    It all started in the mid sixties when Jim got caught up in the high performance muscle car craze as a kid. (Jim is the owner and master mechanic at Performance Jet.) Jim began building engines at age 16 and raced high performance Oldsmobile's in the early days.
    Over the years, Jim has designed and built Chevy, Ford and Olds engines for high performance applications in race cars, boats and hot rods. Jim also has an extensive background in electronics, centrifugal pumps and fluid hydraulics.
    In 1979 Jim bought his first jet boat and fell in love with boating. PERFORMANCE JET was opened in 1981 when Jim became a dealer for Berkeley Jet Drive out of Berkeley, California. Jim continued to be involved with auto racing and signed on with Heavy Metal Racing in 1992 to design and build engines for dirt track racing. Heavy Metal Racing won their first championship in 1993 and later became the Petaluma Speedway Champion three years in a row, running a 360 Sprinter. One of Jim's motor designs is still used today.
    Jim has specialized in trouble shooting and problem diagnosis for over thirty years. Performance Jet is a full service shop that has designed hundreds of combinations for speed and reliability. Jim is assisted by his son, Jim Jr. when the need arises throughout the year. Jr. is a jet pump builder with a deep experience in electronics and wiring. Jim Jr. is the all around go-to guy at Performance Jet.
