I have no direct experience with them but I know there are a lot of the parts on that site that people advise against regularly.
Hope that helps.

That's the same exact site as (prothe link removed) (notice the dash)

I was kinda wondering the same thing... They have VNT actuators listed for $50...

A customer showed up for his timing belt appointment Monday with one of eMiata's kits. Neither the rollers nor the timing belt are branded, and the timing belt was crunched into a small box causing the belt to be bent in half. I wouldnt do the timing belt job because of the quality (lack of) of the parts. That example is typical of what folks end up with when dealing with eMiata. Since no regular shop can really rebuild a pump, his claims are dubious unless he is selling a previously rebuilt pump by a reputable dealer.

This all sounds like 'made in china' to me

Super low quality knock-off parts...I have nothing against china...it's just that is where this type of stuff usually comes from.

Get your parts from a reputable vendor on this site. If it sounds too good to be true, that usually means it is.

Has anyone tried his IPs? He has an 11mm on there for $710 (minus $300 core) price, and it is really tempting as mine is probably going to leaking after sitting for over a year with 200K+ on it...

Also, does anyone have another site they might recommend for the 11mm IP for an AHU engine?

MAKE SURE YOU GET THE SAME OR COMPATIBLE BOSCH # WHEN/IF YOU BUY ANOTHER PUMP!!!!!! If you have other vehicles to drive and can do it,send the pump to get rebuilt at DFIS in Oregon-I think they are listed in vendor or mechanic section.I think Kerma sells them also.You could also go through dealer-I was going to go that route(already paid for pump and core charge)-but BleachedBora was able to hook me up with one.If you buy a pump that has a different Bosch # or not compatible #,your car will not run right.This happened to me 4 hrs. from home at a trusted mechanics shop......

Is BleachedBora a retailer or just some one that had one?

Was the IP Part # issue from an incorrect IQ setting for that particular pump?

They are certainly a lot cheaper but as many have said YGWYPF .I have bought from that site and there is a difference in quality not only price!In some cases that is fine ,but internal engine parts are not a place to cheap out.
