Hi

I bought a HKS RSK off eBay last week. At least I thought I had.

The seller is adamant it's the HKS Racing induction kit for the FN2 Type R. However, once I'd unpacked the item it doesn't match any photos of the kit that I've seen previously and I'm not convinced that it's the real thing, teh finish to it is very poor.

One end is damaged and looks like it has been cut to fit, however the seller said the damage was by the jubilee clips holding it in place.

I'm in process of trying to return it and get a refund

Any comments welcome.

Thanks
Paul

Definatly not an HKS.. HKS has "HKS" engraved on it. that looks like someone had fun with a steel tube.

Send it back straight away. Also the HKS comes with blue samco connecting things and and HKS cone filter.

Yeah, I thought as much.

Got some advice from Caroline at Sumopower earlier, when I was pricing a real one. And from what she said it sounded fake.

Luckily bought it using paypal so in process of sorting it out.

Love the car by the way especially the cup spoilers

Interesting comment, looking back through the eBay sellers items he actually bought an AEM pipe last year.

Thanks for all the comments pretty much confirmed what I thought.

Hopefully get refund. Ordering a genuine one tomorrow from sumopower to go with flashpro bought last week.

Definatley an AEM bro, I had one myself!

That damage is not from a jubilee clip either, that has been knocked about to fit the FN2 as the fitting is slightly different.

Good luck with the refund.
