This one moron I seen out of town paid for flowmasters and the guy installed glass packs, and the owner didn`t know the difference and I didn`t have the heart to tell him how bad he got took.
In the world today the rule is what you don`t know can hurt you.
Yea I have I'm a little paranoid about paying people to do work on my cars because of some jerk mechanics that took me when I was a kid, Which is a huge reason why I do 99 percent of the work myself but also check any work I have paid for.
Like I said I have had 2 pairs of flowmasters on other cars and they had the name stamped on them.
The funny thing is the guy made a point to tell me they are not cheap knock offs, which instantly raisd a red flag for me.
The funny thing is that I wanted Borlja's and he insisted I go with flows, cause they are cheaper and last longer. I wish I would have just went with the Borjla's
