Primary Complaint Classification: Refund Practices
Secondary Complaint Classification: Guarantee or Warranty Issues
i bought this supercharger/throttlebody package for $775.the performance gains was dramaticlly over stated. also i was sent a 94-95 unit and was told it would work, i installed it and my car wouldnt idle at all. i ended up putting my old throttlebody back on the car. he was to port and polish it too but never polished it. he told me to go ahead and finish it if i wanted to. as part of a refund, he gave me a new airfilter, a smaller pulley for the supercharger, and $75. he then told me that when he got my cores back, he would refund me another $100 and he was to send me a warr. for the supercharger because it was advertised to have a 1 year warr.
i sent it back to him and he got it on march 14,2003. he told me that he was going to send out my refund. now he tells me on march 18,2003, that when he got it back, an ear was broken off of it , which it wasnt when it was shipped, and he wasnt refunding me anything and since i polished it and added the smaller pulley he sent me, i voided my warr and had none at all now. he told me to finish polishing the supercharger because he didnt have the equipment there at the time to do it and he sent me the smaller pulley knowing that i was going to put it on my car and said nothing about voiding my warr. i have heard of several people having problems with him about his customer service and business actions. he also wanted me to send him performance results of the parts i added to my car.
please help me.

Our newest member is Mark Peters. Same name as the Floz owner. Our member claims to be a Pontiac Dealership from Sacramento, so I hope it'* true. I'd hate to have the Floz Mark Peters around here stirring things up so soon after Jeffrey filed a complaint against him. Be on the lookout just in case.

I swear you are now fully integrated with this board man.... Anyways, here we go guys.
This is the IP that Mark Peters is. He lied of course, says
CustName: Comcast Cable Communications, Inc.
Address: 3 Executive Campus
Address: 5th Floor
City: Cherry Hill
NetRange: 126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52
So he is from NJ, so it is the FLOZ guy, ah wonderful IP'* and people who dont know about them. Isn't the internet a magical place?

This guy made a second name Joe Perker. Time to bust him..... and it'* all good, I got the ****. Falling asleep here on me boys!
Observe the take-down here:
And here is the owner of Floz acting like a satisfied customer of his own business (dirty nasty tactics) and the second resulting take-down:
The topics go on and on. Not just here, but on www.clubgp.com
FOR THE RECORD:
The information on www.williamwren.com/floz.html
is information I personally gathered from complaintants. Only ONE of the complaintants in that article is listed in this topic (Jeffrey Hahn). The others either did not post, or posted on other Forums, but contacted me directly. In addition, we have two other victims on this forum that have not posted, as they didn't want to scare him into changing his eBay ID again.
As long as he didn't change his identity (for the 4th time that I'm aware of) we could keep an eye on him.
Part of the task the NON-OWNER Administrators (Jim, Don, and Myself) take on here on this Forum is to insure that our members get a fair shake from the Vendors. Call us the watchdogs if you will.
For those that doubt the link between the FLOZ issues and this currently identified eBay seller, there may be no proof, so I can't conclusively determine for anyone if he is indeed Mark Peters, however he responded to my eBay contact by immediately locating Jwikoff'* topic (this topic) BEFORE responding to me via email.
My opinion on this matter is to stay very far away. If you want a rebuilt supercharger, our vendor of preference is www.canadiansupercharger.com
or you might also choose to purchase a used but non-rebuilt unit from a PRIVATE seller via eBay, then rebuild yourself as I do (for about $100 additional for bearings, gaskets, oil, and coupler).
Questions of Libel and Slander aren't an issue here. This topic is an opinion expressed by many members of this Forum.
And the seller of this item on eBay, despite his long history with these fine devices even got this wrong:
Important we use ONLY GM Supercharger oil. This oil is a clear synthetic oil made specifically for your supercharger.
Ummmm.....it'* quite organic. It'* made of animal fats. In fact, the only two ingredients are Fatty Acids and Phosphoric Acid.
