What's wrong with City Motor Supply?

A week ago I remember reading a comment by someone saying to stay away from City Motor Supply in Dallas, TX when it comes to rebuilds. If I recall Wells Cylinder Head Racing was recommended. It got me thinking, why isn't there a single company that people would trust in every major metroplex? The reviews of City Motor Supply aren't necessarily that bad so it got me curious. I hate the idea of giving work outside of my community so if I was going to do a rebuild I would prefer to find someone local.

They produce crap work. I had a V6 in a ranger that I got a new engine for from them. Heads/valves were not done correctly, required a new engine after a few hundred miles, and they used a loophole in their warranty to make sure that they didn't have to cover the labor for replacement. I had heard horror stories about them before but decided to ignore that because the price was cheap. You get what you pay for in this instance.

I'm not an expert, but I play one on the internet.

stay away from the high-volume guys, they hire minimum wage guys to do the work with zero training and as soon as they get "good", they leave and go somewhere to get paid.

WCH built me a great engine, got a lot more out of it than I thought possible.

Finally old enough to drive the car I want instead of the one I need.
