About Z Code Performance:
My objective at Z Code Performance is to design, engineer, and manufacture
high-performance aftermarket parts. I also offer custom designs for niche
applications. I specialize in designing aftermarket performance solutions for the
1997-2004 Dodge Dakota. An engineer by trade, I earned a Bachelor of Science
in Mechanical Engineering from Penn State University, and I work in the
aerospace industry for a sub-prime component supplier during the day.
However, my true passion has always been automotive performance. I was
raised in a gearhead household, and I have been turning wrenches with my
father for as long as I can remember. I bought my first Chrysler product (a 1999
Dodge Dakota R/T) in 2004, joined the Dakota R/T club (member #869) shortly
thereafter, and the rest, as they say, is history.
In addition to performance, quality, and affordability, I strongly believe in
preserving and strengthening American manufacturing. As such, all of my
products are designed, manufactured, and tested in the United States, and I use
100% American-made components wherever possible.
