    Gen 3 4 Oil Lines Standard Version

    Just a heads up, I actually have (2) G3 and (2) G4 sets of our standard Black/Stainless/Red Direct-Port ORB oil lines in stock. These have been hit-or-miss on inventory for quite some time, and are the "Gold Standard" of Oil Lines.
    They are 419/Set.

    Yes, that means they are more expensive than most competitors... but there is a very good reason: No JIC fittings, no adapters, no exposed Stainless braid, and NO CHINESE CRAP.


    We also have our top-shelf oil lines available, with quick-disconnect fittings... but they are a good bit pricier.

    Did the market die?

    I couldn't keep these things in stock, and now they sit?

    It must be that "I'll just wait until winter" time of the year again.

    Well, I wouldn't advise it unless you like waiting until spring too! Ha

    The quick-disconnect fittings version on the engine side is a lot easier to install, correct? I need to order a set for when the inevitable happens.

    If the oil pan is on, QD is definitely easier. With a lift and the right tools or oil pan off, the standard version isn't really that hard, but takes more "fraction of a turn at a time" wrench time and contortions, ha.

    LOL, yeah... that thread pretty much sums up the current state of the Viper market. The vendors support, recommend, and package, and then we get shopped at the big stores we have no hope of competing with.

    Its a fantastic arrangement... and the #1 reason why half the market is the blind leading the blind these days. Many vendors have said "Screw this" and bailed, and the rest wont give you ice in winter as they are sick of being used by the new crop of owners for information as the sales go to everyone but the guy who actually put in the work.

    Personally, short of our core products and actual services... I couldnt care less about supporting half the stuff out there these days. Why bother wasting my time? The new owners can figure it out, and call me when it blows up to put it back together. LOL

    Dan maybe you could try something like "Viper advise by the minute" kind of like those phone sex deals. Then you could charge a fixed rate per minute. Your time is money, right?

    Man... if you only knew how bad it actually is. I literally spend hours and hours helping some people on the phone, email, whatever because it happens to be in the wheelhouse of what I specialize in, and then they turn right around and buy everything from someone else. I have even gotten the "oh, well I didn't even know you SOLD that kind of stuff!" line... really? How in the holy hell do they think I know so much about the product, or why would I be wasting my time when I could do other things that pay the bills...?

    The automotive market has a tendency to beat you down for exactly these reasons. The information has more value than the components, but the components are the only part of the equation you make money on.

    Next time someone asks me for information, I am just going to save the time and tell them to call summit racing with all of their questions.

    What other industry even allows asking how to fix things over the phone so you can shop them online?
