Thanks for that. You're right it's not my fight anymore. I stood up for him and most likely did him amd myself more damage. Clearly I don't live by thee threads I jump in hear and when a few push and merely pushed back. Links about fake posts and BS like that side step the fact about customer service. If you chose to ignore Tom D, Sweasey, GMG69, Me and the others so be it.

I still don't think Granatelli screwed you. But again I am aloud to have my own opinion. Had he not sent you back the 2k I would be all in on your side. Something tells me if you called Granatelli and sid he want your turbos back he would just give you 2 more brand new ones in exchange for teh $2000 refund he gave you . But again why do that when your engineer can sell them to you for less.

BBB isn't the greatest feedback anymore. I watched a special on 20/20 about BBB and there was instances that if a company doesn't pay they didn't give them a grade they deserve and vice versa. heres a link check it out.

Yeaaa - their rating is a little too high in my opinion.

Ok. There was a 50/50 chance you knew what color tapatalk's backgrounds was (black). I couldn't tell if you were being a dick or just didn't know where I was coming from. Sorry.

Yeah man. Tapatalk, my version at least, has a black background. Blue was super hard to read, and then you changed it to black.. haha. I thought you were jackin with me.

Well almost immediatley the F-150 started to misfire and after bringing it back to JR 4 times (he installed a new coil wire each time, blamed the parts saying they couldn't handle the heat ????? ) And it still misfires to this day just not as often since I don't drive the truck as much anymore.
Now the Hummer check engine light comes on and code says misfire ! Hmmm funny ! JR installs his shitty parts (in my opinion) and bam ! Problems !
The Hummer is going to the dealer and will post what they say on Friday. I'm not 100% sure it's Granatelli's fault re: the Hummer, but my bet it is !
Also added all my receipts and spent over $36,000. with that POS !
I need a scarlet letter "D" (for dummy) to wear.
Just curious, with all of the very reputable hi-po shops available & feedback information available.....why did you go there in the 1st place?

I have to ask, if you had turbo installed for one week and they crapped the bed, would you want to have to go in an buy two new turbos or drag your car 1000 miles home... How it I had to pay 3600 dollars for two turbos that JR told me retailed for 1600... and he paid substantially less than that for them... I have a price sheet directly from Precision.

This is my opinion, and like you, I am entitled to it based on the way I was treated...
Speaking of opinions we had talked about turbos a while ago, focusing on turbo size. Our conversation, that also included another member, led me to calling tial about turbos and motor size. I know we don't have the same turbos, but they said with a 427 2 GT35s would have no problems and these turbo are about the same size as your old ones. That and the fact that I've had a 416 for 7,000 miles on the the same turbos that I've had for the last 30,000 miles make me think the granatelli/tti kit might have had an oiling issue or something.
Anyway more to the subject at hand, I'm sorry that you are having those issues with Granatelli. My experience with him was a brief but positive one, but when I went to purchase his turbo kit the salesman I was talking to about the kit could have won an award for being the biggest asshole on earth (Apparently he did me a favor)......so I bought the IPS kit. This was in January 2011.

Two of the biggest GT35s (GT3582R) wouldn't be big enough for his HP target. The GTX3582R would probably not get him there with N20. Running those small of turbos full out for a mile would not be wise.

Wow..Like other's I've read every page of this thread today. It was that intersting. I've only gota V6 myself and don't have the big bucks to mod like some of y'all but I will say that if I did and this BS happened to me I'd be raising hell and doing what I could to make people aware of the situation. Any other business would be shut down for sure. Can't believe there may still be a lot of people being taken by these crooks...
