Angry Paeco

Anyone have any experience with them? I am having a heck of a lot of trouble getting my money back. Who other than Carl Stringfellow (who recently cussed me out and hung up on me) can I talk to?

Worst person(vendor) I have ever dealt with. Worse than Vivid.

Charlie, what's the problem? I've talked to them before (when I was looking at cams) but never bought from them (ended up with Cobb). They seemed very reasonable on the phone but this was 3 years ago. What did you pay for?

Headgasket and studs for an RB20 motor. Both of which they failed miserably on.

You can talk to your credit card company and dispute it.

How'd they fail? Its not like that is a common motor in the states. Did you send them stockers to have upgraded ones made or did they say that they had the specs?

Long drawn-out story and I cannot dispute it anymore, 60 day limit from BofA.

Copper headgasket was a complete failure. Sent in a good condition one that was still on the motor. The one they sent back..it looked like a 6th grader cut it using a cardboard template. Couldn't even fit it over the guides for the bolts. Not to mention it protruded over the cylinder walls.

Head studs... I sent in a stock bolt. First time around they missed the thread size. The shank is smaller in diameter than the threads. They cut it the same size so the stud fell through the threads in the block. Sent them all back, paying shipping myself. Got the next set... the nuts would not fit into the head casting, the nuts were too wide.

I sent them back paying shipping myself again, said I wanted my money back. They said ok, but I would have to call my bank to dispute the charge as Paeco had switched banks and could not refund me my money. I was like W-T F?! So I disputed the charge through BofA. Too bad it had been many months since the original transaction. 60 days is BofA's limit.

I called Paeco and explained the situation. Paeco said to get written confirmation of the 60 day reason from BofA and fax it to them. I did,about a month ago. Been weeks since they said they would mail me a check.

So now I am stuck trying to get my $501 back by phone from a prick of a salesman (Carl Stringfellow).
