Just wanted to write a review of an excellent experience I had with AQ motorsports recently.

I almost ALWAYS do my own work because I think I can do it better than anyone else can, and because I like the cerebral masturbation of doing my own work. Recently, however, I needed a lot of work done to 2 of my 4 Subies and needed it done fast.

What I needed, was to pull the engine from my WRX wagon and swap it into my 06 Forester XT due to a thrown rod in my Forester, which is my daily driver. In the process I wanted to swap all of the suspension and red 4 pot/2 pot brakes over to the Forester. I am doing a 6 speed swap to my WRX wagon, and had already prepped all of the STi swap parts, so I brought AQ the suspension, trans, rear diff, axles, Brembo's etc. from the STi so that he could make the WRX wagon a rolling chassis after pulling all of the parts that were going into the Forester.

Long story short, it was a bunch of juggling parts between 2 cars, parts that Also in the mess of things I needed/wanted done was swapping the turbo back exhaust from my 2nd Forester (which is an STi swap already) into the daily driver Foz. All in all it was a boat load of work that really needed 2 people and a rack to pull the cars on and off of to make the job manageable.

Yes, I most certainly could have done all of that work myself, but it would have been a giant undertaking, and the fact that the daily driver Foz had thrown a rod, there was oil everywhere and there was no way I was going to destroy my driveway towing that car to my house so that I could save some money. It was a case of spending the money, to save myself a crap load of headache, which would have also taken me weeks to accomplish.

At the end of the day, Adan and crew got both cars, 3 truck loads of parts and they went to it.

I had my daily driver back on the road in 2 days, and my WRX Wagon got the tranny and associated parts installed the following week. The other Foz (STi) got the turbo back swapped while I waited after work, at 6pm in less than an hour..... I was completely mind blown at how willing and capable Adan and AQ Motorsports were. Blown away.

Like I said, I could have done all of this myself. I have done it several times now across the many Subies I have built and owned. I never trust anyone else to work on my cars, but this time I decided to take a chance and give AQ a shot at the work.

I do not think you will find a more honorable businessman than Adan at AQ. You most certainly will not find a more demanding customer than myself, and Adan was there every step of the way in this process, with honest prices, honest work and delivered on time when I needed it most.

If you have the need for any professional service or mechanical work, look no further than AQ. I have been around the Subaru game for more than a decade now, and I have dealt with more than my fair share of shady business people in this game. AQ is not one of them. They DEFINITELY get my stamp of approval, and will certainly get more of my business in the future.

It has been more than a month now since all of this work was done and I have not had to fix or tighten a single bolt on the daily driver. The engine swap was done PERFECTLY and NOTHING needed to be re-done, re-checked nor did I have to go back because they forgot something. Flawless work, perfectly executed, and done to my very demanding standards.

Thank you Adan...Thank you AQ Motorsports!
