Yes. They are backlogged on everything. They are working on multiple shop cars, trying to help Jared finish his RWD conversion, and fabbing turbo kits/miscellaneous parts all at the same time...and I don't think they have many other people working other than the two of them.

They generally take some time for parts, but I bought this one off Jared's car, so he just sent it in to be powdercoated and sent it back to me. I got it in a week or two.

I had to wait on couplers for a while, but got those months ago. Was looking for an upper SVT mani portion but wasn't finding any. I just went and bought a brand new one from Steve @ Tousley for a great deal and got another few set of spark plugs to go with it. Probably change plugs with every oil change too. I have 6 sets total now. Should last me a looong time.

It's not easy!

After I finish with the sets of HVAc swaps, I'm making a bunch of vent pods! They will be at least $60, as 3-4 hours go into each one.
