My name is Mike Chilando and I’m the founder and owner of "Alkydigger, Inc." aka Alkydigger.com – The Worlds Largest and Best Dedicated Fuel Injection, Supercharger Store
My company began as the result of a happy accident back in 2006, when I decided to build a nostalgia front engine dragster using an early Hemi. Midway through the project my plans changed and I listed all the equipment for sale, soon realizing that at age 59 I was more suited to helping others find parts. I embarked on this new endeavor and also began offering service work for Hilborn and Enderle fuel injection systems, over the next eight years. In 2011 we formed Alkydigger.net as a platform to more successfully market the more sophisticated equipment. We then bought a new building and expanded the business again in 2013. These are High Quality product lines that compliment my fuel injection business. We have over $1,000,000 in Hilborn and Enderle, Vertex, MSD, RCD Engineering and The Blower Shop equipment parts at any given time.

Toni Chilando Taylor - Office Manager, and Sales - not too hard on the eyes either
Shannon Chilando Cullen - Shipping, Receiving, Stocking, and Receptionist - thinks she's cuter than Toni, but they run about even
Bill Addison - Services Fuel Pumps, Builds injection, Flows Barrel Valves; and eats twice as much lunch as Mike, but weighs half as much
Kaki Chilando Rosson - Part time receptionist, and brings a bit of graphics to the table that was sorely missing - another daughter
We work hard to ship our customer's orders on time, every time. After owning twelve different kinds of businesses, I have finally found the one that "fuels my passion".

Our business model and mission statement is simple:
Deliver quality new and used race and custom parts to my valued customers on time, at a reasonable price, and tell them what they need to hear, not what they may want to hear.
"Just Good Enough" never is at Alkydigger's
