First, where is blueballs to man up and say he was wrong?I’m not attacking Ed. I clearly stated in messages on messenger, and in this forum, that I was willing to do what was needed and asked of me, to diagnose the problem, but that I felt like it was a turbo issue. I was trying to give Ed the benefit of the doubt, that he was onto something. Nothing checked out. Nothing worked. The only choice I made on my own was to get a different turbo. If I hadn’t made that choice, I would be left with a non-working car still. Ed didn’t like my speculation, which I have explained I was making as I didn’t really know if it was the turbo or not (I’m not hiding anything). He continued to save face, and speculate that it was electrical. Was it? Nope. But instead of manning up and saying he was wrong, he would just point out another thing to put the blame on me, like wastegate or install error. That’s literally a slap to my face. I don’t do well with that. Like I explained before, his diagnosis was as good as mine, but with my install of the IS38 yesterday, it looks like my diagnosis seemed to be the only one that worked.
I’m not mad. I’m frustrated at the unprofessionalism that I’ve been dealt with. He says he’s been trying to help me. Yes he has, but it’s came at a cost to him continually pointing out to me that I’m basically worthless and don’t know anything. I don’t deal with that kindly.
As far as him refunding it, well yeah. It’s faulty, and hasn’t ran well since week one. Of course he would be refunding it. That’s the risk you take as a business owner. Welcome to entrepreneurship.
Second, looks like he understands that since the turbo wasn't faulty he is no longer due a refund. Thats the risk you take when you install parts incorrectly.
