Ken @ Protege Garage Is THE MAN

Sup Guys,

I am here to fill everyone one in on a journey I have been through with My car and how Ken has been a big part of it in Many ways. My Mazdaspeed 3 was fully bolted:

Cobb ap, cpe fmic, cpe cai, pg inlet, a REAL GT3076R with T3 Mani flange + v band downpipe, Custom hand made tube manifold which dropped turbo 3 inches to get a actual str8 flow into turbo no bent tubes here, and a custom 3" catless dp + 38MM Tial Externally dumped, Devils Own (DO5)Nozzle running 70/30 mix, tuned to 11.2-11.4 AFR @ 20PSI

Manifold + dp EWG Fab:

Anyone Notice a VERY important mod missing in my list ?

......Keep thinking.............

????????? Fuel Pump ??????????????

this is the s*** ass journey I have been through, I got my first set of KMD v1 Internals from pg, failed, Ken replaced with Carpe Diem Internals -Failed, sent another pair of carpe Diem -Failed, Send a third set of carpe Diem -Failed(at this point I had in my possesion 2 pair of internals at once without returning the previous, shows some trust from Ken)

At this point I asked Ken for my money Back, He gave me a full refund no questions asked.

I decided to give it one more shot. I reordered and payed for KMD v2 Internals and OMG they were ******* working !!!!!!

about 6-7k Miles Later BOOM.......#3 Rod blew holes in front and rear of Block. After ALL this time and I never suspected internals to be damaged or the cause. When I tore engine down to stock and took internals out of pump they were very SCORED and very well seized almost impossible to move. #5 Internals Failed and a blown engine.

Ken replaced with PTP Internals for me, i think ptp may be charging more then Ken for his internals and Ken did not ask for a difference in price or anything, and despite the heavy heavy losses Ken has taken which includes KMD not paying ken back for the KMD v2 internals he just ate, he went further and just Mailed me a Brand new set of pistons and rods to rebuild my engine with.

In conclusion Despite the shitty experiences I have had in relation with protege Garage, the Customer service and sole Owner has Bent Backwards to make sure his name is in Integrity and we are taken care of. Plain and ******* simple

SPEND YOUR MONEY WITH KEN @ PG

motor build in progress

To add to the awesomeness of Ken and his customer service.....I recently purchased their full FMIC kit, powdercoated black with the PG logo on the top pipe for a fabulous price. Well a mix up occured and I received regular pipes with no logo. After only a couple hours of my e-mail Ken replied and assured me that he would take care of it and would have the correct pipes for me this saturday at the mazda meet at OCC. From now I'll only order parts for my car from Ken @ protegegarage
