Hack Engineering relies on Moore & Wright measurement accuracy

With an ethos of being “run for enthusiasts by enthusiasts”, Hack Engineering
(based in Barcombe, East Sussex) has strengthened its precision measurement accuracy by investing in a large selection of Moore & Wright tools from Bowers Group
Hack Engineering was formed in 2014 as a supplier of high-performance parts for BMWs, with subsequent success resulting in the company opening of its first workshop, engine-building facilities and part supply operations — and the creation of its own machine shop.
The Moore & Wright tool portfolio is used on a daily basis throughout the business, whether in the engine build room measuring cylinder bores, in the machine shop measuring interference fit on valve guides or checking valve shim dimensions in the workshop. The tools have allowed Hack Engineering to be confident in the accuracy of the work it carries out.
Alex Lester, Hack Engineering’s technical director, said: “When trying to find those last few horsepower, precision is always going to be your friend. Availability and accuracy have always been important buying decisions when we are looking for new tooling. By using Moore & Wright, it has allowed us to have faith in every measuring process.”
Mr Lester joined as a business partner in 2018, bringing with him a wealth of machining and engine-reconditioning knowledge; and by moving machining work in-house, engine building became ever more prominent in the company’s offering. The machine shop now caters for all machining requirements, covering a variety of processes — including full cylinder head overhauls, valve grinding and block boring and honing.
With a dedicated engine building room on-site and all of the specialist tooling required readily available, the team at Hack Engineering has built many successful engines for fast road, forced induction, race and rally use.
