My L20B Build

Recommended Posts

in total what they actually did,

 

Cylinder bore £50 a cylinder 1mm over size (no hot tank wash even that I requested)

fit pistons to conrods £10 each

wrongly order shells (shells where only to be ordered if the crank was ground) £171

Crank was only polished

So I have ended up being charged £160 for a crank polish

and painted the block in some really crap black paint

 

 

I asked them for an invoice and was told it was a cash deal, If I really wanted an invoice that would be another £80

normally I would have put trading standards onto them but I cant as it may cause issues with mates garage so I have had to put it down to a very expensive lesson,

 

I have slated the company on my website, facebook and a few UK clubs.

don't take your stuff to them again.

 

Most L motors are pretty stout. a crank polish? for 160pounds?????????Fuck that just run it.

Bearing look mostly OK ?Fuck it run it!!!!!!!!!

 

post on the web that these guys you don't recommend!!!!!!!!

 

 

I heard things cost more in the UK? You aint kidding

When I was working in Farnboro Qnectic Windtunnel everything was twice as much as the US and the UK people got paid half as much.

 

I tell people from England and Germany things are cheap in the US than where its made. They don't believe me

there is no chance i'll ever use them again.

I have slated them on facebook loads of UK forums and on my own website, Even mates garage is reducing the work they send them.

 

I agree it's more expensive here. I can get parts usually from Datsport cheaper here than I can local, and fuel at the moment for 95 ron we are £1.09 a litre which is just under £5 a UK gallon (4.55 litres)

 

Ps tired to send you a pm but it says you cant receive any

Is it just me, or those cylinders not even honed?

Curious to see what the combustion chambers look like. After all, that's where all the real magic happens.

 

Nice port work though.
