Dave is the chit, he gives very good deals on all his products. Beats many vendors on nabisco. Will be doing more business with him very soon.

Thumbs up Defiant Autospeed

Little back round on my little project:

2008 Forester XT Sport
-VF43 p&p (Defiant Autospeed/Integrity)
-Cobb AP
-Cobb catted TBE
-STi TMIC
-Walbro Drop in Fuel Pump (Defiant Autospeed/Integrity)
-Thermo Tec, wrap/turbo blanket (Defiant Autospeed/Integrity)
-Perrin E-Boost Solenoid Controller


First of all, I did a lot of research for my goals for my XT. Dave at Defiant Autospeed was pivotal in many of my decesssions and choices. When I talked with him, he was down to earth, and was like talking to a Guru Member, not a vendor. He never pushed me in to set ups I didn't need. He worked with me around my budget and goals. I was impressed that he was more concerned that I went with the right parts, not where I bought them as I did not buy all from him.

Dave returned my pms promptly and went in to extreme detail on why one part or direction was better or worse then the other. I actually learned a lot from what he sharred with me.

I let Dave know that I was in a bit of a crunch due to my upcoming install and tune that was in the near future. I was concerned that the P&P job and parts would not make it to me on time. I put the crunch on Dave, and he REALLY Stepped up.

I recieved the used turbo in the middle of the week, 2 weeks ago and shipped it right out to Dave. Dave contacted me upon recieving the turbo, inspected it for me before touching it. I was sweating bullets at this point, being my install day was the upcoming weekend. Dave kept this in mind and got me all the ordered parts in 2 days (Texas-Va) and the Turbo on the following Thursday. Now here is where I was blown away. With the short notice, and the detailed work, Dave really didn't need to promise me the Turbo by then, but he did. He initially had it shipped out, and realized it may be cutting in close with the carrier he was going to use. So with out any extra cost to me, he stopped the shipping, and upgraded the service at his cost. He kept his promise, even though I put a lot on his plate. Also this is in the Midst of a nasty storm in his area that did some serious damage to the local area. PICS: Downtown Austin=pwnd - NASIOC

The P&P looks phenominal, smooth as butter. I had several of my Nasioc buddies look it over, and they being much more tech savy were thoroughly impressed. All pointed out how smooth and the attention to detail, all done by hand.

I am truly greatfull for Dave and Defiant Autospeed. He provided me a great service great prices, and wonderful unbiased advice. He went out of his way to keep the customer happy. Its refreshing with all the big vendors out there, with out the roots that Defiant AutoSpeed has with the Nasioc and SF community.

He has gained a loyal customer, and I can only expect better things from the growth from such a dedicated vendor.

Thanks Dave



Oh, one litle thing, you forgot my sticker(s) Dave. I don't put vendor stickers on my ride, but yours earned a spot.

Thanks man

Its always nice to hear that my customers are happy. I actually think I like hearing that the porting customers are happy more than the retail, because the retail, I just sell them a part made by someone else, whereas the porting work was done my MY hands, on MY bench, with MY tools. So its not just "you gave me good service", its "you did good work" Which is always really nice to hear.

Just got my P&P VF43 installed, no tune yet. I have a E-Tune untill my scheduled tune with Jorge. Orders no boost, and low rps unitll then.

I can tell you that there is a significant change in throttle responce, she wants to go into boost so bad. Can't wait to see what she does with a propper tune.

Thanks again Dave!

I'm another satisfied customer. I decided I was going to go EWG, and did some searching among the vendor threads to see who carried what I wanted (the TurboXS kit). I contacted several vendors, and while Dave wasn't initially the cheapest, he was the most thorough in his response, which really helped me feel comfortable with him. Then, after the fact, he contacted me with a way to save me some cash - this wasn't something I asked for, and I was comfortable with the initially-quoted price, but a few things had changed and he was able to pass some savings on to me. How many vendors would do this?

I had some shipping issues (both from Dave's shipper and some slow response from a part that was drop-shipped), but Dave was good about keeping me informed about where things were and what was being done. I would have liked to have gotten my stuff more quickly, but I don't think there's a person out there who wouldn't like their parts sooner. When I stepped back and looked at the entire transaction, including what I perceived as "slow" shipping, I was really satisfied, and had no reason to think otherwise. Dave did a good job at pricing, shipping, and just helping me out.

Thanks man Yeah.. Unfortunately if you have 100 deals, one or two will have some sort of hang-up happen. I do always try my best to make sure my customers are happy, because I was one of you. I spent years buying parts from Vendors here, and I promise I am more impatient than any of you Nothing was more frustrating than waiting for parts that SHOULD have been there already. So the last possible thing I want, is for my customers to experience that. I have even moved on to a supplier that is a little bit more expensive on my end, because they are far more reliable.

Anyway, I am glad that you are happy. That's my goal. Make you happy, make your car cooler/faster/better/stronger, and if I am lucky, you will come back to me for future parts

Dave did a PnP on my exhaust manny over the July 4 weekend! Great service and great turnaround. Any further PnP work will be going to Dave from now on. I highly recommend his services.

Dave hooked me up with my turbo for a good price. He also answered every single question I had, which was a lot, and is still following up with me on how I like the part. He was also extremely honest. Thanks

Just received 2 fuel pumps from Dave. This is my second purchase from Defiant/Integrity and definitely not my last.

I told him when I needed it and he got it done.

WTF Tuned

Default

I ordered a bunch of parts through Dave to prepare for a tuning session a few months ago. He discussed my options with me extensively. There were a few issues with some of the parts that arrived at my house (got the APS 70mm instead of the 65mm I ordered, I got a WRX rear sway instead of the STi front sway I ordered). Dave handled the situation great, knowing I was on a deadline, and was able to get me the parts with enough time for the install.

There was another issue with a part that got sent not fitting properly, but Dave has been working with me to get that remedied.

All-in-all, I've been very happy with my business dealings with him. There were some complications, but he has gone out of his way to make things right, and as a customer, that's all I could ask for.
