Same experience here. I emailed asking if they had any idea when they would ship but have not received a response. Frustrating.
+1 exactly, no contact.

I had to bug the guy. His name is Omar. I eventually got it about 2 weeks later. I think I went on the contact form on the website and got the email from there.

I finally received mine, took a month. Glad I did not pay for quicker shipping, would have been a waste.

As far as the product, I have not installed it yet; however, it seems to be of good quality. The screws that came with it are cheap though and not the right size. I bought some other screws on Amazon that a *********** member posted about and these should be better suited.

Got mine today and installed it. Obviously Vader Solutions shipped mine quickly, YMMV. The adapter and supplied screws fit fine, the supplied hose reached my BoV. My sensor was gunk free but others have reported needing to clean it. Turning the sensor around makes it fit better but judging by the OP's pictures it will fit both ways.

I used this barb
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It wouldn't thread all the way down, (same as the OP's picture) despite there being plenty of threads visible when looking into the adapter. Seems to be fine though. BoV response is noticeably improved!

If I were to say anything negative. It would be the time it took him to ship one out. He is slow at least for me. But the product is great and will save you a ton of hassle.

...for the folks that said the screws were too long and they bought screws on Amazon? Is there a size or link that y'all could post?

By your post youre saying you received the adapter and hose from Vader but it did not come with the NPT fitting thus you had to buy from amazon?

Vader is charging an extra $30 just for the hose?

The description on their site says: "Include Fitting and Silicone Vacuum Line?" yes/no


I selected yes for $89.95 because I wanted everything, but like you, I just got the hose and no nipple. If thats not a simple mistake by vader, then i think we got rooked

I'm not sure. I had the nipple already because I was going to tap my manifold originally. I see that it does say it should be included on his website. It doesn't say if it should be SS or the cheap bronze type you can get at your local HD/Lowes. Did you contact him?

Any updates on this? The extra 30 only includes the vacuum hose despite it saying "Include fitting and silicone vacuum line"?

mine didn't come with the nipple or a line, i bought it at the same time as my hks bov so i already had a larger diameter hose so i didn't sweat it, i also went to the local specialty hardware store for a barbed hose fitting that worked, it arrives as a bare block an some long screws.

Thanks. Guess I'm better off piecing the hardware together myself.

it's def cheaper drilling and tapping the manifold yourself but that is kinda permanent and a little scary this is an expensive but dummy proof alternative... well kinda dummy proof i still put it on my chargepipe instead of manifold the first time.
