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.

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?
