This same situation happned to me when ordering an intake. I waited and waited and even paid a special shipping cost to get it here in 2 days...Still nothing...As you can imagine...Im was pissed lol...I didnt get one email saying they were out of stock...nothing...But, I must vouge that Nick was very helpful in getting my parts to me ASAP. The filter also had a flaw in it and it had ripped too early at the base..(result of tightening it too much around the pipe...whoops? didnt say anyting in the directions though!!) Nick was willing to send me a brand new one with his words of wisdom something of "...lol...dont tighten it so hard you sweat...' lol. haha, very helpful...Dont worry, if all else fails, change performance distributors.

So keep stuff like that in mind.

what i would have told you...

also keep in mind.. most of these parts are not mass produced... let alone made in the US...

Besides, you just ordered it Saturday. You had an email updating your order status the next business day after your order. You can cancel your order if you don't feel like waiting right?

Agree with xaamotto here....

This email was hurriedly sent the first business day after your order, which is exceptionally prompt response by any standards. There have been instances with other vendors of incredibly poor customer service, some of which I experienced myself and took a $700 order elsewhere (some of it to GenuineSaab) because I couldn't get in touch with this other company at all.

Getting something in a week because it's not immediately available is pretty par for the course.

When in doubt, call. I've called GenuineSaab maybe 5 or 6 times and Nick has usually answered and in almost every case, once he gets talking he's hard to stop! Had you called, they might have been able to tell you immediately that the powdercoating would take a couple of days...The same is probably true for Eric and Chris at MP, and for some of the other vendors. The Web is sometimes not as expedient, or as informative, as one phone call.

The main problem is that everyone likes the Silver powder coat parts far better than black. The problem is that it takes longer to get silver. This batch was 3 weeks. And we ran out. We are waiting on the truck to get back from the powder coater today or in the morning. Others parts like the NA intake pipe we only keep a couple in stock. They are not a huge seller. Some of the parts we get from SaabUS are odd for example we are only getting 2 of the Viggen antenna plug a week. No orders are billed until they ship! Remember we have 4 phone lines all toll free. There are 4-5 people around 8-6 central time to answer the phone and your questions.

just incase anyone else is wondering, me and citron figured it out

the inner diameter of the resonator box (which i assume is the same size as the intake pipe) is 65mm. therefor you need the tornado ki-65.

I have the tornado ki-65 and it DOES NOT FIT! I repeat, I had to squish it so much just to fit in my custom tube and by then it wasn't even functioning correctly, and when I bought the taliaferro tube and tried to move it to there it didn't fit either...It's lying around here somewhere...

so therefor, is the taliaferro tube have a different inner diameter than the stock airbox? also, it says it should fit anywhere from 1mm less to 3mm more... how close was it? maybe they make a 60..

The Tornado has to be the greatest product ever! Well, second to Didi 7 that is.

Of course "Didi 7 is one of the best all-purpose cleaners on the market today."

It's TOO BIG. I had to cram it in my other tube, but that was before the air mass meter so it didn't even do it's job properly...

I can measure it sometime...tomorrow...thursday...who knows...need to get under my hood before Saabs at Carlisle and clean her up...
