    CW Pence robbed me

    Took my friends clean azz gsr block and b16 head there to get them cleaned and decked. The motor had 40k miles and was immaculate, i just wanted it decked to be ocd. My friend picked it up from the shop today and its not even the same block. When the block got there Jeff commented on how clean it was and how it didn't even need a honing. The block we got back had ring damage in cylinder 4. Upon further inspection the bearings are also shot, the ones in the block were clean as hell. Where the water pump connects there is a chip like the impeller hit it and the water jackets are nasty. the water pump, thermostat housing, and pipe we took off prior to sending it there are immaculate. One of the main bolts is completely different, really dark black like the motor had overheated and the washer had corrosion on it. My friend said he grabbed it off another motor when he gave it back. I don't even know why the main caps had to be removed. Also both the motor and head are dirty as hell, i have a black finger after running it across the block. This place charged me 250, didn't clean my friends stuff and tried to swap blocks for a much crappier one. Don't ever go there

    that's why you take your engine apart before you send it to the machine shop, stamp your engine with something that is related to you, i had two engines that i built, hot tanked, decked and honed there, never had any problems, sucks you got the shorter end of the stick

    we did take it apart. and we inspected the whole block to see if it needed anything else and it was perfect we placed some of the parts back on the block and to my surprise they actually lined up. this is in fact his block. the shop just messed it up so bad i thought it was a different block. so basically the shop charged him for a hot tank they never did. messed up cylinder 4, damaged the water pump housing, replaced the bearings with crappier ones, and lost one of the main bolts. great reputable shop

    We have never had a problem with Pence.
    Just saying.


    Why did your buddy take receipt of the block if it was that damage, or why isn't he back there today trying to get everything resolved?

    From the sounds of your posts you haven't tried to talk to them.

    CW Pence does great work, we dealt with them alot when I was at PF. Maybe the chop shop he went told him they were CW or something.
