Hello! Please advise if any of you have taken your cars to be modified at Tasca, and what have you had done to your cars.

 

Please also let me know what you recommend based on your experiences, good and bad.

Tasca Ford upgraded my 2007 Shelby GT to a Shelby GT/SC 550hp back in march of this year. I was there for three days in and out of the shop, (more in the shop than out). I'm a mechanic by trade and I can tell you that Dennis and his crew at Tasca Ford can't be beat. I to highly recommend Tasca Ford.

Thanks guys for your input.

 

Can you detail some of the mods you had done, and please recommend what I should do first or even areas I may not want to consider?

 

Thanks again!

 

it would be easier for you to call Dennis and ask him about the SCJ they built with my GT500 and the ugly orange SGT/Stroker he just finished :hysterical:

I would recommend Dennis at Tasca in a heart beat .. They are Great !!! Stands behind all of his work 100%. In the past 9 months I had 3 2008 Super Snakes and A 2008 GT500KR done by them. :happy feet: :happy feet:

"I personally know 2 people that have had nothing but problems having their Shelby worked on there. One is a poster on here. His car has been back 4 times in a row for the same problem, all within a month"

 

:o

 

Do you mind me asking what they had for problems? Just would like to know because we do back our work 100%!

 

Regards,

Dennis

I have been trying since July to get my SGT upgraded to a GT/SC, seems like one excuse after another. Evidentially they don't need work. :shrug:

I take that back!!! I got the call today, Billy got the brakes in and my car goes in on the 26th of this month for the GT/SC conversion. :happy feet: :happy feet:

Dennis is handling the race shop now, I think, Billy Sgambato is the contact man now.

I had my SS conversion and some additional work done there over the winter and spring of this year. I have had a few minor issues but Dennis and his guys have handled it well and while they may take some time to get back to you, they take pride in what they do and it has been my experience that Dennis will not sell ANYTHING unless he personally feels it is a solid quality product that won't cause you or him problems down the road.

 

I would definitely not have had my SS conversion done if I had not met Dennis and he had taken the time to talk through my goals for the car and discussed how to make sure I ended up with what I wanted. In my experience he is very honest and will tell you what he thinks of mods and how different mods interact without regard to squeezing you for a couple extra bucks for something you don't really need.

 

My suggestion is to talk to Dennis or even better go see him and talk through what your looking to do and go from there. I think after meeting him you will feel more comfortable with sending your pride and joy to Tasca.

 

By the way he may look like he is 12; but the guy knows his stuff!

 

...couldn't resist Dennis :hysterical:

Dennis is this quote correct? I don't want to spread untrue rumors. I know Billy is the guy to contact for the conversions, but I'm unsure of your exact status.

 

Well when we first started the Mod Shop I was all hands on from Oil Changes to engine builds and Tuning then as the company started to grow we hired 3 certified Ford Tech's to pick up the hands on work while I did all the tuning and customer service work.. At that time Billy was given to us full time from our Ford Parts Department to handle Performance Parts only. As business started to pick up even more and I started to spend more and more time on the dyno and race track the phone calls and emails started backing up big time and that is when Billy came in to save my neck and answer the phones calls, emails and set up appointments.

 

Sorry for the long story, to shorten that up.. Yes call Billy with questions or to setup an appointment.. He is nicer than me anyways..

 

Thanks,

Dennis

I had my Super Snake done at Tasca a year ago and had the rear brakes and single piece drive shaft done this past Oct, Their work is carefully and professionally done and their customer service is second to none.I have found Dennis and Billy to be both knowledgeable the cars and patient with my questions. Believe me there's a reason I drive to Tasca from NY for all my work. Dennis knows more about these cars than anyone I've met

Guys, If you are thinking about where to take your car for conversions, upgrades, tunes or anything involving your Mustang, there really isn't any other choice but Tasca. Their motto "You Will Be Satisfied" are not just words. I drive 350 miles roundtrip for even minor work but it is worth the trip. They just know the cars, know what works and what doesn't so you don't waste time experimenting. Dennis knows these cars better than anyone I've met and I'm a 35 year Mustang owner and tinkerer. Eric's customer service is second to none and their mechanics know these cars like they were from the Ford Assembly Line............Don't Think Go To Tasca. Thanks Guys for all the Mods and Maintenace work. The car runs great.

Wow I am not sure how I missed this post, Tasca is fantastic :happy feet: :happy feet: :happy feet:

 

I have nothing but great things to say about Dennis and his Team. I will be going back for any future mods to my car. Always honest, does not tell you want to hear or BS you just to sell more product.
