Yes.

Please, please, PLEASE give us an update. I'm starting to get worried.



Adam, I know that $400 is not a lot of money to some people, but it is to me. I understand that you needed the money upfront in order to get the project rolling, but at the same time, everyone who sent you that money in good faith would appreciate updates a bit more frequently. Let us know something soon please.

Yes. Any kind of update would be good. But I prefer an update such as:

"The headers have been shipped and since it took so much longer than expected they will be free."

I like that kind.

LOL!

Well, I'm not asking for anything for free but I think since 3/4 of the forum members have paid for a header that we should at least be updated frequently.

ESPECIALLY since it's taking longer than expected.0

I think paypal only has a 30 day money back fraud gaurantee which (in my case) has expired by now.

Not saying you are being fraudulent Adam, but if someone got tired of waiting they couldn't even get their money back.

paypal will evaluate any case no matter how old. Just dont like my money to be screwed with. Pictures or anything or just start shipping what you have thats complete on first come first serve basis. You have to have at least 2 complete ones. You dont have us chomping at the bit anymore to get these now you have us just annoyed that we shelled out 400 bucks and have nothing to see at all. Not one finished product not one shipped out. Keep us dreaming man.

Email response from Adam today:

"I'll try to get to the forums today or tonight and update
everyone.
I'm sorry about the delays, I have only one welder and the
order ended up being twice the number as planned.
I'll probably get the dyno and photos online over the
weekend, I just have to get to my ISP and pay my accout so I
can post the video and images.
Thanks for the heads up,
Adam Chant

I'm really sorry about the delays. I'm doing everything I can to get product out.
I have one employee and it isn't me. I have a regular full time job still and will for a long time. Manufacturing is done in a group of tasks that end with a final product. Since only one person does a thing at a time no individual item will be finished until all of them are. Flanges are cut, pipes are bent, pipes are cut, pipes are part assembled, everything is sent out for polish (out of my control in time frame), pipes are assembled and welded to flanges, final assembly is completed, hand polishing and finishing is completed and then they are packaged to be shipped out.

A LOT of work goes into the production of the header and when only one person is doing it things take a long time. I'm frustrated like everyone else with how long it's taking, but I can't yet afford to take any time off to help my guy.

I'll have photos of a header and hopefully the dyno results this weekend. I'll see about shipping out the first group next week when they are back from polish, but I have to still inspect them.

The exhaust flange was clocked wrong and didn't bolt to the down pipe correctly. I could have sent it off like that and fought with everyone on shipping them all back, but that would have been the wrong thing to do.

Again I'm really sorry and hope you all understand that this kind of stuff happens, it's just that most of the time you don't know about it because you are not of the first in line to get a new product.

If you have individual questions then please PM me and I'll check back online when I get home later tonight.

Thanks, thats all i'm asking for. Just an update. Not the product in my hands right now. I understand custom fabrication takes a long time. Especially with headers. A cat-back exhaust system could be slapped together in a matter of hours.

ok so that means you will start shipping next week as the orders came in? If even one person got their header and said whatever about it that would still mean someone got it and we would all be happy.
