I found Michael through social media never having had a formal face to face meet and still have not met Mike due to Covid. That said all our dealings have been transparent with full honesty. I recommend Mike as a fair and honest business person without any shadow of doubt; if Mike accepts the project he commits and takes his roll seriously and wholeheartedly.
Mike has been exceptional throughout the process and very patient. I went into this totally green... absolutely no idea. Car was shipped from interstate and returned in better condition with Mike also tweaking other minor adjustments. We started discussing a standard build for a 3.0L but then my O.C.D. and greed took over. Mike’s help and advice all along the way was priceless very resourceful particularly to acquire parts for best value and how to achieve bang for buck - great work Mike.
Mike keeps full record at all critical points and I was able to stay up to date by also following his social media updates and regular email updates. His up to date correspondence was without question excellent with great photo records & explanatory videos. Also owe a special thanks to old mate in the USA, William Knight of Knightrace who also provided valuable advice & support to achieve our goal.
My intention was to build a responsive street car with potential to track but primarily for street fun. The final result is better than expected, a 3.5L with long stroke and excellent torque through the rev range. Great work Mike, bravo, standing ovation, well done, super happy, thanks for your dedication to achieve the brief. I highly recommend Michael D’Silva for personalised and tailored air-cooled engine building without exception. 10 out of 10. Very pleased - Angelo R
