lol Wal!! It hasnt been as long as this thread is old thankfully
I jsut brought this back up because when I was searching online, I did come across it and it made me sick to my stomach for something to be floating around in internet land with me endorsing frybrid.
I used to be a strong supporter of his system even though I didnt use it. I read nothing but good reviews about it and read about many happy customers, no real complaints ever. BUT that was "back in the day", even before I had my bus. From what I have been able to gather, it seems, he did have a bangup good product and took care of his customers too! But something happened (maybe the market fell out? I dont know, but something) and around 2005-2006 he began screwing over his new customers... at least MANY of them. THEN apparently he was getting a bad rap even on his own forum so he started banning people and deleting threads to make himself look better. He also set up at least one business to be the "fall guy" and take the blame for non shipment or other shipping problems. It just stinks!!! Bad, bad, bad!!
But as for me, I ordered an off the shelf (non customized) kit for my 6.2l suburban that he said he had 4 of sitting on the shelf along with the tanks. I ordered and payed on May 15, 2012 by cash bank deposit into his account. I was told (both on the phone when I ordered it and in email) that it would be shipped within a couple days. After multiple broken promises and emails, it became apparent to me that he was not going to send the kit or I was going to have to wait f-o-r-e-v-e-r June 11, 2012 which is when I first demanded a refund, then for the first time I got absolutely no response from him. I never would have ordered the kit if I knew I was going to have to wait for it like this. Since that time I have phoned him once and emailed him 2x demanding a refund. He has refused to respond and deleted my post early this month inquiring how long it takes to get a shipment normally. Now though, since I went public in the last couple of days, he has deleted every post I EVER made at his forum and banned me "forever" with "no reason specified"!
