I can't speak for their quality as I have never done business with lifepixel.

I can only relate that when I saw that their E-PL1 mod procedure involved removing the dust reduction unit permanently, I twice wrote them asking if there was any way to avoid destroying such a useful feature. I never received a reply to my query.

I think removing the dust reduction unit is a deliberate choice, maybe related to the thickness of the glass that they are using, or maybe because that way they can work with a limited amount of different internal filters instead of making every one exactly the size of the internal IR blocker (which would be more expensive, or result in less profit). Maybe they don't want to explain all the tricky details ... They make the same choice with some recent APS-C DSLRs.
