Tom, I had trent tell me that his fab guy messed up. The only thing I didn't have a problem with was the downpipe. So either htt ,a known and high name company, has had hundreds or thousands of kits with these problems that I've never heard about. Or Trent was lying when he said he checked the custom fabrication on the kit on 3 different engines. You look at the pictures of my intake and tell me a quality, professional companies quality assurance would let that out the door.


And Chris I totally agree, I don't doubt his character, just his business

Even if that was 100% accurate, it wouldn't justify selling a poor quality kit IMO.

Doesn't this thread and the others prove him guilty?

Either way.. Let us know when you get the triple kit installed and everything is ok. I'm sure Chad's perspective was about the same until he installed his kit.

If you're too busy to help your customers, then you're too busy for my business. That's my personal take on it.

This is probably the 7th or 8th person that has had not only fitmet issues, but pieces missing out of there kit that should be included. That's why I went out and bought each and everything individually for the kit I will be building. Trent's a great fabricator from what I see on his website, but I guess not so great putting kits together for customers? Lol. Hope all turns out well for the people that Trent's trying to make it right for.

If you are able to have him install it in his shop, that's bout the only way it makes sense to me. "oops I forgot a plug, oh look it's in my cabinet", as opposed to where the f*ck is that g$d damned v band exhaust clamp? F*ck I gotta order one g&d damnit to hell, or Jesus Christ no f*cking bolts for the oil drain? that's the nice way of saying what I said

Let us know sometime in mid 2014 when you get all of your parts for your triple kit that is going to be shipped out here soon.

I was missing clamps boots and a waste gate regulator when I got my twin kit from Trent. Then the piping did not fit. after numerous calls and three weeks of "I will ship it tomorrow" I finally got my new piping and parts
