    Default Reno, NV Area Mechanics?

    I was thinking about replacing my cam seals, but due to the timing of it being winter and I don't have a warm shop to work in, I was wondering if anyone knows of a reliable Mitsubishi shop/mechanic in Reno/North Lake Tahoe that can take on this mission. I called the dealer and wasn't impressed by the discussion I had with the service tech. Any advice would be appreciated. From the discussion on this forum, it sounds like it is best to have a specialist look at it.

    Take it to the Auto Shop on Cal lane in Sparks. Ask for Clint. He builds quite a few turbo Mitsubishi’s on the side. Paul blanco sucks.

    Charger- thanks for the heads up, called and talked to Clint, seems to have a clue. I called Blanco and didn't like what the service guy was telling me. He was saying I needed to pull the heads and do a valve job to replace the valve stem seals. It sounded like they wanted to make a bit more money.

    No problem. He’s a good guy and has changed out plenty of them. He’s got a fun VR4 build he is in the middle of.
