Greg Acosta – The Media Mover And Shaker Behind EngineLabs

As the Managing Editor of Power Automedia’s collection of magazine titles, and amidst celebrating our 15 year anniversary, I wanted to share some Q&A I had with the editors for each of our magazines so that you, our readers, could better understand who’s behind the wheel driving your favorite automotive content forward. The team at EngineLabs encompasses a group of talented freelance writers and photographers with years of experience in their respective fields, all led by the EngineLabs Editor, Greg Acosta. They are passionate about all things engine tech and want to share that excitement with you – so come find out what they think is cool about the industry! I sat down with Greg to break down the personality behind the leading digital magazine to find out what being a “Media Mover, Shaker, and Story Breaker” means to him.

Q: What’s your mission for your magazine?

A: EngineLabs’ mission is to bring our readers inside the world of high-performance internal-combustion engines. My goal is to pull back the curtain and demystify the science of horsepower. I live the life of horsepower. This isn’t a 9-5 job, it’s my passion. I want to be the trusted source for tech information while pushing boundaries with our testing. By challenging the accepted limits of things, I hope to expand the understanding of automotive tech enthusiasts. 

Q: Why is automotive more than just a piece of transportation to you?

A: Engines have personalities and souls just like their owners. Their performance is so much more than just a number on a dyno sheet, and making power is as much art as it is science. 

Q: Biggest moment for you in your career thus far?

A: I can’t single out any one moment in my career as the “biggest.” There have been so many amazing experiences in the past 17 years that to single one out would be a disservice to the others. 

Q: What’s does being a media mover and shaker mean to you?

A: Education. The transfer of knowledge. Helping someone understand a concept more thoroughly has no downsides and only makes our community a better place overall. It’s more than just being an entertainer. Sure, that’s part of it — no one reads a textbook for fun — but also, no one cites a comic book as a source of factual information. Ultimately having the trust of both the readers and the subjects we’re writing about is what’s important to me.
