Default LUTZ PERFORMANCE - WRX customer thread

Today we had the pleasure of being able to start working on Paul's (pjc1976) 2011 WRX. Paul stopped by about a week ago to check out the shop and place an order for some 22mm White Line Sway bars for the front and rear plus much more.
We had scheduled him in to come today (01/27/12) and get the first items installed.









Within the next week or so we will be scheduling Paul to come in for his BC Coilover install, so stay tuned!

Any question please feel free to shoot me a PM.

How about your own garage? I know lots of guys up here have had great success with S&R, Not to take away from Lutz though. At least you have options, there are 0 shops up here that I would trust to work on my car. And the dealership? Pfffft...overpriced and I think I'd rather give a monkey a wrench and put him in my garage. The results would be about the same.

I've always been a big believer in, How can you take pride in driving your car if you can't even work on it. BUT!

I've changed my opinions much since then. There are many great drivers from Rally's Collin McRae, Nascar's Dale Earhardt, to F1's Michael Schumacher that love driving, and leaving the mechanical aspects to their team. I am sure at one point in time they started just like us, but in the end. There are many levels of enthusiasts, and just because you might not be mechanically inclined doesn't mean you can't enjoy your car and take it to the shop and have them deal with it. That being said. I have heard many thing's Good and Bad about S&R Performance, and as I like to say. To Each his own.

Not to mention that most of us, Don't really have time to go and rip our cars apart for a weekend because of other obligations such as work, family, etc...

-Srry for the rant.

We should see if Lutz Performance would want to have a tech day with the Subey crew! Where if not mechanically inclined can learn something and can be of some help. I know I will be ordering and installing some BC coilovers soon and I'm always down to teach or let someone watch for an install. Knowledge is power and having a good shop to help is always a good thing.

I know this is something we did with the
FL 350Z club and it was a great help to all and a fun day of watching cars get modified and the pride of installing parts while having a shop/mechanic there in case you get stuck or just having someone with the knowledge to help.

For Lutz Performance when it comes to fabrication they are very good. I have know there lead fabricator Shawn for years and grew up together. I have seen his work and it is absolutely amazing! Definitely who I will have make me an
intake when I go rotated turbo.

I agree with you, in fact we just had the clutch word done on our LGT because I broke the CV axle and decided I didn't want to deal with it. That and the trans was fused to the block and I don't have the tools (man strength + trans jack) to get the job done. Luckily we are fortunate enough to have more than one car to drive (5) if I take another one off the road. But I've also been sitting on a project for over a year that I now need to tote to Tampa. I was more curious as to why someone would give negative feedback about a shop without giving any reason why or promoting another with no justification. But I've also been a believer in the community helping eachother out if someone wants to do the work themselves. I hosted an install day at my house and we have 20+ cars show up.

Here are a couple pics:

This is what I like to do. I love hosting I provide the beer everyone else brings snacks/parts and people get their hands dirty.

But to get back on topic... @Lutz what services do you guys provide exactly?

We are a full service/performance facility. Not only do we install or repair parts, we also do custom fabrication, rotated setups, grounding kits...etc

As a matter of fact we offer Track Side Support, we are loading up the trailer right now with 2 Porsche's that we are hauling today to Sebring for the PCA 48hr event this weekend.

The Trailer
