I specifically pay with a credit card through paypal for this reason. Paypals guarantee is JUNK... so I always have the CC company to fall back on and they can handle it.

Knock on wood.....(not that kind of wood) I've bought MANY things on forums and never had a problem. I like to learn about the people by googleing there SN and email and seeing what there into and who they are. I just try and not buy from shady people. Worked well for me so far on this forum and all others. I pieced together and exhaust and full turbo kit including MS with out buying anything new, just parts from good people.

just contacted the guy i purchased them from he said

We use Denso's for cores and Venom put There pintals in them. If you take them to be flow tested you will find out they are 550cc.
Thanks

what should i say to him, send him the info and pics that there the 1.8L ones? Or is he actually telling the truth.

Because i did try to run them and they didnt and if they were the 1.8's wouldnt they run? I dont know i need some info here, im not one of those dicks that tries to scam people

Yeah, Miataz isn't a scammer. He's been trying to work it out with me just now. I didn't want to throw out a name without first having him a chance to work it out. If he worked it out then it was just his mistake on sending me the wrong items. But then again, it was also my mistake when i opened up the box and found the 1.8L tan top injectors there. This was what I was running!!! Ha Ha. Only to find out that these were redone by venom to be 550cc. I have yet to confirm this as I don't have a shop here in Hawaii to test the output. I guess to be continued........

I didn't know you could increase the size of these injectors? I guess i would have to test them in my car.

I'm gonna contact venom and see if this is what they do......

Miataz, sorry dude. I'm sure this is the same reaction you would've gotten from a lot of other people after seeing that what they recieved was the 1.8L tan top injectors.

Refused to refund $$ without 20% fee and ship when they sent out the wrong item! lunac666 ( 372) Dec-04-07 20:02
Reply by tlfsupra89 (Dec-05-07 14:33):
Offered a full refund but he refuses to return purchased items.
Follow-up by lunac666 (Dec-05-07 17:36):
BS!! NEVER OFFERED FULL REFUND, Tried to charge 20% restock or ship fees! BOO!!!

looks like they mix up stuff regularly...

i would not believe the **** he is saying, they are known scammers on ebay, at least inm,y opinion, tell him that its not the item pictued in the auction and he has to give you full refund...end of story
or call you CC co. and request your money back...i hope you used a CC to pay

you are wasting your time, the item pictured clearly shows the correct injectors, and if you have tan top injectors it is clear that he sent you the wrong item, ie he was scamming you
i would not waste another minute and file a claim, wrong item sent, thats all

http://www.squaretrade.com/dis/jsp/s...sid=cf45crpqr5

or go here http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=120166295356

i think he mite be telling the truth though becuase would they not run if you put them in a 1.6? They didnt with mine the car was putting and stalled, and he said to get them flowed and they would show...why would he lie hes feedback is good and everyone else who bought those ones, i am emailing one of them right now.

You should have ANY injector you are putting in your car flow tested. Period.

Supersuk, send the injectors out to be flow tested. If they flow 550cc or better call it a day and chalk it up to piece of mind. If they don't, Miataz should refund the cost of having them tested and refund your money.

******* Canadians ... stand behind your sale. Don't get your reputation fucked over a couple of bucks.
