Don't even think about MD Speed then, I'm coming up on 11 weeks since i placed mine and still no idea at all
Kooks has not had mid length headers in 2-3 months now. We are Kooks biggest dealer, and sell more G8 stuff than anyone else. The problem is, the sales volume is going down on G8 stuff and we are seeing bigger and bigger production gaps. Historically we have sold 1-2 a month..this is not a big seller. I think we have only 4 on backorder even now. It something we are working very hard to get resolved. We ask every week for you specific order, and they have not sent it. I am expecting then done this week or next.
I found a supplier on ebay with 10 plus sets in stock for 886.00
Does that sound like a good deal?
They don't have 10 sets in stock. Kooks does not MAKE them in runs of 10. I buy from Kooks and every major wholesaler. No one has them in stock right now. Not Summit, not Jegs. My competitors have the same sources as me. Likely they just put qty 10 in so the auction would run forever. Then when they try and fill the order, they will find they are on backorder.
On the item the OP inquired about, 50 bucks. To me 50 bucks is not worth the wait time to some it may be. The real problem I have is that they were not up front about this.
More like $100.....
I'm sure the majority just use a CC. It sounds like it just depends on when you order in relation to when he meets his number requirment to place a batch order.
Say it's 20 orders before the trigger is pulled for Kooks (what ever the number to get the discounted rate), at 830 bucks (using the OP item) in this case......sitting on the pot of cash for 11 weeks as it builds to 16,600.......sounds like a great business model for Maryland Speed if his customers can stomach the wait. He sits on your cash, you get a discount.
A win win IF the terms were clear.
I'm speculating here though, I don't know runs his show, maybe he will read this and chime in.
No..we regularly order these for stock. We are the only Kooks dealer who does order them for stock. I ordered these before the people who ordered them did. They plain have not made them. There are none on the shelf anywhere now. My recommendation is if you want them, to place an order, as I suspect the run they will be making will be sold before it is completed.
