I would not take anything to Ballos. I have seen numerous problems on engine worked on by them...both import and domestic engines. Try Progressive Performance (CHRE) in Ashland.

Well I and a few people I know have had countless work done at Davis and never had issues including a fully built h22 turbo. To say there garbage is all an opinion. Every shop is gonna have one person or another say something bad. My built type r is being assembled there and I have 100% faith in them. It's all up to dude to pic a shop of his own and take the chance the rest of us have. Glwb.

I used Davis to have my heads resurfaced recently. I can not tell you how great a guy Paul is, he gave me a killer price and was very helpful in the whole process. He gave me advice on stuff that IMO other places would not have just so that they could have gotten more money out of me. I will certainly use Davis whenever I need more work done in the future.

Our dealership needs a good machine shop to take head's to. Mundy's just doesn't have the turn around we need. They are never honest with us in regards to time.
