As soon as your buddy discovered the engine didnt run right, it should have gone back to the installer, by hook or flatbed. The installer should have told you to bring it in right a way, he is partially responsible for giving bad mechanical advice.
This is true when the mechanic got the call he should have had it towed in to the shop for a look see.
