Garage in Cambridge, MA area?

Postby AvivB » Fri Feb 20, 2009 8:52 pm

I'm looking for honest and decent garage in Cambridge are for a friend with 6th gen Celica.
He need to replace timing belt and I'm toooooo far away to do it for him...

If someone also know the estimated price for such work it will be great to know...

Thanks.

I think Brian [Gman] had problems with them....

Shoot me a PM with his info, I'm a Master tech in Milford Ma, might be able to work something out.

Yeah, I'm not super pleased with my experience with dentsport either...

We were supposed to have a dyno day there we got there, they said they couldn't do it... even for full price let alone any discount.

lol, yeah.

I got there about an hour late, mostly because that place is a ridiculously hard to find if you don't know where your going.

Maybe this summer...

Nice guy, been a while. ( He is an ex/current? Rally driver, ST165, ST185 owner... )

Dent Sport is Ok.
They are young. I can't complain too much.
If you go there be specific and check their work.
No real options if you want/need a 4wd dyno in the Boston Area.

The 6th gen is nothing Hard. Does it have the stock engine ?
OR a 3sgte swap ? :-)

That is Far !

The part is ~ $30 for the belt. It is the Labor that is going to Kill your friend.
Is $600 too Much, that is about what I paid on my ST185 3SGTE.
+ Water oil pump depending on condition while it is apart....

Thanks a lot...
Information was forwarded to my friend...
And yes, it is all stock 6th gen, no swap and no mods.

Thanks.
