Kidding. Worked on another car with him and he was very helpful and welcome extra pair of hands. I'd definitely trust this guy with my own car and I'm pretty specific about who is allowed to come near my car.

How are you guys turning the engine over? By the fan nut? If so, are you going cw or ccw?

This is good to read, as I think I need to do a valve job soon.

Thanks Roland, Bobby's rebuild was a good one!

Hey Rafael, I did end up installing them with a friend, and I never want to have to do it again

Bump for Dan. He took care of my valve adjustment this morning and the car sounds great. I haven't had a chance to drive it yet but if anything breaks tomorrow I'll come back on here and slam you lol. Only real let down of the day was him not bringing his LSB for me to check out. His girl's got a sweet 135i though Now that you've got my money sign up for the track day so we can see which color is teh faster

Dan did a valve adjustment on my car earlier today. Really nice guy, and you can tell he definitely knows what he's doing. Pricing is very fair, and it's a lot more convenient too since he comes to your place. Definitely would recommend him to anyone who needs a valve adjustment.

In my car's case only 2 valves were out of spec, but even those two seemed to have made a difference. I used to have a rattle at 2500rpm, and now that's gone.... I was blaming it on my header install, but I guess it was the valves this whole time.

this morning dan came down and drove a few hours to the jersey shore to my house and did a top notch job on my valve adjustment... i really dont let anyone work on my car but dan is definitely one of the few that i would continually let do my valve adjustments... i cant say enough about his work... he finished in about 3 hours and it came out perfect. i definitely reccomend dan to anyone who needs a valve adjustment in the tri-state... u can really tell he knows exactly what hes doing. and best of all of course his prices are really really fair and unbeatable.
