    Anyone have pics to share of damaged products?

    My -12 injectors in the box:

    My oil pan gasket in a too small box creasing the copper:

    In the middle of replacing my stockers again after the VTT ones failed after 4k miles...just received some parts from a company that I've always considered to be the best (they have a lifetime warranty, so take a guess) and they decided to throw the exhaust manifold gaskets loosely in the same box with the gallon of coolant. Needless to say they got crushed beyond being usable. I hope this isn't a sign of them growing too fast and quality taking a turn for the worst. Hopefully just a new employee not knowing what the hell they were doing or something like that.

    ECS did the oil pan gasket above. Previously, They did the same as the injectors above and those got returned as well.

    ECS really does suck at packaging. "Let's throw everything in a box, put some paper on top of it. Good to go! "

    FCP Euro did that to the couplers that came with my new injectors when I bought them on sale. But they good at no questions asked return/exchanges. Still...having to wait is losing money and annoying as shit.
