In short we should start seeing a lot of these shipping now at much shorter intervals. We should be able to turn each "wave" over for shipping to the GB participants within 1 day.

Just as a further update we have all of the extra bits anodized and ready for the silicone to arrive. We also opted for very high end marine grade SS316 hose clamps (with long inner "tails") as these help protect the hose from damages that are found by using the standard worm clamps.

Update: Anyone who paid BEFORE August 25th at 7:00PM CST will have their product ship out by this Friday. If you are unsure if this is you, simply see when you sent the payment and see if you sent it before this time and you will find out (ie. if you sent at 6:55pm CST you will be shipped, if you sent at 7:02pm CST you will not be shipped). Or be patient and see if you receive a tracking # by Friday. If not either, then you will be a part of the subsequent waves (which we expect will start coming in quickly now). Believe me, it is my hope to get these all out there ASAP!

Thanks,
Rob

I suppose those of us, that have purchased more than 1 set, will have to wait for the next batch?
Unfortunately 3 different payments, on 3 different days were made.


fuel injection is cool, but i'd rather be blown!

It will be based on the initial payment (for the few out there who decided to buy more than 1 set).

The first wave is due in tomorrow so we should be shipping on Thursday or Friday at the latest.

Thanks,
Rob

2) Next wave is expected to ship in around 10 days. Quantity is unknown at this time. Hoping for much larger one obviously.

Thanks,

How do I connect my DV piping, do we get another fitting instead of the plug shown on the pictures?

From my understanding the fitting is under the plug.

These inlets are no nonsense. They have it all covered. If you have a BOV, cool, just install them as is. If you have diverters, cool, remove the recirc caps and connect your hose into the adapters.

Bingo. It is all very intuitive when they are in hand.

What filters are you guys going with? I run aFe stg2 DCI but not sure they will work with these inlets.
Suggestions besides BMS DCI? What size should one be looking for..?

See post #1 for all details and information or the post above for pictures and payment information. The inlets are 2.25" at the air box end and taper to 1.75" at the turbo end, the only thing that makes sense for 99% of the N54 consumer base.

As for the timeline it is as soon as the vendor sends us the product and it is your turn in line to ship it. The wait is the price you pay for the best, most versatile, and overall well thought out silicone inlets that exist for the cheapest price ($300 fully equipped).

Thanks,
Rob

Can I sell off my set to a new prospect so they don't have to wait in line and they can take my spot which should be the nest wave?
