It's a real bummer for sure, hopefully they will stand behind the products. I have only bought a couple things from them, but lots of people have good luck there.

I like the set-up for my rig. Are you looking for part numbers, concept or pics?

Yes, but look one up at rockauto.com for a 2003 vette, much cheaper. Or google 2003 corvette fuel filter and go to shopping, that works also.

They are the same filter/regulator combos, but different manufactures.

NAPA is FIL 3737, WIX is 33737 and AC Delco is GF822.

Buy it where ever it is cheapest.

Gotya, some links when you pull them up just say filter, others say combo. That got me a bit concerned. Thanks!

[QUOTE=John D;2537077]It's a real bummer for sure, hopefully they will stand behind the products. I have only bought a couple things from them, but lots of people have good luck there.QUOTE]

Eric from Novak called me today. He was confused as to what happened and why the mounts didn't fit right, he's thinking maybe a mix up at shipping. He was QUITE upset that we didn't call him first before making adjustments to the mounts. Like I told him, time is money, i sent him an email as soon as I knew there was an issue. Altho he called me promptly he was a little bit accusational and his story about when the "new design" came out was not at all what I was told when I placed my order. He requested a call from Kevin who tried to call but he was gone for the weekend. After a 20 minute conversation ,some good, some rubbed me wrong, he mentioned a refund. I told him that people speak highly of his company....the mounts hopefully were just a packaging issue and urged him to note on their products when they are actually am outsourced brand. Yes Hag gar, mine arre Sanderson headers. We will see.......

Radiator and surge showed up yesterday, waiting on the harnass from Jims. Kevins getting together all the fuel pup, reg, lines on his end. Also picking up the gauges .

Once the harness is here and all the wiring is done will start her up for a minute. Then put the front end back together. Next week should be busy busy

Hi Becky,

We did some research and found a possible culprit. It appears that Sanderson has had variations in their headers. They are apparently not building to a strict jig. As such, we're going to drop them in favor of a new design. I am sorry for your trouble and that of your mechanic. Please do note that we've refunded you entirely for the mounts. This should have already shown up on your card statement.

Please follow up if there is anywhere we can be of help here and again, pardon us for your trouble. We're fixing it expeditiously.


Eric at Novak
435.753.2513



This was the email i got back from Novak. I personally don't think it was the headers that were the issue. Regardless, Kevin redesigned the mounts so they worked and Novak refunded my $$. I guess no harm done.

At least they stand behind their products, even if they lie while they are doing it. I agree with you, story sounds fishy, the outcome seems acceptable though.

i saw the mounts after kevin put them in and they were definetly wrong.they have adjustments on them and he was thinking maybe they would work.but obviously they didn't.they should be the same on each side and there's were off set.
well the money you saved will go towards kevins labor.

Glad to hear they have great customer service even if the part itself was lacking to put it nicely.
