Steve over-hauled my 1969 Corvette engine in late 90's. I wanted someone that I could trust that would insure that all my part numbers would remain intact... as all good Vette enthusiast demand. Steve also had a '69 Vette and knew how important that was to the owner. I did not rush him, as he had a full work obligation load building/rebuilding Indy car engines at that time. When I got my car back, let's say:
#1, I have always loved speed (ask any highway patrol in the state of NC)
#2, I fear nothing (have been the Nursing Mgr.(head) of DUMC ED for over 18 years and have burned out any "fight or flight" reaction right out of this body.....
When Steve took me out on our first test ride in "BETSY", my butt cheeks were so tired of the death grip on those leather seats when we got back, I thought I would never be normal again. The life and speed he but back into that engine was pure amazing. I have never regretted that decision to have him rebuild that engine. That engine performs to this day better than it did when it came out of the show room floor in 1969. I can out run big block engines and she runs like a "scalded dog". I know some people are basically unhappy souls and complain about everything. The key is communication with Steve as he is no mind reader and asking exactly for what you want or expect.I I feel that I was treated fair and professionally and would go to him all over again if needed. Steve is a unique find in the world of engines and am proud that he did my work!

I highly recommend Steve Ashworth and his business. I have purchased many parts there for multiple projects and always was impressed with the quick and knowlegable service I experianced. I recently had my engine dynoed by Steve and his

I sent a big block and a set of rectangular port heads for a 454 to be machined and assembled. A ball park figure for the project was $5200.00. After deciding the block was questionable steve ashworth decided to use a block he had in stock

This guy is unbelievable, in a bad way. He is always having a bad day. I went in this morning to pick up a part his employee said would be there today or Monday. He said that he had no idea when they would get it in. My response was "I wish your guy wouldn't have said it would be here by monday", as I was walking to buy a package that cost three times as much as the part I needed, but was in this package. He said his help didn't know how things worked, then he got upset and told me "I can't help you, seriously I can't help you". Steve needs to train his guys and get an attitude adjustment. I wouldn't buy an oil filter from this dude. I wish this rating would allow no stars for that jerk!

Steve is absolutely amazing, he really went well above and beyond on my engine even doing some for free which just shows how passionate he is about what he does. I was going to do a simple "Throw it together and hope it lasts" but Im leaving with a bulletproof engine at a great price. Words cant describe the experience Ive had there.

Pros: great people, service, knowledge

Cons: If you want to do something slightly wrong dont go here!

Steve Ashworth has always been friendly and helpful whenever I've visited Ashworth Performance. They have good prices (comparable to the mail order/Internet sites--which is hard to do) they're the only local source for speed parts on-the-shelf. It's really great having such a place nearby outside of Raleigh. In fact, I don't know if there's any competition in Raleigh when it comes to speed parts for REAL Cars--Ford, GM, MOPAR. Maybe they have Tuner parts too. Give 'em a call.They have Aluminum heads and intakes for Fords and Chevys in stock on display, Dominators and other Holleys on the wall. Cams, Header gaskets, Shifters, hard-to-find lubricants. They have things IN-STOCK that you'd have to order anywhere else and they know what you're talking about when you ask for it. They won't give you that "deer-in-the-headlights" look.

If you are serious about doing things the right way then this is the place for you. There are no corners skipped at this shop. If you do not mind hearing straight answers and need soild work, I do not know of any better.

Pros: Performance/race driven

Cons: none, yet.

Sure they have things (parts, engines and what-not) that most parts store don't in stock but try not to deal with the owner. He is a bit of an a$$. I try not to go in there unless REALLY needed. Don't go on a Sunday unless you just want whats out front.

Pros: The guys working there are nice

Cons: The owner is eh

Basically this shop is geared toward high performance cars and folks that want to soup-up their cars. They have race equipment, high performance muscle car equipment, and they may even work on cars in their back shop. My husband has been able to get the parts he needed within a couple of days when they've had to order them for him. The guys who work there are friendly and accommodating.
