Hi, Bill. Not sure what you're referring to. Please PM me if you have any questions about our catalog and other makes/models outside of MINI!

I think hope is just lost for this getting fixed and coming back out. I have sent them emails and nothing. No response here either.

I just heard from Josh. All is well and testing is moving along so looks like there is great hope.

At the end of July Josh told me the same thing and that they should ship between the middle and end of August. Been waiting over three months for the replacement part. Trying to remain patient. I received the original unit the last of March. I've still got my fingers crossed, because I'm sure it'll be worth the wait.

Hey, gentlemen.

First, thank you very much for the patience on this.

Here's the scoop. The intakes, as designed, work perfectly. We're currently running two first-articles in long term testing and after a collective 4k+ miles, there are no CELs, and all is well. Performance is cranking where it should be.

While we manufacture our exhausts in-house in our HQ just outside of Philadelphia, PA, and while the R&D on all intakes is also done in-house the actual laying of the carbon fiber is done via a few different Carbon Fiber vendors. Needless to say, the current vendor has not gone so well.

Long story short, the last batch came back outside of our quality standards. Although mathematically everything checks out, and what we're not happy about may be something inconsequential to many, it's just not acceptable to us.

Bottom line, we're working as hard and fast as we can to remedy this, but not at the expense of the quality of the product. I completely understand the frustration on this (believe me as I am with all of you), but felt that a bit of additional insight on this might help provide some context around the backup. I don't know timing as of yet, but I will 100% keep you all in the loop.

Questions, hit me (preferably by email so I get immediate notification).
