I do not have a set yet either, but that was my choice. I didnt feel like editing my signature before putting it in there. To my understanding, there was a first come, first serve for the silver ones(group buy). Those that didnt want to wait on the additional colors got the option of silver. I got an email from Gavin asking if I wanted the silver or wanted to wait for the black ones to finish up. I chose to wait.

If you check the FB page there is another video posted of a different car and set up. It sounds pretty good if you ask me.

To the rest of the people asking for dynos. I will come through with a dyno as soon as the black set are finished and I get them installed.

I just checked out that video, its hard to tell if it sounds good or not. I did see that hes trying to find a 335i to race with, and that was like 9 days ago so hopefully we can get a video of that soon.

Best believe, i've made my point across to Gavin that i'm upset about the service thus far... via public posts on here and personal email... i think there's some misconception about when you take someones' money, you owe them a product -within a timely manner- and if not that, then FREQUENT updates, answering EACH and EVERY email about questions, concerns, complaints... it's simply GOOD BUSINESS.

As for the "original ship date" i remember when he was pushing for the group buy back in June/July 2011 and for everyone to expect a pre-christmas delivery... obviously that never happened and we're just now getting a few shipments after 1.5years after dropping a decent about of money on them.

I just hope he comes through with the WHOLE deal he promised me (i.e. O2 Sim included)... good thing i saved all the emails and PMs! ^__^
I think you might have your time line a little stretched, we started this in the end of September on 2011, so 1.5 years is a little off. And I know your upset that the black ones are still being done, but they come in batches after they are hand made, and the 3 installs ive seen from people (2 e92's and a Z4) all fit and sound perfect, and yes come with O2 sims also - like they should and were said to be. There is no reason to raise meaningless speculation on weather or not your going to get something you ordered - ive still never taken someone money for nothing and while the headers took a ton of time to design and make perfect - I could have rushed it and made a crap product that doesn't fit like some of the other offerings out there. That's not how I work, nor is it how I want the quality of parts we make to be. So yes, I fully admit it took longer then it was supposed too, but its also a design that no one has come up with, hand welded and machined and ceramic coated.

The black ones are going to be done here soon, and I appreciate your patience in waiting for them, I'm doing all I can to wrap them up ASAP for you so you can see that our product surpasses anything else and will deliver power and fun to your car.

I have been working on the supercharger, so I have not yet personally had the time to dyno the headers - because I would have to uninstall the S/C kit to do so and that's a big step backwards at this point given the state we are at with the S/c. But we do have a car getting dyno'd coming up next week I believe when they come in to install a set.

The car is back down for tuning and more runs, and more info will be available next week on both subjects.

Here is the video from yesterday of a set installed in an e92, with an X-pipe and Dual Exhaust (I dont know the exact muffler he is running, waiting for confirmation)



Sounds good from this end

Thanks for chiming in Gavin. I cant wait to see the gains from the headers, if they're decent hp/$ then I'll definitely be ordering a set.

i've moved on from speculating i won't receive a product [at all]... its just 'when?'
Thanks for the update though.
