About Us

About TCR Automotive, Tucson, AZTCR is dedicated to providing the highest level of service for our customers. From a busy mom’s minivan to a high performance enthusiast, TCR has the equipment and experience to get the job done right at a fair price.

TCR Automotive and Performance provides our customers a unique, one of a kind experience. Our shop offers you the best in new-school performance products and old-school service you can count on. We don’t just bolt on new parts and send you on your way. We test the products we offer, build you custom parts when nothing else will do and back it all up with data from our in-house dyno and flow bench.

Our Mission:
To ensure the success of our customers, providing the highest quality performance services and products available in Tucson and Southern Arizona. Because we are a local Tucson automotive shop, we can provide a quality of service beyond the big national chains.

Our Promise:
We absolutely refuse to BS anyone with unrealistic marketing hype or the magazine fluff that the large performance manufacturers and warehouses create. We promise to provide you, our customers, with straight talk and straight answers regarding all of your auto performance and maintenance needs.



We Know High Performance:

TCR is experienced in the maintenance and performance of all makes and models but Monday through Friday you will always find us repairing or modifying a Toyota vehicle. Everything from a oil change to a ground up restoration. We have over 25 years of modifying, building and preparing Toyota engines and vehicles for all-out competition. No matter what the type of competition we are never satisfied with-out a championship. As a premier engine building facility we possess numerous back to back class championships, everything from the off-road high deserts of the United States to as far away as the twisting road courses of South Africa, few can make the claim nor honestly back it up!
As our customer, you will always receive unbiased “NO BS” technical information and expert mechanical services. You will NOT find us contributing to the bull, and probable out and out lies found in the typical performance magazine articles. You WILL find us working on engine development and engine component optimization. We own and operate both engine and chassis dyno’s utilizing custom Land & Sea data acquisition equipment, our flow bench is capable of 1000 CFM, we employ 5 axis CNC machining for our cylinder head porting on a daily basis, NOT on a yearly basis. We do not use air driven porting equipment, nor do we use constant shape changing sand rolls.

We offer praise to manufactures that continue to produce quality products, and we have no issues contacting a manufacture and informing them they produce crap.




Toyota Modification, Upgrades and Performance


We Know Toyota’s
As our customer, you will always receive unbiased “NO BS” technical information and expert mechanical services. Specializing in Toyota and Lexus engine development since the 90’s, there is no other facility that can offer you the knowledge gained through decades of testing and product development, that contributes to the most high quality Toyota based engines from mild to wild.

Looking for an intermediate motor to freshen up your 80’s/90’s pickup or 4Runner? Ask us about our 22R/RE Street Performer, offering a 30% power increase over stock and as reliable and efficient as the day your truck rolled off the showroom floor.

Have a 3.0 3VZE Truck or 4Runner? This is a very strong Toyota engine, unfortunately plagued by a head gasket oversight by Toyota. A properly built and maintaned 3.0 will last just as long as any other Toyota motor. We build 3VZ’s from a bone stock replacement to a fully built 3VZ that will give a 3.4 powered later gen Tacoma or 4runner a run for it’s money, all without the hassles of engine swaps.
