Anyone know this shop?

Devito's Porsche service in Orange California?
Are these guys on the up and up?
Do they do good work?

I live in So. California and use Callas Rennsport in Torrance. They are the best. I have never heard of Devito's. I can wholeheartedly recommend Tony Callas. I know the owner of Pelican uses Tony Callas as well. Give them a call.

Thanks guys for the info. I am looking a purchasing a 930 from a guy who had Devito's do about $10K in misc repairs, including a mystery rollback on the ODO...
The story is that when she rolled over to 100k miles, it went to 200k...
Looking at past threads I do see some other people who have experienced the same type of fast-forward on their ODO's and now that at least someone has heard of these guys I feel a bit more comfortable...

Get a PPI

Quicksilver-Be sure and get an independent pre-purchase inspection ("PPI")done by a competent shop. That should include a leak down test as well. It is $ well spent. I thought I had a good 993TT but after the PPI by Callas, I passed on it. Be careful and not impulsive.

The PPI will tell you if not to buy it.

Good luck.

if you own a turbo , jason at rs enterprises in ventura is the turbo guru in socal. just him and an apprentice. ive had 2 930's and he transformed them into reliable rockets. but first and foremost ...honest. you can stand under the lift to see for yourself what the deal is. worth a call, 930chef
