Interesting you say that as i know Nic and he's a top guy who has tuned a few mates cars with good results, as well as supplying parts to both me and friends without any issues with parts quality, yes you get what you pay for but if it had been a faulty component im sure he would have replaced it, his supplier would honour the waranty too.....As a mechanic having dealt with a lot of race cars over the years and  diognosed several faults regarding potential tuner issues it normally turns out to ne a driver / installer issue that has started the problem, every ones very quick to point fingers at tuners without any hard facts as to why!

Better be careful about your comments because it bordering on slander.     

well ask almost anyone in dunedin about apet and you will get the same answer i take my cars to chch rather pay the extra to get the car right if you were at the local drags down here end of last year start of this year  most of the car were ture by apet all misfireing and soforth frfom what i gess his mates cars go out mint but cash jobs anit done well to get more business


i second what base says hes a nice enough guy but i personly think he isnt a good tuner my mates car got tuned by him and when it blew up he confronted nic as to why it blew uap and he said that the tune was alright but explain to me how it blew up from detination the car was put on a dyno with a gas analyser and it was running 14 points to rich at idle now any tuner would have that number far down his chips thet he uses its a universal chip for what motor is used and not properly tuned to the motor and car

Dear Dayne,

I felt that it was most appropriate if your post was merged into this thread.  It is also pertinent to quote the email that you previously sent me, regarding this thread:

Quote
Hello Kieran,
 
I have a problem when searching the name dsrturbo in google. Each time our name is searched, a post comes up from a member that purchased a Turbo from us years a go. he fell out with us, posting the  same exact post on over half a dozen forums.
 
I want to know if I could sponsor your forum and a mount of money. Would you remove it from your forum for us? This would help us a lot
 
Thank you,
 
Dayne Johnston
 
 
Cheers

I chose not to reply to your email, but here and now is the most appropriate place & time to respond.  You clearly sold Geoff (gtircrazy) a product that was not fit for the intended purpose - it was less efficient than the OEM T28 that it replaced.  You then asked me to silence the objective, neutral feedback that Geoff chose to post here, offering a cash bribe in exchange for this censorship.

With Kiwicon, you now have another customer who has a defective product, but you have no intention of correcting that defect, do you?  It is clear to many of us that you choose not to take in constructive criticism from your customers, and use it to create a better product - but you instead choose to try to shut this criticism down.  That is a recipe for a doomed business.


Regards

Kieran

Im not sure of the quality of these turbos, they sure saound good(As most thing people are trying to sell do) but what i do know is people of OffRoadExpress forums have had real good things to say about DSR turbos when fitting to safari's etc.  But I think if he is selling turbos that arnt working as they should, the customer should get a refund.

I can offer advice on the consumer guarantees act, the fair trading act, the disputes tribunal and the commerce commission if anyone needs it. I've just spent the last couple months up to my ears in legislation and phone calls dealing with an issue between Dick Smith and myself.

It does not matter if I am an administrator, forem member, or someone having a look on this site..

I was waiting for you to post in here.. funny you didnt write the three comments prior to what you quoted, like it sounds like water is dripping into the turbo like water into a hot frying pan.. but the car is off when it crackles, so no water is going thru it, so must be a defective turbo from day 1, to which you basicly replied 'oh well, s**t happens', then deleted all my comments and blacklisted me.. well atleast 1 good thing came out of it... GT28RS for 1600 delivered, sweet. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=368703135

oh and keep replying in here, helps to keep it at the top of google search engine

You come on here and bag our admins and our forums when you cant even support your product or look after your clients?

Geoff came on here and gave an accurate account of what happened to him when he used your product and then the way you treated him once he started having issues, you made yourself look bad - not his posts.

To say he made up user names on lots of forums just to say something bad about you is ridiculous. Many members on her are part of many clubs and will often repost things on lots of forums; good or bad.

Your continued posts are just making yourself look even worse, even if your product is now better or does go well on other vehicles none of us care, your lack of customer service and the way you talk to people makes yourself and your company look stupid and no one wants to deal with people who act in this way.

We as a committee decided not to remove this thread and we stand by this; your cash bribes dont sway us one bit and the more you reply to this thread the more it puts it out there.

just to let everyone know DSR don't have a very good reputation on http://nissansilvia.co.nz/ either...

and here's a statement made by Dimaat about his experience with DSR turbos...

"Sheep follow, not protect FYI. Likewise, I really don't care what you say about me, on various occasions you have displayed your PR skills (or lack of) so I'm not worried. Like I have said before, I wouldn't be advising people to look into other options had I not had a bad experience with the DSR turbos. I would have liked to have known why both my DSR turbos failed within 6 months (one at around 5 and one at 3 months). I was running 12psi at the most as it was on a +t engine hence I couldn't have been running more. But the fact of the matter was that both the turbos failed in the same way. They had both blown rear seals, both had f**ked bearings and both had the compressor wheel running on the front housing. Water cooling was used. This happened back in the time of when you were claiming that you have had ZERO failed turbos. The other thing I found interesting in my experience is that I actually lost 25hp from going from a t28 to a (bigger!!) 380 whilst keeping the same 12psi boost level."

Yet to threaten us with exactly what you have done here Shame on you. You would not be role model to myself or many others on your Trademe account or your fellow NZ primera Club with this kind of action.

A website admin doesn't need to be a role model, however a business selling goods to the public does need to meet its obligations under law with regards to those sales.


And the guy that created this post years a year or to go....... Like previously mentioned. This guy made this exact same post on every single forum he could find online by creating a new user name and creating the exact same post.

The "creating a new user name on every single forum he could find online" is incorrect.  This person is well known and respected amongst our Auckland club members, as is the tuner who tuned his car.  Both have been deeply involved in the car scene for many years, including the online community.  If you've got a valid, important message to spread, why not?


All because he bought a dsr380 Turbocharger and did not get 270 odd kw out his gtir  ( Like I claimed in my listings it could produce ) .
The 270 KW + was made by user name Chevelle or dimaat from the fantastic forum http://nissansilvia.co.nz/ He had all supporting mods.

Why did you claim it if it couldn't be achieved?  Show us the dyno chart to prove us wrong - including the correction factor.  This is difficult to believe as the DSR380 has been found to not produce over 15psi, even with the wastegate line disconnected.  The quote from Dimaat on NissanSilvia.co.nz above supports that.
[/quote]


Also may I add. Rolling road dynos and Dyna Packs read totally different. Not to mention if you have two identical engines, same turbos. Maybe a different intercooler of silicone joiner is not sealing or exhaust. Just the smallest difference  ( ignition timing / tuner ) to the other engine. They can read a huge difference on the dyno machine to another.

They can differ, but not by a "huge" amount as you claim.  Take the ST HiTec Dynapack and the Torque Performance rolling road - the TP dyno reads 8% less than ST's.  There are dynos up north and in the Waikato region that do tend to read much higher, producing a false power reading.


Also while I am at it. We here at dsrturbo have a 5% OFF offer for a lot of our K&N Filters, fuel pumps, tomei regs etc and arp bolts. Valid through to the 15th April 2011. It's not a lot but it does help :)

And yet kiwicon is the site admin for NZ Primera.

Your feed back reinforces us that you are not such a nice guy http://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Feedback.aspx?member=123017 to deal with recently.

I found that out for myself when you started asking my people and I about turbo a turbo on our dsrturbo trademe account http://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Listings.aspx?member=2956914

Just a quick search for Trademe nissan / dsr 380
