    SyndicateGT motor failure - Shiv/Vishnu threatening to sue, bullying? Just a joke?

    Hi guys,

    More info to come. Here's a photo of my rod bearing. It was originally though it was spun, however, after dropping the oil pan there was no real damage to it. The bearing itself was worn somewhat and there was a little bit of play with the rod, but I'm willing to bet the other 5 bearings look the same. They are made a cheap aluminum so possibly an upgraded forged/steel version might be needed for these big HP engines.

    I don't have "sufficient" rep to post the direct photo, here's the link. Maybe someone can post a direct shot of it.

    Good thing you can type with your mouth closed. Unless you signed a non-disclosure agreement you freely can state any facts you wish.

    Before too much mis-information gets tossed around on here (and the other forum for that matter). I'm keeping quiet for a while longer as Shiv threatened to sue me if I opened my mouth. More to come in a few days.....but it's definately not a rod bearing at the moment.
    seems like a troll.. probably shiv himself..

    Yea because Shiv has time to have over 3,000 post on the other forum Click here to enlarge I do brows a lot on here, just needed to clarify things before it got out of hand. NDA's are such a fun thing to deal with (biting my tongue).

    right, the username is common, but just now signing up suspect.. not a far stretch for a pro-shiv or the shiv to make such a post for amusement purposes only

    Check my join date buddy, same as yours Click here to enlarge Same goes with N54 tech and e90post. No worth arguing who's who...pointless. As for pro anyone, I've never been a "fanboi" all my reviews are pretty much unbiased (those that know me on here realize that).

    It's a horrible situation, I wouldn't wish it upon anyone. Made me stick to my stomach. All I'm concerned about now is either fixing the car and selling it, or finding someone willing to buy as is and fix it themselves. Luckily for me, we have a great community and people are willing to help out. All beans will be spilled soon enough, still trying to figure things out 100%. Updates soon to come.

    Sue you? I can't believe that honestly but nothing surprises me from there anymore...i'd sue him back so fast his lawyer wouldn't know how to spell objection...fuuuuuck, that really pissed me off...WTF!!!!!

    What a guy Shiv is, one of his customers blows a motor and he threatens to sue him. I can't imagine what will happen to him if and when all those single turbo guinea pigs start popping motors. He can't threaten to sue all of them.

    Man, honestly, I won't feel sorry for those guys on e90post after having been given so much opportunity to realize who the man behind it all is...forget about the bull$#@! videos and fake giggles, end of the day, you have to deal with the PERSON that he is, and that person will go the length to TELL someone they'll sue them if they blame them on the forums for a motor failure! He's just pure scum...so glad i'm not running that $#@! any more honestly, even if my motor blew up fully stock tomorrow...I still can't believe he said that, just wow

    Sorry for a dumb question, but I didn't see the answer on BB anywhere:

    SyndicateGT - can you tell us a bit about your car? Year, mods, etc?

    Thanks,
    rich

    Funny how shiv is so quick to come in here trolling as Robert or otherwise when we talk about fueling or his single turbo but is awfully quiet when this news comes about.

    SyndicateGT,

    There are clever ways of sharing information without violating NDAs. You could perhaps write a DIY of some sort Click here to enlarge ...or perhaps your shop mechanic can post pictures...
    From all the things I've lost,
    I miss my mind the most!

    What? Does a tuner require a customer to sign NDAs?!? Huh, that is unheard of.

    Just got off the phone with our good friend (Shiv). After seeing this post, I had a 10 min phone conversation and was verbally abused for about 8 min of it. I think bodily hard was even threatened lol

    Wow customer blows his motor and he physically threatens you. Is JPslick rubbing off on him?

    I wish you recorded that conversation! Get him arrested for something like that.
