Stevens-Miller Racing Features Prefix Engines

Prefix Corporation is best known for being the automotive industry’s number one source for creating advanced concept vehicles and prototypes, as well as providing design and engineering services.

During this year’s exciting Belle Isle Race Week, the words “Powered By Prefix” will be present on Dodge, Ford, and Chevy cars participating in the popular Trans Am (TA2) series races. Typically known for the extremely high profile “Concept Vehicle” projects that they create for automotive and aviation companies around the globe, the engine and performance division has historically remained in the shadows. “We’ve got an amazing team of very talented professionals in our engine department,” explains Prefix Marketing Director, Jhan Dolphin. “Much of their work is usually behind-the-scenes, so it’s fun to see their impressive work getting so much exposure on the track.”

For many years, Prefix has enjoyed a successful history for developing and testing of both 392 and 426 CID Hemi Gen3 engines.  In 2017, Prefix completed “turnkey” Hemi 392/426 crate engines that offer every component necessary to put them directly into a muscle car, street rod or modern performance vehicle.  This year, Prefix is front and center, supplying Prefix built Dodge, Chevy, and Ford race engines. “The Trans Am (TA2) series provides a great test bed for further development and accelerated performance and durability testing,” continued Rick Talbot from Prefix Performance. "The Prefix race engines that currently power the TA2 series teams are comprised of many of the same parts as their current crate engines now available to performance enthusiasts across the country."
