Truspeed Catback Exhaust

Hello,

Just noticed there was a catback exhaust listed on the Truespeed website. Its a pre-order so its not yet completed but I didn't know if there was any back story to this kit so I thought I would ask. There is a group-buy price if 10 are reserved but I wont get into that portion.

Link to the product - https://www.truspeed-performance.com...product_id=249

Re: Truspeed Catback Exhaust

As it, connects after the catalytic converter, it does not have a resonator in the system, so it may have that droning resonance that removing it creates.

Re: Truspeed Catback Exhaust

I guess I should have clarified. I was looking for details about the company, fitment/success with the SVX and if I should actually expect for this part to make it to production.

I will be very honest with you, he has had some rough moments in the past but for many years he seems to have been solid and reliable.

Re: Truspeed Catback Exhaust

Thanks for the feedback. I emailed the company a couple of weeks ago and still haven't heard anything.

Re: Truspeed Catback Exhaust

For me, Truspeed's service is worse than AMR (I've had ok experiences with AMR).

Around Dec/January I ordered an Aluminium radiator from Truspeed, their's was $25 cheaper than AMR's and appeared to be IN STOCK according to the website. Ok, I'll order one. First the Truspeed guy was sick, ok wait from him to get better, then it turns out, they are not in stock, but they will get them soon (from AMR it turns out). They say they will handle AMR comms and get the radiator. Next they start complaining that AMR put the price up on them (AMR was always advertising at $450 when I've check - which did before ordering from Truspeed) and they want more money from me to cover that, plus shipping costs as well, plus some more ranting/complaining about AMR. Then (not sure when June-ish maybe) they say they are not getting the radiators from AMR will source them from some where.....

Will AMR have shipped their radiators now, but I've got no radiator from Truspeed, and they still have my money. My SVX project sits rotting in the drive way waiting for a new radiator.

At least AMR have delivered, and much fast then Truspeed. Truspeed just seem like a middle-man type deal, you'd be best buying directly from the maker (even if they are AMR...).

So, at your risk.....

Good luck!
Ian.

The the Truspeed guy was a member here, but is now banned from some reason:
http://www.subaru-svx.net/forum/member.php?u=3779

And here's a thread from him promoting Truspeed for SVX things. I like the idea...

Cheers,
Ian.

Man, that sucks big time. Tells you how important is to check someone out beforehand. I never do it either...

Re: Truspeed Catback Exhaust

Sadly, this is far too common in our community. We all need to be more vocal in calling out such behavior when it starts to try to prevent the next person from being taken advantage of as well.

Re: Truspeed Catback Exhaust

Following up on my comments here.

I did get a full refund in the end. I'm glad to see John Beasley following through with this. It does give me some hope.

I'm a bit frustrated that I've missed out on the AMR radiators, but also some empathy for John trying to support SVX owners with his small outfit. There seems to be less and less places catering to SVXs, and less new parts left in stock... (Damn, wish I'd bought a set of brand new head lights a year ago...).

Cheers,
Ian.
