I honestly can't recall the ambient. Sorry. It was done in third. It was done in bay area December so I'm assuming high 60s.

If this happens to the eBay ICs, you are SOL.

eBay and PayPal have systems in place if there are problems. Fortunately in my case the Magestic IC was properly packaged with sufficient dunnage to protect in shipping.

The picture of the IC reminded me of the scene from Ace Ventura Pet Detective, "UPS delivery".

Cudos on the customer service you received. Sounds like a stand up manufacture.

I'm not saying it's a bad piece of kit or that you couldn't eventually achieve satisfaction if you received a faulty unit, just that there would be some additional delays, cost, and stress. I mean it's a hunk of metal with no moving parts. If I were going to take a risk on an off brand item it would be one of these or a down pipe. There just wasn't much data on Magic (besides a hair dryer LOL) when I picked up the IE and for $720 all in on Black Friday. There is no way I'd pay the $900+$40 shipping they want for it new.

Mine arrives Thursday. Fingers crossed. Up until recently it’s been in the mid to upper 80’s in Central Florida. Can you say heat soak and timing retard?

I learned from my Scion days. If its something I couldn't make myself with a reasonable amount of resources then I'll pay that cost.

I've had an 90$ downpipe for 3 years and replacing it this summer as the joint piece is worn after 3 NY winters. Great performance, sound.

Had a cheapo open intake , o2 spacer, TMD, leds, etc. Things like tires, suspension, and ecu things I'm willing to pay that extra bit due to the inherent risk and benefits. I'll be getting this IC next month along with the charge pipes. If it goes right 470 for all of it together. Thats $400 freed up for other things like gas, rent, and black panther posters lol. It's a fun time.
