Long and short of it, the head gasket let go back in Feburary. New head, gasket, ATS manifold, ARP head sutds, etc. That lasted 7 weeks and the 53 block cracked. At the same time I sent my ATS back for a rusting issue. I told them I needed it no later than today and would pay extra for the quicker shipping. They had all my contact numbers and still shipped it ground. It will not show up until Monday and the engine goes in Saturday. What a pain in the :butt:.

I run their turbo but other than that I dont have anything they make. I had the arcflow intake and traded it towards a modded cp3 something that would actually make a difference. I have heard tons of horror stories to do with their trannies and never care to own one

:agree2:

I called their customer service 4 times in one day and told them to make sure to get it shipped asap. If they had any questions or concerns to call me. I specifically told them I would pay extra for shipping. But noooooooo, they can't even follow simple instructions.


I should have bought a BD manifold from [email protected] from the forum:thud:. Dave helped me out on other things and his stuff got here FAST!! Sorry Dave:CRY:.

For one it was a warranty issue, other wise I would have had it blasted. A friend of mine does commercial blasting. As far as powdrecoating, I wish I knew someone who did it locally.

I don't think the powder coat will last that long I'm sure they use the high heat but its still to hot to stay on.I burn it off with a torch blast it and my local charges me 20.00 seems there would be someone doing it around there. good luck
