Lingenfelter, from real life to Forza 2

by Mordeux

Lingenfelter Q&A, with Lingenfelter Sales Representative Kevin Jeffery

What can you tell me about Lingenfelter, more specifically about the late John Lingenfelter and a little of his background?
"Sure, this year is Lingenfelter's 26th anniversary John Lingenfelter had originally started in a small two to three bay garage, focusing on crate engines and it's what made his reputation. As John got into racing he was always known for horsepower, ran several different classes, dragsters, and pro-stock trucks. He got into the NHRA and had Summit as a sponsor, and built really nice campaign. After they got rid of the pro stock truck John got into the imports and the Chevy Cavalier. He did a 4-cylinder cavalier with 1400 horsepower and a single turbo. At the time it was Garrett's largest turbo available."

Why would a company like Lingenfelter be in Decatur Indiana? "John was originally from Pennsylvania, moved to Decatur Indiana as an engineer for International Harvester in Fort Wayne. And that's the time John really got into turbo chargers on some of the semi's. He always had an interest in that, so it became something he grew a passion for outside of International Harvester and started living his dream. He was determined and nothing held him back, he made it happen."
