pre ego 8

From what I have heard from quite a few people is that you shouldnt buy a pre 08 ego because of "QEV issues", is this something that is really a big issue? I know ego's are absolute work horses so I was surprised so many people were against purchasing and ego 6 or 7. Any input or opinions is appreciated.

I used to have on 05 for a long time and didn't have any issues either. Glad to hear, it is mostly non ego owners who I have heard this from so wanted to get some other opinions.

The only struggle is that if you do wind up having a web issue you need to know where to look to get 'em.

That said, I've owned at least one 05 ego since they were released. Like literally, one of the first sold in November 04 and none have ever had a QEV issue. They are workhorses and you can find them at an insane price now.

The only time I've ever have issues with the qev's on 05's and 06's is from previous owners who had no idea what they were doing and ended up cracking the barbs, or overtightening and breaking/ cracking/ stripping out the threads. If you try open heart surgery with a third grade education, bad thing are bound to happen; i.e, qev issues
