I recently purchased a set of Evolve tubular (ceramic coated) headers from board member (KenL).

After finalizing the transaction, KenL shipped out the headers and emailed me the tracking number.

A few days later, I picked up the box from my local FedEx shipping center. Immediately, I noticed the box had been tossed around like a rag doll. Regardless, I thought nothing of it at the time.

The box sat for a few days before I got around to opening it. When I finally got some time to open and unpack the box, to my horror there were only 9 header tubes inside! I frantically searched the box, but to no avail.

I immediately contacted KenL and he was more than helpful in trying to rectify the situation. We came to the conclusion, that the piece may have fallen out of the box in transit :eek::eek:oohhh: I then filed an online claim with FedEx. Since I had the next day off from work, I decided to head over to the local FedEx shipping center to see if they might have the missing header tube. Honestly, it was my last option and pretty much a shot in the dark!

To my surprise, the FedEx employee came out of the back room with the header tube in her hand! :M5thumbs::1::biggrinbounce::7::applause::thumbsup:

Obviously, it had fallen out of the box, and was there the entire time!

What an ordeal! Thought I would share my experience with you all!

Headers (and Evolve stage 3 tune) get installed on Dec. 1st :M5launch:

I didn't see that damage on that side in the pic you sent me. I wouldn't have doubted it either that a part fell out with that gapping hole.


Get these installed asap and let's do some runs!:biggrin:

Nice! The Evolve LTH are the only mod left on my list, but that won't be until next year. 2014 has been expensive enough for me and I just paid property taxes and am doing rod bearings in about 2 weeks...bank account really hates me right now hah
