Give him a call @ 530-701-8488 and see, he should be able to. He seems pretty knowledgeable about ems.

Thumbs up

Just got home from the 140mi trek that was the trip home from Rotary Evolution. Ben (Karack) tied up some loose ends with my car and retuned it to 15 psi and I was smiles all the way home. The car responds like a dream, it feels even more responsive than my M3. Despite my shoddy injectors, he was able to tune it to a smooth idle and decent hot-start. The car is a BLAST to drive.

+10 to Ben and his GREAT work. He's very thorough and does clean work. Highly worth the drive (2hrs for me) and worth every penny he charges, if not more.

Thanks Ben! Time for a dyno...

Jaime

I work out in VA at the new mazda rotary reman plant and my parents friends are looking for someone that can repair a 79 rx7, anyone have a recommendation in the sacramento area?
They are actually located in Vacaville but if there is anything nearby let me know. I think its time for a rebuild on it but I have no idea being on the other coast now and seeing it in person.
Thanks.

Well I gave your # posted to some family friends with a 79, not sure if they set anything up yet but they have been trying to find someone that knows how to work on the rotary and I found you on here.

Hey Ben I haven't heard from you in months! Is there any time I could fit in your schedule to bring my car up to get my oil cooler back? I'm only a 30 min drive away!

Anybody hear from Ben recently? He has not returned my calls, voice messages, or PM. The last time I spoke with him on the phone was sometime in January and the last time I heard from him was his reply above in this thread in February. My engine was rebuilt by Ben in November and I have not been back at his shop since. I want to swap my own oil cooler back and other things to be addressed as well. Where are you Ben?

That's cool but at least give me a courtesy by replying back to my messages and calls. And I also hope for Ben to schedule me because I'm thinking he seems to be taking new projects and since my main project has already been completed I'm just being ignored or something.
