Good luck!
Just to add: The SAM (in Houston area) school won the Engine Masters Challenge this year. Hands on real life engine development in the high performance market. The school runs a drag car as well. I noticed two young men with SAM shirts in our TAD pits at the NHRA Houston Regional race. I pulled them aside and congratulated them on the Engine Masters Challenge win. Turns out both of them were involved with the program and went to the challenge. I was impressed with the school experiences they shared.
