founder of BTR Performance, Bill Trovato, has been engineering
advancements in Oldsmobile Performance for over 20 years. It all
started in the mid-80's with his 70
Cutlass which captured nationwide attention with outstanding
performance and wheels-up launches at the dragstrip. During the
early 90's, Bill made a stint in the NHRA Stock Eliminator Class
with his 1970 W-30 442. This car ran 11.30s in stock trim while
weighing in at over 3900 pounds!!
the years passed,Bill became intimately involved with Street Legal
Drag Racing. The involvement started with running NMCA's EZ Street
class in the mid 90's. In class legal form, the car was running
close to the top of the pack with mid 9 second passes with the car
weighing in at over 4000 pounds, powered by an Oldsmobile Motor.
In the late 90's Bill changed gears
and started working as a Tech
Inspector of the NMCA
for several years, and helped launch
the NMRA while holding the position as Race Director. In the 2001
season, Bill debuted his new 78 Starfire in
NMCA's EZ Street class again, and later in NSCA's Limited Street.
Again, the Starfire features a Small Block Oldsmobile and, in the
2003 season, ran at the top of the pack with 8.20
quarter mile times at over 166mph!
Now, starting in 2004, Bill is
making his services available to the automotive performance
oriented community. Bill has
shown that he has the talent to be personally competitive in a class
being handicapped with an Oldsmobile Engine. NHRA Pro Stock
technology has been utilized in these motors that has helped achieve
these outstanding performance levels. These skills are amplified in
engine families (e.g. Chevy, Ford) that can benefit more extensively from these techniques. Also
Bill has a great deal of experience with motors with heavy nitrous
usage as well as systems ranging from plates to direct port nitrous
systems. So... contact BTR Performance for all of your high
performance needs regardless of engine family and configuration!
