Now, have I been perfect? No. I was late by a month giving Ryan $200 for shipping. He complained about the credit card fees he was racking up but come to think about it that doesn't really make sense to me considering I had just given him an $500 towards my initial down payment and shipping was only $400. I was also late one month starting my first payment after the engine was shipped. It's also a fact that I paid him 3x what I was obligated to for the next two months to make up for my initial lateness. It's also a fact that since then I have remained ahead of schedule with 96% of the engine paid as of March '13. Considering all that and that the engine is blown, I dont think answering my phone calls and having a respectful adult conversation and sharing some info about the engine which just put me potentially a few thousand dollars down the toilet is too much to ask for!
Simply put, while I would not go so far as to claim that Ryan (Akora) sold me a bad engine knowingly, the fact that he has been extremely unreasonable, his crappy unhelpful attitude over petty and false reasons, misquoting me what I owe him by hundreds of dollars, questionable reasons for suddenly parting out his car, and refusal to give me any additional information regarding my purchase does not inspire confidence in me that Ryan conducted a fair trade with any sense of honesty. Regardless, even if Ryan was being honest in his trade, his attitude since then has been nothing but unreasonable, unhelpful, offensive, frustrating, and worst of all — damaging to my project's success.
