    STATIK

    statik -

    You ordered the heatshield on the 6/30 and received it 7/6. that's pretty good considering there was a weekend and a holiday in between. 3 business days later at your doorstep.

    I hope we're cool and you'll buy from me again.

    STIdrmz - You're all taken care of - Spoke to worx and I should be getting tracking number for you.

    Now the bad news - Polished BOVs have been discontinued and Crinkles Reds are very limitted.

    WORX is going to fill my current orders for crinkles and then they are going on the endangered species list.


    Statik - I plan on getting a few crinkle reds in but I won't know for sure until I get my order. I'll PM you as soon as they arrive.

    my BOV blew off....

    So tonight i was going for a race on the highway, sti infront of me racing a 5.0 mustang. They take off and i pursue them. In second gear i bogged really bad and the car juttered. I tried to put it back in gear and give it gas and it juttered again and my check engline and battery lights came on. I pulled over, poped the hood and found my bov sitting on my engine, no in the correct location. I had to put it back on and tighten it. It really shot off cuz it broke through the mesh that's under the hood. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Forgive me if I'm wrong, but taching up to 6K shouldn't knock the bov loose (or off).

    Regardless that isn't supposed to happen, make sure you keep that thing tight or maybe put a little nail polish on the threads to keep it from getting loose.
