Likely they're just too cheap to have someone cut out the parts with a lazer or waterjet machine. They're all of 75 miles from this company: Online Metal Laser Cutting | OSH Cut - https://www.oshcut.com/ who could easily bring back the parts quality.
Going to fix the 3.0 or going 3.4?
Yeah they were too cheap to send me the hardware that was supposed to be included. I was lucky to get the plates after 8 months. Some people haven’t gotten parts after a year.
Don’t really have any desire to drive the truck with the 22re any more and no desire for a V6. My buddy is wrapping up his 1uz swap right now so I’ll hopefully have the time this fall/winter to get a V8 shoved in
