Yeah I must say Mauricio and MMP is a new company with really great customer service with competitive prices. Although there are known problems that rise up here and there, but he always seems to take care of his customers. This is why I will continue to buy from MMP.

All the new bolt clamps went out yesterday to everyone as well as a new improved Tee fuel quick connect fitting going out in all the new kits that is easier to install.

update: i went outside this morning to start my car, haven't touched the thing in probably a week or so since all of the snow we've been getting in the northeast. i noticed a strong smell of gas and even though i have a fully c@tless setup i still smelled way too much e85. thankfully before i pulled off i checked under the hood and there was a tiny hole in the fuel line going from the tee to the fuel rail of the port injection plate. it was pissing everywhere, so obviously the fuel line isn't made up to par just as the clamps originally. i had to go to my local auto store and buy some 5/16 fuel line hose to replace it and get my car operable again. really regret going with this kit even though it was a cheaper option. the fuel line i bought at the store today seems so much better quality than the one supplied in the kit. my advice for anybody running this kit would be to replace that line immediately. maybe he'll do something like he did for the failing clamps and send everyone a new one...

Just a suggestion, but maybe you should offer a stainless braided line as an extra option, while including a higher quality fuel line as standard.

Maybe all these things were addressed with the fuel it kit....

Why cheap out on a system that adds more fuel to the motor? Charge pipe, sure....Crap gaskets, fuel line, tees..No thanks. Does the hassle and potential hazard justify the money you saved?

We all take a risk on anything when we try to save money over something else. To have a lower price on something, you have to make cuts on quality to still stay profitable. If I bought his kit, I would know there a risk that parts might not be up to par. There is a reason that Fuel It kits cost a lot more, you get what you pay for.

That is my question...Why would you cheap out on something like a fuel delivery system.? I get buying a cheap charge pipe. I don't understand why you would by cheap parts that could result in a car fire.

I'm assuming as far as the fuel line and fittings, he wasn't expecting them to fail. I'm sure it was an oversight on his part and I would guess since he's a pretty standup guy, he'll probably ship replacements to anyone who bought the kit and is requesting them and also change the lines and fittings in the existing kits he selling.

Exactly, even if the parts are "cheaper" so to speak you would still expect the kinks to be worked out in testing.... From what I've seen it doesn't seem like testing was done though. :/ Fuel-It FTW.

That was me with the melted outlets. They were junk. I have tweanty plus years in manufacturing, and it was clear that they were cheap Chinese garbage with no quality control. He has been doing a good job on damage control, but at the end of the day, he is copying products, cutting corners, and selling at a lower price. He won't last.

Surprised hes made it this far. Anyone who has had a MMP product in hand can realize corners were cut on hardware, clamps, fittings, etc. Shame that a community embraces such inferior quality product only because cost and that he has "good customer service"

I've never had an issue with cheaper products as the consumer usually wins. In this case, the product is always at a sacrifice of quality. Gouging the market and other community vendors by lowballing an inferior quality product at a lower price point to be appealing to the uninformed is a not a movement I support

Time is money. Even if he replaces parts and such, what about labor ?? Theres a LOT of guys who are not mechanically inclined and pay to get stuff like this done. So if thats the case, the owner still gets stuck paying AGAIN to tear down all needed to get to the fuel line and clamps. For the guys that are capable of install, doing double labor still sucks because you have to take time out of your day (time is money to most of us) to fix SOMEONE ELSES MISTAKES ???

As I stated before, we all roll the dice when we buy cheaper products, possibly sacrificing quality for saving money. I obliviously don't like when anything fails, but I also rarely buy cheap stuff either and I do all the work myself to reduce the risk of stuff coming up even though there's always unexpected things that can happen. If anyone runs until an unfortunate circumstance like this one, you just have to use it as a lessons learned towards future purchase decisions.

I have some vrsf stuff in my car also, the hardware that came with those items were junk, but i believe they have some quality control on thier end.

As said above, i have never seen a platform so blindly follow a new vendor, and bash anyone that questions them. Same thing over at e90 with frankenturbo.
