I have been taking my Zo6 to Paddock chevy since i bought it there. Their corvette tech John Gorman is excellent. He's they only one ill let do oil changes or updates on my car and Im very picky! Give them a call to see if they can do those updates for you? If they can ask when John is working and have him do them!

Lol just seen the "toon" in your old car along with the zip ties. I guess you made the right choice with that meticulous installation & toon. To think that supercharged car was tuned on an inertia dyno makes me cry. Don't worry I will fix it.

nah just a local idiot I should have never matched a price from an unauthorized A&A dealer down in Texas. Was all worried about me “joy riding” his 1998 C5 when at the time I owned a supercharged built C6. Lol at the drunk to work. After seeing that airflow & PE raped tune I wonder if your meticulous “tooner” was also drunk or just an idiot. Have a nice day.

Oh and btw a bone stock automatic C5 with a supercharger should not run like trash until it warms up. That should have been the first clue that your meticulous tune was trash

This is why nobody goes to j & j speed shop , arrogance , stupidity , and just terrible customer relations . Most people in buffalo would rather drive 60 miles to Rochester ny than to deal with this kind of mentality. It's also why business's close. You'll come crawling back begging for work soon enough.

Lol okay Mark don't worry will post the results when I fix all the meticulous work you had done. I have around a 3-4 month wait right now to get a car in the door (lots of nobodies) and trust me I will never come crawling back begging you for work

Yes, I guess your right Jason .we local car enthusiasts are just nobodies an idiots.You will always have work in buffalo fixing rusted out mufflers and mounting snow tires. Even if this dispute that you started by putting down another hard working car builder costs you one person to build somewhere else , we win.

Mark I will try to make this easy for you to understand. You are the "idiot" and you eluded to the fact that I have no business when I in fact have a 4-5 month wait currently. Which I replied lots of nobodies. The fact is my customers are definitely great people and I am blessed to have them lined up waiting so patiently for quality work. I also think you are missing the fact that I don't DO GENERAL REPAIR. I specialize in high end builds, performance parts & dyno calibration. I do however on occasion mount C7z wheels Michelin Pilot tires for local dealers that don't want to attempt it and trust me 100%

Do you really think this is good p.r for the shop ? Starting a battle with a local car enthusiast who knows hundreds of car people is clearly a mistake. I'll be sure to tell everyone of your stupidity. I guess you must be operating the cars with the garage door closed as the fumes or alcohol have clearly effected you cognitive thinking!!! P.s Now we can understand why your wife left you many years ago , smart move on her part ...
