Just to give a quick back ground. Ibought my fd almost 4 years ago, 100% stock running great. last year after a very bad chain of events with a mazda dealer. this past springI had to tow my non-running, leaking every thing fd to Banzai Racing (3hr. 45min.). I was told by two fd owners, they were the best around. Chris and Elaine were great to work with and they give great advise. by early summer and few mods I was pulling 338rwhp, but the best part is what happend last week and is why Iam writing this today. two weeks ago i was down for some tunning and i thought the car was running great, better than ever. after tuning chris was not happy about my idle, he made some adjustments and told me to keep an eye on it and to come back asap so he could look in to it a little more. i returnd the next week with spark plug wire Chris suggested by email Ishould up grade, that might fix the idle that I thought was fine. after 20min. of testing he told me he was going to pull and rebuild my engine. I almost s**t myself, I told him he was crazy and to check again. He told me it had to be done and it was all under warranty. I got the car back and it is better than ever. The point to all of this is, after all the problems I had with mazda and all the problems I hear poeple having with other shops even just getting parts. It really nice to know someone still will do the right thing, take pride in their work and be truthful. Chris and Elaine are the best! you couldnt pay me to go any were else.

I would like to thank Chris getting my car straightened out. I had a major boost problem (5 lbs no more or less )and a breaking up problem also. After Buying new couplers and nothing happened. He took apart ever thing to make sure that nothing was wrong. He found the problem which I would have never looked at it. No restrictor in the tube that controls boost. Then my breaking up problem was a crappy chargeing system. Glad he found that because I had already done everything I could think of. Now my car is running in tip top shape.

Well Iíve been finishing up my single turbo install and I probably now have about 4 or so hourís worth of phone time with Chris regarding questions etc about everything and general RX-7 talk. I was having some significant spark issues that decided to show up this winter, which he helped me diagnose and get me the parts I needed to fix the issue (leading coil not putting out any spark as a result of harness connecting to it). Well after getting that sorted out and getting the car to idle somewhat decent I was still getting piss poor vaccum. So it appeared to be a fuel issue now not spark. So frustrated after messing with it for the last two days I decided to call ChrisÖÖ..at 8pm on his cell phone. After playing phone tag as a result of poor reception and telemarketers calling me on the home line at the same time. We got down to doing some trouble shooting and went through everything that could have been the cause over the phone and found a few things I did incorrect with the main culprit involving the map sensor. Based off the numbers my commander was giving me with the car on and off Chris was able to tell me my map sensor was either Fed or its vacuum source was incorrect. It ended up being the vacuum source, and once fixed the car idled like it should.

I just figured it was worth mentioning that although Iím a customer I consider both Chris and Elaine good friends and itís just nice to have that willingness to help available even after being at the shop all day. Its instances like tonight that are why Chris has been working on/building/tuning my car for the past 3 or so years.

Yea I am VERY pleased with their work and customer service so far! they are by far the BEST shop I have ever dealt with.

Ii would also recomend Banzai Racing. you will not find better customer service or nicer people than Chris and Elaine! Chris is VERY helpful in answering any questions that you may have and everyone else Ii have talked to about Banzai has nothing but good to say about them too!

Ok, Igot the car back this morning and i have been driving it ever since. the turbo spools stupid fast, prob as fast as stock twins, and the power feels AMAZING!!! Ihad no idea I would gain that much! Thanks to the Chris Sanders street tune the car runs Flawlessly! It actually runs better and smoother than with the twins, and my gas mileage is suprisingly better than with the twins too while running 850/1600 injectors! I really cant say enough about how pleased I am with the Quality of work performed by Banzai Racing! I would very highly recommend them to anyone!!!

If I were to sum up my experience with you in one word it would be INCREDIBLE!

As you know, I drove from New Mexico, a distance of 1400 miles, based largely on the confidence I gained with Chris after talking with him about the problems I was having with my RX-7. I realized that Chris's knowledge of RX-7s was simply unmatched. After seeing the results of his work, I see that his skill is equally impressive.

I appreciated all of the time Elaine spent with me explaining each step of the process. The photos posted on the web proved that pictures are worth a thousand words.

I especially valued your diligence at keeping costs as low as possible and at the same time maintaining the highest standards of excellence. I would and will recommend your service to anyone.

I am one very happy Banzai Racing customer.

I Just wanted to convey my appreciation for your professionalism and experience. This is the day I thought I would never see.

Needless to say, the drive back to Iowa was exhilarating. The car quit smoking almost immediately and seemed to actually get stronger the further I went. The car has NEVER ran like this.

A pleasant surprise was the 24.3 miles per gallon, that is almost 3mpg better than I've ever achieved.

Chris, you are a master of your craft and Elaine, you were a pleasure to work with. Also, Thank you for the nice clean car to drive home in. Sandy noticed that first.

Thank you again. I am now enjoying this car like I always thought I would.
