STATE: NSW
WORKSHOP: MEEK & GTPUMPS (next door to each other)
WORK DONE: EVO/GSR/VR4 work. personally they worked on my evo 8 from day 1... daily driven on 25psi @ 250Kw stock ecu 0 Knock... 20Gturbo, cams, exhaust etc ... ... ... ...
PRICE: Havent found better. they give advise which is priceless.
QUALITY OF WORK AND SERVICE: while service is minimal, these guys dont work on anything BUT evo and evo related cars, quality on workmanship (installing a part) is unmatched. from installing a sway bar (correctly which bolts first and last) to rebuilding your engine almost over night if needed... and yes they will see anything else thats wrong or not so good with your car and inform you about it.. anyway they have been referred to as doctors for evo many times..
