Gotcha thanks for the clarification. I'll be buying one once my OEM one hits around 20k miles.
good to know.It wasn't the material. A few of them had faulty internal check valves. It wouldn't allow the oil out which would then cause pressure inside to build and when the piston would get rammed in, the pressure would get so high that the housing would crack. All of those issues were addressed and the valves were changed a bit to prevent that from happening again.
welcome to k20a.org and thank you for registering.Sorry for bringing this thread back from the dead. Just changed my 2nd oem tct in less than 2 months. Stock cams 94lb dual valve springs from supertech with titanium retainers. Teeth got blown out again in the middle of the piston. Is the general consensus to do go with the hybrid racing TCT? I know this oem one is going to blow out on me as well so i want to be ready this next time. Any information or questions is very welcome. Thank you for your time.
