Cylinder Head Specialists About Us
Cylinder Head Specialists was originally started by Dave Rosewarne in 1981. It started out as a small cylinder head reconditioning shop with an interest in motor sport. However, over the years it has developed into a Hi-Tech engine development facility still concentrating on cylinder head technology but with a wide variety of engine related race components.

Dave's involvement in motor sport has been hydroplane racing - New Zealand Champ and South Island Champ, Hill Climbing, Asphalt Road Racing, Marathon Boat Racing, Drag Racing and currently Sprint Car and Modified Racing. Staff involvement is also Speedway, Boat, Karting, Rally and Drag Racing.
