alls someone had to do is say he has a prob, or he could have simply emailed a mod about it, too simple i guess.
Actually, not that simple. See bellow;

Now this is interesting. You say you got the parts after the engine blew. That is a negative. You put SVT headers on your non svt motor and fried the power steering line. You call me up and tell me how bad you need the line and the dipstick. I agree to give you the parts. Then, by your count, August 17th, the engine blows. You got the parts from me before August 17th.

I made my first polite request for my parts back in November because I was going to do the swap over thankgiving weekend. I was in contact with you throughout December via text. I was again in contact with you in January because I told you I was going to do the swap on my birthday weekend. The reason I did not rush you back then was because I was having problems passing smog. I still wanted the parts to be in my garage, ready and waiting for the header swap.

The fact is, from the time I gave you the parts to now has been more than 6 months. Had I not given you the parts, you might have possibly had your power steering pump break like mine did, before you blew your engine.

My mistake was giving parts to a friend and trusting he would replace them within a decent time frame regardless if I had my header swap ready to go or not. It is called being responsible and pro-active.

In regards to our texting, yes, i did call you names. Yes, I did go off on you. No, I never threatened you. I am not a violent person. I think karma comes back and gets people in the ass. It would be pointless for me to threaten you because I have been out of high school way too long and I don't play those games.

Finally, I never did this for sympathy. I did this to warn people about you. I also did this to warn people about doing business with friends. Sometimes it goes south.

Sure, there are people who have had a positive experience with you. Sure, you do help out. Like I said before, we were friends. Why you went south on this trade, I will never know. Why you attempted to buy a super charger when you knew you owed me parts, I will never know that either. Why you tried to get a newer car which would incur higher car payments than the turtle, unless the turtle is paid off, i will never know. You still owed me parts.

You go posting all over the place about all this cool stuff that you get for your car but you forget the fact that you owe someone something. That is where you lack maturity. That is where you come up short on being responsible. I look forward to recieving the money order and signing the slip.

Thank you for repaying the trade.

GIL

You know... I wasn't going to justify your comment being that I'm not involved in this topic and had no hard feelings against you... but... since when does multiple voice mails and text's not justify as an attempt on my part? Especially when you fail to return any of them? I would never expect anyone to put down cash for me. If I recall correctly I was even going to give YOU extra for doing me this favor. Dude you guys are too much. This is obviously a waste of time and causing more damage than good. And BTW I did get my own being that you owe me no favors.
