I'm glad this is working out for you, and I'm equally as glad to see Turblown taking care of your problem in a professional manner. Good luck getting the car back on the road!
I'm patient to my own detriment. Turblow turblew it but Elliot is working to get it right now. This could have gone much much worse. The length of time was unacceptable and Elliot admitted as much. The car is back with me, the engine is together and it's now just going to be a break in and adjustments to get everything right.

yeah, it makes me confident he did it right and didn't slap it together. Still, the poor communication and constant pushing out of dates is not okay. This experience could have been great if the car was done in May as I anticipated or any of the later dates promised. The whole experience is soured. During our discussion, I said to Elliot "We're at this point now, let's do the best to make this a good experience from here." I mean that. Once you **** up and get to a place like this, you need to salvage it. There's no point to spending my day all irate over it as it then bleeds out to my work and relationships. Now, I'm not like most clients. I'm patient and understanding. When the sheriff showed up to serve him, there were two ways to go about it. He has chosen the high road which is more difficult because it requires you concede your errors and own up to it. Should anyone work with Turblown, ask the questions first and get it in writing and don't be afraid to ask if it's going to be a situation like this. Let's all hope this a change in the service given by Turblown, lest they may have trouble finding clients.

alright, so I am driving the FD as much as possible before it gets to cold. Engine starts strong hot and cold. The tune is currently kind of crap and get's off load lean conditions and some other tune related issues. overall though, the engine is strong and showing good vacuum. seeing close to -20 psi of vacuum at idle. so far its holding up well and the RX7 seems to be happy to be alive. I took it to the final Cars & Coffee of the year here in MN.
