Intake Valve Cleaning (GTA)

Anyone know a good place that does intake valve cleaning in the Mississauga/GTA area for a good price?

There are always two sides to a story, besides it does not hurt to call him and find out for yourself.

I too would like to hear these
negative things if you don't mind. To put it into perspective, here is a recent experience of mine with Ivo. (keep in mind I have been going to him often and I feel we have established a good business relationship, I'd say almost friendship)

Had my FMIC installed last week. The first of the group of a custom FMIC that had a 10 unit runoff. Picked up the car this past Saturday expecting to go to Cayuga Sunday morning. Car drove strong and well, but was getting a lot of boost leaks for some reasons (randomly); sent him a txt the same night, however no answer. The next morning the FMIC piping somehow slipped off on the chargepipe side to the point where under heavy boost is slipped off and was loose causing boost leaks any time I put the pedal down.

At this point I'm furious because I was suppose to go to Cayuga and I just got the car back. I sent him another txt in the morning meanwhile my brother and I lifted the car, scrummages up whatever tools we had and adjusted the piping and forced it too fit. I wasn't happy to do it this way, but I wasn't going to let it ruin my day and it seemed to hold up. In between this struggle, Ivo apologized for not getting back to me right away (phone died) and immediately made plans to come meet me at my place. Within 20 mins he showed up, had a look and again readjusted everything and was super apologetic because he after all didn't expect this to happen himself. All in all he took his personal time to aid me in my time of crisis, even let me borrow some tools to repair/adjust the piping should it come loose at the track and said come by whenever you can and we'll come up with a permanent fix.

Long story short sometimes shit happens. It's what people do with those experiences that matters. I've made a friend and have a permanent mechanic. Plus 1,000,000 for Ivo.

I can say with all certainty I know very few mechanics who would do anything like this. He took responsibility for what happened, immediately came to aid and maintained our business relationship with what I call, some of the best customer service.

And last but not least, you can't beat his genuine concern & knowledge of our cars, reasonable pricing and customer service. That's that; hands down great guy and great mechanic!

Ivo does the work right infront of you and that's a HUGE HUGE plus in my book.

I hate going anywhere and they take your car around back and you have no idea what's going on and you sit there wondering if everything's being done properly or being done the way you would be doing it yourself.

With Ivo you can just sit around and watch everything happening infront of your face. It shows that he's confident in his work and it makes me feel as if he has nothing to hide.
