    i fking hate bagging other businesses out but we have had enough
    of castle auto electrics
    they sold an ls2 wiring kit to someone and it doesnt work right
    so they rang castle autos and they had no fking idea on how to fix it

    thats 10 to 15 fukups from them where customer has come to us for correct fix

    so beware anyone out there

    we r charging guy 200 bucks for our info and if that doesnt work he will need to send
    loom to us which is a pain cause they say they cant remove it easy
    now if anyone things im a prick well thanks to all those other shops and people who
    think we are to expensive well give fking castle auto elects a call and lets see how u go

    ive just started charging 150 bucks an hour for fixing any conversion that was not wired up by us
    so far no complaints
    customer just wants car fixed
    ive also stopped replying to emails
    my new reply is please bring it to us
    thats how im going to work from now on

    Hello Jim - I know how you feel. I spent my day sorting a auto sparkies job. They tried to wire a link into a V3 impreza and failed and then failed to make it run correctly back on the stock ECU. Faults everywhere. I have it running on the link now , have found the missing earths to the ECU , got the TPS and ECT to work due wiring being in the wrong places. Now have the indicators and ABS brakes to sort. It was a mess. Any chance you coming over to NZ in the next month. I have a wiring on a conversion which you have a bit more experence on than me. You can expect a phone call.

    I have dealt with these muppet's before, there must be something in the water down there, they are just down the road from CRS, and the quality of work is about the same.

    X2 and I'm not even at the level where you are yet but seem to be catching up. Remember what I said on another thread last week. Getting my apprentice upto speed and going and sitting in the engine room of a ship is starting to look real good
