Well last night I received my clutch from SLS in a separate package from my manifold. I came home today 20 minutes ago to 2 more packages sitting on my front door, which had me uber excited yet puzzled at the same time. I open the first box to find a top mount, and i was psyched to find that, so then I knew there had to be something else in the other package of some importance and I knew it was another part that they mishipped and was hoping that they sent me 2 manifolds not knowing of their messup. Well I opened the box to actually find my manifold and a note.

Basically they sent me the first one which had a 38mm gate instead of a 44mm like mine and was to be going to a person I will only give away their first name which happened to be Benjamin... With the note was a shipping label prepaid and basically they asked me that I repackage it and sent it to Benjamin as a favor since they had mistakenly sent it to me and caught their mishap.

Being the good person I am, I will be sending it to Benjamin in a few minutes. I would be very upset had mine went somewhere else and made my 2 month wait take even longer. Especially if the person who got it didnt send it to me, like asked, and it took SLS another 2 months to make me one.

I got pics of both so dont "Pics or Didn't happen" me. I'll put them up as soon as I get back from FedEX this package is Overnight, as they were to my house too. But Ben will be waiting for his package in the morning.

I don't rep much, but this deserved it. Don't know many people that would have graciously done that. That mani is the SEX!

good shit man! i have had trouble with their shipping department before...

i ordered a pre-fabbed collector... waited like 3 weeks, and nothing... checked for my reciept, and i didnt get one emailed to me... so i ordered another... got it within a week.. and then a few days later, i got another one... i thought i gained something on their behalf, but sure enough, looked at my bank account, and enough money was gone for both...

i dont normally ask for favors. i talked with nick on the phone after i shipped the manifold. he graciously thanked me. i told him about how excited i was until i found the note. and then i knew i had to send it. i know damn well mine had went to someone else after i have been waiting 2 months like i have, and they didn't send it to me. i would be very upset about waiting for SLS to make me another. i only do whats right.

thanks for all the reps. i really wish i could have kept it and sold it which was my first thought when i received it. but after my talk with nick. i would have really felt bad, hes a good guy just always super busy. he actually called me back today which is the first i have ever heard of. i think if i order again i might get the hook up, i'll call and order and he'll know what to do. if not, no big deal. i cant expect a manifold for free. they honestly cost quite a bit in materials alone to make. they may make their own flanges etc, but they dont cost much more than the materials to make them though.

i also got my clutch last night which shipped separately from my manifold. i found an exhaust housing for my 60-1, so you guys may see this on sooner than expected. check my build thread if you're interested in that
