got injen in mail today, metal shavings inside. not cool

So i got my injen long tube in the mail today, and look down the pipe, and there is a crazy amount of metal shavings... The last thing you want down your engine.

Just making this thread as a warning...

Not cool.

Check you crap before you instal it.

Wow, seems like more hassel to return it rather than to just clean it out yourself. I would raise this up to their customer support tho.

I understand your frustratrion, but something like this can happen with any vendor/product, shit happens.

Injen has a very good reputaion here, I'm sure they'll do right by you.

From what I can recall, there was a post on here that said the same thing about a year or more ago. Maybe they called it "metal dust." Mine was the black wrinkle finish and I had just installed it from the group buy and only glanced into it out of curiosity. Wished I had performed a more in depth inspection after reading about it.

I would be pretty upset with that intake but in the end I'm sure cleaning it out would be a million times less frustrating and faster. It's always smart to look through everything you're going to install. Nice catch.
