All order have been shipped as of yesterday so those that didnt get a tracking# were not sure why.

All SouthwestSpeed and most other dealers have shipped as well. FINALLY caught up (for a day at least LOL!)

Let us know the results all. Next batch due in app 2 weeks. Again, ALL have been shipped that were on order as of 2 days ago.

That's great news...I didn't receive a tracking number for my order #276 from Southwest Speed but after reading the post above I'm hopeful that it will arrive on Tuesday. Fingers Crossed!

Mike Norris said mine was sent out Friday but he didn't have A chance to send me the tracking number, since Monday is a holiday he said I should have it by Wednesday.
I have to take mine in and get the air box replaced, when they changed my oil two weeks ago they noticed the air box had a piece broken on it. They ordered me a new one and when it came in it was also broken. So I am waiting for another one now. I will install my PTB after that gets fixed.

Throttle body installed last night along with Air scoop ( already had CAI intake ) and washer relocation kit. Haven't had time to do some good WOT from a stop yet. I'll install my Gtech-Pro and see what has changed on my 60' times. So far just driving home last night and taking things easy with a Holiday weekend, things feel good, not drastic but worth the investment. While I was swapping out parts I also cleaned the little downtube in the front of the intake right behind the T/B. It contained a fair amount of residue, only 3800 miles on my car. Glad I installed an RX catch can recently.

Does anyone know of any Chassis Dynos in the upper East Tennessee area, Tri-Cities is preferred. I want to get a baseline and after the PTB install on my car.

You said ALL SouthwestSpeed has shipped but I didn't get a tracking number and Ivan just told me that if I didn't get a tracking number then it didn't make it last week...I ordered on 8/8 (order 276) and was hoping for a surprise package tomorrow since others reported not getting tracking numbers but now I am unsure once again...also, I just ordered a VR Catch Can through Southwest Speed too..can't wait to get both items

Is that representative of how many PTB's that have been sold? If so, wow. I was in the initial batch, so they had my money for a couple of months (which wasn't a problem).

Hang in there, it's worth the wait.
