Shiv is a great guy to deal with. I didn't bother reading the other thread, but I'll tell you I've never had ANY issues whatsoever with him.

He listened to me giggle like a school girl on the phone after my first ride in my car after installing an early ecutek retune.
He took the time to drive my car after he had tuned it in CT and verified that, yes, i was teh suck at making sure my uppipe didn't leak. (he drives like a madman btw... quite fun )

There are plenty of dealers around who are shady to deal with, but he's not one of them imho.

I saw a post on another site and it link to their post.

Again, I'd like to reiterate, As some changes have been made. For all that don't take it seriously, then feel free to contact me personally.

Ok heres the deal so listen up. Some of you already know what has gone on here in the past week, some of you are just seeing this for the first time. Well this goes out to everyone. I'll give you a little information on who we are. Which I still leave up the disclaimer posted by one of our other moderators. In following.

Quote:

*Disclaimer* If you're coming from another board to read this thread, that's fine. Don't expect to understand much of what goes on with this board, however, because it's run by a small group of NWDSM'rs who are all close friends and share many inside jokes that you probably won't understand. 95% of this board is used for our fun and to keep in touch since we live all over the NW. The other 5% is for tech stuff, so you won't find too much of that here. There are plenty of other sites for that.
Who am I you say? I am Matthew Poppoff, I just want to get this out in the clear about something for me personally. Anything I've stated about Shiv or his corporation in general has been a personal opinion, Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, this thread directing my perspective at one of them. I still stand by the 1st amendment when saying this. Nothing I have ever said in the past nor through the present can be considered factual information. Take what you want from it. We all know we do it. I am saying this at my own personal will just because I know this has gotten out of hand. I have not had the time over the past 3 days (where the views on this thread have tripled) to comprehend all of the information of everything going on. I myself would have made an effort to correct the issue given more time. As far as what I think about Vishnu Tuning as a business is completely personal, I do not recomend to stay away from them, nor do I recomend to take your business to them. The feeling is completely nuetural. I am not a Vishnu customer myself, Nor have I ever been in a personal situation with Vishnu. This being said I hope that others will understand posts maybe I have made in the past cannot be referenced to factual information due to us not knowing "the real shiv"

As far as whats going on considering the folks that may have seen this thread already, maybe this will clear it up a bit. The member "shiv@vishnu" Registered on our board on it looks like the 30th of September, Under the email address "blah@blah.com" Obviously not a valid email address, but The administration here at POSDSM do not require you to have a valid Email address to register on our board. That member named registered under an IP of "224.167.169.15" which i did an IP lookup myself on the location check with the results of "4676 Admirality Way Suite 330, del Rey, CA 90292" Honestly whoever that remains to be, will not be seeing our board again, as i have banned the whole IP range. Now the REAL "shiv" which registered on our board looks like on the 1st of october. I banned imeediately as the looks like it was an imposter from another board, Not looking into it very much, but I came out to see that it was actually Shiv as I tracked his IP to his current location in california, And noticed he registered with a valid email address. And I have talked personally with Shiv veryifying it's validity.

With all of this being said, Us here at POSDSM does not condone any type of conversation validity on anything that has been posted here reguarding Shiv, we have no way of Identifying any truth in any of the posts that were made in this thread. Nor do we condone any for the future. What was once posted on here is done and done, Whats said has been said but as far as your knowledge is concerned, none of the information that was in this thread was valid or confirmed exept for the fact that we know it was not the real Shiv. As far as the beginning conflict, My understanding from Shiv is that they are in contact with the certain member that had problems with his exhaust and are/or actively seeking a resolution.

This all being said, I would like to extend my personal opologies to Shiv And his company for any remarks (I) or anyone from my site have made towards him in a personal way, or in a business matter. We did not make it a point to go out of our way to attack Shiv on a personal level, We simply thought that Given "This imposters" Statements that others would be concerned, Now knowing that it is an imposter, any statements we have made towards Shiv or VishnuTuning are completely Null and Void as of lack of matter upon our case. The imposter being the case. We are certainly sorry for the inconveinence this has caused anyone, and this statement was done completely and fully at our/my own free will.

Sincerely
-The site Administration

It's true, they went way...way beyond street legal, they made too much horsepower. The FCC, SEC, and NAFTA are now on their back big time. Wish them luck.

Why couldn't VISHNU just come back and say that the cars they are building are for track use only. What our customers do with the cars is thier business.

It's like shutting down a gun shop because someone that bought a gun there, commited a crime with it. Hell, in that case, they need to shut down every liquor store and every place that sells cigarettes since they kill people too.

Narrator: A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one.
Business woman on plane: Are there a lot of these kinds of accidents?
Narrator: You wouldn't believe.
Business woman on plane: Which car company do you work for?
Narrator: A major one.

Narrator: On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.

I'm kinda curious on what law was broken?

Your allowed to mod a car beyond street legality. You arent allowed to drive a car thats not street legal on the street. But since they dont do that, well maybe their personal vehicles what did they do?

They probably put a catless setup on a customers car and something happened to the customer so they called the police...

My hands ache from making soap and explosives all day, so the CIA and FBI are watching me too.
