    In a way, I wish I was the guy who got to start this thread, yet I am glad I did not have to. I have to give Jose a huge thumbs up. He really came through for me on my bottom end. Not only did he go above and beyond the call of duty when building it, he also was there to support me during the build and installation. And the support was not even always motor related!

    I urge anyone who is looking for a motor to get a hold of Jose and see what he can do for you. You will not be disappointed!
    I would submit, Your Honor, that if someone is doing something demonstrably asinine, and I ask them to stop it, please, and they say, "Make us," they've entered a binding oral contract whereby I am permitted, even obligated, to try to make them.

    Jose C has done it once again! The guy is a genius and a true friend!

    I took my car to him once again almost a year later for some more parts I needed installed on my car, and once again, I'm not disappointed! I have a cheesy smile everytime I get in my car cause it's running great and very strong!

    Quality of work was awesome, and price is always great for it! Just wanted send a public THANKS to Jose cause he really deserves it for knowing his ssshtuff!

    Jose has definitely helped me out a few times. I'd recommend him as a good mechanic and a great guy in the Orlando area.
    I used to be kind of a big deal on the internet.

    jose was very helpful and has lots of knowledge. I had a hard time finding an awd 2g tranny and he located one in a few days shipped it to his house and freshened it up for me. Jose is a great mechanic but more importantly a great person.

    Thumbs up Red97Talon *Jose* Not Good!

    GREAT!

    Jose is a great guy. Went to his house last night to deliver the GT4067RLS and we just got into conversation. He is more knowledgable then I ever thought. I knew he knew what he was doing, but I didnt know he was a great guy either. Very people oriented and a very friendly guy. I hope to be doing more business with him in the future. I would recommend Jose to anyone that I come in contact with about a DSM. Thanks again Jose!

    Jose is a one stop shop convenience store of knowledge. You can't leave his house without a lengthy conversation about something interesting unless his baby is sleeping LOL. He has helped me out many a time.

    For sure! He's done great things for me before, and as a matter of fact, he's doing great things now to my ride.

    Very good guy and yes, very knowledgable.

    Jose C and Mazda Mike are very good, very trustworthy people!

    Ok, first of all I have needed to post this for a while...
    I had my 7 bolt die on me right after I got my 2G.
    I took it to Jose C. to get a 6 Bolt swap done and all I can say is he is the man. He had a whole lot of parts that he sold me for great prices IMO and everyone of them was in great shape as described. He is really just a very trustworthy person. He built my short block and did a great job. Jose dosent cut any corners, he does stuff right.
    Mazda Mike also played a role in the swap and the same high props go to him. Mike is a awesome Mechanic and a stand up guy. He called me a few days after I got the car back just to see how it was running. I dont know if Mike is a member to this board.
    In the beginning I felt as if I rolled the dice on this Jose guy because I did not know him, in the end I won twice. I got great work done on the car at a better price and a new friend.
    Anyone needing anything DSM, this guy will not steer you wrong, 100% trust!

    Thumbs up Jose Clavijo

    Simply put one of the top/best dsm guys Ive ever met in my life. Drove the car over to him today to fix all its bugs....He custom fabb'ed up a dumppipe for the external gate, put a new timing belt with all parts plus a whole lot more, cant ask for anything more. The car is pulling like it never did before. The 225/50 brand new tires dont stand a chance against this E316g. The tial 38mm is working great holding boost nomore creep or spike. On sunday il be running more boost on 110, to see what she does. Jose I cant thank you enough man thanx for everything. Im really happy with the performance of the car.

    Jose has helped me loads with my car and continues to help me through problems I am having with the car . For the orlando area it really doesnt get any better than him as long as you dont mind the drive and dont mind not going to an actual "garage" if you can even call the places around here that.

    From what I heard, Jose helped get an oldtime DSMer (Raim) running well in his recenlty adquired 1g awd. I believe Raim said he ran mid 11s@126. Good job Jose. You da' man.

