been out of town for about 2 weeks, my dad had to go in for surgery so that's why i haven't been reachable for a short while.

i'll be finishing up any loose ends on the cars in the shop over the next few days.

Ivan has a black FD in his living room now with 300 miles on the car. Anyways, if his charges an arm and a leg you can bet its worth it. Quality is priceless and he is a RX-7 specialist and I will be contracting him to do rebuilds for my customers.

Another Ben to remember, but Im with Rotary Extreme...lol

Website re-opens this friday to next week at the latest.

i'm pretty much done with clearing the cars out of the shop and getting ready for the next set so to those who are still interested just call or drop me a PM and i'll get back to you in the next few days until things get a bit too busy again.

His full name is Ivan Kojnok. He operates out of Sunnyvale.
I just did major repair work with him(my first time). He is very honest and does excellent work (better than a certain shop in Pleasanton).

His e-mail is: [email protected]

Good luck and Happy repairs!!!

Ben is around. He just did my tranny swap this weekend. I stop by his shop often so I can pass a message if needed. Just send me contact info and details.

Ben (Karack) who owns Rotary Evolution just rebuilt my engine. Very cool guy! I stayed with him from 3:30 to about 10 something (didn't hear about his disclaimer lol) and saw him put my engine back together and back into my car and got it running the first start! Great guy for staying late and making sure everything went smoothly! Thank you!

i was a little skeptical that it might not start since the front hub isn't indexed like the 13B engines are, luckily my guess work on lining up the hub was accurate. i wanted to clean up more around the engine bay but it was just taking too long dealing with that oil cooler.

at least the oil cooler fit perfectly in the end! i started some cleaning on the driver side like wiping down the hoses and lines and a/c compressor and the underside of the hood but it's already starting to get dirty. let me know when you have time and i'll come up and we can work on her some more.

Ben aka Karack is up north near Marysville. I'm sure he can do your turbo swap and he does tune. I believe your SAFC and also Microtec
