Hey guys,

We are working on getting the current orders produced and the new orders processed! Our mandrel pipe benders work off of a pre determined production and we happen to catch them in the middle of a run, causing a slight delay. We should have an update by mid to late this week on the final delivery dates.

No problems at all! The key to a perfect fitment is to loosely install the exhaust and adjust the muffler to your desired location, then proceed to tighten all bolts.

We will be adding more sound clips of different driving scenarios within the next week and a half. To include some more in-car driving and some low speed drive-bys.

That is the beauty of this exhaust. It has a nice low rumble in the low to mid rpm range, but opens up to a more aggressive sound when doing some "spirited driving". You will have no problem driving this normally through your neighborhood.

I'd love to buy one of these exhaust systems, but you guys come on here with empty promises... Dynos....cheaper exhaust than others. What's going on?

I'm anticipating that it won't extend it too long. I'll keep you guys updated.

For the dynos, we have post-install dyno numbers but unfortunately we are no longer in contact with the baseline dyno shop, which means we have nothing to compare with. Stock exhaust will be going back on the car by the end of this week to early next week. It is essential that we compare same dynos pre and post install to have accurate results for gains. Getting dyno time on a dynojet here is a high ticket commodity, they are booked literally weeks in advance.

I've been waiting for some updates so hopefully I can jump on board too. I'm interested in the Stage 1 pending:

1. Sound clips of Stage 1
2. Dynos
3. A confirmed shipping date, I've ordered CF parts from you so I'm hoping you could ship them together.

Please let me know, I'm very interested. I've ordered nearly all of your parts!!

I am beginning to wonder if my money isnt just gone... I've tried to cancel my order now that the actual delivery is way up in the air. Very very nice sounding exhaust, but just getting nervous.

We've seen some new mounted photos of the CF pieces in the CF group buy thread so things are looking good. I'm sure iCARBON are just swamped with trying to get everything finalised and send out the parts. I'd hang in there for a bit longer they seem legit.

Hey guys,

Just wanted to let you know that we should have a FULL BLOWN UPDATE by later today!
I'm hoping that by the end of the weekend we have some new clips of several driving scenarios to demonstrate just how its going to be driving this thing!

/me sighs...

it would have been easier to not post an update, than to post an update saying keep posted update out tonight... and then not updating us

Maybe I am just a negative nancy... but I swear that stuff is making me more and more and more skeptical. I want so badly to tout this exhaust, and now I've got vested interest in it.

Get it done and get it out, or give us an update and our updated videos to appease the prying minds.
