Hey everyone I have with the help of Matt, GretchenGotGrowl, and a few others revamped my oil return. I don't have clearance issues anymore. Here is a picture of the return set up I am running now. Its from a SS turbo build all I did was have some of the parts custom made. I will post a picture of mine soon.

This is the set up I copied but made adjustments to it for my car. But basically the same thing.




These are some of the parts used before I installed it all. Along with the new Meth controller I needed since it was installed wrong and always staying on even after the car is shut off. Also new vacuum lines since my old ones were filled with oil from the BOV spitting oil into them. And the lines that went into the wastegates as I'm running spring pressure as I can't control boost with the controller I paid for.

How is it that some vendors can continuously have awesome reputations like JRE, ADM Performance and LPE while vendors like RX continuously receive the negative feedback like they do? I will tell you why. Because it all boils down to the one big bad apple in the barrel. And of course we all know who that bad apple is.

I speak nothing but the truth and this section of the forum is the concrete truth. Just read through the bad RX threads. The truth is there in black and white.
I agree. I'm one of the few who support describing your issues from the start on here, before even giving someone the chance to right their wrong. You can always edit/document how they handled the situation later, but generally you shouldn't have those issues in the first place.

And butters hits the nail on the head with what I meant. Stop worrying about what people are saying on the forum, go in the garage and do good work, and then maybe someone will post something positive. The people posting negatively already have their minds made up, no point in coming in with a rebuttal because its not going to change anything.

Pump wasn't installed backwards...and its a $338 top of the line scavenge pump. The arrow I put on to show the flow when wired standard. It is reversible and that is how we had it wired. In fact, it is the same pump you now have on except for the billet bracket.

But, how was the strong statement on the restrictor then retracted? Helps to read the tech manual I posted.

And when you had oil leak, we sent out a brand new replacement turbo to you and you never returned the faulty one for us to get credit from Borg Warner....that is theft.

You owe us the leaking one or the new one back.
Either way.

Do you care to address any of the pictures in this thread? Or are you just going to sit there and call the OP a thief?

Again, Matt never said he installed a restrictor. He said he would see if it needed one.

The welding on that kit is A nightmare no denying that picture say it all. First step would be to fire the welder and find someone that can tig or atleast weld period.

I contacted him no less than monthly to get the car down to correct all at no cost....he claimed he would, we also sent the new turbo immediately when he complained of the leak. At no time did he EVER complain until this organized crap...and the theft of a turbo is not justified by anything else.

Matts exact quote is in the thread. "we also found the EFR turbo needs an external restrictor which we are adding". It was not until AFTER I posted the link to the tech manual that he deleted that.....you of all people gretch.

I sure haven't seen a post where he said that or changed anything. Can you provide a link to the post you are talking about?

As for you PM, I'm just trying to keep the record straight. If you think that's hating on you then so be it.

Cant See Me ran off the road and tore out all his scavenge system we had installed....all the pics are from whatever shop did the repairs.....but you pass over the most unacceptable part...the theft of a turbo from us. How does anything justify that?

What's your next excuse? The magical turbo fairy damaged his car and made the install look like a hack job? I can guarentee that Matt did not do that when he was busy repairing your work. OP already replied to the turbo theft clam; he had to sell it to fix your hack job. And I know that you're going to call me an RX hater and go complain to someone, but I call it like it is. If the evidence pointed to the OP lying about what happened, this post would be defending you and your company. Unfortunately for you, it didn't play out that way.
