This was one of the best experiences I have had with a vendor here since I joined NASIOC.

*Communication- excellent.
*Shipping- very quick.
*Product/fittment- very high quality/excellent.

I will admit I wasn't expecting this level of quality.The frame and mesh are both attractive and very strong; this thing is not fragile. The powder coating was flawless. I believe this component was built with the intention to be very resilient; as if it was OEM. As mentioned earlier, the fittment was perfect.

I may have to give Matt more business in the future..

I had a great experience with KS-Tech also. I ordered my phenolic spacers from there. They came w/4 oem gaskets, new longer bolts and washers. Very knowledgable guy and quality parts with fast shipping.

I ordered the air pump gaskets from him. The gaskets were OEM Subaru gaskets and was the only place I found the gaskets when doing the air pump delete. I had also made mention of looking for something else and he said to give him a call. Called him and talked for about 30-40 minutes great guy!

Technically it is not a "custom" box. It is a standard box (a little hard to find though) with standard foam components placed in strategic places. But yeah, it's pretty nice.

Ordered a bunch of things from KS Tech
Hood scoop delete
Phenolic spacers
SRI and CAI intake

I have to say that all of their products worked out really well and were made very well. Everything came packaged well and all of their products, including the intakes worked well and tuned well.

The most impressive thing though was the level of service I got from them. Whenever I had a question or a request they always responded quickly.

Simply one of the best vendors I have ever dealt with

I wanted to bump this thread for a great vendor.

I ordered:

Air Pump Delete Kit w/ OEM Gaskets
Real Phenolic Thermal Intake Spacers w/ OEM Gaskets

And I was very pleased with the product that arrived. I have not installed them yet, but the appear to fit great and the overall workmanship on the parts is great (I'm a mechanical engineer and get paid to notice things like fitment and craftsmanship).

I ordered them late on a Friday afternoon/evening, received shipping confirmation on Saturday and had the parts in my mailbox by Monday when I got home from work!! Stupid fast shipping.

I like to see a company with good ideas, great products and excellent service; KS Technology meets all of these criteria.

I highly recommend this vendor. I will try to post pictures of the products being installed for those who are curious.

Me and a friend got tuned by Clark Turner this past weekend and before the tune we installed KStech intakes. I got The 73mm CAI for the perrin FMIC and by friend got the 83mm CAI for his perrin FMIC gt30r rotated set up. They fit perfect and the quality of crastmanship is the best I have seen yet.
Thanks for the great products, keep up the good work Matt!

+1 for KSTech. I happened to be in Reno and they made arrangements for me to swing by a private home to pick up a part around 9pm. Can't say enough for them.

Air Pump Delete, right? Sorry I missed you. Next time let's grab a beer or something.

Terrible business ethics. Placed order almost 2 weeks ago, sent numerous emails and very late, if any at all replies. The day after I wanted to check my order status and noticed they were out of stock. The day after I sent an email and no reply. Another email the next day giving time to reply and no response. Next day, had a very brief reply saying it was out of stock and had to be made. 2-3 days later I email again and get a reply that it was finished and will be another week for it to be coated and shipped. It's 3 days after it was supposed to be shipped. I decided to cancel my order and it was done instantly. Terrible ethics in general.

Sorry extremely frustrating with this whole ordeal but it happened the week before with my spacers I had ordered, on eBay, apparently they were out of stock when it said there were 900+ available. However, they were nice enough to ship them 1-day priority for me.

Ordered KSTech 73MM intake on April 3rd with 2 day shipping. Three days go by and ask the vendor whats going on.
Matt responds with...
Quote:
Hi. Sorry, I should have emailed you. We are waiting on more of the elbows that we used to make the intake housing. Should ship Monday or Tuesday.

- Matt
I ended up calling Matt and no point did he offer to make anything better. I said, lets try to do something you have in stock. He didn't seem interested because the in stock part was cheaper it would of required him partially refunding me money. I even asked for a full refund he didn't budge.

It's now nine business days, not including the day of the order, since ordering and no part in my hands.

Very disappointed with vendor, could of refunded my 2 day shipping @ $23 or done something.

I WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS VENDOR TO ANYONE.

Damn, looks like we're both going thru the same thing same excuses..

he might want to put unavailable or out of stock, or will take so many business days to fab.. No where on the site does it lead you to believe these intakes have to be made..

I did get offered a refund tho. so saving grace

After the contact with Matt and nothing happening, I disputed the transaction with PayPal and asked for a refund.
Matt countered the dispute saying it shipped then it didn't go till a later date. PayPal wouldn't refund because Matt said it was in transit. Ordered on April 3 and eventually got the intake on April 17th.
