    I look forward to the day that you prove me wrong with this Holset turbo on your T4 but I think it is a long way off.
    Well it's being done as funds permit but I have most of the bits now. If it doesn't work I will let everyone know and find a different size Holset. They are very cheap in comparison to the Garretts. Fruits of my research are far more than that Hamish why be such an about it. I have researched you as well, most of my fruits were that you are a rude and have even threatened people in the past. My research was confirmed correct in a 20 second phone call.

    I put the phone down because I felt I was going to start arguing with Hamish. He obviuosly knows nothing about the turbo I'm fitting to my car so why say it won't work. Why not say

    ''sorry Mitch, I have no experience with these turbos so I will not be able to help but I'm interested to know how you get on so let me know''.

    From what I've read he generally seems not be the type of person who is a natural at talking to members of the public in a polite, courteous manner. He might be a nice guy, I don't know, but just comes across as an arrogant know it all.

    you jumping straight on to a forum and slagging us off by saying 'disappointed with HLM' shows what sort of customer you would be and we were right to say no to you.

    It only confirms what I've already discussed with many Volvo enthusiasts. I'm not a bad customer to anyone. I just like to be treated with respect and not to be belittled by someone.

    ''It won't work on a petrol''

    ''It has been done in the past on loads of petrol cars see you tube vids for an example, loads of Jap Civics running Holsets''

    ''it won't work''

    What am I supposed to do, start arguing with a guy who obviously is not listening to what I'm saying and not prepared to listen to me.

    Sounds like a plan. From previous threads about Hamish, seems he lets himself down by his arrogance.

    And do you think you showed us any respect? I don't think so. You phoned, asked an opinion, you didn't like the answer, you slammed down the phone and then posted a thread slagging off our business.

    I feel very sorry for the garage that agrees to do this work for you because if it ever gets there, which I doubt, I can gurantee it will end up in a sea of 'sh&t' because you are just that type of person.
