“MAHLE has been with us since the beginning,” said Doug Yates, president & CEO, Roush Yates Engines. “We have collaborated on numerous projects over the past 14 years, developing the best products and results in the industry. MAHLE always strives to be the best in the industry, making them a very valuable partner to Roush Yates Engines.”
The alliance between Roush Yates Engines and MAHLE was formed in 2004, with the engine parts manufacturer contributing to the design and development of Roush Yates products.
“MAHLE’s focus on quality is evident in all their products we receive,” noted Brett Manwill, reliability manager, Roush Yates Engines. “MAHLE has leveraged their experience making millions of parts each year to develop processes and procedures to ensure that every product that we receive is exactly what we expect. This quality is critical to ensure that each engine we build performs as intended and provides our race teams the power, performance, and reliability on race day. MAHLE products are the total package. They deliver ultimate performance, consistent quality and dependability.”
MAHLE products are an integral part of the Ford FR9 V8 NASCAR race engine, twin-turbo Ford EcoBoost V-6 and Ford Mustang 5.2-liter V-8 road race engine, as well as the Roush Yates Engines RY45 V-8 purpose-built engine.
“The relationship we continue to maintain with everyone at Roush Yates Engines is very special to us, and remains one of the longest-running partnerships we have in the sport,” said Jon Douglas, president of MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. “Although these two companies officially only go back to 2004, the relationship dates much further back to the days when Robert was tearing up tracks as an engine builder and owner on his way to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. We are both committed to quality, technology and innovation; and we look toward many years of success together.”
