Long story short. bought a alternator from him purchased lifetime warranty. Went through 6 or 7 within 6 months. asked for my money back he refused. Took him to court, he did not even show up for court. came up with several excuses one being he did not even know about it. Which is a bold face lie or the court system would not have proceded. I won and now there is a judgement of 1,000 dollars against him. We worked out a deal of him paying me back double the original purchase amount. and now he coming up with more excuses.

I would like to take you up on your offer now. How do we go about this?

Thanks David



To make it easy on you just sell the alternator to whoever wants one and have them send it to me and Ill swap it out or... you can get paid from them and you can ship direct to me. Either way. I think it would be easier to just ship here and then Ill ship the alt direct to them.

Just let me know

Dom



no no, not that deal. the one where you said if your not 200% satisified you'll double the money back


Thanks David


That was with someone else. The best your going to get is your money back for the alt.

Dom


and what about the 1000 dollar judgement? im not afraid to drive out to Tn to show the court house and have them honor it and serve you


Thanks David


So what do you want to do... Ill agree to give you twice your money back and you send the alt back to us and well call it done. Is that acceptable for you?

Dom


That will work, my paypal is Basebalz13@cs.com

i have the reciept here showing the payment was: 389.02 on Dec 24th

ebay auction numbers was 7953641545 & 7955207741

so total amount should be 778.04 and dont worry about paypal Fee's


Thanks David


I dont have a problem doing this but I also dont know about any judgement for $1000.00. If there is one I will need something in writing stating that this transaction we are making completely satisfies any judgement made.

Dom


This successful completion of this transaction dismisses the plaintiff's judgement against the defendant. The defendant will refund the plaintiff $778.04- twice the purchase amount of said product. The plaintiff will return the product to the defendant after the refund is received by the plaintiff. The plaintiff will pursue no further action in this case. The Bedford County Court will be notified that the judgement has been satisfied.

Thanks David



I was talking about something from your lawyer stating the agreement and mailed to me certified.

Thanks, Dom




I talked to my lawyer and he charges 30% of the winning fee. so he would be talking 30% of the 778 dollars. He even said there is no reason for having him write his when what i wrote is perfectly fine. all i need to do is print if off put my signature and mail it certifed because that is exactly what he would do. so i proceded and wrote one. Final copy is this

(defendant)



Re: Bedford County General District Court case GV08002601-00


This successful completion of this transaction dismisses the plaintiff's judgment against the defendant. The defendant will refund the plaintiff $778.04 within 14 days of receiving this letter, as agreed upon, twice the purchase amount of said product. The plaintiff will return the product to the defendant after the refund is received by the plaintiff. The plaintiff will pursue no further action in this case. The Bedford County Court will be notified that the judgment has been satisfied.

and i signed below.



and now he is saying

I did and its not from a lawyer and your going to have to send the alternator back before we proceed.

Thanks,Dom





Now here is what I think. In the document it states: "The plaintiff will return the product to the defendant after the refund is received by the plaintiff" and if you read he agree's to this also. Now I think he was hoping that i would send the alternator back not catching on to this and he would say Oh I sent you a check in the mail, you must have recieved it because I have the alternator in my hands. because in the document is says the only way you would send the alternator back is if you got your refund, and you signed the document.

so IMO he was trying to scam me, yet again.

dc power= much better alts do what ther suppose to not beefed up ouput numbers like cheap amplifiers. there is no way to get 350 amps out of his alts! external reguladed you will only see 300 amps at 18 volts.

So then it's settled. Iraggi *****. DC is by far the best place to get a H/O alt.

hornedfrog1985
12-29-2009, 09:04 PM
If I was going to buy an alt it would be from DC, but I don't really know wtf I'm doing either. All I know is I've heard enough horror stories about dominick irragi.

I know several people with his alts, they've never had a problem. But they are also local to him, too.

Last I heard DC alternators were having problems sending out correct orders, as a friend of mine has this problem currently, and their taking a long time to ship orders. Mechman, Iraggi, DC, Ohio gen, whoever, they all have thier flaws and people have opinions. So and so is better than this, but who cares.
One mans problem was another best costumer experience. IMO HO are expensive period, and they should be handled with great costumer service. To me they all ****, the same way I feel about mechanics who rip you off, you take what you get and hoped for the best. OP, sorry for you man, hope it gets settled.

There's some truth to that but we are talking about the actual product.
As told by other, the Irragi alts arent reliable. As told by other and what I've seen, DC is reliable. Even though customer service *****, I'd rather wait and have a reliable product than to get a sh!tty product and bad customer service. IMO

Again there is some truth to that. I got a friend who swears by DC, then another who's pissed of waiting and gettig free powder coating just to get the wrong product. I also know another guy who runs a 300 amp Iraggi and loves his. So it's all a roll of the dice. Me personally, I have DB electric 200 amp alternator I paid 250, yes a 250 altnator that idles at 110 and does rated at 2500rpm. Had it over a year and never gave me any problems. Also it does rated, I believe 205 at 24xx rpm, had it test at my boys shop. Once again this is MY personal experience. Go with whoever, no company is the elite standard.

It would seem that way since everyone's opinion about both companies are so different. The best way to go would be trail and error for your experience.

way i look at it, look at how many problems each company has, Iraggi the bad heavily out weighs the good

DC n Mechman are opposite.

DBelectric is so-so

Villeza1
12-29-2009, 09:35 PM
IMO, since irragi has a bigger/longer list of horror stories, I'd stay away from them if not local.

In the near future, I'll try out DC for myself and see what happens.

Exactly. Every experience is different. Some people swear by so and so, or this car, or this tv, or this gaming system, and etc. Believe that YOUR great experience is opposite of someone who has had the wrost experience they've ever had. Yes do your research, and what YOU feel is the best judgement, do it. But like I said earlier and like Villeza1 just stated it's a varied experience per costumer...

my didn't come with a sheet but I bought it as an external reg'd alt then changed my setup so I had it changed ot internal reg. and had a smaller pulley put on it. put out 135A~ at idle (700rpm) with a max of around 29X IIRC. that was warmed up, don't remember the cold numbers but they where pretty crazy!

handled close to 5Kw RMS great (don't recall ever seeing anything below 13.3V) with only the big three and a pair of BatCap 2K's

If you haven't already wasted money on the HO alts... dont....

get and AD244 by AC Delco. came factory on the big truck like suburbans, escelades, Hummers etc...

heres list:
(2005-03) AM General Hummer 6.0L
(2005-04) Buick Rainier 5.3L
(2004-02) Cadillac Escalade 5.3L, 6.0L
(2005-99) Chevrolet, GMC Pickup, SUV, Van 4.3L, 4.8L, 5.3L, 6.0L, 6.5L, 6.6L, 8.1L
(2005-03) Isuzu Ascender 5.3L
(2005) Saab 9-7X 5.3L


The AD244 alternator will bolt right up to the stock alternator bracket on the 4.3L with NO modifications to the bracket. The only thing that is different is that you won't be using the 3rd bolt that is on the backside of the alternator. The CS130D has this, but the AD244 doesn't. You won't have any troubles with the bolt not being there.
The AD244 uses the same wire harness as the CS130D. It is a plug-and-play application. These alternators have been tested to put out over 200A. at idle when cold and over 100amp at idle when warm. put a smaller pulley on it and you are easily up there with the $400+ alternators. The one I put on my Bravada tested very close to the same as my 300A Ohio Generator alternator, literaly only a few amps seperating the two... and you can get the 244 for around $50 compared to around $500 for the O.G., 244 won't fit my cadillac though :(
