Starters and Ignition Repair For High-Performance Cars and Trucks

At Walt's Service Inc. in Columbia our expert mechanics can handle the precision auto repairs high-performance drivers expect. Drivers in Columbia count on Walt's Service Inc. to accurately reprogram automobile computers, outfit new cars and trucks with competition-grade ignition systems and upgrade starters for older muscle cars. Call today at 573-449-4171 to set up an appointment.

If you own a high-performance engine don't overlook a starter that struggles to turn over. The intense engine compression ratio of high-performance cars can burn out traditional OEM starters that are unable to get a car or truck pistons to move up and down fast enough. Adding a high torque starter and ignition system can add the extra cranking power a high-performance vehicle needs.

In addition, high-performance engines take up more space creating less room for the starter. High torque starters are lighter and smaller than an OEM starter to provide increased ground, oil pan, and header clearance. Turn over your engine reliably in the driveway or on the track and let Walt's Service Inc. install a new high-amp battery and high-torque mini starter today.

If you are restoring an older muscle car, Walt's Service Inc. can help you keep the power flowing by adding state of the art digital ignition controls, a performance distributor, and low-resistance ignition wires. Rely on the mechanics at Walt's Service Inc. to revitalize your older car's starter and ignition system with a new wiring harness, distributor cap, rotor and spark plugs. Stop by our auto repair shop in Columbia and discuss your restoration today.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Was driving from NY to LA when my Bus started dying on the highway. Lookup the nearest VW mechanic and come here. Walt is great! He took a look at my Bus, even though it was late and he was busy-and told me the last guy who rebuilt the engine screwed up. I trusted Walt to rebuild the engine, and he did it cheaper and quicker than the first mechanic, and much better! I now have 10-15mph higher top speed and it runs a lot smoother. Driving from MO to LA I went from losing 1qt/1000 miles to losing no oil! Superb job, honest guy, nobody knows more about air-cooled VWs than he.

My daughter, a MU student, and her used 2007 high mileage Audi A4 broke down, the car was towed to Walt's. Walt called me the next day and went over his diagnostics and recommendations. He only recommended what needed to be done and did not recommend useless/costly repairs. When the car was complete, he called me with the final bill which was totally reasonable. He was timely and great to work with! I highly recommend this repair shop, it is so hard to find honest and qualified technicians and mechanics these days and Walt is truly one of the best I have ever worked with. I will definitely be back, thank you so much!

I have an old (2001) high mileage (155k+) VW Golf, and I only take it to Walt's. The staff is friendly, honest, fair, and fairly quick with repairs. They give you options and explain the pros and cons of optional repairs. They keep my old Golf running well, with fair costs for repairs. I would (and have) recommended to anyone with a VW or similar German car.

I had my MINI Cooper serviced here. These guys are great. They showed me everything about my car (as I know nothing about cars). The Baron MINI in Kansas City told me I needed new front and back brakes and rotors. After showing me how much brake pad I had left on the back brakes, the guy at Walt's said "that's nuts and these should last at least another year". They also did quality work and cost a couple hundred bucks less! I am very pleased!

I have seen the work they do on Porsche 911's, many times, first hand. They are friendly and helpful. Very knowledgeable staff. If they tell you something, listen to them. The best Porsche service in MO.

To say that Walt is honest would be the understatement of the century! As a female, I'm always nervous about being taken advantage of. And with a 2005 BMW Z4, sometimes work needs to be done!Thank you Walt. You have created a loyal customer.

Would not take my Passat Wagon anywhere else! They have always finished my repairs in a very timely manner and at the most reasonable rates. They are truly professional in all areas of service. Thanks again, guys, for taking care of me and my vehicle.

This place is trustworthy, dependable and communicates everything to you very well. I graduated from MU and now drive all the way from Saint Louis so that I can get my car serviced at this location. No other service center can compare to these guys.

A good shop with experienced techs and good labor rate compared to larger places. They know what they are doing!

reviewicon

Walt's shop has worked on three of my vehicles during the past couple of years. Results were excellent, and I found their prices competitive with other shops in the area. Everyone there is helpful and courteous. My vehicles include domestic brand trucks and SUV's so be aware Walt's work is not limited to just imported models.

reviewicon

This shop has been consistently top notch for service, honesty, and pricing. Although the specialize in foreign cars, I also take my other vehicles to them, as well. I highly recommend them.
