was started in 1968 by Dick Moroso, one of the most successful
modified production drag racers on record. Dick left his
racing career to design, test and manufacture specialized
products aimed exclusively at racers needs. The performance
world quickly recognized that Moroso products were a cut
above the others because they were designed and built
for racers by a racer.
Moroso was responsible for many innovations in the high
performance industry. He was instrumental in nurturing
the warehouse distribution (WD) network, which became
an integral step in supplying the growing number of speed
shops appearing in every corner of the country. In addition,
Moroso pioneered many racing products including deep-sump
oil pans, electric water pumps, tall valve covers, lightweight
front drag tires, racing vacuum pumps, and others.
Moroso heritage continues with their constantly updated
manufacturing and quality control systems. Computers with
the latest CAD/CAM software have replaced the drafting
tables and the Moroso plant is filled with sophisticated
CNC machinery, including turret punch presses, turning
centers and lathes. The combination of highly skilled
craftsmen and highly accurate machinery guarantees that
the tradition of quality started by Dick Moroso in 1968
will continue throughout the coming decades. For more
