I just received my stuff from Jess today and is exactly as promised. The turbo is mint, and the stainless flanges he cut me are the best I've ever seen for the price(cheeper than most steel ones I've found). I especially owe him since my credit card was going through the confirmation stage through paypal as I had just switched carriers and had not intended to buy right then and there. He waited very patiently for the payment which took almost a week and a half to organize. He sent the parts out that day and they got here within 3 from the other side of canada. Very pleased. Will be buying all my turbo stuff through him. Thanks again Jess.

Cheers,
Rick

i just wanted to tell you guys that i met jardamuth online by buying a nice T3 head and intake set on ebay. not only was i pleasantly surprised by having purchased a sweet item, he also gave me great advice and steered me to this forum.

we still share thoughts via email. he's a great guy. he has generously offered me his custom work and i know that i'll eventually buy a custom manifold and larger turbo from him.

he's a rare individual who can turn your dreams into reality :D

best regards, richard

I received my turbo kit from Jardamuth just before Christmas. I had it sent to my parents house, and they had it sitting under the christmas tree when I got there. I must say that he does some fantastic work. Knowing that I am not terribly experienced with this kind of thing, he made sure to include everything necessary to just plug and play as well as sending detailed instructions on what works best and what not to do. Included are a
-Garrett T25 turbo "rebuilt with new seals, bearings, and balanced impeller",
-equal length manifold w/downpipe,
-remote oil filter kit,
-oil and water lines and fittings
-used volvo oil cooler (in amazing shape, I might add)
-and he also gave me a great deal on one of his under body braces.

Not only did Jess go that extra mile to make sure the whole thing was perfect, but if it wasn't, then he let me know, and gave me a discount. For example, he informed me that the bars on the under body brace were slightly misaligned, and gave me a massive discount, and when it arrived, I couldn't see anything wrong with it.

His service was very prompt, and I didn't have to wait long for the product, and one of the best parts about dealing with Jess is that he is quick to return e-mails (usually same or next day) and always willing to answer my stupid questions. I definitely recommend dealing with him even if he doesn't live anywhere near you. (I live halfway across the country from him.)

Yeah, it does seem pretty extreme I guess, but I kind of have to compare it to my roommates situation. He ordered a turbo kit for his 240sx, and after almost 4 months of continually having to call the guy and hound him, he decided to phone and ask for his money back. To his horror, the guys phone has been disconnected and even the company that is building the kit can't seem to get a hold of him.

I'm just really impressed by the community surrounding the swift. Everyone I've talked to has been really helpful, and I'm just glad I wasn't ripped off. :D

Jess had a custom 304 stainless header flange laser cut for me. It is very professional, was made quickly, shipped quickly (?) by Canadian snail mail!
I would buy from him again!

I just received my turbo kit from Jardamuth :D . Looks great, turbo manifold is heavily constructed, welding is primo. I also bought the under-car brace from him, this is also of high quality. Turbo he included is in excellent condition, just the right size for my Swift.

He delivered as promised. :thumbsup:

Can't wait to throw it on my Swift and show the local "ricers" who the real king is!!!

Jess is great to deal with. Although our transaction spread out over quite a while I never got the impression it was a problem. The guy really knows what he's doing and the quality of his products is very impressive.
I would definitely recommend him to anyone and look forward to do more business with him in the future.


Another happy customer,
Lawrence

thanks jess.

My experience with jess, was really too much... I mean it's like he's on call all the time! How am i supposed to learn anything myself?!
It's like, i run into a problem and he's there to help me fix it! I don't have to think at all! I learn absolutely nothing on my own... all the instuction is right there in front of me. Coupled with the fact that his stuff is so easy to install in the first place, it's just despicable really.
In the past, bussiness' didn't have to be open on Sunday, but go figure, Jess woudl break that rule too!

And tell me... How is the market supposed to be competitive when Jess makes all the best stuff? Other people are despretly trying to make new better manifolds, stronger suspension upgrades, and better turbo kits, but they all fail. Why? because super-jess here has to build the best looking custom stuff you've ever seen, AND it worx a hundred times better then stuff twice the price. You can't NOT buy his stuff, it's like monopoly!

OH! and you can't be mad at him either, cause he's one of the nicest guy's you've ever talked to... makes me absolutely SICK how nice he is, even to the dumbest of customers.

Thanx a bunch jess! thanx for creating a market for Swift stuff that no-one can possible compete in and being on call 24/7 to make sure we all stay dumb... i'm on to your plans :evil: .... crazy quebecor?... i'll say!

:razz:

I bought a whole lot of stuff off Jess and Kyle for my turbo project and the quality of the stuff is amazing, it was like christmas when it arrived. Really, really happy with the service I was given, the time it took to fabricate the stuff was again amazing and he was 100% trustworthy and honest.

Thanks again Jess!!! a pleasure doing business with you and Kyle.
I bow down to you both.

:D :D :D :D

i received the aluminum lower tie bar to complete my "mad quebecer" suspension mods.

just like everything i've gotten from jess, the materials and workmanship was top notch. the fit was perfect, no drilling involved, only a small tug to start one of the bolts (he cuts the mount so as to wedge into a bushing bracket as the bolt is tightened - an engineering feature demonstrative of the amount of thought in his designs.)

anyway, jardamuth gets another big thumbs up from me. :D

jardamuth made a generous donation to the t3 vert project of a turbo outlet adapter for the rhb32. is this guy a prince or what?

curled up inside the pipe were a couple of turbine tech decals that i'll be proud to display on my car.

thanks jess! :D

Ordered the aluminum underbody brace from him. It arrived a few days later. The workmanship was great and it fit perfectly.

He's honest and easy to deal with and he makes good quality stuff. What more can I say? :D

Jess does great quality work. A friend of mine got a manifold and it was a work of art.

I got a 1.6 block and it was everything he said it would be. and VERY FAST shipping...

I have been very remiss in not postig here.

Jess put together a partial kit for me for a mk1. Building from photographs and rulers.....

I am absolutely impressed with both the quality and the service.
Jess follows up and provides awesome value in advice, answering questions both technical and stupid.

I would not hesitate in sharing my experience with anyone who wants to buy off Turbintech
