Wish I would have read all this before I took my car down there..
Now I'm gonna have to go look @ all the parts on my car to make sure they aren't fucked up. They did tell me they had to drive my car around ( while it was stock ) to run the gas out of it, because it was easier to lower and raise the gas tank if its not full of fuel. Wonder how far you can get a stock 240 on a half tank of gas..
As i stated in my build thread, when I got my car back, 0/3 gauges were installed properly, or hooked up correctly. Oil pressure was not even hooked up, as they told me they did not have the proper fittings and I would have to order additional parts. The water temp sensor that I provided with the gauge was not used, instead the gauge was hooked up to the stock location, which reads an improper temperature, and for some reason the Boost Gauge wouldnt even work.
When the new fuel pump was installed they re-used the gasket for the tank, which had been stretched out about 2 inches in diameter, meaning the gasket did not seal with the tank, making the entire car smell of gasoline while running. They claimed to have test drove it for 50 miles with no problems, leaks, or smells.
after i replaced the gasket, no more gas leak/smell.
The car then started leaking fluid from the heater core, come to find out they used the wrong diameter hose to connect the radiator to the heater core.. Found the right diameter hose and fixed that problem.
When you take your car to a shop who employs a "mechanic" all of these things should be taken care of for you. In my limited mechanical knowledge, all of these things I've had to fix seem like no brainers!
Every time I've called them about one of these problems, they say its an easy fix and just drop the car off with them for a few days. They are located @ the speedway, and I'm on the southwest side of town, dropping my car off is not exactly an easy thing to do..
Personally I'm done with this shop, and look at it like this. I've got a running SR20 that basically is a project car instead of a reliable daily driver.
My car is currently at DDS, and I've heard nothing but good things about them, so hopefully he sort this out for me.
