Hytech Replica Ebay header (TDM)

Didn't fit right, I had to heat up the tubes to move them up!! and the power band was up and down on the dyno.

Here's what happened to mine just because they have amazing clearance :(

come to think about it funkypower abs plastic 96-98 spec type r lipkit payed fare bit for them and fitment was terrible. all over the place really and only 4 screws to try and bodge it on as well.

I have just fitted one of these to a VTi. Perfect fit, just quick flat and paint with no prep. Almost OEM quality fit. Came with decent fitting kit (metal brackets, screws nuts and bolts).

What was the problem? This would be the first known issue out of the 50+ we have sold for the EK.

Without feedback/contact issues can never be resolved. Please contact us.

Regards
Johnny

I have to say my 3point strut and MC stopper fitted perfectly though..... unlike some others???

BLOX Arb Droplinks, The rose joints are made out of playdoh and need replacing after about 5-6months

Cheap LCA's , Bushes are worse than OEM and perish quickly.

My Buddyclub Camber arms are still going strong, All top bolts are absolutely fine!? Been on there a couple of years now!

Tegiwa torque damper, rose joints wore out after a couple of thousand miles. Rest of my engine mounts were in good condition so they never put extra strain on the damper

When did you purchase it? These have a 1 year warranty on them...
I'll say it again, any problems people encounter please let us know otherwise things will never get sorted.

Tegiwa Shifter Extension, The one that's £90........ the bottom ball on it where it bolts into the shifter linkage is too big so you have to grind off about 3mm all round before you can fit it. That's the issue i had with mine anyway,

Another stange one... these are made in the UK, so have never had problems.
Also this same problem would have happened with the £180+ fastline as its made exactly to spec. Again this is a first on this issue.

We have spare bottom parts in stock if you would like to change it.

The tight fit is the powder coating thickness. To make it sit more central you will see the hole closest the bulkhead is slightly slotted giving slight adjustability.

^^ wow thats bad :( F7 are normally good.

Everything else from F7 is good as far as im aware its just the fact they have used cheap bearings in the droplinks, there's a few other cases on the net but you would have thought they'd last a bit longer than they have.

Rediculous! Even worse when it 2 of there items together that don't fit?

Are they testing any of there stuff?

Do they quality check anything?

Don't expect ISO 9001 will be issued anytime soon :nono:

I know mate... Tell me about it.

I get the impression there stuff is "made to guess" instead of "made to fit".

That picture above is terrible.

As i have said before we are gradually ironing out problems associated with certain products. The only products that have occaisional problems now are those we source from China. And it really is occasional - we do around 1000 transactions pcm with hardly any problems. Our 99.5% ebay feedback shows this.

We do try to rectify problems with customers but i would say out of all the ones listed in this thread maybe on only one or two ever contacted us to resolve them, and we will resolve them. We are not out to rip anyone off.

Thanks
Johnny
