I reached out to Baldwin Carbs. Long story short I gained 2 tenths just by him working his magic. I run a 7.49 class at Piedmont drag strip, and now the mustang with a 383 small block with a 750 Holley is close to a 7.00 sec car. Need I say more!
Best Carb guy on the East coast, possibly west also just can't speak for it. It is nearly impossible to find guys as knowledge and helpful as William. I have a 1966 Ford Mustang with a 351W in it and was looking to increase performance along with ignition system reliability. William helped me make the best decision for parts and went above and beyond with installation. I would trust him with anything from a $100,000 concours build to a 1000HP drag car. He knows his stuff and is willing to explain anything you want to understand.
I am a customer for life.......
I rarely write reviews like this because most businesses I deal with don't stand out like this one. I recently had William Baldwin install a carburetor he rebuilt on a ford van I'm restoring. From the first phone conversation I had with him I figured he was an "old school" guy (even though he was younger than I had thought when I did met him) When I say old school I mean he has a real work ethic (he takes personal pride in his craft, does what he says he'll do and does it right) and genuinely cares whether his customer is satisfied with the work he does, which is rare these days. How do I know this--well, he came all the way from Thomasville to Durham, installed that carb in my van in the driveway, tuned it and took the time to educate me while he was working. The van was running perfectly when he left. The next day I had some trouble (not due to his work but because I didn't clean the gas tank well enough prior to reinstallation), I called him, he answered immediately , told me to get some tools and walked me through the process of troubleshooting. He knew exactly what and where the problem was and I had it fixed in minutes. When I initially called him to explain the problem he offered to come to Durham "right now" to fix it ---that, folks is "old school" customer service you just don't see anymore. He has since called a couple more times just to make sure all was good and I was happy with the outcome--hell yes !. I plan to do a few more performance upgrades to this van in the near future (he also took the time to advise me about those) and you know who I'll be taking it to for that--you bet ! If you are reading this review and considering getting any auto performance work done, do yourself a big favor and give Baldwin Performance a call FIRST (I've done the homework for you already, believe me !) --you'll be very happy you did. Thanks William for your expertise, outstanding customer service, patience and for doing things the "old school" way. Looking forward to the next stage !
So let me tell you...I took my old truck to Baldwin performance ( little hesitant first time dealing with them) man I'm so glad I did!! William saw right off the bat a few thing that weren't right and said give him a cpl days he'd have it fixed...I have to say I did miss not seeing my old truck in the driveway... It was well worth it!!! Runs totally different night and day results and I would recommend William to anyone who needs work done Great guy to work with and did great work on my old truck...... Thanks Baldwin Performance!!
It's not easy to find a Good Mechanic these days. I found one now. These guys are very good. The only guys I'll call from now on. Don't worry about being scammed with Baldwin. Honest and dependable. Finally got the Carb running like it was meant to be.
I have a 73' Vette with 350 and a Holley 670. The engine was rebulit about 800 miles ago. The engine had significant stumble when you hit it. The carb had been worked on several times by those who said that they knew Holley carbs. There were able to wrangle some improvement but the performance was still greatly lacking. I came across the William's web-site while internet searching for carb experts. I contacted William and made an appointment. William actually came to my house and set my up my carb in about 45 minutes. The performance is AMAZING!!! It runs smoother and has the power that I knew should have been there. It is awesome to have a resource like William. It was the best money I have spent on this car to date. THIS GUY KNOWS ENGINES AND CARBS!!! I am very particular when it comes to my vehicles and very cautions of who I let work on them. Trust me, you will not be disappointed with the work... and the RESULTS!!! I rate him 5 stars and he is my new go to guy!!!
This is one guy that knows what he's talking about! I had been to several shops before finding this place. After spending a lot of money and 6 months at other shops this guy found the problem and had me going in no time. I highly recommend this place. The type of work he does and the amount of pride he puts into his work is not found in today's generation. This is the only place I'll be going from now on!
I had spent hours on the phone with jegs and holley n I couldn't figure out how to adjust my new holley street avenger 670. This guy came to me and had my baby (74 Nova) sounding like a pro. I know it's gonna run as good as it sound as soon as I get on the road. And I'm sure if something goes wrong he'll take care of it no questions asked!! Awesome doing business with this man!!
They were top quality service for a reasonably good price! Very professional, prompt service, very knowledgeable. Would recommend this company for any of your automotive performance needs!!!
