Wow just wow.. a generation of idiots
Here's the deal----I am happy and Scott is happy. I got what I wanted and he is able to pay overhead, make a living and help out folks like me that can't any longer do the work myself. Free enterprise is what they call it. This is why the liberals hate Trump----success.

But this isnt a Viper Tech LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL


There is no argument here at all. I'm not trying to prove any point. I wanted to see what he paid for what he had done. I figured it was going to be high.

If shorty cannot physically do the work himself, that's understandable. Completely understandable. Gotta pay to play.

But.

That is pretty steep in anybodys book. None of the work that was done was anything of specialty except if the the A/C system was evacuated and recharged properly, by a certified tech, but it doesnt even sound like it. Just threw in more refrigerant.

It is a very accurate price list for what any jo smo could go down to napa and get parts for. Lol. I'm sure you have no idea what this is like considering you paid the viper tax on everything.

but go ahead try to justify $1000 dollars in "labor" and overhead for not even 8 hours work.

Just for a reference, On the work I do, 8 hours labor would be over $1500. With a two hour minimum to show up.

GE would charge double that!

Cheers!

I get it but still, this is basic automotive work that probably took 5~hours.

Also, shorty took his vehicle there, not making a road call...

I will not go into it as the list is rather extensive. When I dropped the chip off the piston Scott spent more than 50 hours on the work and I paid him parts and labor $3500. The extra things he has done when I brought the truck to Waco over the last 5 years is as long as my arm. He installed a tq from a bad guy in Arizona that trashed my transmission. Scott paid for the rebuild from another shop. My trust in his ability equal to my trust in his honesty.

Remember, you can hear anything you want on the net and most of the guys complaining about him do not have it first hand, just old lady gossip. I am please with what I got and will go back for the engine build when it is time.

I paid a viper tax? so when i bought a truck that had 80k in mods for 30k and sold my original truck retuned to stock for 20k, getting me 80k in mods already installed on the truck with 8k in extras that came with the truck that were sold off along with selling my original mods, which brought me out to a 2k profit after the deal was done.. I paid a viper tax... wow... if thats tax ill pay it every day of the week.. sign me up....

#1 - The work you had done did NOT require the services of a Viper Tech. Any repair shop can do general auto repair.

#2 - The Hoople you used is NOT a Viper Tech anyway. His self title of Dr. Viper is just that.

#3 - You posted this knowing full well you'd get called out for giving this nitwit any kind of praise.

#4 - A fool and his money are soon parted.
