Bills custom intakes+ LB7 turbo horn be wary!

So after having some odd issues with my truck fueling and noticed my intake and turbo horn was quite loose(my own fault) after pulling it apart I notice my intake had snapped off leaving about a 2"x1/2" hole where the little support beam going to the shroud connects right after my filter. After pulling that off I get to taking off my turbo horn and see the paint on the inside has been chipping off and getting sucked into my turbo... Why one would paint the inside is beyond me especially with a paint apparently not made to stand up to heat or whatever caused it to do this. So I'm pretty bummed and won't be putting this shit back on my truck. Here's some pictures of the damage. Anyone running his stuff may want to double check everything I have only been running it for somewhere around 10k miles.



Don't know how bad my compressor wheel really is but you can see wear marks from the paint chips/ dirt getting into my turbo.

So happy to think I was jus going to tighten some bolts and saw this. I'm pissed. Why would he even paint the inside of it to start with? Besides the obvious, colored paint adds hp

Go with a reputable intake manufacturer. Well see of bill helps me put the first turbo horn he sent me wouldnt fit because he drilled the bolt out wrong and he sent me a new one without even seeing the messed up on so hopefully hell help me out here but Im not sure I want to continue to use any of his products anyways...
