@Mike&Ike Because members were being overly opinionated about the Greddy kit and SBD kit being exactly the same. Basically the thread got way off topic because members think that their opinions actully matter when they don't. All it did was ruin a thread that had a lot of good information for member who wanted to purchase the kit.

The discussion about the SBD being a rip off or not should also be good information for a member who wants to purchase that kit. Its good to know what your buying into.

And opinions do matter because if you don't buy it they wont sell it.

Here is a part right out of the SBD box, if I had paid for this I would want some answers.

The thread was an SBD kit owners thread - if you and others want to crap on it, feel free, but start your own damn thread.

That's how they come from SBD. Honestly it turned me off a little when I saw it, but I cleaned it up by sanding it and you can't even tell it is there.

In case you missed it..

It's not "Damaged" thats the Greddy Logo grinded down so you cant tell what it is... They could have done a better job, someone dropped the ball on that one, Or the grinder as it were.

I completely agree about wanting answers as my kit came the exact same way. But it also can raise the question... Who is supplying Greddy with their parts? Because the "Real" Greddy kit comes with that same pipe stamped in that exact location... But this back and forth about whether or not this kit is a copy when no one really knows the truth is the reason why the original thread was deleted. If you dont like the kit, then dont like it somewhere else. Create an arguement thread on your speculation that this kit is a copy, but dont bring your opinions to a thread with out having actual facts(from Greddy, SBD and Zage) to back them up.

Someone isn't very skilled with the grinder.

You guys would be surprised about the Japanese part makers that outsource to Taiwan. Greddy has been outsourcing the intercoolers in Taiwan for a while same as their coilovers. This isn't something new to the market. A lot of Japanese manufacturers do this to save money because the labor rate is cheaper.

I don't think outsourcing is the issue. I think the logo being taken off with a grinder is the issue

I agree, but I can see why they take it off. However, SBD should look into cleaning up the pipe before shipment so it doesn't look like a damaged piece.
