I will be in my AC enjoying myself

Hi Amtrak!

2.8 0-60 on all seasons.. i mean i think the c8 is gonna be nutsss

And surprisingly my girlfriend never complained on the entire drive

305 all season

The GT500 is out big competition too

Eh I drove cross country in my bugeye with no AC or radio at the end of July. Went to Colorado and then Texas

Their all seasons are probably Michelin summers. Haha since you dont drive a vette in the snow apperently

I need one of those hats

Better now

a 285 re71r might be close

Thoughts on the IAG oil pan baffle? Think it’ll work as well as it should?

Liked and shared! Six Star Shenanigans is what I live for!

Marvin is gonna get so many weird looks sunday

How insane would a SM vette be at GL

Amtrak better have brought me one

Interior is shiiiiit

I like the steering square /s

Just wait for all the transmission problems

That was their quickest rendition of lighting up Pledge on fire I think....

What about visits?

Did Mark Sadowski approve that photo of him to be posted?

WTF WED! Maintenance before Modification Edition!

Look man, I get it. You see Dewey online raving about a sexy new set of Fortune Auto 500’s for your ride. You love the idea of great ride quality, great performance, a sexy lower stance, custom built for your application, and all at a reasonable price. You want some of that action ASAP!

Before you do that though, take a step back. What maintenance does your car need BEFORE you mod it? This poor individual unfortunately took the wrong approach and now is paying the price for that decision. This sucks too because he’s a great guy but things didn’t pan out.

I’ve said it before in THIS VERY SEGMENT more than once. DO YOUR TIMING BELT AT 90k OR ELSE! Yeah, it’s not going to get you scene points at the next car meet. It’s not going to knock seconds off your time at the track. It’s not even going to help you gap that mustang at a street light but NONE of this stuff can happen if your timing belt snaps and you are left with bent valves in your motor. A FULL 90k service costs a bit less than a set of Fortune Autos but is a HELL of a lot cheaper than tearing your motor down to fix bent valves.

So the moral of the story is this: MAINTENANCE ALWAYS COMES BEFORE MODS!! Also coilovers DO NOT cause timing belt failures, not replacing your timing belt at 90k miles or using low quality parts causes timing belt failures.

See you next week 😊

This happens SO much for us too. Like seriously, gets a new part and becomes a 'ever since I/you' if anything happens.

"Ever since you" is one of our favorite lines at the dealership. I walked in after having head gaskets and a tbelt done on the legacy and told the service manager: "hey bud, ever since you replaced my head gaskets my car isn't overheating." His eyes got huge until the second half of the sentence 😂

I got lucky with my belt. Bought a new one just because and the old one probably didnt have much life left. Would be blown by now for sure.

I see we have another card carrying member of the “ever since club.” How wonderful!

Actually, maintenance is going to knock all the seconds off the time at the track. Even a slow lap beats no lap.

"Dear Kohl's, I haven't been brushing my teeth for 4 years. Ever since you sold me that new pair of pants, my tooth has been hurting and I have a cavity. The only thing I have changed recently is that pair of pants. Any idea why it happened?"

I feel for this dude..i too once bought fortune5s for my old car. Got them all installed and dialed in. Then it happened.....It was the eve of a racing day and I had to get my entry fee. As I'm pulling up to the ATM I pop it out of gear, that's when I heard it. She played the world's most expensive knock knock joke on me.

Bro, i put coilovers on and the next day rod started knocking at my door.

Hold on, a 90K service costs just a bit less than a set of coilovers? Either they're overcharging for simple service or those coilovers are junk.

Man I thought I’d seen it all...... back when i did stereo installs we got tons of these types of people but this is a whole new level

I went to Walmart once and it rained.

Also, don't wait too many years if your mileage isn't up there. There's a time limit to it as well.

I though about setting my car on fire after installing fa500s. Close enough

I agree with this 100%

Definitely the definition of WTF Wednesdays. Lol

That's pretty early for the belt to actually snap. There's a healthy safety margin built into the maintenance schedule. Doesn't change the joke though 😂

It had 110k miles. Just point them at the service manual.

In sorry to laugh, but this is laughable. It still sucks for the owner, but I dont follow the logic on why hes confused his timing belt snapped at 110k miles.

That's a customer to cut off. Not all money is good money.

Coilovers connect to the hub, hub has the axle in it, axle connects to the trans, trans connects to the engine. Pay up

People seriously can't be this dense can they?? This boggles my mind that's somebody somehow would try and tie a coilover install too a timing belt snapping. Honestly, as a person if you are this stupid you shouldn't be modifying cars at all!

