the plate that rotates to open and close the dump broke off from the bar that it was attached too.

Did they at least replace it for you...

this happened to my mccord too... but when it happened i was trying to close the plate while at wot so that had to put alot of stress on the plate. mccord sent me a new one right away and i attached it with some strong little bolts and a little weld. no problems as of yet.

Re: (BoostedGolf02)

I went through 2 mccord power plates. The design is terrible and the service is comparable. I have even taken the plate apart and it really is poorly designed. Not sure about the QuickTec one though. Good luck.

better weld the through bolts to the rotating member. they are bound to back out.
had my plate come off of the car and called Quick Time right away. Within 20 hours of my call I had a new one with two backups with hardware at my door.
What service! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: (bluanutonu)

I had a mccord...it was junk....same problem as above....the plate fell off....more then once.... one time when i was 8 hours from home

i called them and this was their answer...."our application isnt meant to stand up to the heat of turbo cars".... what?

So I called the guy at quicktime..... he knew who I was from vortex when i discribed my problem with the mccord....."yeah, i saw your thread, their product is a joke!"
long story short....i bought the quicktime....loved it... endedup going with a full 3" TB system and selling the dump.
the guy who i sold it to is now selling it....its posted up here:

Re: (BORA 18T)

I have a minor leak than can be mended evfery so often by using the high temp red silicone paste.
While running the dump open for longer than five minutes or so I do get a CEL. It goes out after closing the dump and driving the car for a while. At least 30 miles or so and after turning the car on and off at least three times.
Car runs horribly rich while CEL is blazing my face. Huge loss of power. Found that the key to using this item is to only use it for short periods of time. I open the dump to cool the turbo after repeated blasts.
