No you don't the guy is a hackmaster, he has grenaded a few of his
customers cars. There is the guy that brought his car to simply to have it
"Built" He got it back some 3 months and 10,000 miles on the odo later with
a completely trashed engine (Leak downs in the 40% range) and it was seen at
a local drag strip three times and it always left on a flatbed......
