    All right, since it looks like he's not going to refund the money for the cam, anyone that is local to him, can take whatever off his car that you feel is worth $120 on me. That's free parts for you on my behalf. If you're local and can stop by and get the cash, you can have half, just send the other half to me. That's $60 for just stopping by and doing what you need to do.


    This guy is a theif. I bought some parts off of him claiming to be Skunk2 intake cam, a good amp, and like-brand new pistons.....I receive a stock cam, a broken amp, and a set of very used pistons. Paypal verified don't mean shit.

    You have fun with my credit card company though.

    Yeah ouch, you got what was described, an amp which works but you claim it has a broken terminal, some other pistons that i said were used, and you claim their too used and an intake cam. So dont come on here saying im a thief, youve tried to call paypal on me and your creditcard company, but they both told me they cant do anything cuz your just disputing the quality of goods, not that you didnt recieve anything. .thank you, and yes the items are still for sale, i have pics if interested...

    Misreprestenting goods is as bad as stealing the money sent. You might as well send a rock in place of a OEM cam, if you're advertising a Skunk2.

    Maybe specie should post an email communication, between you two, or you could do the same, a link to the sale in someway, something to prove one way or the other. Till then it's tit for tat, order at your own risk people.

    I haven't called the credit card company. Trust me, the credit card company will get my money back, as in the e-mail, I know that paypal won't do shit.

    A stock intake cam is NOT skunk2 intake cam.
    A amp with a broken remote terminal is NOT a good amp.
    A set of pistons with broken rings and a set that is 81mm is NOT 81.5mm and "like brand new" as described.

    DEFEND THAT YOU THEIF.
    I'm busy with school, but you just motivate me to call my credit card company.

    If you don't want to resolve this, I'll ship all of the parts (Rockford fosgate amp, camshaft, and the pistons) back on Monday. I wanted to confirm the address:







    I can keep the amp for spare parts, but I'd need a refund for $120 for the camshaft. If not, I'm going to ship all of the parts out on Monday and contact my credit card company the same time. As of now, I have not contacted them.

    Paul,



    I just received the package today.

    The cam is not a Skunk2 Stage 1 cam. The Skunk2 cams have a "M" and a "2"on the base lobe, the cam you sent me does not. It has a "E" stamp on it. It very much looks like a stock Honda vtec cam. I'm not sure of which variety though.

    The pistons are 81mm, not 81.5mm like you had stated. Also, one of the ring is broken so I can't use it. No wrist locks came with it either.

    The amp is missing the remote terminal, so I'm not even sure if it works.

    I'd like a refund for the parts, since the parts aren't how they were described. Let me know how you want to work this out. Thanks.



    Ken

    I'll tell my friend about it. They are the JE not the lower quality SRP, right? Could you check to see how much new rings are? I'll be able to send you the payment in an hour when I can log into paypal. Thanks.

    I'm using a stock b16 head, thinking about the AEBS intake manifold. Still not sure on the header though, maybe Bisimoto, headertech, or dc jdm 4-1.

    All right, I'll send you the paypal tonight. Will you have everything out tomorrow morning? I guess I'm a little excited trying to get the project started. JE made them exactly to the specs as the jdm itr pistons? How long did it take? My friend is wants a set of custom pistons for his setup also.

    That sounds good Paul. Pistons are in good shape, right? I just wanted to verify that nothing is wrong with them, correct? Would you happen to have the box that came with them? I'll send out another paypal to you tonight. Also, do you have the box and manual for the Rockford amp and what happened to the Skunk2 exhaust cam?



    Thanks again.

    I'm going to put this in a ls/vtec also. Do you know the cc on it, that way I can calculate the CR. IF it's 11.8:1 on a b16, it'll be a whole lot on a ls/vtec. Let me know if you find out the weight, and cc. Also, what's the lowest you can sell it to me, since I've bought your other items? Thanks.

    What is your setup and have you dyno it yet? I wanted a compression ratio around 11.8:1 since I'm going NA also. How much does each piston weigh? Comes with the lock also, right? I really like the Wiseco more because I've read that the material is thicker around the edges. How do you like the Endyns and how much did they cost you? Have you received any offers on the pistons yet?


    Thanks.

    I'm thinking about them. Money on my account is kind of low, but they might be something that I can use. How did you ended up using them for only a few miles and taking your whole bottom end apart?

    They're 81.5mm, right? What pistons did you ended up going with? Do you know how much new rings would cost? Thanks.

    Paul,

    Once again, the pistons are .10 over, measure them, if you say it has a broken ring, it coould have been damaged during the shipping voyage since they were installed on the pistons, the amp is just what i said, a "rockford fosgate amp" i did not notice it had a broken terminal, but that is not gonna keep it from not working. and as for the cam, i said i will refund it, but you keep bombarding me with threatining emails, so that doesnt motivate me to send the money any quicker. -paul-

    thats still doesnt explain me being a thief...
    the cam being the only complaint, i sold it as something that was described to me. and resold it to you since i had no use for it since i also changed cams. i said i would refund it....

    If you're so quick to defend yourself, why don't you clear up your name by sending me a refund for the cam? I don't need excuses....

    Hmmm....I still haven't seen a refund for the cam yet. Could it be that the petty criminal wants free money? I'll delete all my posts once I get a refund, but until then everything stays.

    I don't think a thief would return free money. I think he feels like he earned it. Let's just say I'd be very suprised if he actually refund anything back. However, what goes around comes around, so if something happens to his car.....I won't be sympathetic.


    Thanks for the bump....just trying to warn potential buyers.

    This sort of placing a bounty will no longer be tolerated. You will resolve this yourself without attempting to enlist help from other members. We have no way of knowing if you are telling the truth or not so no one should do anything to get involved in this at all. tnsxear will be added to the bad sellers list as he has not done anything to make this problem right or posted anything in his own defense. He will be removed from that list if he can show that the parts sold were the parts advertised or if he returns specie his money.

    I have proposed that this posting of a home address and calling for personal harm or vehicle damage result in a suspension or ban from the forum. If you cannot handle the problem yourself it's too bad. I hate to put it like this but we have no way of knowig who the guilty party in a situation like this is, there are too many factors that we will never hear. Nor is Hondaswap a collection agency.
