One of the things I've noticed about our market is that a lot of times our build offers and other deals are very price competitive with the rest of the market, until you factor in the cost of transportation or freight to and from the shop, especially from the West Coast. 

 

A typical enclosed transport from the west coast to New England can be at least $1500-2000 each way.  To combat these costs, and expand our reach into these areas, we've come up with an idea...

 

Well... WE HAVE WRENCH, WILL TRAVEL!

 

We'll bring Weapons Grade to you! 

 

Have access to a lift locally?  Don't want to lose sight of your car for a month or more?  Don't want to extend your build time to include a week cross country each way for transportation?  Enjoy the hands-on approach of working on your own car?   Don't like the idea of e-tuning your brand new build?  Want to make sure your engine is broken in correctly?

 

Typical airfare and hotel from Connecticut to the west coast is often less than $600, and shipping engines or transmissions is only a few hundred dollars... totaling about half the cost of vehicle transport! 

 

Cover our travel expenses and we'll tear down, ship cores, reassemble, and tune your GT-R locally (using local fuels and local atmospheric conditions!) 

 

Paired with refundable core charges on your engine and transmission, we can ship you a completed block and transmission in advance and provide this service on a single trip, cutting what is often a 2 month project down to a week or less!

 

Post here or inbox me for more details or to schedule!

Man this is a great idea!  Especially for the people who don't live near any good builders.

Doug has stood behind my build all the way and never leaves me hanging, even a year later.  He always gets back to me and continues to provide tuning support.  Just thought I would post in here for those considering this service.

+1 to this. I had a small issue with my fuel system (level reader was caught on a wire in the tank making the gauge inaccurate), Doug drove 2 hours to my house to fix it in my garage and while he was there also installed a steering wheel and paddles that i had. He definitely stands behind his work and will go out of the way to help you.

I have his ZR1 brakes and he definitely stood behind his product, amazing to work with and responded pretty quickly to any text - even months after purchase - even offered to fly down to Miami when my builder had issues with fitment (super early production 09).

Definitely one of the best people I've dealt with throughout my build.
