Re: boostedhatch is a lye

depends on what you call a cracked head. Cracks between the valves on an 8 valve head, are perfectly normal and do not affect the overall functionality of the head.

Sorry to disagree, but that's not always true. I have seen valve seats come loose because of those "normal" cracks.

He told him it wasn't cracked before he went clear out then when it was when he got there.

Re: boostedhatch is a lye

When I took the head off I didn't see any cracks because all the carbon.I had no problem's with the head at all.So if you want me I'll send you like 10 bucks to cover your cost in gas.Why didn't you say something there when you looked at the head instead of doggin me here?

Re: boostedhatch is a lye

The cracks are probably not going to effect the head. IIRC all 7 I have out in my building have cracks between the valves. As long as the cracks aren't deep enough to get to the coolant jacket you have nothing to worry about. Have it rebuilt(new guides, valve job, etc) and run it. You'll look back at this as a learning experience(not everything about these car's or their parts are as they appear).

I had the same problem.....loooks nice, until you give that combustion chamber a good cleaning. If the head appeared to have no cracks, and they were there after the carbon was removed id say that head is good 2 go for use! if you can visually see the casting shift between the vales then you may be in trouble!

Re: boostedhatch is a lye

Just remember you are not buying new parts. Mint to td guys somtimes means hardly any rust, tires not too bald etc. No need to bash. Unless he promised a head, but instead gave you the shaft. ahem...

Re: boostedhatch is a lye

The head on my GTC not only has cracks between the valves, but on one chamber, there are two cracks. That makes a loose piece of metal between the valves. I had it pressure tested and came out fine. Been running it over a year now. That makes the rest all seem good. If the head wasn't giving the seller any problems before pulling it, I wouldn't have any problem with using it.:thumb:
And yes, most all have cracks between the valves.

boostedhatch ??

anyone have experience dealing with him???

im about to send a turbo to trade, and was wondering how reputable he or his word is?

he said the turbo was suppose to ship and UPS was coming to pick it up at his door

my computer broke and i got back online 2 days later for him to ask me for my tracking # after i asked him for his 1st???? that sounded like a very kiddish reply to me, and then was told he backed out on shipping because he thought I "flaked out" after i told him I had no access to his shipping address as it was on my computer.

so end of story, if i had wrote down the shipping addy my turbo would be in the mail or at his house by now, and i would have recieved nothing.

he has no real feedback on here, so just looking for the heads up. thanks guys.

Re: boostedhatch ??

whats the reason for the triplicate posts ?

(and a Subject line with actual info would help too)

go to the 'Vendor and Seller Feedback' forum, at the top under "Page 1 of 64.." is a Pulldown "Search this Forum", use the pulldown to enter "boostedhatch", then hit "Go"
