    ANy 3.6 DI owners.....step inside please.

    As many have seen there is a battle with a backyard mechanic that is claiming we dont really exist, the pictures I show are photshopped, and aton of other dispariging posts and we cant get him to go away.

    So, here is the deal. Anyone in FL that wishes to drive over (we are in Palmetto, between Sarasota & Tampa) and verify we are real, see the facility, and the super charged and turbo charged 3.6 builds to verify we are real, we will remove your throttle body and clean and service free ($150 at the dealer). We will also remove the plenim cover on your intake manifold and clean the oil reidue from it and show you your intake valves in real time with a boroscope and how this oil ingestion is resulting in excessive gunk buildup and power & fuel economy loss. First hand in person. We will also show you the 3.6 DI motor dissasembled so you can understand all parts of the engine in your car and how to best care for it.

    You can email me at: RXProducts@aol.com

    The map to the shop is on the website, www.RevXtreme.com

    Anyone that wants to visit and report back here your findings in person, all this service ($300-$500 in value) we will do FREE if you come and take pictures and post back here what you saw and learned.

    I will be making a visit to have my new Magnaflow catback exhaust installed and just to say hi. Have used this shop to have a cam installed in my Corvette in their "old Rev Extreme" location and they did excellent work.

    We tried opening branchs in Ft Myers, FL and Atlanta, GA but could not find techs to keep the quality of work up to our standards so closed them. VERY hard to find good techs.

    I will be in area at least twice this year so maybe I just drop in to say hello

    BTW. When I retire maybe you can give me a job as a "quality technician"

    Seriously though I can understand you issue. We cannot get qualified, with good work ethics employees either....

    And it seems to be getting worse......most all techs now days are taught to read a diagnostic unit and swap parts....not be able to understand all the inner workings and the reat difficult trouble shooting, and someone capable of building a motor correctly? Very few.

    I may be over in a couple of weeks. Unless I am with my 91 year old dad I will definitely swing by. There used to be a decent chinese restaurant there, but it has been a few years ...

    Re: ANy 3.6 DI owners.....step inside please.

    Just out of couriosity, are you doing anything with the 3.0 liter engines. BTW, I am coming out of a 3.6 G8, there are a lot of V6 G8 owners looking for a supercharger or turbo kit. The difference I guess is that the Caddy has the DI 3.6 versus the SFI in the G8. But back to your original post, is the oil consumption issue limited to the 3.6 or does the 3.0 have a similar problem? Thanks.

    3.0 has the same issue and we are developing the same product line for the 3.0.

    I need to go on the G8 site more often.

    The sedan took a bit more engineering than the coupe, but a nice clean install and its going to be a fun ride home.
