So this is a Conclusive Summary of the thread.

1) Fake build sheets have been posted by Scott multiple times. (verified)
2) The build sheets were used for customer transactions. (verified)
3) The fake build sheets listed parts that do not even exist. (verified)
4) He unsuccessfully tried to cover up the evidence trail by editing old posts. (verified)
5) He posted on g350z that he had nothing to do with the build sheets but the evidence clearly shows otherwise. (verified)
6) He sold fake CJM fuel rails to a customer, was caught and then lied about it. (verified)
7) Denies and lied about ever working on Krncoolwater's BBQ2. (verified)


There is actually much, much more but it only takes confirmation of one of these to know his true character.

The fake build sheet advertisements:

********* = G35oZDRIVER
http://***********.com/forums/showpo...2&postcount=42
This is reference to Scotts own posts showing him lying through advertising posts using the fake build sheets.

Denial of having anything to do with the build sheet:
http://***********.com/forums/showpo...4&postcount=33

Proof that he did advertise with it:
http://***********.com/forums/showpo...&postcount=614

The fake build sheet coverup:
It is obvious that he did try to push off that build sheet as parts available and used in his motor builds.

it is also very obvious that he went back and edited that post years after he originally penned it...(as shown by Quicksilver)...as an attempt to try and hide the fact that it was the very same one as posted by Sharif on this forum.

Noah might have tried to cover for Scott, but we all know the truth. it was just a cover and Scott tried to pull his typical (and well learned) VRT scam. when caught, he solicited help from someone with little to nothing to lose...Noah. then, left him to take the blame for a "typo"... a "typo" that just happens to be the (once again) the EXACT SAME build sheet as HE, HIMSELF, POSTED on that other forum.

The fake CJM fuel rails:

Starting at post 313.

Lies about having worked on BBQ2:
In the customers own words.
http://my350z.com/forum/7721175-post4550.html


The above links and quotes are more than enough to clearly see everything you need to know.

Thank you!

Default The Most Controversial Build on this site... A Full Build from Relentless Autosports

I'm fully expecting some negative feedback from people strictly because there are a lot of people that talk mad **** on Scott Bush from Relentless Autosports! Trust me I've read all the threads about Scott and his involvement with VRT. To set the record straight, he left VRT at or around a year before all the shady dealings and bad crap started happening there. He saw what was happening, finished his last car then bounced. So now that he owns Relentless Autosports he's had the rap sheet from VRT following him around like the plague even though he wasn't involved with that crap!

Quote from Scott:

We just finished a complete build on a Z. This car has really came out nice and feels very good and strong already. I have been driving it as much as possible the last day and a half with a very conservative tune loaded up in the SS box, with some conventional detergent break in oil, and on wastegate spring pressure (11 psi) just to break it in. Got about 250 miles on it and all seems perfect, not so much as a slight hick-up are a single leak from anywhere. Can't wait to do the final tune and oil change on this car and hand the owner back his newly conformed BEAST .
Gotta mostly thank my guys (Mark and Pat) for a job well done, as always.


This car has pretty much everything necessary (performance wise) and is a very well rounded complete build.
This car came to us with the TSW wheels, billet grill insert, the Injen exhaust, plenum spacer, and underdrive pulleys already installed........

....Here is the new parts list (off the top of my head)......

- Relentless Autosports built VQ35DE race engine with our own RA designed rods and pistons
- Our now famous (and now frequently copied) use of the HR head bolts and modified HR head gasket, of course (LMAO)
- Jim Wolf Technology C2 cams and valve springs
- Jim Wolf Technology 700BB twin turbo kit complete
- Jim Wolf Technology fuel system with 250 walbro pump, JWT FMU, and SS box
- DW 500cc injectors (the new style) flowed and calibrated on a flow bench jig by us for accuracy
- Jim Wolf Technology high clamping force clutch and lightweight flywheel
- Setrab custom engine oil cooler
- Megan Racing harder rubber semi-solid engine and transmission mounts
- Megan Racing resonated down pipes
- Polished upper plenum with ported lower collector and ported mid section
- Carbon fiber engine cover
- Quaife ATB Helical LSD differential
- BC Racing BR+ coilovers with custom springs and valving
- Megan Racing adjustable upper control arms, rear camber arms, and rear radious arms
- Megan Racing Big Break kit front and rear (calipers/rotors/pads/lines
- Hard Race sway bars
- AEM wide band air/fuel gauge
- Stri boost gauge
- Stri oil pressure gauge
- Custom gauge install

My Tribute to Scott:

I would like to send a special thanks out to Scott for this Build!! We sat down in June of last year and I had come to him via recommendation from some of the guys on this site. I came to him with a list of things that I wanted to install with prices and locations... he asked me what I was going for, which was a 500 HP (give or take) street car with the occasional track and drag thrown in. He then promptly looked at my list and handed it back and said I had picked practically all the wrong things lol! I had listened to too many people on the forum and was requesting useless items. Thats the great thing about Scott, he doesn't beat around the bush and he doesn't try to get you to buy things that are unnecessary for what you may be going for. He went straight down to business and asked how much I was looking to pay (20,000-25,000). He then told me a little bit of his background, mainly about how he specializes in G's and Z's! And he told me all the things that I would need to support a 500 HP car. Breaks, suspension, built motor, TT kit, etc. The best part was that he got me better parts and more put into my car than what was on my list for cheaper! The only draw back was that it took a little bit longer than expected, which was mainly due to the economy dropping and companies saying they have parts when they really didn't. But its all good, Scott cares very much for his clients and their cars and really gets to know them on a personal level, unlike other companies that will just throw on any part that you ask them. Over the past couple of months Scott has filled me in on every detail of the build (sometimes going off on little tangents speaking in pure car lingo, which I can keep up with for the most part but DAMN he knows a lot about Z's and G's. lol) In short I would recommend Scott's Shop to anyone for any reason, what ever you're going for, he will make it happen!! Thanks a lot Scott and to all the others that made this build happen!!

and not from the dyno shop's dyno either. That is far and away the worst dyno in the world. I honestly dont think those guys know how to operate it. They dynoed my stock Titan at 450 TQ

This was the same truck on a DD

So all this and no dyno sheet or numbers?

And you have a fully built motor with big turbos and only 500cc injectors?

I am a bit skeptical about the RA designed rods and pistons. Just because you run a shop doesn't mean you are ready to step up to the plate in designing those two components unless you have lots of engineering resources. If we are talking custom spec'd, now that is a different story.

Good luck and hopefully you are happy with your build.

This is typical RA a stuff. Claims of big numbers, with no dyno printout and a curious build sheet.

I'm curious about a few things:

a) What is the deal with the RA designed rods and pistons?
b) If the car is actually laying down 500whp, shouldn't it need bigger injectors than 500cc's? My car puts down 387whp, and I'm pretty sure my RC injectors (the ones that came with the Greddy kit) are nearly 100% duty cycle.
c) Why not go with a legit EMS?

However, as long as YOU are happy with the car, that is what matters.

I'm not trying to run high HP I'm just going for a 500 HP streetable car. im not running a Fuel Return System that requires bigger injectors. And the car hasn't been tuned yet hence no dyno sheet. I'm not going for the whole big HP number I wanted a daily driver with a grip load of power and thats what he gave me!!
