yeah laugh now! Wait till im spanking your ass down the track.. haha that would be cool though huh.. well for me not so much for you.. too bad it will never happen.

Not one thing has gone right buying these parts though. From getting the wrong pistons, being backordered on bearings, not getting my turbo for a month, being backordered on EM, clutches, drop shipping from vendors, wrong invoices, ****ty packaging etc.... you name it, it has happened with vendor f-ups. The only vendor I was 100% satisfied with has been cobb with their rod bearings.

Ill have to show you the box of parts im starting to collect. Its getting big and heavy. It is almost enough parts to spank up on a certain gt35r Sti I know of, be afraid! be very afraid! (you wont have to worry for awhile because I dont have money for new gears).

I don't want t drudge up any old arguments on here, but did you ever get any info on these cams? I am in the middle of getting all the parts I need for my 2.5 hybrid and these cams are in consideration as the price is very attractive. I was just curious what you found out about them and what your impressions are of their performance.
