A Brief History of Mike’s Racing Heads


Mike’s Racing Heads was first opened in West Chester, Pennsylvania by Mike Androwick Sr. in 1987. Prior to opening his own business he had worked for some very successful engine builders and cylinder head shops such as; Brandywine cylinder heads, Nickens and Brown, John Lingenfelter and Joe Lepone Jr. Working for these top rate shops, Mike was able to gain years of experience in a rather short period of time. In 1997 Mike purchased a 5 axis CNC machine to handle the work load and reproduce the custom cylinder heads he was hand porting.

In 2000 Mike was offered an opportunity to work with legendary Pro Stock engine builder Richard Maskin at Dart Machinery in Troy, Michigan. It was a tough decision to make, but the passion and desire to work with Pro Stock engines was still Mike’s primary goal. So in February 2000 Mike and his family moved to Michigan to take on a new challenge and fulfill a lifelong goal. That very same year Dart engines powered Jeg Coughlin to the NHRA Pro Stock Championship. From 2002 – 2005 Mike worked with Larry Morgan’s Pro Stock team alongside Bob Glidden, and as a team they made huge strides in the Pro Stock ranks. Mike and his family have since relocated to Concord, North Carolina and have reopened Mike’s Racing Heads.

Mike Androwick Jr. has joined his father in the family business and brought with him new ideas and perspective on cylinder head and manifold design. Jr runs the CNC machine and is in charge of all CAD/CAM and 3D modeling. He and his father work hand in hand to develop new products and revolutionize the cylinder head industry with their experience and ability to “think outside of the box”.
