**BEWARE**Vortech install gone bad!

There is an incompetent individual named "Alberto" a former Ford Chip tuner who tried, let me say it again TRIED to install a blower on my car this past weekend and hacked the **** out of it. When he came in and said he was done I freaked! He did one of the most incomplete jobs I have ever seen on a car. I know why let him touch my car?? I was referred to him by a good friend and I lost out big time.. If you should ever run into this cocky ass f!#k, I would not let him TOUCH your ride if you value it. He tunes cars for local shops so BEWARE! This the list of things he did not do and he said he was done, I recieved this e-mail from the friend who referred him a day later:

1.) Inline fuel pump needs to be wired. There is a lot of extra fuel
tubing as we were mocking it up for installation. Also, there is one
fitting with an extra long "attachment" on the set-up that we didn't
test out, so keep an eye on it. The inline pump is new and is good.
The pump needs to either me removed or wired out of the way if you're
towing it. (left it hanging under my car to the floor)

2) There was a bolt missing form the Vortech kit for the alternator
bracket, so there is a bolt missing for the bracket. The idler pulley
needs to be tightened down. (he stripped bolts bolting the blower to the bracket, by putting a bolt to long for the hole and trying to tighten it flush)

3) The vortech head unit itself and MAF are set-up properly. You do
have a Cobra intake, which changes a lot of the geometry.

4) The bypass valve is only temporarily there, you will want to take it
out. ITs attached to the head unit, you'll see it in the back of the
head unit, its just sitting there loosely w/ the two very short hoses
that look like radiator hoses. (used no hose clamps)

5) The oil pan needs to be flushed to remove any residue shavings. (FROM DRILLING )

6) Belts need to be attached.

7) Top a/c hose line needs to be elongated and/or replaced. The top
fitting is tight and needs to be flanged/enlarged. I know you put a lot
of work into the line polishing and painting, but I just wanted to let
you know that it did need to be bent almost 90 degrees to get out of the
way of the fan. (They broke my condenser line)

8.) Remember the fresh plugs.

They were using VICE GRIPS to loosen my oil sender nut and to bend and scar my A/C line.

The whole time he was working on the car his favorite phrases were..."Oh this is so gay"......"Look at this homosexual ****"......

He sounds like a faag to me and I hope you read this, you IDIOT!

My car is now all f!#ked up to say the least, I am so PISSED!!

We weren't done. We have been over this... You and him decided to stop the job at that point since you thought it would have been done by then and so he told you what remained to be done. Your "friend" who organized this and was having me help him under HIS shop name is pahying for you to finish the install at a shop of your choice since you were not happy we weren't done in the time you two agreed.

You also got a received a brand new condenser and it was already installed. Your car is fine. You need to give it a rest ad you have not been wronged. You are developing a personal vendetta agaisnt me for no reason.

I have addressed this in your other posts and I am posting it again here.
