It was about 4 weeks from the time I first heard mine was shipping this week until it did finally ship. I was on a tight deadline for Pony Wars so it irked the shit out of me but it seems like your time line might be longer.

You can imagine how pumped I was when we finally got it in the car only to have it sound like a jet engine turbine going down the road.

This is unfair. You get all the cool strange references. With my Lingenfelter 9.5" all I can say is that I have a bigger butt.
