About Skunk2 Racing

Skunk2 Racing (Group-A Autosports)  was founded in 1994 in Northern California. Quickly they began developing innovate high performance engine parts. They introduced the first cast aluminum, high-performance intake manifold. They also developed cutting-edge composite fuel rails, and valve-train components made from premium materials. Skunk2 is acclaimed as being the first U.S.-based sport compact parts manufacturer to offer CNC-machined, adjustable cam gears in 1995 as well as billet camshafts in 1999. As a result of continually pushing their engine development capabilities in the racing world, they’ve discovered a number of exciting “power secrets” that are incorporated into every Skunk2 product.

Record Breaking Performance

In 2003 Skunk2 moved into its new state-of-the-art facility in Southern California that marks the birthplace of the potent Civic RR and Civic SiR v1. The introduction of Skunk2’s RSX, Project Delta, and K-series performance marks the return of Skunk2 to drag racing. The team goes on to finish the year with four wins out of five races, setting four new records. In 2004 Skunk2 introduced the world to Project Delta. Piloted by Dr. Charles, Delta sets and re-sets records at five out of six races and wins the NHRA Finals, NOPI Finals, and Battle of the Imports Finals. In 2005 Skunk2 returns with Project Beta, once again redefining the standard of speed and performance by smashing its own records.
