I'm sure their rear motor mount has to be better than the 2 piece garbage they had back in 2007. I broke that shit in like 2 months. Stock motor mount was better.

A revolution gets its name by always coming back around in your face.

I didn't realize how deep the issues were; I mean I know people have had some issues but.. I didn't expect that list to follow into every single product they've made.

I'm pretty sure.. if I ran a business like that, I would absolutely stop what I was doing and start from scratch after the first handful of failures.

Sometimes you just have to cut your losses and back away or start again.

I wouldn't say I've "fought" for a side, but I guess I was more on the side of SURE than the people, ONLY for the sake of being there as making more products for our cars.

As much as it sucks to punt them off the field and lose backing..
cars blowing up is a bit of an inexcusable error.. especially when it comes to multiple accounts.

I was on SURE/SU's side because of the unnecessary bashing in multiple forums and FB groups and whatnot.

I've never purchased parts from either company, now I probably never will but still there was no need to attack specific people at the companies. It's embarrassing to know some of the people in said groups haha

I am grateful for Kevin's time and effort he put into his post on MSF, it helps to see all of what has happened over the course of multiple products.

Hopefully SU/SURE will release some statement explaining what they will do, if not shut down completely at least temporarily, and make up for what has happened. Especially if the majority of their customers and soon-to-be customers are no longer going to be looking to SU/SURE for products.

Yeah the bashing was a bit uncalled for; especially the extreme repetitive nature of the bashing.

We understand what happened.. you don't have to cuss and threaten for your next 50 posts...

But I agree, it would be a damn shame to see them disappear entirely.

Some people just wanted to cause a riot. Silly humans.

i remember when i bought my Aeros/Sidewinder. they were too long and i tried every which way to get it to fit. called up SURE and they assured me it was my fault and that i was doing it wrong. eventually, myself and my buddy realized SURE was wrong and that something went wrong on the manufacturing line because the intake would not fit. ended up having to shave off some of the silicone to get it to fit. and i just went to look, the bracket holding the intake has basically moved around and sits very awkward now. too much more torque and it could crack the MAF. luckily it'll be coming out as i had to buy the Corksport SRI since it is CARB legal and i just moved to CA.

checked my SSP, rubbing is confirmed. JBR replacement will be ordered.

will check RMM this weekend. going to replace with JBR no matter what as i planned on getting the JBR TMM and PMM anyway.

Anchors, Return, Counterweight, and Boost Tubes are ok...but aside from the anchors, it'd be pretty hard to mess up those parts. Although, come to think of it, the Return took some finesse to get on as it was clearly not designed 100% correct.

Cobb AP (FREEKPerm) | SURE Aeros | SURE Sidewinder | SURE RMM | SURE Return | SURE Anchors | SURE Counterweight | SURE Shortcut | SURE Charge Tubes | SURE Element Shield | SURE TVS Caps | UR v.2 catted DP | UR TP | Resonator Delete | AT Internals | Denso ITV22s | 35% tint | MD OCC | JBR EGR delete | JBR Coolant Bypass Kit | JBR TIG | CP-E SAFEseals | PTP Injector Seal Studs | Sonic Tuning 6k HIDs

Unnecessary bashing? how do you figure? a company makes and produces untested modifications that could potentially harm/kill the buyer.that and being hush hush about their crappy products/revisions. The damage is already done. sure has had months to fix their reputation and have done nothing.

Yes, because some particular people on facebook would post every 5 minutes saying the same thing.

It's unnecessary and monotonous, we understand SURE has had product failures, said users do not need to cuss and extend internet violence to such an extreme that they did.
