K&N is sponsoring Joliet Junior College and will send K&N shirts, hats and banners for the group. Each team consists of five students and one instructor. The groups tear down identically prepared small block Chevy engines the way pit crews do at drag races.
High School and Junior College Teams will compete at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois
Students have to disassemble engines using hand tools. Air cleaner, carb, distributor wires, spark plugs, manifold, headers, heads, lifters, rocker arms, push rods, timing chains and covers, along with K&N oil filters, oil pans, oil pumps and all eight pistons come off. The cams and cranks remain in the engine blocks.
The teams then reassemble under correct assembly procedures and torque specs under the watchful eyes of judges and spectators. There are penalties for dropped components, improper tear downs, rebuilds and improper sportsmanship. After the engine reassembly is complete they must fire up and run.
The Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge will take place at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois.
