    Ok, let me start over... It is very hard to get a hold of Vince, never answers When i called him and never returned my messages... He damaged my Transmission on my A4 Camaro Z28 at the time I had it, I had to go to Oregon to my good friend Big Jeremy, who thank GOD that had my stock tune on my Camaro and was able to return it to somewhat stock again. It never quite shifted the same after that.

    For some reason, Vince couldn't bring my Trans back to stock and it shifted so harsh that it broke my trans mount and I could have had a major malfunction on my trans and various other drive line components. Well that Camaro is now totaled because of some old lady who cut in front of me.

    So the same thing happened to Owens 98 Camaro Z28... He tried very hard to talk to Vince to try to get his trans fixed back to stock. (his trans shifts so harsh, I can't even describe it) I think he sand bagged Owen several times and never returned his calls or messages. I feel sorry for anyone who has faith in someone who I was very respectful the whole time through my rough situation with my Trans and couldn't respectfully comply with a simple request.

    So much for a reliable tuner. I am very upset that he took $100 out of my Pocket to make my car perform worse...And not to include and very whipped out $125 Dyno tune that should have actually had some time taken on it to tune it, and do a 30 min change timing and advanced spark, fuel trim, etc. So I hope you take this seriously because I am...and to think that a certain someone thinks he is a Tuning GOD. Well I respectfully disagree and I would never let him touch another one of my cars again. Sorry things could have been better Vince. But the maturity of your actions need to be exposed. You hurt your business with the F-Body Community, i can guarantee that.

    I apologize for baning you, you really showed a poor way to introduce yourself in your last thread..i saw this title again..and went at it..my mistake.

    However, public bashing will not be allowed. you can state your case..but i hope you dont present yourself like you did last time.

    Well, I was very patient and gave a lot of my time, i offered several times to drive up hours out of my way to get my trans fixed, and Owen just gave up on it himself...Its not fair to people who spend money and don't get results from what they paid for...he is a tuner, not perfect I understand, but not taking responsibility is just plain wrong and unhonest, A Certain someone thinks he is god at tuning, and to talk crap to my Friend and his GF and even to my Face is very disrespectful, I did not appreciate it and It relates to this thread because the said person who was bashing on my friends was also praising this man for tuning a "Stage 2 Cammed Cobalt"

    whos your friend and his girlfriend?

    ---------- Post added at 01:12 AM ---------- Previous post was at 01:08 AM ----------

    and you honestly cant expect a older A4 GM trans to never break...the added TQ from the tune probably set if over the edge.

    I think you know its the Super Charged Saturn Ion owner...and I think he had a legit argument and it turned into a conflict because the other said person disagreed and then proceeded to talk down to my friend and etc. Not going to get much further in detail. But really isnt smart to call other peoples friends an idiot much worse and then act all nice to me when the said person was checking out my car. I even told him to his face that the Ion owner is my friend, and he said "Oh, Im sorry" and etc.

    i've heard both sides of this story..i hope you have as well..

    the owner your talking about..jesse..is a pompius prick and internet tough guy, he sucks the cock of a few and expects them to back him up when he backs himself into a cornor. He explicts his girlfriends (who i might add, in my own personal opinion..is not attractive what so ever) nude pictures to win COTM and then brags about it. Yes, ive talked to jesse and he knows how i feel..i dotn hate him i just am dissapointed the way he choice to do things. as far as him having it out with tom, if you seriously think your pal jesse had nothing to add to the fire in that situation then you are really drunk.

    My trans never slipped and always shifted perfectly fine, even in the high RPMS, it wasnt added torque, dude Im a technician for VW... and it was added line pressure to make the clutches in the transmission grab harder and more firm, If he knew how to tune it correctly, it should have shifted firm, and smooth, not banging and slamming... take it how ever you want, my Camaro's trans was stronger then any 4 or 6 cylinder auto trans. :think: I think its fair to say that it happened to my friend Adam's 2002 CETA Trans Am, with Vinces Tune his trans went out about a couple thousand miles after he got the tune as well. So he had to replace it with a stage 2 trans etc.

    what i was getting at is..you cant expect Vince to purchase you a new transmission...that would be like K&N replacing your engine because it broke after you put a intake on.
