    What I'm a do. Try to get another one from the seller. If he doesn't take responsibility, I'll do what I can to fix it. Or run it as is..

    Good question. How if it was on transit. He has to take Responsability for that?
    Not his fault. But why would I lose my money when I bought something n I expect to receive
    It one piece..
    And idk if it was on transit because the box is not damaged at all.
    It seems like the TB was dropped or something

    i dont think the seller would drop it and then put the tb plus the broken part in the box haha

    if it broke in transit and it was wrapped well and boxed and it still broken there is NO WAY i would run that tb on my car, the walls are TO thin imho...a bump or anything could break a diff part off of it

    again this is just my take on it

    Hey who knows lol. He probably did it or probably not.
    If u look at the package. It seems imposible that it got damage in the box.
    I have no idea how it happened.

    Broken TB?

    As a machinist for over 35 years, the recommended fix, IF you could find someone with a lathe or a mill, the TB could be faced back the small amount thats broken, which would remove the broken area, AND get the face of the TB back to thicker metal, and NO worries about anything breaking off.

    BTW If it was damaged in transit how is that the sellers fault? doesnt seem fair to demand a refund from him/her. I would be talking to the delivery service that shipped it.
    And the shipping company will only deal with the person that made the delivery. Which is the seller. He would have to file a claim and deal with the shipper. Not likely and time consuming.
    I would file a claim with ebay "item not as advertised".

    Replace it or get a cheap velocity stack and insert it.

    Good....I see you replaced it. Good man. In the future anybody who chips, cracks or screws up a TB you can get a velocity stack and get along quite well.
    I do not recommend a stack for "enhancements" but they repair broken, chipped TB's very well and a lot cheaper than a new TB.
