Anyone thinking of upgrading nozzles?

If anyone is interested in getting bigger nozzles let me know, if I buy 8 sets we can get a way better deal then if you buy them one set at a time. I can get 30%, 75%, 100% or 150%, about $300 a set if I can get enough guys together. The prices I can find for one set is $600-900.

PM me if interested

Think about this for a moment.

"IF" most injector builders are sourcing the injector tips from Poltron, that puts the mark up at 50%+. CRAZY!!!

Its a 100% markup, elite charges 200%, but im sure 100% markup is pretty standard in most retail business.

Edit: to be fair elite offers more then just nozzles for $900,

^^^ agreed, that seems high!


Here is why it makes sense to me...

A: it could theoretically take a little more time/effort to change them (even though most of us that do it know it doesn't really) but labor could account for a little bit of the markup

B: no reason to spend extra money on materials, invest more into the product, and not make more of a return. This is a little bit more of the markup

C: The one I think is most important... what if something goes wrong? Often times the manufacturers off ZERO warranty for anything (ask me how i know). So if something goes wrong and you need to buy another set of nozzles you have to come out of pocket (getting the manufacturer to do anything is slim and takes time) so they have to throw a little extra in there for insurrance




But for someone like me it just makes sense to add the nozzles myself
