My thought was that they only do a run every so often of this part. What maybe 100 and they probably sit around on shelves for years. So is returning it to get the same crappy piece back. The inline tube picture of the part is definitely a cheaper part than what is on pontiactripower.com put that was taken in 2009. That might be all that is out there now.Then there is no incentive for the manufacturer to clean up its act. My vote is send it back for a refund. Don't enable and promote sub-standard crap.
