He said if he had the fuel to GO BACK UP HIS HOUSE so i would assume he payed cash... if paypal even by gift you still have the right to your money back by going to the bank and makinf a chargeback

You should've checked the item before you handed over cash. Play in the turbine is easy to spot, and missing parts etc shouldve been obvious.

If it was delivered however - I assume you payed via PayPal and covered the fees. If you paid by gift you're screwed.

I have never attempted doing a turbo conversion! So few parts missing is actually hard to spot! Yea paid cash! And I did feel the play in the turbo... Was a few mm... But the thing was wen bolted to the car and oil pumping through! After I switched it off it was solid! Jus only wen I drained the oil to take the turbo off the play was bk! But yea pissed off big time! And I never paid by gift belive me I aint a retard haha! Well maybe a bit but yanoo!! Like I said if I had fuel money etc which I haven't coz I'm fukin skiint from paying 800 quid out! I wuold go back there with a few of my boy and pay him a little visit! But yanoo! Anyone got a turbo for me lool?? Am desperate ffs
