their not lower, but id say they are overpriced for sure. i found several places with 60 day motor and trans warranty. and they cost what everyone else costs. i payed almost 1900 to jspec when all the other places we saying 1100.

good to know about jspec....
I've heard nothing but praise for heavy throttle... probably the most expensive place but I've seen them bend over backwards to make things right whenever anyone had a problem.

anyone have any experience with password?

anyone know any other alternative importers?

I've only purchased small parts from Heavy Throttle, and I've worked closely with folks who have bought large items. Jeff has gone out of his way to help people out. He runs a good business, and when he makes mistakes, he is very quick to resolve them.

JSpec.com has been ok to deal with. Sam gets hounded with emails from tire kickers. If you're looking for somehting specific, and are serious with cash to back yourself up, he is your man.

note - this is not jspecauto.com

I would never do business with Heavythrottle.
My issue was lost on the old forum.

I was calling everywhere for the Hotshot for the S14 and no one had it (enjuku, cip, etc.) As a last resort I called HT and they told me yes they had it in stock. I ordered it. I received an email with "pending" on the shipping for the header ( I ordered the Catco Cat too). I waited. I received the email regarding shipping the next day and it said 3 weeks for the header. I flipped out. I called back and they changed the story to "oh well yeah we WILL have it when it gets here." I said that wasn't good enough. Then they said they would just drop ship it from Hotshot.
So I get the cat and they didn't even pack it in anything, so the flange was all bent and never fit right. Thank god the header came direct from Hotshot. That had some packing material.

That's my rant on HT. I posted this to every forum I knew and I never got anything.

Yes. But by that time I had the cat on and going. I didn't notice the flange until my mechanic friend put it together. I didn't have a spare car or the like so there was no easy way to get it back to them.

They just told me to send it back and they would send me another. As we know that doesn't work when you DD your car.

I didnt even catch that jsc... He was talking about jspecauto.com not jspec.com - I was surprised initially because I have heard good things on jspec.com.

Thats too bad on heavythrottle.com Everyone is allowed to make mistakes on whats in stock/not in stock. Many times places like that don't carry it in stock so being in stock at hotshot is technically "in stock" for them. The cat there's no excuse for.


Another for the list: http://www.amsperformance.com/
I have placed orders from them and they have been MORE than amazing to deal with. I had a problem with a shipment and they were great to work with and shipped me a tshirt to boot. A+ for an above and beyond place. Great place for turbo parts and the best shift knob ever.
