And you can get the same damn TB on ebay for $98. That in itself should tell you something.

Absolutely 0 issues with my ebay 102. Was easy to tune, runs great, responds great. NW has had tons of complaints and issues too, his shit ain't perfect.

I had my time with china TBs (WARR Performance, DBC), and it just isn't worth the headache. Couldn't imagine a china DBW TB.

+1 on a Nick Williams for sure.

I wonder if we could report this crap and have all the Chinese headers, throttle bodies, and notsotruetracs held up in customs, indefinitely, just like with the bootleg techoi's.

I'm surprised the company's whose IP has been stolen don't do so. Or maybe they have and the government just turns a blind eye to it all.

I won’t get into the details, but I’ve had a nick Williams. I had to send it back because the throttle shaft was machined incorrectly. He fixed it, but I wasn’t happy about it. I have a China 92 on mine now and my car drives flawlessly. I did have to change the return spring tension and port the iat hole. I would buy another one in a heart beat. But I don’t mind “fixing” something to save $300. But I’m a cheap-ass.

I agree with Kfxguy. I don't mind a bit of DIY if it saves a decent amount of money. I have a Warr 92mm and it required some minor touch ups to function correctly too. But I'm not cheap, I'm just broke.
