Whatever happened to awdtt's car? Find out here.

The block had suffered a cylinder score so I ordered a replacement and Adkin Industries, the shop I was using, recommended an engine builder called TEC in West Palm Beach. The lead time was 3 weeks before he could start work. 6 months later, I went and pulled the block and heads, etc., out of that shop. It hadn't been touched. Avoid TEC.
I then talked to Fabshop Miami. They did not want to work on the motor because the heads hadn't been tested and approved by Boost Logic. Boost Logic would only sell me their short block, so I'm stuck with an identical short block.
So, I bought an entire built long block from Boost Logic and had it shipped to Fabshop. Fabshop then let me know they needed the engine covers and assorted other parts. In a personal meeting on 2/7 attended by my son and the owner of Adkin Industries, I stressed that getting the engine parts down to Fabshop was the #1 priority. We also needed to deal with a trailer door that had some wood rot. The owner assured us he'd jump right on it. See the text he sent my son on the 28th stating the car *should* be done by the following week (would have been the week of 3/1-3/5).
We followed up Monday March 8th and couldn't get a response. Yesterday morning after I threatened that I'd give less than a stellar review of their business, they tried to claim that they are "stuck waiting for everyone else to tell me what they want to do." That's total BS as it's patently obvious that they *knew* what needed to be done in the text of the 28th.
Last night we got a text telling us that they're trying to "squeeze" us in and that it's really hard, womp, womp. All other messages have been ignored. Messages like, "Is the transmission back in the car?", shouldn't be too complicated to answer. We've physically gone to the shop and it's always closed. The owner is avoiding us.
We now have to get a tow truck and arrange to get the car and all of the loose parts out of the shop.

I’d just have Cicio pick it up and get it back together.
Downtime sucks and makes you question every minute of time spent and every dollar put into it.
Problem is it’s busy season again.
Good luck !!!

Sorry to hear this, If I was there I did ship all of the parts to me and then forward where its needed. This is because last few years people are ignorant saying, I didnt received the package while they clearly signed for it.
Been working with enshiu on my car for the past 2 days. This guy is a mad scientist. He knows his stuff about GT-Rs. We spent the past few days changing brakes, rotors and upgrading my gotboost full intercooler piping. Enshiu will post pics of my car later.
