Holleran's Performance rebuilt my Porsche 1982 SC engine in April of 2006 for cost of >$10,000. I received email complaints from neighbors about the loudness of my engine in April of 2007. The engine had blown again. It will cost ~$7500 to fix.

    THIS CUSTOMERS COMPLAINT IS A FRAUDE THE ENGINE DIDN'T BLOW THE CYLINDER HEAD'S LOOSENED UP BECAUSE SHE NEGLECTED TO BRING THIS VEHICLE BACK FOR THE 1000 MILE RESERVICE. TO ANY PORSCHE REPAIR SHOP THIS IS A KNOWN PROCEEDURE TO RESERVICE THE ENGINE, ADJUSTING THE VALVES, CHANGEING THE OIL AND FILTER AND RE TORQUE THE CYLINDER HEADS.
    THE FIRST OIL CHANGE THAT THE B.A.R. COULD PRESENT TO ME FROM HER WAS 9500 MILES AFTER SHE HAD PICKED UP THE CAR. SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE HAD TAKEN THE CAR TO A REPAIR SHOP AND THEY SOLD HER A MUFFLER BUT THAT DID NOT FIX HER PROBLEM. MAYBEE SHE IS TAKING THIS CAR TO THE WRONG PEOPLE. AT WHAT POINT DID SHE STOP DRIVING THE CAR.? NOISE COMPLAINTS IN APRIL OF 2007 ?. BUT THE FIRST CONTACT TO HOLLERAN'S PERFORMANCE WAS AT THE END OF AUGUST OF 2007 . SOMETHING ISN'T WRIGHT. YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT SHE HAD BEEN DRIVING THIS CAR FOR 5 MONTHS OR POSSIBLY LONGER AND DIDN'T HEAR ANY LOUD NOISES COMMING FROM THE ENGINE. SOUNDS LIKE NEDLECT TO ME. BY THE WAY PORSCHE 3.0L ENGINES ARE AIR COOLED AND THIS MAKES PROPPER MAINTENANCE EVEN MORE CRUCIAL. CONTINUING TO RUN THIS ENGINE THROUGH THE HOT CALIFORINA SUMMER MONTHS.
    HOLLERAN'S PERFORMANCE DID OFFER HER TO BRING THE CAR IN FOR WARRANTEE BUT SHE REFUSED. I HAD GIVEN HER A 6 MONTH WARRANTEE ON THE UPPER END REBUILD AND WAS WILLING TO EXTEND MY HAND IF THERE WAS A METERIAL FAILURE , DEFECT OR OTHER CONDITION, THAT MAY HAVE CAUSED HER A PROBLEM. SO WHAT IS THE REASONING BEHIND TAKING THE CAR TO ANOTHER REPAIR SHOP AND THEN TRYING TO HAND ME A BILL FOR HER NEGLECTFULL WAYS. GUESS I'LL NEVER KNOW.
