About Us


Lynn Rogers began 'Lynn Rogers Automotive' in 1976 from his home workshop and moved into one of the workshops at Vincent Street, Howick in 1981. Lynn has consistently developed engines that get the job done. The list of races and championships won by Lynn Rogers Automotive engines is quite a long one. After 40 years of running his company Lynn has recently decided to sell the business to one of his long time staff members, Alan Harris. Lynn will be continuing on in an advisory role to ensure continuity of service to our loyal customers. 


At the end of 2015, Alan Harris purchased 'Lynn Rogers Automotive' and renamed it 'Harris Performance Engineering NZ Ltd'.


Alan Harris started at Lynn Rogers Automotive in 2006. Alan specialises in cylinder head repair, restoration and performance development. Alan has been doing the development work on all heads in the shop recently with very good results. He knows how to get the right sort of flow through an engine to achieve your performance targets.


Peter Enderby started at Lynn Rogers Automotive in 2006. Peter specialises in engine reconditioning machining and assembly. With years of experience in well known engine shops as well as with Air New Zealand Engineering there isn't a lot that he hasn't done when it comes to engine work.
