Just wanted to say thanks to Abbas and Reza for the exceptional service they provided me during the last few months.

Reza for always keeping me up to date on the progress of my motor build and providing me with expert advice and on time delivery even though I changed my mind more than once during the build! I now have a bullet proof 2.3l to keep me happy.

Abbas for providing competitive pricing and always keeping me updated on parts availability.

Great guys to deal with and friendly too!

Will be down soon for a few dyno pulls to see what the new set up will do.

Cheers guys!

Update:

Well the 2.3L motor didn't last more than 350miles unfortunately. Anyone interested in knowing what happened can PM or email me.

However, Abbas is still a great guy and I encourage you to continue to use RTM for quality parts.

Yes it was. I still have the block and original rotating assembly if you ever want it back for a rebuild.

I also have a eagle/weisco 2.0 rotating assembly as well.

Another + from me, new Stage 3 Southbend drag clutch in the car after the daily stage 2 took a dump (friction disc was worn to the end of its life).

Got a new clutch, fork. TOB, pivot ball and all installed the right way and adjusted with professionalism, as always. This ones grabs more than a drunk sexual predator at a nudist party tongue Only need to take it easy for another 600km......

+1 again, got my struts from them and did my suspension at a shop facing their direct line of sight per Reza's recommendation. Suspension was done in record time and workmanship.

Will always rep them to anyone I come across. smile

+1 for both Reza and Abbas. Got my Lancer tuned and can't say enough about how Reza pays attention to details... He let's his customers make the decision on what they'd like to get out of the car!
Abbas hooked me up with O2 sensor and a nice set or rims!

Thanks Guys.

I tuned your car to an excellent tune on Ecmlink Greg, that car never ran like this ever. You loose your turbo a few days ago and find big metal pieces in your valve cover....

Explain to everyone how your blaming your DSM failure on me......
Would be nice to actually give some details, rather that some stupid nonsense.....

+1 for both Reza and Abbas. Parts always shipped in a timely manner.
Reza has done an exceptional job refreshing my fwd turbo tranny. Had a leaky input shaft seal. He also installed an LSD insert i had kicking around.
Reza also tuned my motor quite nicely. It's very drivable now and has a steady idle. It's a completely different car.To bad they are not in the West end of the GTA.
Cheers boys.

That is actually the reason why i never work on anyone else cars except my own. There are many reasons why cars can fail (especially old, heavily modified, or both), but regardless of one, the blame is always shifted to last person touching the car.

I have to give credit to Reza for doing what his doing. No matter how perfect he can be, he will still be blamed for failures even if they are completely unrelated to anything he touched on the car.

Thanks for the good words guys. Just for the record and since Greg has jumped to conclusions really quick, I'll give everyone a little details.

This is Mike Degli's Old car which never ran for what like 10 years. Greg's been picking my brain for 1.5 years trying to get the car running. I did not build the motor or turn a single bolt in this car, which Greg will not mention....

I book Greg in for a Sunday afternoon and spend a few hours tuning the car. I tune it to 0 knock an it makes 400 WHP, yada yada. Only issue I found was a loose knock sensor which after tightened back up, we were on our way to 400 WHP.

Loose knock sensor is the only thing I touched on the car. Greg takes car home, starts running like crap as knock sensor loosened back up. Brings it back 2 weeks later, we figure out it was just the knock sensor causing the issues. Greg is happy and satisfied and goes home with his Dad.

Messages me like 3 days later saying he found 3 big pieces of black lava looking like metal in the valve cover next to the valve springs and that the turbo is messed up.

So here is a car I dial into 0 knock, knock check engine light on the dash, runs perfect and idles well, only 201 km on it and it has some sort of catastrophic engine failure as moon rocks are found in the valve cover.

Another thing to note, while I am tuning Greg's car, he has his Honda buddy technician on text message. I could feel his Honda Buddy getting proportionately upset as the car makes its way to 400 WHP. He decides to tell Greg that the 10.7 AFR that I dialed his car to with 0 knock is going to wash the rings..... I pretty much right off Honda buddy at that point, this is the same guy who couldn't get Greg's car running for years, but he's trying to tell me how to tune a DSM.

Anyways long story short, Greg finds moon rocks in his valve cover a few days after he takes it home, which takes out the turbo as well and he's trying to blame the complete DSM failure on me saying I didn't take my time when I tuned the car , LOL.

I had no choice but to just block him on Facebook as he's just wasting my time now with nonsense. He thinks I somehow came to Kitchener over night and fucked the motor.

I personally think that hater Honda buddy dropped a few metal slugs in the valve cover and fucked his motor up. Greg is somehow blaming golf ball sized metal pieces in valve cover on me.

How pieces of metal 1/4 the size of my palm flow through the oil pump, through the lifters and into the valve cover beats me, but Greg says my tune has something to do with it....... rotate

I helped this guy out without ever meeting him for 1.5 years. Whenever I shrugged him off due to his weekly messages and texts, he would come back with the attitude, "but I'm bringing my car to you for a $400 tune Reza, you better answer my questions!"

Dude I helped you out relentlessly for 1.5 years answering all your questions, got the car running well, I booked a Sunday off just for you and your Dad to come in for the tune. I spent half the day ironing out your car and you have the atrocity to blast me and tell me I still didn't spend enough time on the car.

Amazing guys like you don't deserve DSM's.

Here is a pic of what you found in your valve cover Greg:
[Linked Image]

Here is your description:
Hard chunks but not magnetic, brittle, looks like lava bricks. Compression is low 150-150-120-100

I find it hideous that your blaming this on me. After looking at the pic really close, a few of us guys here think its a hand full of asphalt one of your hater friends dropped in the valve cover! Pretty consistent with your description as well.

Might want to look into who you were hanging out with that day wink

It looks like sludge I dug out of an oil pan from a car that had been running for like 8 years.

Pretty tough to blame a tune on that.

For some reason I cannot remove my above quoted post. Albeit out of frustration i did lash out of anger at Reza over the issues i was having I can say humbly that its pretty doubtful it was his fault. and I publicly apologize for that. far as the moonrocks im in the midst of investigating...

+1 for Alex's comments! when I hear some of these guys, I just think Reza should just go back to playing with people's numbers lol...
He's killed my Lancer build, and when I say killed I mean did an amazing job on it!
The difference was I realized if I was to try to "work" on it myself and "save" some money, I'd end up Fning something up and spending more.
Reza built it from scratch and I'm at 6K on the motor and getting what I paid for...
Much Credit to Reza and even when busy still finds time to answer questions I ask.
Haters gonna hate but in my books, no one but Reza touches my Lancer.

If you are having a 2.3L motor built using Manley Turbo Tuff rods, please ensure that you have the minimum 60thousands clearance between the rods and the bottom of the cylinder bore. If not, the rods will impact the bores at high rpm, which will hammer the crank and score the pistons, not to mention cause metal to circulate throughout your motor.
