Man, I really hope that GBrilliantQ does not get bit again. After his debacle with HPs, I'd sell my camaro and buy a Prius.

funny thing.... IIRC, GBrilliantQ's nightmare problems with HPS had to do with Chris (aka HPS) pointing all his F-ups at his outside vendors or suppliers. he (as in Chris) would say how this person let him down and how that person let him down. this was the reason(s) why Chris was never at fault. instead it was everyone elses' fault.... (you know how that goes.)

now we have the main subject of this thread in question. how he's so busy doing this and how he can't get nothing done because he can't find any reliable help because of blah, blah, blah..... well, you know the old song, "Cry me a river......."

maybe some people aren't cut out to run a business and some people are. in any case, I think I would hire someone who knows how to run a business and who knows how to PROMPTLY return emails and phone calls so customers do not get ignored. instead, he hangs out on this forum (and obviously others as well) and continues to act the way he does in turn getting suspended in multiple occassions.

it's obvious I feel zero sympathy for RX mainly because of the way I was treated with my catch can order. Tracy can say what he wants but in the end him and I know the truth. whether he can ever man up and tell the truth is up to him. I really believe in what comes around goes around. I think some very, very bad weather is in RX's present and near future.

Good Lord, just look at this section of the forum alone. there are three threads on the main page all about horrible experiences with RX. what the heck does that say???

When shops run this far behind and start doing crappy work they are just robbing Peter to pay Paul. If your 10 weeks behind on making a can but are still taking orders it's because you have to have the money from the orders. That's the way it was with HPS.Chris was taking money from one guy to finish another's. By the time I figured out I was Peter it was to late. In the end someone will be losing a lot of money if this keeps going cause they will be the last Peter!

this is hilarious because I was explaining the situation to my buddy earlier and I literally said "think of a ponzi scheme but with catch cans."

Just curious as to why, I have not seen other valves like this, is there a better alternative?. Seems like a quality piece, but I have never actually seen one.

I've had no issues with RX with my catch-can but I also removed the check-valve as I was getting back-firing on shifts. Figured as you and the other poster said that the stock piece allows free flow between the manifold and the intake so why block 1 path with the check-valve.

Tracy happily took my ported TB back too when I didn't like it so myself I have no complaints but it does sound like he's getting too busy for his own good right now.

How do you remove the check valve?
Can I ask what you didn't like about the ported TB?

I would be very curious to see what is found if someone were to slice open their catch can.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=305477

I put my catch can on at 10k miles without ever taking the IM off and examining the valves. Who knows what was there before but the fact that I've done two upper induction cleanings with both BG and MOC chemicals at the dealership make me wonder. The can is definitely catching oil, I should put something on the other side of the hose to verify it's getting all of it.
