About Us

While Diesel Doctor, our drive-in facility, started by an inability to find great technicians to diagnose.
Choate Engineering Performances’ engine department actually started much in the same manner.

If you have listened to any of our podcasts  (and if you haven’t, check our podcasts here), you may have heard us reference machine shop frustrations.

Let me put it this way, imagine going down into the Grand Canyon while trusting someone to hold the rope for you hundreds of feet suspended over the ledge. 

It may sound like an over-exaggeration, but  it’s a very applicable example of what it’s like trusting a machine shop to make sure that all tolerances, clearances, and specifications are correct.

You spend a tremendous amount of time, especially on a diesel engine, to reassemble it. Many times calling for cab removal to install it. The last thing you want to do is get it all back together just to find that the machine shop, the one you trusted in, let go of the proverbial rope. 

Having found ourselves in that exact situation, and with no help from the machine shops we dealt with we made a decision.

We would hold our own rope!

We either would completely get out of this business or we would invest thousands and thousands of dollars into what is one of the top machine shops in the country.

And so we threw our efforts and finances into what is now known as “Choate Engineering Performance”.

Today, we offer you the amazing capabilities we always wanted
the machine shops we dealt with to have, but they
would never make the required investment.

With 4 and 5 axis capabilities as well as flow bench and testing equipment we can handle anything that comes through our doors! Assuring that quality control stays in our hands and in-house we are happy and secure in the knowledge that each engine that ships out all over the country has met or exceeded the high standards we have for it.
