UTI and Super Street magazine together give you all the “tuning” skills you’ll need to perform vehicle modifications while keeping your specs and emissions strictly street legal. Super Street brings you up to speed in one of the fastest growing sectors in automotive technology: the personalization and performance enhancements of sport compact cars.

You’ll get the low-down on power adders — super chargers, turbochargers, cold air induction, nitrous, ignition and exhaust upgrades — and you’ll figure out how they perform during dyno testing.

UTI has teamed up with the legendary Hot Rod magazine to bring you high-power training. You’ll learn how to get the “biggest bang for the buck” and to optimize performance through modification.

HotRod U meets the needs of the true performance enthusiast, covering everything from converters and camshafts to cylinder heads and nitrous oxide. Performance modifications will be put to the test on a chassis dyno and engine dyno.

The skills you’ll learn in Power & Performance will make you a better technician and more attractive to potential employers.

Financial aid is assistance from government and private sources to students to help pay for their education costs. Most students utilize a combination of aid types, such as grants, scholarships, and student loans.

The financial aid process may feel time consuming, but we’re here to help you (and your parents) throughout the process.

UTI works with you to determine your financial aid eligibility and the aid amount available, given your financial situation. It's worth asking about. Most of UTI's former graduates have benefited from financial aid. But only those who apply may receive assistance.
