Wanted to share my experience working with Ron. I had him build and tune a hybrid motor for my 02 wrx. To start Ron is not friendly and is hard to work with. Knows what he's doing but doesn't take time to answer questions. The biggest fault was that there was never a sit down to plan my motor build even though I was paying him thousands of dollars. Because of this everything was poorly planed and caused multiple issues and thousands of dollars lost. Biggest issue being that the 2.0 heads were never machined to fit the 2.5 block. I mentioned to his employee that I wanted this done but it never got done. Many other professionals told me this needs to be done. The motor lasted two weeks making full power. It burnt a valve due to too high compression. Ron did not stand behind his work. After finding that the valve guides had been installed backwards and many other issues Ron refused to even communicate with me saying "why should I help you?" Along with many other unprofessional comments. I tried to keep things civil and be polite the whole time and received extremely rude treatment back. I ended up using db performance to help fix the issues and give me a good tune. They did much better work and far easier to work with. He clearly doesn't care about his customers, acts like he's doing you a favor to work on his car. I spoke with the machine shop that he uses about one of the issues and he said he stopped working with Ron because he has also had issues with him and he is too hard to work with.
