G & C WARNING

Postby vw virus on Thu Nov 13, 2008 3:36 pm

ATTENTION!!! ATTENTION!!! ATTENTION!!!

Do not, I repeat , DO NOT go to Goch & Cooper in Brackenfell for any cam work!!!!

They messed up my set of Estas billets so badly that when it went to Riaan at Master Cams to be reprofiled, he laughed his @SS off. Each lobe had a different lift height! My cams were a source of comedy for the guys at Master Cams. They called them "comedy cams".

Don't say I didn't warn you....

Thanks bra i just called he sed he cant reprofile the cam to 292 but can make it a 298 and it will cost me R1500 just to cut it that sounds heavy bra as i paid R1200 for the billet at masterparts. so i dont think il go that root or is he ripping me of cause as far as i know its normaly R250 to have a cam cut to the profile u want it. or am i incorrect

Yo LuckyLuke...R250 for reprofiling is a tad cheap. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for...or you hope to get what you pay for. I have to admit that R1500 is steep just for reprofiling. I'll chat to Mike and finid out what's involved and if Mike can get me a better price.

I’m very happy with the service and support I got with G&C. I’ve always used G&C to get my cams done, and I’ve never had any problems with them….and I’ve not been paid to said this..hahahah:D

BeeJay, Gawie...it's entirely your call.

I've had shitty service from them. They fcuked up my billets. Maybe you are the lucky ones to experience wonderful service from G&C. At least I didn't have to give anyone a BJ...hehehehehehe