Please help that guy😂😂😂

gotta make sure those spring rates are compatible with the timing belt

Bro I'm still waiting on my fortune auto coilovers, hahaha. Like really, lol


Marvin and the team were extremely helpful not just taking care of my 2002 WRX but now my 2004 WRX. From having my transmission swapped in a timely manner to managing my tuning needs for my built 2004 WRX. I can always expect timely service and genuine customer service from this shop. 5/5 A+ !!

Six Star is the only place I trust to keep my 13+ year old stock WRX on the road. Everyone in the shop is encyclopedic about Subarus and it's clear the mechanics put a lot of care into their work. Mark and his team are always thorough in their diagnosis, explain all the work up front (with photos), and provide fair, fully itemized estimates before getting started. After a number of disappointing experiences with dealers and other Subaru shops in the area over the years, I'll continue to make the trip to Six Star as long as I own a Subaru. Highly recommended!

These guys are the best! My first interaction with this shop was when I was calling shops around the Chicago area trying to figure out who could do a stage 2 setup on my 05FXT. I was immediately drawn to them due to their super friendly nature and their expansive knowledge, not to mention their reviews. I scheduled a time with them to run some tests on my engine to see if it was fit for a stage 2 set up, since it did have about 138000 miles on it. Unfortunately they discovered a head gasket leak/failure which is not super uncommon for these cars at this age. But I was looking on the bright side because several other shops were prepared to just slap stage 2 bits on my car with no prior inspections and I wouldn’t have known any better, and then I would have encountered much bigger problems down the road. So to fix the issue of the leaky head gasket I declided to have them rebuild my engine, as opposed to just a head gasket replacement or buying a whole different car. I went with this because they have a rebuild option that isn’t focused on power, but reliability. That was very appealing to me since I wanted to be reassured that I’d have no more problems with my engine and I also wasn’t looking for crazy power numbers. Plus, at least from what I could find, six star is the only shop in the area to offer a rebuild package like that. After having the car back for a mont after the build, the engine runs buttery smooth and absolutely no problems. Plus they threw in some extra torques when they tuned it because they knew I’d like to have a little fun 😇. Couldn’t have left my car with a better bunch of guys, I highly recommend this shop!

Very professional people! Dewey is the man when it comes to ordering parts! They’re always responsive when you have any questions. Very competitive prices and fast shipping. They got my Subaru’s ecu swapped in a day! I highly recommend this shop for anything Subaru.

From the very beginning till the end was nothing but professionalism and respect for these guys. After having a rough experience from a dealership I wish I would have came here first. Definitely recommend Six Star for everything between routine maintenance to performance upgrades. They know what they are doing. Thank you!

These guys are awesome! Recently had a motor built by them for my 2018 STI. This is my first Subaru and also first turbo car so these guys took the time to really explain the process and made sure everything was getting done correctly. The guys here don’t treat you as a work order either, they will get to know you by name. Im very satisfied with my car and even more with the knowledge I’ve gained from Marvin, Mark and Dewey. This will be the only shop I take my car to.

Really awesome and laid back people. Very knowledgeable with Subaru’s. They also have a awesome on hand stock of modifications like turbochargers, turbo inlet hoses, exhaust, etc. Plus it looks like they had some dealership parts on hand too!

Do yourself and your Subaru a favor and go see these guys, they're simply the best. I couldn't be more happy with the results and the entire experience I had.

Fair pricing, expert mechanics, great customer service. Downside is that they are always booked; shows how good they are. Even if you aren't a customer, they will steer you in the right direction for parts or advice. if you care about your Subaru/ turbo-awd car, this place is for you.

I can't say enough good things about this shop. I've been working with them for years and they have always helped me out in times of need. Even if it was a simple oil change on my Crosstrek or a full engine build it's always a pleasure working with these guys. They will always be my go to shop!

Needed to fix an annoying leak that no one could source and fix but, Mark and the crew took great care of me, they found it and took care of it. Pointed out what needed to be do done and what as looking good. Huge thanks to Six Star Motorsports will definitely go back if I ever need work and would recommend you give them a call!

The team at Six Star is wonderful! They took amazing care of my Forester during its 60K/brake service, and the car feels great. Even took time to schedule a secondary inspection to diagnose a potential clutch issue. They are knowledgable, happy to answer questions, and make you feel very welcome. No doubt they are the best around, and only want the best for you and your vehicle.

Love this place! Always a friendly person there that's willing to help listen and teach. Great selection on items. If you want it and do not see it dont be hesitant to ask I'm sure they can get it for you and more than likely at a lower price as well. This place would be my first selection on localized performance knowledge based people. Highly recommended!
