To be totally fair, people have had problems with Place Racing's inventory of CAI's. I hate to say this, but we all have been running into a bad spirt of customer service from lots of companies. Place Racing's inventory primarily deals with Engine Mounts, and they specifically make four colors..red, yellow, blue and silver. When they do this, they also powdercoat their CAI's when they do engine mounts, so for example, they make red one week, then they won't make red ones(engine mounts and CAI's) for awile after they run through the other colors. Silver is their most highly stocked item and it's also their heavily bought item. They're having a hard time filling these orders. :(

To be honest also, I don't have any real excuses for Hotshot, but I know they have been one of the only companies that actually do R&D for our cars and even do anything more than most. I know that there is pretty much no excuse for customer service.

Like I tell everyone, let's make our own Sentra only shop for all Sentra stuff! :)

Hey man, were you part of the group deal? I'm prepared to call and talk with Gilbert here shortly about the missing CAI's from the last group. Is it the color? Email me please. :)

yeah, I think everyone knows not to talk to me about Hotshot! :D hahaha.

Hotshot is completely unreliable for ordering parts. They lied to me on several occasions on various issues. They finally told me that they couldn't supply me with my 3rd intake (the first two were wrong) for 3 more weeks. This would put my delivery date 11 WEEKS after I originally ordered it.

I wrote Hotshot a not too nice letter explaining why I was so pissed off at them. In the end, I cancelled my order with them. After that, it took them 2 WEEKS to refund my money.

I have said it once, and I will say it again. I will NEVER deal with Hotshot for ANY part now, or in the future. They are taking advantage of their customers, lying to them, and not offering the level or service they once did. That isn't the type of company that deserves our business.

how much do the Place Racing CAI's run for? and what ever happened to the AEM CAI? I remember someone talking about it and their car was used as the demo car for it.

Yeah there was someone talking about AEM intake, but haven't heard from him. The last price I got for the PR CAI was $226.something, that was from IPP.

Yo Marvin,

I was on that group deal and haven't gotten my silver intake either. If you could find out, that would be great! I'm ready to install everything and this is the last thing.

Waiting for PR CAI, got the Stromung, got the Unorthodox, got a big fat empty "0" in my bank...:)
