His facebook has some recent posts by him, he is hard to get a hold of. I had a similar issue. But he is not a crook.
Website down for maintenance, the back pages are still up.

I sent him a message on fb with this thread in the link.

It's very unusual, Dan doesn't respond. He is really a good guy.

I found his card. the number on the card: 734.634.7923
I plan to see him on the 21st - he has an annual Porsche event. I hope he contacts you before the 21st.

Hi

I was refunded previous week end
so from a money point of view it s ok

but it seems he closed the shop


I have a huge issue with the conrod

I cannot get new bolt/nut set from porsche (not available)
and ARP do not offer a kit

how do yo manage when you rebuild the engine ?

I will get arround 250 HP so I want new parts especially for the conrod

IMO just use new factory nuts and leave the stock bolts pressed into the rods as long as they do not over-stretch when torqued back up. You'll feel it if they do.

Power doesn't stress con-rod bolts. It's weight of piston, rods and RPMs that stretches rod-bolts.

I agree it's more rpm rather than power witch stress the conrod bolts but it's important to put a new set when you remove them

unfortunately, porsche do not sell them

I will do a mix with "china forged conrods" plus real ARP conrod bolts and new copper ring for the head

I trust for the forged part itself but manage both end with real high quality products

I will tell you
