WARNING: IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT YOU READ AT DISCUSSION FORUMS:

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

 I'd like to bring to your attention that there are a many web discussion forums on Diesels some which mainly have an interest in GM Diesels, it has been my experience (and that of others) that a couple of those forums geared to GM diesels are run unethically and dishonestly. They either sell products themselves or promote those of their friends or "advertisers" and do so in ways that can be misleading.

 One diesel discussion forum that is based around GM diesels, I know for a fact (by the owners own admission) that they have received free products and require advertising commitments (often long term) to do so-called product "reviews" or "feature" articles or editorial write ups. We find that to be most dishonest and unethical.
 To make matters worse they are not too forthcoming with their readers about it, and worse still those reader's pay for a membership there, and often do not know any of that. So most unsuspecting people would think they are getting unbiased and honest information, however in essence the readers (paying member's) are paying to read advertisements that read as articles and reviews. Again, we find that to be most dishonest and unethical.

 The one site even has paying advertisers yet still charges a membership! I don't know about you, but I have a problem with paying to read advertisements, especially when presented in a different format than a regular ad. In fact I wonder about the legality of advertisements presented as articles, the ones in magazines like that at least usually have some fine print saying "advertisement".

 If all that's not bad enough,  these forum usually prohibit links to other products, especially ones they fear are competitive and in most cases better, they limit who can be a member and it appears decide arbitrarily as to what cannot be discussed in the forum, they even set their forum software to automatically edit **** some suppliers or manufacturers names.

 They have even banned paying members who simply do not share their views. The private message and/or email address features of the forum software is turned off in what seems to be a deliberate attempt to discourage member interaction so they "control" the info members have access to. Again members pay but are denied certain relevant information or access to other information

 I find it odd that it seems only one of their "advertisers" posts in their forum, doesn't that make you wonder why the others can't?

 At some of these forums, I have often read what appears to be false "testimonials" and others where entire threads appear to be staged to sell products (mainly for that one "advertiser") or make them appear to be good, or that more people have them than actually do, or they twist facts to mislead, or they slander/libel the better products of others and make false statements and imply problems or concerns that simply do not exist with the better products, . The 'rip-off artist' also copies product ideas and/or designs and then tries to sell them at a higher price, which certainly does NOT mean better product as he'd like to have you think, and when asked or challenged to back up his claims that character retreats. 

 After badmouthing our remote harness many times and saying it could not work, and advising against it, the hypocrite later copied and now sells a knock-off harness, and for more money.

 I've noticed often when someone writes in and says anything not to their liking the same characters seem to come out on the attack to push that person out and it also seems some of those persons use false names or 'aliases' to make themselves appear as different people, even to the point where they ask a question and then answer it, or pat themselves on their own back! The aliases appear to be used to influence the topic to mislead to make their limited view appear to be that of a majority and/or to influence the reader in to making a purchase. I've even noted the forum site administrators, webmasters and/or moderators at their site or elsewhere, making false and slanderous statements or bad-mouthing regarding other people or products 

 When customers of theirs have posted on the forums about a problem with one of their faulty products, or that they do not live up to the claims, I have noticed posts are often edited, deleted and often that person is scolded, suspended or permanently banned from the discussion group, that has also occurred to persons who have merely mentioned better products. 

 Most of the diesel web discussion forums are owned, run or at the very least controlled, swayed or influenced in some way by those selling products, so often you cannot believe what you read.

 The point I am making is to remember "caveat emptor" = "let the buyer beware", or in the case of forums "let the reader beware". Take what you read on the internet with a grain of salt, ands consider where it is coming from. Especially the testimonials and referrals. It is very easy in discussion forums for dishonest persons to use aliases as mentioned before and for the webmasters/administrators/moderator titles of those forums it is even easier because they control their forums and what you read there. It is a shame there are dishonest and unethical people who try to take advantage of, cheat, mislead or try to harm others.  In my 25+ years in this industry I have never seen such dishonesty or misleading BS as I have seen by those who operate those forums I refer to.

 My advice to those seeking information is that you seek out all other sources for information you can on what you want to know and find what you feel is the most reliable information to make the best informed decisions you can.


Some of the things being promoted and sold to look out for are;
1) Fan Clutch that comes on earlier; this will take away engine power and reduce mpg. Priced at $250.00 (with supposed discount) it is priced far over and above GM list replacement cost of $99.56, IMHO it's a rip-off. Besides you can make the stock fan come on earlier by simply adjusting the thermostatic spring on it.

2) Gear-Drive Timing Set; removes the cushioning effect the stock chain set has and can possibly result in improper harmonics and stresses that can lead to harmonic balancer / torsional damper failure and lead to severe engine damage.

3) Intercooler; this mounts in a terrible location where the GM optional skid-plate mounts, the thought of putting a $1,400.00 part in harms way is well...  and don't forget  turbo-lag, loosening pipes, and intense installation.

4) Low compression pistons; even when rebuilding are usually not worth the expense, lowering compression will likely reduce power output. Very overpriced compared to normal replacement pistons.

5) Foam Air Filter; the tiny crevices in the foam will tend to plug up to where proper cleaning will eventually be impossible, and worse yet they can deteriorate rapidly, if I had only to choose between a stock paper filter or foam, I'd take paper every time, but thankfully there are oil impregnated cotton gauze filters.

5) THE AIR FILTER SOLD BY SSDIESEL SUPPLY: This product sold by ssdiesel supply has be found to be DEFECTIVE where the filter falls apart SENDING METAL PARTS IN TO THE TURBO and/or Engine!!! To date it seems NOTHING has been done to resolve this provlem with the customer(s) to fix the turbo/engine damaged by the defective ssdieselsupply product(s)... Also this misleading so-called performance intake system sold by ssdieselsupply sucks HOT underhood are and defeats the cool air intake of the original system. Cooler air is known to be much better for performance. It is advised that prospective diesel parts customers AVOID SSDIESEL SUPPLY for the above and other reasons.
