Updated TIV lifters- All previous lifter customers read here

Post by MASSIVE TYPE IV » Wed Sep 07, 2005 11:47 pm

Okay guys..
We are constantly trying to make lifters better and we have yet again done this..

The lifters we have had in the store to date have been working great. We have had two failures out of about 120 sales, so thats not too bad and I feel its acceptable these days.

I have been playing with some new lighter weight lifters and each and every person who has bought cams/lifters from us will be getting a set of these in the mail with a note in the next few days. If you have already assembled your engine and its already been fired up, simply slap the return label on them and mail them back.

If your engine is assembled, but not yet been fired up then swap these lifters with your originals and send the originals back to us so we can complete the newest processes to them to further enhance them so we can get them back in stockand ready for re-distribution. The return label and postage will be included with the replacement lifters as well as a return envelope.

These new lifters are FORTY GRAMS LIGHTER than the originals and are a direct replacement in every other regard.

I want to stress that the lifters we have been selling are fine and are performing as tested/expected, but these newest lifters are even better, even harder and even lighter. These days a lifter can never be good enough and I want to provide the best I can all the time.

The new lifters are 65.00 more per set but all our previous customers won't be getting charged a dime for them- Merry Christmas... Just send your originals back to us!

Expect these late next week in your mailbox!!!! Call me/ email me with questions if you have any.

Now thats what I call a dedicated professional.

Most companies would just say "Hay, we got these new lifters that are even better! Come buy a set!"

You just earned some business from me Jake.
Soon as I get a Type4 to work on that is. :D

The lifters we have been selling since February were based from an OEM lifter. They weigh 140 grams. The newer lifters are a 2 piece design and that allows the inside of the lifter to be further modified, reducing weight.

Jake,

Is this for the Type4Store customers or for your engine customers (kit and turnkey)?

Type 4 store customers since opening day, Feb 1, 2005...

This does not cover complete engine customers (from any time period)or kit customers prior to Feb 1, 2005.

Thats really amazing! Does this apply to both the "Reground Parkerized Stock Lifters" and the Reground/Modified Lifters,New" from the catalog?
