Well yeah Arthur would be one of my first choices, He is going to be doing my hatch soon. But Richard is also VERY experienced with Turbo Hondas. It all depends on who you accually want to INSTALL your kit. Most of the Builders in town are fairly competitive with pricing so that wont really be a problem. If I were you I would definetly do some research and find out who would be best suited for your Install. I would bet Arthur would do you right though. But that is my recommendation. But you already knew that, I am a Big TRACKMASTERS fan, and I dont care who knows it.lol

When it comes to quality work, usually you do get what you pay for. That also goes for parts and almost anything else.

I hear a fair amount of stuff too. But talking to the person that will do the work and getting a good feel for them and their work is key. It doesn't matter if it's a Honda or a Porsche.

I have also heard that MAXCHAMP is kinda on the high side, but I hear that he does good work! But Like Samir said you do get what you pay for. But on the other hand I have not seen to many cars built by MaxChamp, and the ones that I have seen dont really stand out from any other builder in town. It is all about who you want\feel good about doing your install. But that is my $0.02.

Baggedclips, first of all, you know i dont like you. That being said, i am still a buisness man and take pride in my shops work. I have 2 honda guys that are awesome and would trust absolutely with my car. We are extremely cheap on labor, but back all of our work up. Please email me if you are interested in setting up some work, as we have some spare time slots right now. I would like some specs on what engine you have now, mileage, desired HP level, etc.

im not asking him to give me his money. Im saying that i am a buisnessman. Im not going to kiss his ass for buisness, but I will be straightfoward with him and do what he wants to do. I dont "plan" on getting buisness. I get it anyway. More is always better. I dont have to like a guy to do work for him. And asskissing doesnt mean you get good service. I am being upfront with him. What more would you want?

Man it wouldn't be a good business move to take my car to you if you dont like me, i mean come on dude you could drop a bolt in my tranny or something. But since you dont like me we need to come to some type of terms or something to get this crap settled because my fingers are getting tired on this computer.

Ok guys, watch the language, cut down on the drama, and back and forth posts. Let's keep this thread useful (and not locked).

Samir, if we get too far off topic say so...
BggedClips, its very bad buisness tp drop a tranny bolt or whatever period. Doesnt matter if i like you or i dont like you. Im not going into this anymore, but a good buisnessman does buisness with whomever...professionaly, despite how he feels about the people with whom he works. Im just telling you upfront, because i am an upfront guy, that i dont like you, but am more than happy to help you. Furthermore, if you let how i feel about you get in the way of having good work done, then thats your problem. I dont need the buisness.

Imapala Style....we are sorting out more insurance at this point, and i dont feel comfortable talking about the location until then. We have alot of valuable cars sitting in it already(one notchback roadrace mustang, one GT, and one Vette.)
