What if the customer insists on the wrong way to do something? What do you do then?

I guess you missed my point!!

If I give you 30K to build me a nice motor to make say 1400 HP N/A.. that would be cool of you to build one for me..

If I give you 10K and ask you to build me a 1400 HP N/A motor and you do it.. Shame on you!!

The builder should not be able to use the excuse of "he didn't give me enough money to build him a reliable 1400 HP motor..

This was a bitch move because the ACTUAL OWNER of said engine didnt post this! It has been stated many times that you didnt have any money to pay for the motor.
1. Is this true? If so, was he supposed to give you the motor and you pay him out while you sprayed the ballz off it? This DOES NOT excuse the fact that there was mistakes made but does not discredit you not paying the man.

2. Sounds like you guys are capable of building engines yourselves, with that being said. Why didnt you pick the motor up after 6 months and nothing getting done. This is another reason i build my own stuff. I only have to wait for my machinist to do the work. The guy im using does good work and gets stuff done faster then i need it.

3. Monte has stated several times that he offered to fix everything and including Dynoing the engine, which you didnt originally pay for. Why didnt you let him fix it? Yes he is a busy man with a busy business. You cannot expect him to fix it imediatll. But i think a week he better know whats wrong and parts on the way atleast. IMHO you shouldve taken it back and make him fix it. Obviously after this you will not be back/allowed back so i believe he will fix it in the way that its going to be right so that he doesnt have to see you again.

I understand the OWNER of the Engine pain, this plain sucks!!! BUT, this post is kinda a Bitch Move!

The other thing you have to think is, that all these other engine builders are reading this, and seeing what you do and your buddy do when stuff goes wrong. Dont be supprised if people are to busy to fix or build your engines in the future. Just sayin...

ahhhh.... You snuk reliable in there.

I don't build engines, but I do get 'bonsai' requests or 'just need to finish the race', or 'the season'. Or 'I'm 0.1. From the record......lets push it or die trying'. You damn right. Its not my place to say no in a society fixated on individual freedom.

So if you don't need him, why did he get it in the first place? A sticker and some contingency perhaps?

That wouldn't make any sense.. The stickers are probably free and they already had Montes system on the car.. so there was no need to send the motor out for that...
