I have visited every shop in dallas except dallas mustang.they are all full of shit. From addison,Arlington,lewsville. Nether of the shops want to tune my car because i bought my supercharger on craigslist. I even gave credit card info to one of the three popular shops. Know u what they did.told me they was gonna order parts and never did. Needless to say they never ordered the parts and left me hanging. Anthor shop told me 1500.00 dollars for upper/lower control arms w/ a ford racing driveshaft i had bought on craigslist (new drivesaft at that) now who pays 1500.00 for control arms .the 3rd shop i made 3 appointments to get my car tuned and they reschedualed 3 times. Well i spun a bearing in my motor last night and i found a guy in garland that has gone head over hills to just get the job done. He gonna build my motor and whatever else i need done he has my biz. To those other three shops fuck off. Yall seem to have forgotten how yall got started.

Them three shops will get shitty refferals from me.

They don't want to tune your car because you bought your S/C on CL?

You just spun a bearing?

I think they saw more than a Craigslist issue...

What I was alluding to is that they might have seen a potential bomb to be strapped to their dyno. If someone walked into my shop with a car that looks like it'll fail to even hit redline, asking for a dyno; I'd be weary.

i am not even mad bout spinning a bearing. i am mad because i was gonna pay there price.and still no service.never did i argue there price.would u pay 1500.00 for controll arms. i can put on myself just my apt complex dont allow any automotive repairs in the parking lot.thats why i was will to pay someone to put the control arms on.

What business doesn't require an education of some sort?


Anyway, on topic... Post up your car and what exactly you asked for and I'll give you the best reasoning that I can come up with. Other than that, you'll have to wait for the shops to chime in on here (and they will).
