Erik Koenig - Founding Owner
Erik Koenig is a name that is very familiar with those in the LS community. Erik is no stranger to making serious HP and engines that last. Many companies will state their builders and assembly people went to the School of Automotive Machinists (SAM), not many can say theirs was an instructor at the school and taught many at other shops across the country. Erik's own designs and exclusive parts are what sets HPR apart from the rest. Erik works very closely with the major companies in the auto industry like Wiseco, Callies, K1, and Sonny Bryant to develop new designs for engine components. Most recently Erik ran his own engine business HKE for over 15 years before joining forces, starting HPR to develop new products and decrease turn around time on engine builds.
