just got back from tho today. Got a wheel bearing done and flipped my tires. He also helped me out on some other issues i had. Like everyone else i was amazed on his price. Also he's friendly and we cracked small jokes here and there. It's a little ghetto and looks shady but it's legit. It's also english friendly. I'm around that area and most of the shops some times have language barriers. thumbs up and i might of found my new mechanic.

If you guys are going there, just mention that Jerry with the Red SC referred you, or mention that you are on ClubLexus. He takes care of CL members for sure

I don't think he has ever done aftermarket header install before, though I'm sure he's more than capable of doing it. After all, he can do engine rebuilds, which means removing the exhaust manifold to remove the engine.

Not sure if he's done any ISF though..
