About us

Our Story

Ryan and Tony started AES Motorsports in the summer of 2019 to share their passion for building and tuning cars for race day at Bandimere Speedway. Since then, AES Motorsports has now evolved to not only help with custom builds, high performance consulting, and tuning, but to help with anything you might have issues with under the hood. Tony Baldwin brings ASE Certification, and over 20 Years in the industry working on everything from high performance cars, diesel trucks, to even Electric Vehicles. Ryan graduated with a Welding Certification Front Range Community College, with his experience in the field and studying under Tony for 15 years, he can help with not only exhaust repair, but fully custom turbo/supercharger kits and piping as well. We specialize in Audi/VW products of all kinds as well as Ford Mustangs. From the 4.6L Cobra motors, 5.0L Coyotes, to the infamous Audi 5 Cylinders and VR6 Motors and everything in between. Our work speaks for itself, from 1500whp Trans-Am Drag cars, 800 horsepower 10 speed Mustangs, Twin Turbo F150’s, Boosted Tacomas, and even 500 Horsepower A4’s we work on everything. We want to help as many people as possible, so we charge one of the lowest hourly rates in Northern Colorado. Stop by or call in during our business hours (10AM to 5PM Tuesday-Saturday) and lets talk about how we can help you with your vehicle!
