Was told the price for the alternator was $600+. When I questioned John the mechanic about the price and told him a new one on Atlantic British was $290, he told me their shop won't compete with on-line discount part supplier. On top of that, 5 hours for labor at $500. If anyone knows Disco's, replacing the alternator is the most accessible part on the engine. So disappointed in the quote, I paid $125 for the diagnosis and towed my car to another mechanic. These guys are despicable. Avoid at all cost.

I bought the 496 stroked anyway and I'm very happy. the way i see it is Allan is honest and fair. when something goes wrong it is always the builder not the person that waits 2 to 4 yrs later to complain after he messes something up i got 1 yr warranty ,warranty papers that tells you what you have to do just follow the directions that you did NOT read then you would not have these problems.by the way Allan builds over 100 engines a year every one knows he backs up his work so please before you tare some one down know who he is remember he builds engines you don't that's why you bought engine from him .by the way Allan does not work on cars as work advisor says he just build engines /get the facts right
