    The ONLY place for Supra mechanical work or aftermarket parts in NM!!

    Ok, I am being forced to post this up as it seems that some people still dont know that I am here in NM. Or perhaps they think I only do custom high end performance mods? Im not sure...

    I recently caught wind that one of our local Supra owners took his car to toyota for an overpriced valve stem seal job. Not only did they probably do a piss poor job but they charged twice as much for it also!

    SO again, if anyone needs anything done dont hesitate to get in touch with me. I am really busy but will make time for our local Supra crowd. Plus your getting twice the work, for a better price, done by someone that knows your car inside and out and will give it the utmost attention to detail and TLC.

    I am also a distributor for PHR and MVP and will hook any of the local guys up on parts, etc.

    So with that said, let me know what I can do to help and well go from there.

    Thanks

    Ben is THE only person in NM or CO who I would let work on my car. I dont dish out compliments easily either. The work he does is second to none in the state and thats all there is to it.

    The attention to detail and quality of work is the best I have ever seen. I was a little nervous the first time I brought my car down to him but after seeing his shop and talking to him in person I cant imagine ever taking my car's to anyone else. The shop is immaculate and completely state of the art, you can eat off anything.

    BTW any one know when he gets back into the country? I left him a message on his cell but I dont know if he's checking them or not?

    Yeah due to my location my cell phone only works when I am in town. There is always the shop phone but I tend to be too busy to answer it sometimes.

    Ill be back in town as of this weekend and I may make it to the supra meet on Sunday. Who all is going?

    Kerm, make sure you get a warranty on that ATK block that toyota is putting in your car.

    I know for a fact those motors are crap. I lost 2 of them in a row back in the day in my 300ZX TT cars.

    Also make sure the car is setup right. Your having a toyota dealer work on an aftermarket setup and I can tell you now they dont know this stuff.

    Also your PFC F-con will not want to run the system properly as the flashing will be for the previous setup and probably for sea level.

    Just a heads up..... Trying to watch your back. Dont mention my name though if you bring any of this up, I dont want to burn any bridges...

    Thanks

    Does anyone know how to put me in touch with Ben? My son just bought the (very nice) Quicksilver '94 single turbo Supra that was listed here (up in Oregon) and is driving it back, would like to stop by the shop and meet Ben today in Santa Fe if possible.

    I can't find the name of the shop listed here, or any contact info other than Ben's email address. Just sent him an email, maybe he'll reply in time.

    Thanks for any help,

    Steve

    I primarily do MKIV's when it comes to supras but can help you with tech questions etc if need be. My niche is late model Toyota, Lexus, Porsche, Audi, and certain late model BMW's (M3's M5's etc). (soon to add Ferrari) Hope that helps.

    Ben you were more than right I wish I could have had you do the work.

    Long story short they mis installed my EBC... I inturn popped my headgasket. I got 400 bucks out of them out of court got me a HKS HG and some arps. She is finally all back to gather and running good. I want to talk to you about flashing the roms on my FCON and what not.. Maybe just take you for a cruise and she what you think... I know you are the busiest of men but if and when you have time please let me know.
