Lucky 7 or Angel Motorsports LA?

Hello y'all! I'm JeVarX-7. Not a new member but can't log into my old account. I'm here because of my recent(year and a half) 88 TII purchase. I've owned 3 NA 7s and now a TII being rebuilt at end of month.
So, whats your experience with these 2 shops and these 2 shops ALONE? I've chosen to get my rebuild from one of them. Lucky 7 racing and Angel Motorsports LA? I've been following both for a few years and now I'm actually going to whichever I choose. I have 3 weeks to choose. What's your input? How was your experience at either one or both if you've been to both. Thanks for the help guys and gals!

I had a rather poor experience with L7. I have heard great things about Angel, I actually might go to them when I start my single turbo conversion.

The RX7 is in So Cal. I'm now in Oregon. Those 2 shops are an hr and a half away from where the RX7 is.

There are plenty of other builders. I was asking about these 2 in particular for a reason my friend. Do you have experience with them?

My experience is only with Lucky 7. They've built/rebuilt a street port 13B 6-port engine for my race-only car three times now. I shopped around two of the three times, and for the money, I got a lot of work done in comparison to going somewhere like Mazdatrix or other "premium" shops. The work Lucky 7 does is good (as far as I can tell), and -- importantly -- the folks there are honest. They've also always come through for me within the deadline I've given them, and kept to my budget.

Respect that you've narrowed down to these two providers. But, if I may, your particular reason is?

Also, isn't Angel Motorsports on the east coast?

Angel has a Virginia shop and his brother has an LA shop. I live in Oregon and left my car in the LA so cal area. more cost effective to use an LA shop. Been narrowing down for months. If I had an unlimited supply of money then I would go many other locations. Do you have any experience with either?

It might help to list your goals, how involved you want to be, budget, mods, etc.

Louie from L7 left and started DNA Garage down in Santa Ana. It's run out of the same building as RRR. Not sure if you'd consider going further down south.

I followed Louie from L7 to DNA. I brought my FC in for some service/diagnostics and Louie was super helpful and informative. Once I found out he split off and started his own shop, I started bringing my car there.

Why? I just want to know personal experience of the shop whether it was to have some brakes changed or a ecu put in, or even a stop in to check it out. I didn't ask for rebuild advice or what I need to do. Just what YOUR experience was.

Oh cool. I'll have to check out DNA if he was a L7 builder for a bit. Thanks for the on topic information. I appreciate it!

Hey, you're the one asking for help.

My experience is that both of the shops take ***** that stink.
