RX Performance has really gone down the toilet...

okay, here's the deal. I ordered my OCC from RX Performance on April 10th. I've been waiting and waiting and waiting. I was expecting to get the item a few days after I placed my order because their website says the item was in stock. I live in the central FL area which means most things come over night.

so a week goes by and no OCC. I emailed them and I was told there was a 2 to 3 week backlog on them due to them having issues with their vendor that actually makes them. so that pissed me off and I asked the person with RX why the hell does their website say the item is in stock when they obviously aren't. she then tells me they were in the process of updating their site.

here I am, OVER ONE FREAKIN' MONTH LATER and I still don't have my damn catch can. and to add insult to injury, their freaking website still shows the item is in stock. meantime I still have to drive my ZL1 daily becasue it's my DD. this pisses me off because I know I keep running the risk of getting oil vapors inside my intake system by not having an OCC.

WTF? what kind of business practice does these kinds of things?

My shop has been waiting for a catch can for my car for 2 weeks also. I'm not as close as you are but still. Two weeks is a bit ridiculous in my opinion. I feel your pain.

Placed my order 4/5/13, called and asked if it was "lost in space", was told that they were running behind. Since I still don't have my car(ordered 3/25) it really doesn't matter to me that they are running behind. But I do understand where you are coming from. I don't expect to see my car until the end of June(TPW 6/3), so I am good for another month before my frustration will boil over.

I run an RX on my Camaro, but the Mike Norris can is very good. I had one on my C6 and was extremely happy with the fit-n-finish & performance.

This, we have so many options with all kinds of parts, if something is backordered go elsewhere.

Waited 3 weeks for a GM dovetail (backorder) they wanted 700.00 installed which was no biggie but while I was waiting I grabbed a carbon fiber one for about half that price.

According to what I have recently heard the Rx cans are on about a 6 week delay now. That is a long time for just a Catch can

Took mine about a month but I knew they were backed up. Whatever you do don't go for the stainless lines, there trash. I ended up making my own out of rubber. He said he would refund me but I figured it was my mistake. My only complaints were it took awhile and the quality of the can was alright. The painter didn't completely cover the whole thing, o and it was shipped parcel post.

I'm curious why RX hasn't responded yet? This thread is already a few days old. I'm sure he has seen it.

Tried calling many times but no one answers their damn phones.

I got an email from some Irene lady that said my order should ship on Friday. LAST FREAKING FRIDAY!

It is a long time. A freaking long time that my engine has been probably getting oil blow-by inside the intake system. The thought of that crap burns my ass so much.

Only thing worse is the feeling of getting strung along by the emails telling me my order will be shipping soon.

I'm so far in to this ordeal which means I need to stick it out until my can comes in. The harm has already been done so canceling my order and waiting on a new one won't make much difference now.
