Average turn around time on ordering Solo exhaust

99% sure I'm placing an order today for a shorty unbalanced kit, but was just curious what kind of turn around time from payment to doorstep Solo tends to have. I'm getting tuned in about 20 days and wanted to know if this was going to be on the car in time.

thanks

Just call Steve up at solo, but I would guess 7-10 days like most mail, if not sooner.

Hi guys! Thanks so much Big for your order. It's processed and they are packing it as we speak in our Buffalo store. We will be getting you a tracking number to your e-mail before tomorrow night and you will have the kit mid next week. Happy Easter and thanks for your Solo Support!

badass, cant wait to dyno with this setup

Hey Steve (or anybody that knows), if I was going to run PaceSetter LTs with this catback, do I just use the PaceSetter 82-1168 connectors or do I need a shop to fab something up?


thanks,
Jon

yea the answer is fast. I ordered the 21st, its going to be here the 27th. thanks guys.

also just an observation, in your shipping email it said that you were using USPS to ship, but its actually a UPS tracking number. I figure you use both companies, and my iphone was smart enough to immediately send me to the UPS site, but somebody might have pitched a fit because their tracking number was invalid and I dont want you guys getting bad feedback


thanks again!

Thanks for the heads up...it is shipping UPS If you wanted to run any LT header, a shop would have to fab up something to connect it. LT headers usually run into the catback kit itself. The only way around that is to purchase our catted midpipe that bolts right up to the Kooks LT headers. I would suggest our HF cats, as they will bolt right up to your catback and will get you very similar power gains without having to cut or weld.

Steve
