ROUND LAKE PARK, ILLINOIS -- I will try to make this short and to the point. The owner of MPRacing.org is a lying, worthless, and selfish business owner. I bought a used custom-built 3.4L turboed motor from him for $3,000 that was in his Alero. I sent him the money in Feb and it is now August and I still don't have all my parts. He said it would be a complete drop in motor that only had about 20,000 miles on it. I received a short block motor that the valve covers, upper and lower intake manifolds, throttle body that were all missing off the motor.
When it arrived, it had rags draped over the heads with racket straps holding to motor on the half-ass pallet that was not even enclosed. I called him about it when it arrived and he said that the freight company must have stolen them off the motor in shipping. So I torn the motor down to inspect it before I started to reassembling it with the missing parts from my old motor, to find that the pistons and rings are burned up the rod bearings are all shot and the pistons are washed because the motor was burning oil. In other word I have a $250 core exchange for a motor.
I tried to get a hold of him for a month before he emails me and states he was in a car accident and broke his phone. I'm sorry but if I had someone else's money and property, I would be in touch with them a little quicker to let them now what is going on. He also denies everything saying that I damaged the motor by tearing it apart and that he was not going to give me a refund.
Long story short, it is now August and I still do not have my turbo, intercooler, tuned PCM, fuel injectors, front strut brace, cat converter, clear corner lights, and a bunch of misc. stuff for the motor. I have all the emails and attempted phone calls to this jerk and I have tried to be nice, but it has been long enough. If anyone is ever thinking of buying anything from MPRacing.org, DO ME A FAVOR AND TURN AND RUN AWAY!!! IT IS NOT WORTH THE HEADACHE!!!
