Default WARNING: Kontras Performance

Started working with Kontras Performance in January of 2020. Commissioned them to start an engine build for me, just shortblock. Agreed that it makes no difference to them if I supply parts, so I did. Kept in contact with them for advice on parts etc. Followed their advice to the T, eventually agreed to have them install the shortblock into my flawlessly running driving 2008 sti, with new turbo, new everything and get it tuned and running flawlessly. Dropped car off 3/28 for everything to be done. Got it back 5 weeks later, not running right, Kontras blamed parts, found parts improperly installed, had to go back 4 or 5 times to get things fixed. Never could get it running right. Took it for 3 weeks to work on it after I told him I only could leave it with him for a week so let me know beforehand. He didn't care, told me he'd have to charge me another $900 up front to diagnose, when I spent $6500 with his shop and around $4000 in parts to have the car running. Eventually asked me to sign an NDA FOR $300 OR GET LOST (NDA is some paper basically promising I won't tell anyone about the incidents). Threatened to call the sheriff when I tried to sit down and resolve the issue with him when I went to pick up the car. Totally unprofessional crook. Would beware of him.
