Re: [DML] Free flow air intake is a joke

Daniel.. I have no idea as to what your agenda is but I'll vouch for John  
Hervey.  I have the same free flow air intake that you speak so badly  about and 
I had no trouble at all fitting it in.  It works fine and I have  no trouble 
with it.  I've bought all sorts of electronic updates and such  from John and 
they work perfectly.  You state that he is a "fly by night  vendor" simply 
because he sells from his home, or a workshop attached to his  home.  By your 
definition Bill Gates or Steve Jobs would be fly-by night  when they started out. 
Why create un necessary overhead to drive prices  up?  I'll give you a good 
example of why John is a go to guy.  A half  shaft on my D bound up.  The 
choices I had was to buy a new one from an  "established" vendor ($ 600 +/-) or a 
rebuild from John for about half that if  mine could not be rebuilt.  He sent 
the rebuilt quickly to me and I sent  back to him the old one.  He called me a 
week or so latter to give me the  "bad news" that mine was rebuild able and 
the total transaction cost me  $140.00.  Hmm.. $600 vs $140... kinda wonder why 
I would spend $460  extra?  
    How about an established vendor who sold me an air  conditioning 
compressor and dryer?  25 year old stock that failed after a  few weeks (Compressor) 
and a dryer that was not correct for my vin D.   Still have not received a cent 
back.  John had what I needed for much less  than half the price and brand 
new.  Works excellent.  I've bought from  "established vendors" and generally 
have been very happy with the stuff I bought  and I simply stopped buying from 
the one who ripped me off.  
    Rubber products.. Would you agree that rubber  deteriorates over a period 
of time?  Most of John's rubber products are  brand new and fit perfectly.  
25 year old stock or new?  
No agenda here, as I buy from all but one.

Regarding the Hervey Free flow air intake:
I bought it, and it does  not fit properly. I don't recommend it. In fact, 
the first one he sent was  1/2" too tall to be able to close the engine cover! 
He sent a replacement, but  it does not fit the air intake well enough to 
prevent debris from entering the  engine. It stayed on my car for an hour before I 
removed it.

Another  concern that I have, buying products from a fly by night vendor 
selling from  his house, what if the product damages your car? Does the vendor 
carry product  liabilty insurance? Will they still be there if your engine blows, 
or catches  fire as a result of their product?
