Recently (ish) we went back to Nip N Tuck Performance to catch up with Dustin and Mitch and present them with a challenge. My brother’s car had a whole host of things wrong, and they said they’d fix them. These things included:
Two broken motor mounts
Bad wheel bearing
bad valve cover gasket
bad serpentine belt
terrible seats (but they couldn’t do anything about these. I just felt like expressing my disdain for them)
And they fixed them… In an hour and seventeen minutes! Thus proving that they’re not just a performance shop.
After that Trent and I got to working on this here little feature. The shop has changed quite a bit since the last time we brought you a feature on it. Counters went in and were wrapped in a carbon fiber wrap. Product was carefully placed in the display cases, and then around the shop because they carry a lot of stuff.
The outside has been painted gray and yellow, and they got themselves a big Duramax Silverado which hangs out in front of the shop. You can’t really miss the building, nor can you miss the big diesel pickup with Nip N Tuck stickers, carbon fiber trim and “NIPNTUK” license plates.
In the shop itself were some serious projects: the 700AWHP Evo we showed you, a blue SRT4 with a massive rotated mount turbo kit and a fuel system where the trunk used to be, and a 4AGE swapped Toyota Corona.
So to sum up: Nip N Tuck is different because the building has been painted and the show room has been given counters; however, it’s the same because they can build you a serious car while fixing all the problems on your mom’s Camry.
