Dimitris:

Since you asked the question about the muffler thread being closed in your "What Happened" post, I think you deserve an answer. I will make this quick, as this post will also be shut down in a hurry. . .

Basically, it is alleged that the person associated with that muffler is Paul Mecha, a person of questionable character and banned by Mark Ryder some time ago for scamming a lot of people on numerous products on this forum. There is a long and ugly history associated with this name, and a search will probably yield all the nasty details, unless the posts have been deleted.

The best advice anyone could give you is to run the other way and do NOT get involved with this person, no matter how tempting the muffler may look. Good luck with your endeavors.

Excalibur,

thank you for the warning!

Truth is it looks VERY tempting all polished and shinny in the photos, but I have been warned by others too - over PM and email - not to trust this guy.

One of those that tried to protect me is Chris Bergen himself! He informed me that Zimmermann makes a header for the infamous rear muffler, tailored specifically to the Intrepid and that's what I'll propably go for.

Cheers,
Dimitris

I am just wondering... if this guy is so eager to promote his merchantise, why doesn't he do it the right way and buy a banner or something on this forum? How much does it cost?

If that was/is Paul Macha (as was my immediate thought) then he's a thief and a liar. Purchasing advertising would be against his nature. I think the reason he landed on the name 'gasser man' was as a result of trying to steal Tom Fiddler's business of producing the stator gator. He called it the gasser gator.

Yes, I did and this guy even made it look like he was wanting to know if I ever heard of it before and added a link to the product. Very sly, but I had already been reading about this scammer (called himself Mike English). See below:
Can you tell me what is this exhaust I have never seen it before ?
Thanks Mike

Just another crappy day in Paradise....Aloha!
