends (75K paid circulation) for a media reach of over 280,000 monthly impressions