    What the hell does this guy not do? Lets see, He does installs, builds motors, builds trannys and I guess he is a fabricator... Thanks for the awesome fab job on my 3" downpipe to my new T3 hotside. WG recirculated. Everything looks awesome! Another top notch Job done by Red97Talon.

    BTW^^^ I am loving Raim's old turbo...

    I don't think there is anything else I can say about Jose that hasn't been said. Awesome guy! He even came out to me when I was stranded on 417 when my tire blew on the way to his house. I am sporting his old Laser rim for the next day or so until I get a new tire LOL! The 16g is kicking and he got all my quirks figured out in no time. I can't wait to go back and get my AFC installed/tuned!!!

    I would have to agree with everybody else Jose is a miracle maker. He changed my head gasket and installed my new bc 280's. The car is running strong with no issues and the temp stay well below the 200f. Thanks man!!!!
    Just got to go back for a quick tune.

    I'm making this thread a sticky for an all-around good guy with a lot of knowledge about all cars.

    Also, as an update, in addition to mechanic and fabrication work, Jose is also a DSMLink Dealer and does manual transmission/gearbox rebuilds. I've added a link to his profile in the first post of the thread for his contact info.
    I used to be kind of a big deal on the internet.

    POST NUMBER 2 Joses the shit when it comes to dsm's. Hes did so much to the car already, it wouldnt be what it is today without his work, im sure I speak for about 5 other people off the top of my head I can think of at this moment. He can do anything from custom making 02 housings to head gasket jobs to timing belt repair in no time. Hes the go to guy when it comes to dsm work.

    Yes sir... I wont go anywhere else... If it is something I cant do, Jose can. Jose is a one stop shop. Cage, Tranny, built motor, maintenance, theory, parts selection whatever. If it is DSM, Jose knows it.
    Oh yha, and TOP NOTCH service and honesty to go with all that. Now we just need him to open a shop!

    Jose lives in a cave, its a wonderous cave with everything needed to fix DSMs, also the only way to reach him is to use a signal in the sky >_>

    Jose helped me out with a transmission before I left for pennsylvania, really cool guy +1

    Yes, he is the best person to work on your car.

    Yes, he is impossible to get a hold of at times.

    Both of these are confirmed lol. He will come around. You did the best thing by posting here. PM, message, post.....wait.

    I bid you good-day.

    Jose C. is awesome.

    I just got my Eclipse back last night. After about 1 week at Jose's, the car is running better than ever. This is my first dsm car. I bought my eclipse about 1 month ago and have been waiting for Jose to do all the regular maintenance and some tunnig. He is very affordable and goes above and beyond to make sure your car will be running to perfection. Not only that, but he will be a great source of knowledge and advise. I myself have learned a lot from him. I highly recommend Jose to anyone looking for help with a dsm car.

    Thanks Jose !!!!!

    Thumbs up Red97talon

    Most of us already know...but I still wanted to write this for any guest to look thru our forum and for all the new folks on the club. Thanks to Red97Talon, I was back up and running in short amount of time. Even when he had to completely rebuild my transsmission. He wont beat around the bush when talking about your issue and so far his knowledge is outstanding and can put it into plain english for those of us who need it. Also his prices are great and worth every dollar. I WOULD recommend anyone to talk to him for any DSM or non-DSM issue.

    Red97Talon: I can't say it enough......Thanks for everything!!!!

    Jose helped me get the Galant switched over to E85 and its running better than it ever has. He helped me optimize the cars current configuration by recommending I go back to the stock cams, and it really paid off. He is doing some fine tuning this weekend, but it is already 10x stronger and is still on the same boost and conservative timing. Patience is key, but good things are worth waiting for. He will not steer you in a bad direction.


    Thanks for everything Jose.

    Send him a pm on here first. If that doesn't work I'll give you his paypal address, that might get his attention haha.
    Bombing for peace is like fucking for virginity.

    PM me for all your DSM part needs.
