Karl Troy and his team are excellent mechanics. I had a VW turbodiesel that had a broken timing belt tensioner. The local VW dealer had installed it only nine months before, but said that because I had 13000 miles (the warranty was 12 months/12000 miles), I was SOL. And by the way, your engine's shot, the dealer said. I had it towed to Karl and he found out that there was no valve damage and completed the fix for $1200. Ran like a top after that, so I sold it. :)

Well my rebuilt s52 only lasted 289 miles unsure emoticon Ladies and Gentlemen...Be careful when choosing your shop to build your motor. I informed this shop (European Road & Racing in Charleston SC) that the head had machine work and the block was decked. Turns out every piston was slapping the head! Number 6 piston failed and literally blew up. They did go over tolerances or check clearances which leaves me with a blown motor. I tried my best to work with this shop to fix the problem but have only received a cold shoulder from what I thought was a "reputable shop". I now have a shop that wont fix the issue and a blown motor. They literally just bolted stuff down and gave it back to me. They told me they didnt measure anything. I didnt feel comfortable building this motor because of the knowledge to make sure of clearances etc.. Karl Troy @ European Road & Racing in Charleston SC has given me the cold shoulder and will not work with me. I am at loss of words and have a blown motor. He left me with a hack job and has no care to help out someone that is young with 3 kids. Im only posting this to let other know to educate themselves and research your decision on the next shop you use.
