Actually they do great work and most cars that pop at the track are some seriously fast cars.

Just hear it at the tracks up here a lot.


Killer car and now you have me looking for that cyber grey

Well I was hoping to have my motor back yesterday. I had a new block, and new crank installed. Got it all done, and the rods were too short. After doing some math my engine builder called me and told me I had a 408, not a 370 like I asked for and spent $6,500 for. So After waiting for a month on new parts, ends up they wont work because AES built me the wrong motor. I am just fed up with the whole deal. I am pretty close to just parting the car out.

Ain't that bout a bitch?! Funny how you can do so much quality work yourself, but as soon as you need to lean on someone else, they end up taking the wind out of your sails. That just plain sucks. For all of us.

So your original motor was a 408? Damn, you've come too far to just part it out!

Explain the situation to AES and tell them you want the pistons you PAID for!

By the way- What size is your down pipe? Does it step down from 5" to 4"?

You've got one of the cleanest build I've seen that makes awesome power. Hate to see you give up on it due to others mistakes.

Couldn't you benefit from more cubes to spool that turbo sooner out of the hole? Not that it makes it right. This has been an impressive build. Set backs suck but stick with it. I've had to do a ton of stuff on mine to get an F1X in the cts v engine bay and have had my frustrations along the way too. Hoping to fire it up this week actually.

Hang in there

Cant wait to see your results Ben. Definitely a one of a kind CTS-V. Hopefully both of us will be ready to go very soon.

That sucks @ss Justin. What about the trans people? I have also been following you on LS1Tech and wasn't the trans behind the whole thing?

I'd tell them have fun with the lawsuit then and their reputation on leading websites.

Justin we never told you to kick rocks once again every piece of paper work all your invoicing and estimates say 4 inch stroke crank with the proper part numbers and descriptions. You said you caught it had a 24 tooth reluctor but just simply read over the fact it said Callie's dragon slayer 4.000 stroke crank with 24 tooth reluctor I find that hard to believe. We have went above and beyond to try and help you get your engine fixed for something we had nothing to do with. We told you where to get the crank fixed that's 2 weeks out not 3 months. We offer to try and hunt a crank down for you but you waited till the last minute to get this stuff handled. Why did the next shop not measure the pistons compression height and the crank says 4.000 right on the front. i no the first thing i do when i get a broken engine is measure everything to get an accurate assessment of what the engine is this engine has been out for how long and it's just getting addressed now. If there was a miscommunication I apologize but every bit of hard evidence shows 4 inch stroke crankshaft. I could have repaired this engine and had it back to you for probably a 1/4 of what your paying now and with in a couple weeks.Remember after we found out it was the transmission that took out the thrust we still offered to take care off all the machine work for free. So telling you to kick rocks is hardly the case. You have yet to provide an email, invoice, estimate or anything to suggest you we're getting a 370 and not a 408

Waited till the last minute to get this stuff done?! WTF! My engine would have been done had I known I had a 408. I never got any estimates only an invoice via email when the motor shipped. No paper work with the motor or anything. I thought I was getting and had a 370 because thats what I ordered! I am selling this damn thing once I get it put together because ITS NOT WHAT I ORDERED. You guys did offer to help me out on getting it fixed. That is awesome of you guys. I am not going to have you guys fix something for me that you shouldnt have to. Not AES's fault that my engine failed. If I thought I had a 408 why would I post other wise? Why would I purchase a stock crank to get my engine back together while waiting on mine to get fixed? I am not pissed off about anything other than I did not get what I ordered. I dont understand why its so hard to understand why I am frustraited here. After telling you on the phone that the 408 is not what I had ordered you didnt do anything other than say well the invoice said 4" stroke. That is awesome. Still doesnt resolve anything.

Far more than come on a public website and try to dispute his fact with criticism. The fact that it has come to this point is an embrassement to customer satisfaction. I work in the hospitality industry and if it came to this point than I failed myself, my staff, the customer, and most likely my mission statement for the company.

end rant.
