Since this thread is a lot about Prothe, why does this forum still let him post that he has parts or sale from his website in his sig as a non-vendor? He will randomly post (been awhile) leaving his sig to do the talking.

Default BEWARE of BLAAST Performance turbos ***BEWARE***

My BLAAST 'Billet turbo', which allegedly gave up to 30 lbs. of boost (per seller) lasted about 500 miles.
Had problems with the turbo from day one, and was fed a stream of B.S. by the seller.
BLAAST has ignored my e mails for warranty coverage.
I replaced it with a VNT-17, and have had no problems.
If you buy a BLAAST turbo, you are throwing away good money.
(I'm running a Malone Stage 4 tune)

Engineering? Jeeeeze.

As do I. I ordered injectors from this ass clown.

Cancel your order if you haven't received them yet.

Super glad that this community keeps an eye out for bad venders and keep everyone warned! I need to watch eBay buys more carefully.

More than 4 years later this thread is still valid, and Prothe is still an actual ebay seller!

Small parts that won't destroy a motor may be okay, but anything else is really suspect. If you do buy automotive anything through Amazon, Amazon gives a 365 day return basically no questions all above and beyond whatever the seller has listed in their ad.

*FORGERY WARNING*

Chinese Manufactured ALH/BEW/BRM Oil Pumps
Quote:
Originally Posted by Franko6 View Post
Some time ago when reordering stock of oil pumps, we were sent some that didn't come in the same boxes that we were used to. The pumps appeared to have some manufacturing differences and worse, they were poorly made.
This first picture is not from excessive duration or trash that went through the pump. We took off a poorly hardened internals and after few thousand miles, this is what we saw...

The teeth of the pump were worn and pitted after short service. We removed the pump due to low oil pressure.
In order to spot these pumps, we have some pictures of the housing and especially, the gears, which are not made like the OEM pumps. First, a picture of a genuine pump.

the pump is distinguishable by the engraved 'Feintool' sprocket and the plastic alignment roll pins. Like it or not, the genuine roll pins are black plastic.
Here are some pics of oil pumps that are forgeries. The first is the sprocket, which is not only obviously heat treated, but the 'Feingold' labeling is laser etched rather than deeply stamped in the metal.

Here are some pics of the body of the the knock-off pump.


There are two other notable problems with the pump. On several of the pumps, the center lobe was cut off-center, so that the pump lobes struck each other at one point and had a .012" gap on the opposite side. Also, the sprocket bolt was little more than hand tight. The genuine pumps have the sprocket bolt assembled so tight that it takes some heat and persuasion to remove.
If you receive a pump like this, be forewarned, the quality is poor and may lead to the destruction of an engine. We have seen this same pump sold by our favorite CRAP distributor.

The complete thread on this pump can be found: HERE
