WOW WHAT A JOKE! Can't believe they are still in business. They built a stroker engine for my sons 1996 corvete. I brought the engine to them, picked it up a month later and installed it. tried to start it and it ran really rough. I pulled the valve covers and found 3 broken push rods and 4 others were bent. He sent someone out to check it and the guy replaced the push rods and said it was good to go. Charged the battery and fired the engine up and it ran rough again I called him. he said to pull the plugs and bring them to him. Oops! wrong plugs. I replaced the plugs and it still didnt run right. Called Joe back and he said it wont run right until you get the thing tuned. Trailered the car to a corvette specialty shop(in business for 25+ years) The man started the car on the trailer and said he cant tune the engine because it has internal problems. Called Joe and he said to pull the engine and bring it back to him. The thing was wasted and he said he had to rebuild the complete engine again.I also asked if he had balanced the engine, he said yes. I said dont you need the flywheel ? I brought the flywheel to him. I installed the engine when he was done and I called him to come to my house to see for himself that it still is not right. After saying fix it or I will see you in court. He agreed to take the car to his shop and fix it. After 6 weeks he said it is done and he is having it towed to my house. I started the car and called him, he said "You need to have it tuned" Trailered the car back to the corvette shop and the guy started the car and backed it off and said the engine is still not right. then it never started again. I called Joe and he said " You are doing something to ruin my engine!" I said "Right, thats just what I want to do, pull the engine 2 times and rent trailers and tow it back and forth. He said he would refund the mony. When it came time to pay he said "Take me to court". I cant do anything because the workorder is in my sons name. He is it the Navy and was deployed while the repairs started. He came back and made several attempts to work it out with Joe and the court said he has to demand payment in writing 3 times then serve him. Well he was sent out for deployment again and was there for a year and the stationed in Hawaii. I installed a used engine and sold the car.Joe is a crook and an idiot. Bottom line if you dont know what you are doing then dont do it. If you read this Joe Step up and be a man. I have the old engine sitting here and you can gladly have it if you refund me the money owed. Think about this while you live here and rip people off this young man is serving this country and making it safe for you to do so.
