You are gonna have that. He has lots of customers. And he is currently traveling across the US so replys in a hurry aren't gonna happen either. Just telling you what to expect.

And no, I'm not a fan of remote tuning. I don't have the time to do all that. I've only gone to Tom's shop in NC to get my car dyno tuned. I've done that a handful of times.

A good reason to not go to him might be the fact that he's retired and may not have the time or want to make the time to do tuning. Don't not go to him for tuning because you've heard of one customer's problems with him.

Thats wrong there are actually alot of ppl but most people wont speak up

Why do you think he's hasn't been a vendor on FJ?

Because of issues just like yours with him.

Good luck with getting this fixed.

I am on vacation and this was brought to me today

What wasent said was the Hrs and Hrs that was put in on this car with issue after issue that had nothing to do with what I got paid to do , TUNING

What wasent said was how upset he would get because I wouldnt drop all other customers and ONLY work on his car , as much as I would like to do this it isnt realistic or fair to other customers

What wasent said was how I was constantly being told how he wanted his car tuned vs the way it needed to be tuned

What hasent been said was I have had my files recovered for 2 months now and not contact what so ever from this customer and even after sending him PM, Or how he would go weeks with no tuning then BAM show up and want me to drop everything to do his

I have no issue still tuning his car , If my remote tuning had dropped off any others would be on here not just one guy , I have tuned about 6 cars just why on vacation the last 5 weeks and about 75-90 cars sence I started tuning his

The best thing to do is contact you tuner with issues before posting things like this , you stopped tuning with me not me tuning with you and all because you had a temper tantrum and wanted things done you way or no way at all

I spent about 20 hrs just helping you fix non tuning issues and last tune you still have issues , If you want to finish tuning then go by and follow the rules and try contacting me and lets get it done , its that easy

Tom

A lot of people ? Please tell me who they are , your pissed because you had bad parts on your engine and the comp turbo didnt work because of it , stop bashing me for you probelms and sticking your head in every chance you get doing it , you chose to change tuners because of issues and bad choises about bad parts on your car why blame that on me

You say my driveability was bad , I guess so with cam gears not adjusted and crappy COP issues , why was that my fault , you had issues , you posted about them and all was found with these issues not changing tuner , if you had found them why I was tuning you would of got the same results , if you have something to say to me be man enough to pick up the phone

After reading all of this and 2 PM sent to Blue one of them 2 weeks ago I have yet to hear from him , I will say this if he keeps bashing me and not contacting me I will not finish his tuning

I am on vacation , he knows how to contact me by IM , PM , email , phone and nothing ?

Many customers can tell you I am slow because of vacation but still tuning many care , EVERY customer is important to me and I want them all 100% happy , You cant make them all happy but I try

Lol there you go again with the same shit tom. There was nothing wrong with my car stop using the same g excuses as to why my car made shit power on a shit compturbo how about you man up for once. I have all the datalogs showing the tune was there. Idk how manytimes I have to say it all I did was change turboes and took it to Fernando and bam made power drives perfect etc. I have ppl on this board who have riden in my car when you tunes it on the compturbo and felt how shit it was. Moat won't post because they don't wanna deal with your excuses and argue blah blah. You have my number too, I could careless to call you. If you really feel the need to talk call me. Don't try to make excuses as to why you disnt make the power.
