« on: January 10, 2013, 09:21:53 PM »
I have a very clean 07 Z51 Corvette and it was making some noise in the front suspension.I have a chevy Dealer not to far from my house so I took it to them to check it out.After a day and they had to keep it over night. The next morning they told me I needed a front spring and bushings now these thing's are composit and very expensive!! They told me it would cost 1200.00 on top of the 600.00 I already paid.needless to say I said I don't think so.I called Mike at TPS and asked him if he had one and he said he had a used one and could do the job for 500.00. When I got there they went right to work and come to find out it was not the spring or the bushings just a simple adjusting bolt needed to be replaced, they had one and put it on for a 100.00 bucks!!! Mike saved me a Ton of money and time. Thank's to Mike and his Crew the Dealer didn't Rip me off!!! Thanks Guy's!!!!

Thanks for the props every one.  We've made some major changes in staff that is working out very well for us.  Our new LS tuner used to work for Stillen Motorsports and did the majority of the tuning for all their Nissan and GM vehicles.

As far as us grenading motors.. that's definitely false.  I would GLADLY openly reply to any comments about that.  There is always 2 sides of every story.  If there was any problems we have always take care of the customers.

No problem Mike. Still happy with my tune. My wide band is right where it needs to be on idle and WOT and improved MPG. Hit me up on a price for the PFADT Motor/Tranny mounts so I can start embezzling money out of my checking account.  :&

Agreed ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ whenever something has happened in the past be it big or small Mike has always stood behind his work and done anything to correct whether it was their responsibility or not..

And yes there is always two sides to every story.. LOL  I know of even the best shops in the industry that have had problems as well... It's not whether you have a problem or not it's how you stand behind it that matters

Reminds me of a certain Vendor that left me high and dry for a $20,000.00 dollar motor ..... LOL   

On a better note it appears as though TPS has got things headed in the right direction and that is good news for everyone...

Unfortunately there has been instances where things have happened and we were blamed for it whether it was our fault or not.  Only thing we can do is do the best job that we can and stand behind our work. BUT we cannot control how a customer drives the vehicle afterwards and how much wear and tear the car had before mods were installed.  Just because we work on a car doesn't mean it has a life time warranty on the entire car that TPS is liable for.

Like I said there are always 2 sides to every story.  Some people know both sides and they would vouch for our side.  I'm sure we made mistakes which were our fault as we're not perfect but if we're made aware of it we would gladly fix the problems.
