I would like to know if anyone knows the quality or reputation of Stafford Fabrications. I am looking to purchase this turbokit from them: http://www.truehonda.com/inventory.php?action=productdetail&id=14

Incredibly True. I don't know if Mike is a rip off specialist or just a really bad business man but I would never buy anything from them.

They are kinda one in the same. I dont understand bad busniness. I think some people use it as an excuse so they are legal con artist. I dont know anything about this guy, but if i were you i would go with a tested company who has shown to be very customer oriented. However it is your money.

that's a lot of convincing to get your mom to blow you

Stafford is crap, its all make shift and seriously not engineered.

I wouldnt trust SF, wait a year for a big name company to put out a decent kit for the r18 and the si
