So... I'm Back!!!

For those of you who followed me leaving FF not to long ago, I traded my Turbo ST for a 2008 Ram. That was about a week ago. Funny thing is, today I got a phone call from the Dealership asking me to come down with the truck. So I head down thinking maybe they got my spare key or floormats I have been waiting for.... Not even close!

Come to find out one of the Techies at the dealership noticed that I had drilled into the oil pan for the oil return line for the turbo, keep in mind I told them that it was a custom turbo'd focus, so they started asking me why I didn't mention that to them. Of course I was thinking about all the SRT-4's they had and wanted to point it out but I had a feeling I was fighting a losing battle. I told them that in order for a turbo to work that it needs to return oil to the pan.

Next thing I know they asked me to come inside to talk to the General Manager. Basically after 2.5 hours of arguing they told me that the sales contact for the Ram was VOID and gave me my keys back to the Focus. What a bunch of B/S if you ask me. I left about 500 miles worth of rubber on the ground of my precious Pirelli's. I am so disappointed, but at the same time glad because I couldn't find one Forum as good as FF!!!

Keep up the great work and I plan on fixxing up the custom turbo a little more in the near future!!

Yes, for good. I don't want to go through this crap again. Possibly thinking about getting a second car when I get to Washington State. Possibly a Fox Mustang or 60's Mustang. Maybe even consider a 5.0L swap for the focus???

Wow. Seriously though, when a dealer is taking a car with that kind of custom stuff done to the motor...what do they expect? Oh well.

That sucks/is good. they shouldn't have been able to do that. you can't take the truck back because you noticed that they drilled a hole in the floor plan. Go talk to the owner, complain, get free viper!

That really is crap, when you buy a car its always AS IS and they DAMN sure don't tell you whats wrong with it. WTF makes it any different when you sell the car?

Either way welcome back.

I know it is all B/S, but I am not about to start getting crazy about it. Deployed today so there isn't much I can do
