At this point I returned the emails saying I would get back to him, this is what I got after not replying for a few days.



I replied that I did not understand and got this;



At no point did I quote, or take funds I simply did not reply to this person. At this point I am glad I did not take them on for a tune because I can see now what a disaster that would have been. NO ONE will ever demand my attention or tell me what I NEED to be doing.
He is obviously of the FRENCH-Canadian...you can just tell.

Hey Justin sucks that there are fucks like this who really don't get it. I always hope these guys get the hard way through life just because they attempt to shit on people whiteout regard.

Hope your mom checks as clear and all is well! Thoughts are with you and your mom.

My first piece of advice to help ALL small businesses succeed:

1. Fire your ten worst customers. The few that suck the life out of you and provide very little financial gain. Then with your new-found free time, go get better customers and improve your business.

Repeat #1 at least once every year.

That's great advice. I'm in the process of eliminating one of my larger clients who just monopolizes my time for his gain. I can't wait to take the 3-4 hours a day I spend dealing with his crap to find new clients.

Unfortunately, our tuner friends are in the relatively unique position that a lot their time is devoted to people that AREN'T customers, but behave as though they are. This fucktard from Montreal hadn't paid Mr. Hollywood a dime yet was going to badmouth him on a forum as though he had. He cannot fire or even ignore these idiots. This is why I ignore virtually all posts devoted to giving negative feedback regarding a vendor or tuner. 95% are horseshit. Only in situations of gross negligence do I see those types of threads warranted.

I've bothered every tuner on this thread at one point or another and am grateful for all the time and advice I've received from them. May each of you live to be a thousand.

I wanted to leave a great appreciation for Hollywood helping me figure out a issue with my car. He took the time to help me out even though he did NOT tune my car. Maybe my issue could help someone out in the future as well. Hollywood and this problem helped me learn more about my car.

Long story short, back in November before my car went into SEMA, I noticed that the idle on my car was basically terrible. My air to fuel ratios were jumping around hitting 13s to 17s even full lean sometimes, and the RPMs were also not stable either.

I PM'd Hollywood in a long detailed message if he could help me figure out my cars problem. He told me it could probably be the blow off valve being loose or open at idle and he was right. I got a new turbosmart dual port blow off valve with a different spring than it originally came with and it FIXED my problem. My idle is back to normal. On top of that I had to get my cars tune adjusted again because it was holding more boost. I went from 386/361 to 400/358, stock turbo on E85. My old synapse dv was leaking somehow which later I found out why and is now fixed.

Thank you and appreciate the help once again Hollywood
