    Jesus!!!!! went now to purchase an exhaust manifold and now the date says 6-17, what in the world is wrong with you guys!!! can't you guys just make enough to completely fill demand? I'm not sure if i can wait until 6-17, that's a hell of a long time. You guys are forcing me to go with another brand because 2 months is just to much of a wait, i could accept a car that is specially being build 2 months but a manifold, cmon guys! you are going to loose sales

    have you talked to them? they have gotten a new company that's doing the casting for them. When I spoke to them a couple of weeks ago everything is on track for ETA on their site check mid may for availability to order. COVID is adding delays and I'm sure the new bill in the USA is not helping. Hopefully once this next batch is in and QC is good they'll start flowing more

    Heck CPE has stopped making cast manifolds during this time.

    I appreciate your frustration especially when it comes to needing parts on a time line, I'm dealing with it myself however getting angry at a vendor that's trying to pump parts out and refine the casting process does nothing to improve supply. Yes unfortunately lack of supply means people will be buying tubular manifolds from other vendors rather than nice cast manifolds.

    Imagine worldwide automobile manufacturers who can't make cars because of no microchips.

    Wow. Yes we are losing sales, we are very aware of this. We took them off line from people being pissed they were not in stock after ordering them. Flip side is your post above, it is a no win for anyone.

    In a perfect world 100% of the parts would be perfect coming out of casting but that is not the case. Sometimes the batch comes out with a better yield than expected, other times you throw everything away due to defects which we would not sell.

    We have 4 people available on telephones at 1-360-260-2675 and are available from 9am-12pm, 1pm-5pm PST Monday to Thursday and 9am-12pm on Fridays. Feel free to call us.
