knock it off with the knockoff!!!!

Not to sure if the top pick has been covered by its own thread but I'm going to let you know right now that you pay for what you get. I recently began a S13 RHD SR swap and like everyone else I went in and bought a whole lot of parts to make my build as fun as possible. Now some people think I am crazy for all of the work I have put into my car and I would tell them they are crazy and I would do it all over again if I had the chance. Now getting to the point I want to say that I did not go cheapo on all of my parts but my exhaust was a Godspeed special. I think I paid $275 shipped and let me tell you from the start I was impressed with the welds and how clean they looked. Well on start up the exhaust was a little loud for me but that first drive was something else. With a new clutch master 6 puck and Fidanza light weight flywheel not broken in I tuck the car out for an ease drive. to my surprise the can insulation ejected itself along with the silencer in the can. But wait that is not it, with a closer inspection the back of the can opened up as well. so let me be the first many to say I am done with knock offs. By the way this exhaust was purchased from an ebay seller Aerosports who hung up the phone on me when I simply and calmly asked for a replacement.

So if you value your money stay away from Godspeed and the other ebay items. your only going to waist your money and get a sketchy item!!!!!!!!!!

I am inviting all of my Zilvia brothers to post up their experiences so we as a community can benefit from each others experiences!!!!!

LOVE YOU ALL KEEP SPINNING THOSE TIRES!!!!!!!

Godspeed is horseshit
I think peoples biggest misconception is because they see these brands advertised n magazines. Just because you see Godspeed crap in magazines doesn't mean there reputable, its called PAID advertising. And I understand the appeal as this pertains to mostly cheap minded individuals.

And people who say: well if it blow/breaks I'll just replace it.
.......I get so sick of the Godspeed bandwagon. Skunk2 borders on this subject as well.

well it sounds like your bad customer service came from EBAY and not Godspeed. Have you called Godspeed and asked them what they will do for you? I know some of the dudes down there are more than helpful. ;D

I've rocked Godspeed arms, and have yet to have a complaint.

Just because you got the 1 bad item, doesn't mean you should bash everything they sell. Just sayin....

yes, cause every manufacturer is perfect.


I wonder what my buddy should do about his stance coils snapping in half. Maybe no one should buy stance ever again.

yeah....right.

Ok everybody you have to take into consideration the proper installation of these Items. I installed an exhaust not coilovers. I am not saying that you friend did not install the coilovers incorrectly but what I am saying is the POS i bought had no reason on my end for exploding on me. If I would have bought a HKS high power this would have never happened. Bottom line you pay for what you get, it cost half the price of the name brand not only because of the brand name but because the high end brands have to keep up with their standards!

You are right, but what does that have to do with a one time problem making the conclusion that ALL godspeed parts are garbage. If that was the case then the FD Rookie of the year wouldn't run those parts. ;D

It had to do with reputation. Not overall product individuality... and a fully built car with name parts doesnt mean shit. You can always make an accurate product for your show/sponsorship vehicle, its another to produce them on a grand scale with outstanding results.

These rants tend to bother me. I know most people think all knockoffs are shit, but popular brands aren't always great either. Every once in a while you get a 'bad apple'. Also, some companies (like hks iirc) have their turbos made by a different company, that company also decided to start selling the same turbo without the hks stamp for less. Same exact quality, just not 'name brand'... knockoff?

I had the same thing happen to me on a drive one night, and iinm it was an rs-r exhaust.

what?

fully built car would put more stress on these so called shitty parts. I'm sure odi looked into them before installing them on his car. I've showed the arms that sit in my living room to bmw mechanics, fd drivers, even a few people that weld, they say the welds look like shit, but the fact is it's welded all the way through.

Look i'm sorry you don't like godspeed, you may have had a bad experience in the past, but I strongly believe that people/things change.

You know how many times I have customer say they won't buy firestones because of what happened on the Fords in 98.....THAT WAS OVER 10 YEARS AGO. Can you imagine the amount of change from then till now.

If your gas pedal on your prius stuck, would you call all toyotas shitbags? Each and every one before and after the problem.....

On topic though what if the exhaust was a knockoff of the Godspeed knockoff?
