Actually you said you would be in town Tuesday and I said fine. I went to Granatelli and told them to have you call me when you got there.

The fact that Granatelli and TTi claimed to both sell a kit has little to do with this issue. You’re mad and still contend that Granatelli stole your turbos. However you were credited in full for them $1000 each. You only paid for the upgrade and it appears Granatelli paid the shipping to boot. You give the guy no credit for going out of his way to help you at the event. You make it clear you never called turbo tech when your turbos took a dump but in the same breath call Granatelli (the company) incompetent but still expected them to step up to the plate and pay for all your problems. If Granatelli would have gave you the journal bearing turbos off his display engine in exchange for your failed journal bearing turbos it seems to me it would have been a wash. That is not what I saw. I saw you were credited $2000 so again you appear to have only paid for BB upgrades. If the man made a profit that is why he is in business. You can debate all day long what a fair profit is. Again I said I would look into it and when I did rather then disprove the facts you flipped your point and made it about a privacy thing.

You asked:



That seems to be a contradiction sir because above you said you never called George you just went direct to Granatelli because you had his cell number. Again you said you never called George who I assume is turbo tech. All the talk about Granatelli or TTi or Granatelli/TTi as if they where one is mute because Granatelli in fact serviced you at the track and you admit Granatelli is the only one you called once you had a problem.



He showed me Texas and the Date of invoice to prove it was the same guy which again now based on your response you are agreeing he showed me the right one. It was not about giving away personal info or violating anyone’s privacy. You made it public when you came here and made the claims – he merely told his side and evidenced it with documentation.

At this point I am not defending Granatelli as much as I am calling BS on false claims. If I were Granatelli I certainly would not be here driving this thread count up and digging in like I am. I am sure even Granatelli wants this to die. Respect is not given it is earned. You don’t know me well enough to respect my word and I get that. Your post count earns you respect but when you make unsupported claims you begin to loose points as well. It clear you and Granatelli have the same recollection as to the where, when, why and how as it relates to your turbo failure. But where you guys are miles apart is service after the sale. He says he sold you new BB turbos and then credited you 100% of your original purchase for the journal bearing turbos. You say you lent the turbos to Granatelli for the show and expected them back, yet you did not take them back after the event was over and before you all went home. Granatelli sent the turbos back to Precision and then credited you 100% of your money and only charged for the upgrade. You say you just wanted the turbos back. OK GREAT. So riddle me this Batman. Granatelli gave you $1000 per turbo when you already said he pays much less. If Granatelli was only in it for the money why did he pay you exactly what you paid originally? Baring in mind you did not purchase them directly from him. All the while there was not a dime out of your engineers’ pocket or turbo techs? See where I keep going back to?
J.R., Give it up....

Like in so many forums and postings, you come up with this pseudo (fake) name, and try to save face...

So many people on so many forums have learned the truth about you... You live in a fantasy world... Just as on other forums, you can't let it go...

I'm sure if Granatelli were feeding you "Jim Day" information, he would have asked you to stop driving this thread... But you J.R. don't know when to stop... You never have... Like the links in this thread, you always come back... You screw people and then can't stand the heat...

Come up with an original method of deception... Too many see through this one...

Once again... I bought the turbo's... They belonged to me... he offered to ship them to Precision... and I stated I would pay the upgrade fees and the shipping... but was never given the oppurtunity. You decided that out of your own generosity you would sell them... They were not yours to sell...

I contacted Precision and was told there were specific instructions included to ship them back to You....

As for calling you rather than George... we spoke for a couple of minutes and then you told me you were going to call George... and then you called me back.... Remember that little detail... I do...

Why would you call George if this had no bearing on the details of helping the customer... You and George were in bed on this one... George was the builder of the kit, you were the marketer...

I bet you are having hell keeping this conversation spoken in the third party aren't you...

jojo, fofo... hmmmm not very original, but I guess you can remember that... How many other fake names do you have...

That was an interesting read on the Ford forum where you were caught red handed trying to use an employees name, what was it, Nick... That was so convoluted it was hard to follow for a bit, but there it was in black and white... Busted...

You screw people, deny it to the end, and then blame others when caught... Wow... must suck being you....

oh, and when you claim to be someone else, you need to at least make sure that person exists...

There is no Jimmy or James Day listed in Thousand Oaks California...

There is no mention of Jimmy or James Day in the public records of Thousand Oaks...

Care to try again J.R....

I agree, but I think he's screwed up his story enough to prove that he isn't who he says he is... Since there is a rule against double accounts, and this is most likely JR, it would violate the rules.

I must say, this thread drew me in and I read it all the way through. The fun thing about today's internet is that hiding isn't as easy as it used to be.

Case in point: one of the links that somebody provided to one of evilcamaro's threads was interesting. There were three photos: one under-hood shot, one under-car shot, and one turbo closeup.

Not sure how many know this, but you can search Google for like photos. Just drag it into the search field and it'll scan the web for them.

That said, those photos appeared in no less than 7 forums; one was posted in 2010. LOL. Okay. Busted.

I feel for the OP and for our C5 mod. Why businesses choose to operate this way puzzles me. The internet can be great for a business, or the death of it. The fact that the guy (JR) thinks that people can't identify the similarities in posts under different screen names cracks me up. As a bystander, it's clear as day.

The only business Granatelli will see will come from the uninformed. Any logical, web-savvy person that buys from this crook is simply asking for it.

Good luck to all.

Gotta say, I've never seen a thread like this one...lol...

My $.02...If this "soslow" guy is JR, all the better, so what?...lol..

It's threads like this that make me glad I haven't sunk a ton of money into the performance thing...The risk vs. gain just doesn't seem worth it, no matter who does the work...

I will say this though, as far as who's fake and all that...Tom D and the Ventura boys have some sweet rides, I've seen them...If they say they've had good luck with Granatelli, I'd believe them....They're no dummies or yes-men...

Just my input...no biggie...Good luck to the OP....carry on...

Yep. I have read a bunch of threads like this over the years... and it's precisely why I do all of my own work. I even hang around at the tire shop and watch them to make sure they don't go joyriding in my car. People suck. That's all there is to it.

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.

I will have more info on Friday, but here's another issue coming to light regarding the POS, JR Granatelli's work and parts.
He also did some minor work on my F-150 awhile ago and Hummer approx. 2 months ago, basically his air intake and coil packs on both.
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.
