    Unhappy EFi Alchemy

    Just wanted to let evryone know about my experience w/this shop. Found them on this forum when i purchased my 2001 WS6 TA. Had extensive mods done, car was delivered w/problems twice. NOTE: i live in South FL & drove the car or had it transported to them in Jacksonville. The last phase of work involved dropping a TSP 418 stroker in it. The car ran horribly on the drive home, spitting out oil droplets from the tailpipes. it would turn off frequently while driving or just idling.

    i have been working with a local shop in miramar (cap issues this am). Upon taking the engine apart, the piston tops were scorched & the rings werent seated properly. Cylinders were bored unevenly. Also, they left the LS1 pcm in the car when they should have upgraded it. When I remarked during the test drive that it was running rough, I was told the pcm would "learn." Beware of them. I dropped over $40K in their shop on mods & this is the way they treated me. Its going to cost $12K to fix what they did.....Havent driven my car in almost 2 mos. Caveat emptor to the extreme.
