On september 1 2016, Colorado Component Rebuilders closed. They closed primarily because of the health issues the Owner Rick was having. Mike Walter ( being good friends with the Ricks daughter and wanting to help ) purchased a majority of CCR'S vast inventory of engine blocks, cylinder heads, crankshafts etc and also a majority of the machine shop equipment.

Mike and Rick have since  become good friends and communicate on a daily basis, whether it be Subaru engines or the weather


Owner Mike Walter put his first timing belt on  a 1987 Subaru GL wagon in 1989. Since then he has always had a passion for Subaru's and their flat four design.
Mike has been an Auto Repair business owner since 1991 and prides himself with giving the best customer service he possibly can.

His employees follow Mikes footsteps when it comes to Honesty and Intergrity .

 Whether its a simple oil change or rebuilding a Subaru STI engine , you know Mike and his crew will always do their best to make sure the customer is completely satisfied.
