Dude you did a badass job rebuilding the motor! It feels like a brand new car! The motor runs great, transmission feels ALOT smoother then before, and best of all my car is finally tuned lol.

Mike is the guy to go to for all of your subaru needs. If your car needs diagnosing, tuning or something fixed no matter what it is, Mikes the man. He knows what hes doing and puts alot of pride into it. Communication with Mike was awesome. He always let me know what was going on with the rebuild. The price for the entire overhaul was excellent. And above all, Mikes a trustworthy guy. I don't trust anyone else when it comes to Subaru's.

Thanks alot man for all the help! I appreciate the effort you put into my car

Those videos are great on Cleveland. Very funny.

With that being said...the last time I was in Essex I saw a line of people waiting at the gas station to use the payphone. Thought of that when in the video they showed the dude on the pay phone.

Mike is a good guy. Drove out to my house to diagnose and fix a leaky injector, and helped out a whole let of a lot with my turbo swap nightmare.

Don't feel bad...PPG has left a very sour taste in my mouth as well as cost me tons of headache, downtime, two seasons at the trackdamage to my car from sitting at the shop for months on end , and money that was set aside for the rest of the build, now gone!!!

My car has spent more time broken and sitting either in my driveway or on a lot waiting on parts from PPG, than it has seen track or road. Absolutely unacceptable! I would not have customers if I went about my business this way!

I am absolutely digusted with the way all this has been handled and wish I never got caught up in this mess. I understand perfectly 110% you need to pay to play, and things break, but I have barely gotten to play and that just sucks!

I'm stock turbo and don't beat on my gears to terribly bad either...makes me sick thinking of the built motor I could have had by now and all the other goods that should have been in my car at this point. Not to mention all the vital track experience I've been missing out on while the car has been down.

Live and learn..my learning curve is obviously a little slow because anyone with half a brain would have said FU after the second or third time failing and went a different route or taken action in some way! Not me I had to be a nice guy and hope for the best each time! Never again thats for sure!

Though I must say not every failure was on PPG, I'll take full responsibilty for my transfer gears taking a dump...Thats it though!

I am however grateful the shop doing the build has at least tried to work with me with the issues at hand or at least have made it seem that they were sincerely trying to help, as I understand they could have told me to F off if they really wanted to be ass's so I definetly take that into account! However I am still incredibly displeased at this point. One can only take so much before he starts to wonder whats really going on!

Best of luck on getting your box situated and lets hope mine holds togather for the sach of my sanity.

so what actually happened ross? i heard there was some animosity between mfactory and DS1

and blazzin06wrxdude sucks to hear that about the PPG stuff. i think the main flaw with all the aftermarket gearsets is the junk 5-speed casing, the split case design is terrible for rigidity and power handling.
