Sorry, but one is on this forum only 'once-in-a-blue-moon', and the other does not do internet forums.

Hey guys, I have been out of touch. Work has been crazy. I will get updates going again here shortly.

no problem, you didn't miss anything. The list is just for members to show interest so DKF can see if there are enough of us interested to do a group buy production run.

Tentatively, DKF would like us to start group buy some time in January or February and running it through March. The "drop dead date" would be toward the end of March.

They are in the process of finalizing a few aspects of the system, before an actual group buy is begun including:
-Tip length (protrusion from bumper)
-Street muffler
-hanger hardware

Dyno's are also a important part of the equation.

Un-related but relevant, by car is down for a primary O2 senor (In the headers bank 2) that has gone bad . It is supposed to available by the 16th. Unfortunately, the primaries are not an off the shelf item. I am not willing run universal sensors for my primaries, so I am stuck waiting. I ran a dyno with the bad sensor and the OEM exhaust; the numbers were lower than they should have been, so before I make any runs with the DKF stuff I need to get a solid baseline with OEM.

Not everyone lives on the forum. Some of us do have lives outside of cars....

Be patient.

Forums insist on dynos and all sorts or data but have no patience for people to acquire it. Just go drive your car. It'll come.

No-ones insisting on data.... Just a realistic time frame... Simple as really....if im told it will be march 12 no probs ill happily wait, no problem at all...... Information and good communication is the key to a successful service or product......

Maybe they got tired of giving estimated dates, only to run into another hurdle. I say they should shoot for no later than Feb 14th so our gf/wives can know what to get us. That would be the most romantic gift ever!

^^^yep, Feb/Mar is probably more realistic. Besides, why are people pining for it when their rides are put away for winter anyhow? It's not deliberate procrastination. If anything it makes total marketing sense to hit the spring market

Some of us have lovely warm
Weather year round..... Tbh winter is the perfect time for me, the car is getting all the tweaks ready for its first outing so i can dial in all the changes and tweak things to perfection..... Only good thing about march is i have plenty of time to save.
