What? Ill be the first one to admit that UUC stuff is over priced but everything I have gotten from them fit like OEM and worked better then OEM.
I dont mind the high prices when the quality is up to par with oem if not better.

Have you installed anything UUC on your car?

Hard too say, I've always been told the magic number is 500 miles. Correct me if I'm wrong.


Ravij: A comprehensive review (long) is what we all want. Looking forward to that review !

Depends on your driving style etc , u can do it in 200 miles if u go out solely to break in the clutch or 500 miles mixed driving .

What I wonder is its durability , osgiken survives a roll night without any problems it is like 6 60-150 mph rolls with max 5 mins in between em , that is if it is only 2 cars involved if it can stand that kind of abuse and has smoother engagement I will definetly buy one

Grats, enjoy your car. I'm happy for you. If you find yourself with enough time. Please google search UUC. Read all the reviews and PM me your overall understanding of the product you are supporting. Along with the masses that will support your statement. After all that, ask the satisfied customers you have installed UUC products on their cars. To write a detail review about the product. You can't imagine the fitment/shipping/brought back issues. That UUC products have been involved in. Can't stop myself.. you realize uuc uses oem parts in their kits? Doesn't flow well with your argument. Maybe you want to take some time? To come back to me on all of this.

i am a satisfied UUC customer since 2003 and never had an issue.

UUC under drive pullies (perfect fitment)
UUC gas/brake pedals (perfect fitment)
UUC floor mats (perfect fitment)
UUC Sway Bar (perfect fitment)
UUC Strut Bars (perfect fitment)
UUC Exhaust (perfect fitment)
UUC BBK (perfect fitment)
UUC Front Control Arm Bushing (only perfect fitment if using OE control arms)
UUC Tranny Mounts (love them)


so how about you? How many UUC products have you installed or are you just basing your negative views on other's people experience?

I have only installed UUC camber plates, control arms and DSSR.. but they were all very good! Can't remember his name but the guy in UUC emailed me back very quickly for a custom clutch set up too.. And all the stuff shipped to me without any delay! I would hope whoever bashes them have some real evidence to back it up. I will not be surprised to find some people having bad experiences with UUC's mistakes.. But hopefully whoever comes up to say bad words again better have some of his own evidences

I have not personally had any issues with their products, but both Trevor and I have had issues with severe delays getting said products and unresponsive customer service.

so how about you? How many UUC products have you installed or are you just basing your negative views on other's people experience?
UUC clutch pedal bushings (perfect fitment)
UUC Sway Bar (almost perfect fitment with aftermarket coilovers)
UUC Front Strut Bar (almost perfect fitment with aftermarket coilovers)
UUC Front Control Arm Bushing (didnt work for me using OEM CA's)
UUC Tranny Mounts (love them aswell)
UUC Stage 2 Flywheel/Clutch(didnt really like this as the clutch keept slipping when trying to burnout, also flywheel recieved had imbalance in it)
UUC SSK + DSSR for 5speed(Perfect fitment and feel)
UUC SSK M3 (Really bad fitment as i had to grind down a bushing , feels perfect though)

All in all id give uuc a 8/10 rating, they need to improve their QC before sending things out to get a 10/10.

Im also willing to pay for superior products

UUC is OK. Their BBKs are garbage..at least the Wilwood version.

Too bad there's no non-M 6SP version...

Noticed how he didn't answer my question.... obviously he never purchased any UUC products....and no I wont do all that research and get back to you. Using their products for over 7 years without a issue is all the research I need to do.
