Default Straub Technologies

Spend your money on parts elsewhere so you actually know what your getting instead of nameless parts placed freely in a card board box with no specs of how they need to be installed and stock crap gasket sets that aren't worthy of being used in a high performance engine build or pistons that don't work without being flycut reguardless of the fact you gave him all the specs needed to send you the right parts. Plus you might not have to wait 6 weeks for things to show up and do your own detective work on where they are. If you do decide to order from him get all info you need for the whole build upfront cause he will ignore your Emails and PMs after an order (when he previously would respond within hours) if you even dare to ask him where your parts are after 6 weeks and you will be on your own to figure it out from there. You can atleast expect 1 last snippy reply from him reguardless of the fact you were nothing but polite and professional the whole time before he decides to never answer questions pertaining to the parts he sold you that are important to completing the remainder of your build, again, leaving it up to you to figure it out. Thanks for making this engine build harder than it needed to be Chris. You will never see a penny from me again.

I have not heard from you BurnOut. No phone call nor email. I do want to address at no time will I ever say that you won't have to flycut pistons. I always tell my customers you need to check P to V. This is part of engine building. "Bolt on and go" does not exist in high performance engine building. If the fly cutting of the piston has upset you I understand, but it is part of engine building. My phone is on and I am in the office today if you want to call.

Bought a crank from him. Showed up 4 days later. He has given me all the help I need for my build, and I will be buying a cam, lifters, and springs from him when the time comes. He's gone further than he needed to helping me out, and giving me advice on my setup. No complaints here.

One thing we pride ourselves in here at Straub Tech is our tech support. I spend a good deal of time on the phone every day helping people with tech questions that have never spent a dime with us, and that's fine. It's part of why we're here doing what we do.
If there is ever any doubt or any question, no matter how trivial you may think it is, please don't hesitate to call us. 999 out of 1000 times there's a simple explanation and even if there isn't, we'll help you get to the bottom of the problem whether you're a customer or not.
Have a great day gentlemen.

Chris is a 100% stand up guy and straight shooter. We have bought numerous parts, custom cams, lifters etc from him and have not had a problem. I dont think I have ever seen a negative review about him on any forum and he contributes ALOT of info/tech advice on these forums.

P.S, any builder/parts supplier knows that in the Performance world, nothing is a sure thing and parts need to be modified to fit even on the simplest upgrades.
