hi guys & girls

we had some problems with a guy from hungary who sell us a fu*ked RB26! he told us, the engine run only 500 kilometers without boost, engine was build by a expert in hungary and the parts inside are only the best (tomei, eagel & co).

because of the bad faith, we decide to strip the engine to look inside... nobody want to risk something building a 600+ hp engine. we saw the truth, that nothing was ok...

- one rod was already purple coloured (heat problems?)
- every piston had massive scraches at the sides (cyl also)
- pistons are made by ROSS and not Tomei
- some bearings was custom made by the "expert"

the hole engine (end + head) has scraches everywhere you can see.. we suppose that he had problems with the oil supply. the engine is rubbish and over 3000 € are gone :mad:

however after many calls and mails we compromise that he buy back the pistons + rods for 410€ (eBay auction). now he try to sell the kit on eBay (here) and want to deceive the next... dont wonder about the item location, he is a hungarian and he only work in austria!

and the best at the end... he try to reclaim the 410€ from paypal :bash:

please guys, dont give him a chance to to take the piss out of somebody.. he lies like a pro.. I wonder that he dont work as an politician :rolleyes:

cheers

He has a 100% ebay feed back (only 12 sales though). Did you buy the engine from him on ebay and if so why didn't you leave some negative feedback on the transaction ? Looks like you left him some positive feedback while thanking him for buying back the dodgy parts. Maybe this was part of the deal you struck with him so he would buy the parts back :dunno:

the engine was advertised on ebay... but I came to late. we decide to go on without ebay and after picup in hungary he deleted his account on ebay (this is his new one).

the deal with the pistons and rods is the result of many phone calls and emails many month after the engine deal. if you verify the purchase date of the first piston&rods auction, the second auction and the date of my feedback... you would see that I only wanted to set a sign for futured buyers. they can see that the pistons and rods are NOT new like he wrote!

they are used and cracked... thats ony what I wanted to say.

I see it has twenty days to run so it might be worth in 19 days checking to see if anyone is bidding for them and if they are send them a message warning them off.

yes, it was this engine! but the price was 2000 euro and not pounds... Ive lost another 1000€ with checking pistons, rods and crank by a real expert here in berlin.. picup in hungary and a another visit in hungary...

to much money for a load of bullsh*t :mad:
