Hey strangers, I'm getting ready to replace my US '82 924T's WUR. Is SpecialTAuto in Texas still the place to go? Any other suppliers out there?

I had my 931 WUR rebuild by those guys: http://www.cisflowtech.com/
I was and still happy with the service and result. It came back looking like new.

I replaced my WUR with a adjustable fuel pressure regulator. Never looked back!

The last time I used John at Special T it took forever to get back. Then I found out he isn't doing them in house, he sends them to some company in California to have them done. Good enough job but a pain.

The last WUR and metering head I had done I sent to CIS Flowtech and the service and turn time was fantastic. Time will tell if it last and is good internally but so far so good. Not cheap, but what is these days...

Best job I have had BOTH my fuel distributor AND WUR rebuilt was from Fuel Injection Corp .
They did a much better and faster job than Special T.

They were priced better also. Highly recommend.
