alrite,
so from what i can tell there are two sides to this whole website. those who like JMM and those who like RPD. i have read some awsome things about RPD and havent yet come accross anything against them but all i seem to hear is bad things with JMM.

just a couple of things...
1. what is the RPD website?? i would like to have a look at it to ultimatly decide whether they fit into my modifications i want to do to my car and the power i would like

2. this is a general question but ill still ask it. why is it that people who spend big money investing into aftermarket mods for fords and the likes are soo expensive wheras the japs can get the same sort of thing for s**t less... thats the main reason that JMM dont get as much business as they probably should (that and they customer service but i cant take sides)

cost it because the parts are made in much lower volume, and there arent sweatshops in china pumping out falcon gear.

JMM are good and get results but they are bloody expensive, where as RPD get good results and are cheaper. after sales service is also more reputable with RPD where as i have heard quite a few bad things about JMM

i think we need to do something about the whole sweatshop thing here with falcon parts. sorta like a work for the dole program, but where they make parts instead. do u happen to know the webby at all??

lol. well u cant have it cos i already called dibs on it.

well at 162rwkw, you got more than i do and u aint that far away considering what he has done to it to get it to where it is. so what have ya done to get that sorta power?? i estimate mine would do 130 at the most on the dyno near me cos its a new 1.

Dont get me wrong, I havent seen any RPD gear in action, im sure its great stuff 2, but just after seeing brendons XR and knowing all the time they have put into working up E-series makes me wanna keep on going back there,

yeah im still tossing up where to go cos i want to get the internal work done while the engine is still relativly being run in (it has just under 121000 on the clock) i was looking at the intake pipe and the DEV3 cam from there. do u think the cam needs to be dyno's to work or just setting the timimg will be enough to warrant an increase cos forkin over another 500 atleast for tuning is pretty big espec when ya only got a limited budget

yes, they put alot of work into brendans car, because brendan is jims son. Theres no doubt in my mind that JMM stuff is good, but there customer relations are absolutely rock bottom. I very much doubt you would get the same service and quality brendan did.

I've never dealt with more unprofessional people in my life. I ordered my JMM DEV5 package, $3k worth of gear, and 3 months later i actually got it in the post.

And then theres the incident where JMM royaly f**k me when I tried to sell that package to an AU owner, But thats another story all together, if you must know what happened have a search through off topic, its in there somewhere.
