*vaguely relevant anecdote*

*i heard this from so and so*

*well one time this company took too long to ship something so i'm afraid that this other unrelated company might do the same thing*

*a guy raped me as a child now i refuse to trust men and only sleep with women*

What is wrong with someone polling people's opinion about a business? I think it is perfectly reasonable for the OP to question if a company was able to deliver on time and when they promised.

I think the question that the OP should be asking is will you get what you ordered and will the parts fit with out modification. I'd rather get something a little late, than have to send the thing back because the O2 sensor bung is in the wrong place.

My last project was a turbo mustang, there were issues and delays. That experience and others taught me that if you are fitting a turbo to a car that didn't come with it, delays are highly possible, especially with custom stuff. Granted it's not a given, but possible. That said, if you are impatient, and/or your car is your only mode of tranportation, only use products with a reputation of fitting right the first time. Limit the customizing and go with tried and true parts. If you can't do that, don't bicth about delays.

my order took like 2-months I think, who cares? If the miata is your only car then you need to get a real job and get a real car, like a Veyron.

Seriously dude, if you order custom ****, don't be suprised if it doesn't fit right or there are delays. I will never order customs parts unless it is local. Mail order customs **** is a nightmare waiting to happen. If you have patience issues, order off the shelf ****.

You better watch the motherfucking way you type to me or I'll have to drive my turbo miata down to Houston and whoop your *** like your dad...then get a viet sandwich from Louis Givrals.

I'm going to give you a chance to retype that, with respect. DO NOT **** ME OFF or my little, faggy dog will eat Purina out of your skull.

LOL how about you read my posts more slowly and apologize to me for making me type something twice. YOUR FAULT FOR NOT READING Maybe your dad shouldn't have slept with his sister and had you and then maybe you would know how to read.

max boost-extremely scientific term. His words, not mine.

OP- They seem better about delivering the simple "kits" on time, not so much on the fancier, higher level kits. If you want a PNP kit with no BS, I'd call FM. From what I've seen, both companies sell badass kits and FM usually/overall/in general/ not-all-cases-but-most/ has a more straightfoward install, everything in the box the first time, no returning things that don't fit, etc.

Hmm here I was going to say a nice little joke about you on 290 but I decided to do something different.

1. I have your ip address and a friend who works for the APD so I can get where you live and your name.
2. I do own a gun (actually 3) and I have concealed handgun licencse.
3. I take threats on my life very seriously. You continue and there will be consequences.

No duel i'm serious. Threatening to kill someone is not something I take lightly nor should anyone else. I've seen enough death to know its not something to be joked about ever.

I don't find threatening to kill someone funny at all. Nor would anyone who has seen death in real life.
