Default BTR morel 5315 lifters

I just received my Morel 5315 lifters from BTR. For $205.00 shipped I think this is the best deal going, especially the way they are packaged. Well worth the money.

Well that beats how mine came from that Speed place in Colorado.





You might notice there are only 14 lifters. Shipper says its my fault?!
As a resolution he will send the other 2 for $23.

Yea, that's not right, they should be sending you them for free, I almost ordered from them. When I went to place the order I would have had to pay an extra 5 dollars to complete the PayPal transaction the way they wanted it done. I then emailed them that I no longer wanted them and they sent me a nasty email stating that the reason I backed out was because I don't have many posts on this site and don't trust them to deliver. Lol, needless to say I will never buy anything from them.

You have the choice from Morel either a Free card board craft box with dividers, industry std, or the clam shell for an up charge. The clam shell is well worth the investment.

On a side note Colorado Speed buys Morel from me so he does carry the product.

Colorado is boxing them up cheaply to save some coin and offer them cheaper then everybody else. I bought a set from Colorado and they came poorly packaged but the lifters were fine. Had I known, I would of bough them from BTR for piece of mind.

Ok, let me state it this way, I have a direct account with Morel. I chose years ago to get my lifter in the clam shells so all my customers that buy from me get their Morel in Clam shells from me.

Now on occasion when Morel runs out of Clams, they will ship in the craft brown boxes. This did happen to me around August of 2015.

You think that they would realize people who are willing to spend the extra coin to upgrade from an ls7 lifter to a Morel, are also willing to pay a little more to have them delivered properly.

The thing is, they don't tell you they come packaged like that. No one knows what they're getting when they order them, they think they're getting like what Brian Tooley sends you.

CO Speed did acknowledge that they order these in bulk and do not have the original packaging to ship in and pass along the savings to us... I ordered the Morel 5315 lifters from them and they arrived in the exact same manner and I was concerned as well...

I think it would be beneficial if CO Speed would simply advise the end customer of the packaging to avoid the internet flaming... My lifters checked out good to the eye... Well see when I fire up the car!

$15, they now advise people that they come blemished in crappy boxes? Well that's good to know, I feel like even less people would order them if they knew that, especially when BTR won't give you the run around and talk **** to you if you ever have a problem with what you ordered. I'm gonna stop now before I get in trouble.
