I have litterally never had better customer service

Than from Brian at rarlyl8 motorsports. I nagged him with a bunch of questions, which were answered promptly. I needed a source for some nuts and he is sending them. There are very few companies so dedicated to keeping customers happy these days. 930 guys roll classy in work and in play!

Well done

He must like the folks here in Houston. He is making a muffler for me now and I had a bunch of head stud questions Friday that he helped me sort out. Good to know there are people who still do business the right way.

Do a search, Brian is a great guy, he is a great contributor on the board,we need to support him whenever possible! I'm saving, unfortunately only pennies at a time, for some of his headers to compliment his muffler on my car.

I knew that this was the concensus, but felt it was worth repeating

Brian is old school, from when a man's word was his bond. No BS, no smoke up your dress, what you see is what you get. He's the kind of guy you want to have your back in a fire fight. One of the few honorable men left.

Actually I just had a full exhaust system fabbed up by him, delivered a few days ago to my casa in Texas. have not seen it yet as I am in Germany, but my dad received it and said it was absolutely beautiful work. When I get to it I will put up pics.

Brian was hands down the BEST person I ever did a deal with. He can count me as a customer for as long as he is in business. I cannot possibly recommend him enough.

Totally agree as Brian is a great resource to make our cars even more enjoyable to own. I recently had a turbo question for Brian and he responded back very quickly with great info. Can't wait to buy that turbo from you Brian!!

Thank you guys, I appreciate that!
I'm really just doing my best to see things through. Aaron ordered a muffler from our host and I sent him the wrong installation kit for his application. Simply making that right by sending the correct kit (you should have it Friday).
I plan to be around for the long haul. This business is being built for my retirement and I can think of absolutely nothing better I would like to finish out my working years doing. Playing shuffleboard isn't part of the plan. I just love these cars and helping enthusiasts make them as enjoyable as they can, without breaking the bank.
Unfortunately customer service can only go so far. I've had several serious setbacks with my heat exchangers and I sure appreciate everyone's patience as I redesign them. If they don't thrill me on my car their not gonna be put on yours.

I just installed one of Brian's dual out mufflers on my car. A very nice product!

Yep Brian has answered many of my questions and I intend to have his headers on my next engine build with probably one of his zorks and maybe one of his turbos and and and he is just plain the greatest

Absolutely agree. Its been a while since I have purchased any of his products (zork and one of the first zork style mufflers) but with a rebuild on the near term horizon I'll probably be back for some new headers and such to finish it all off!

Hello Brian, Any updates on the heat exchangers? I have a 1980 SC Non Vario 3.6 conversion with SSIs. Looking forward to the day I can free up the 3.6 with your 1.625" headers with heat. Bob Wood

customer service

Brian has always answered all my questions and posts I intend to purchase a twin turbo setup from him when the market allows. He is an asset to this forum and to the Porsche industry.

Thanks Sam, the forums have changed the world when it comes to dialog with others that have been there done that. I've leaned a tremendous amount from all who contribute. The market isn't allowing much but life goes on and we do what we can to enjoy our hobby.

Some progress on the exchangers. The revised patterns have been released back to me and I hope to have them this week. Then off to the machine shop to cut out a set to test.
