Is Bo Engstrom dead, or just really lazy?

I know I'm relatively new to the whole concept of ordering things online, but when you place an order, receive an emailed confirmation of said order, and then send a follow up email, shouldn't the product, you know, arrive at some point. Long story short, some good ol' boy at thesaabsite recommends an Engstrom ECM upgrade, I order it, never here from Engstrom, never get the ECM, and the sale isn't on my CC Bill. So, is the engstrom site still active, or just an online ruin of a once viable business?

hell ya Frank did my car like 3 weeks ago here, and let me tell you it was worth every penny. IF he is going to be tuning there I would say go for it. Kevin I can't wait to see your car get on the dyno, hopefully you can posts some Vids. Any chance your going to be at SOC in VT with it?

PS. Bring Frank some Red Bull and Vodka, he'll be your new best friend .

I had the same problem last spring. I sent multiple emails and left several phone messages (I met Bo and had his business card from an SQR tuning event last year) and even placed an order. Nothing.

I later heard on Saabnet that Bo has returned to his full-time business and has basically gotten out of the Web-based parts stuff.

Paul and Bo Kalinoski, the hosts of the SQR tuning event earlier this month, are also handling SQR inquiries. 978-667-5373.....
