I don't want to rant here, but this ordeal is so ridiculous, it's *almost* funny. As we were all holding our breath for the CAI's this week (when Hotshot swore they would be available,) we have been let down again. I told myself that I was going to cancel my order if they didn't ship this week, but I don't even know if it's worth the effort.

The excuse this week is that the tubes did not come back from the coaters. So now the earliest the CAI's could possibly ship is next wednesday, February 28th. Well, that is if they actually show up. There is no guarantee they will be delivered. Heck, it might be February of next year before we see these things.


hehehe....I was thinking we should do a "rain dance" to please the intake gods. Then maybe they would release the elusive CAI to us. I AM WORTHY!!

why not just get place racing? an intake is an intake. Unless you are seeking sponsorship, I don't see a difference.

I have been mulling over doing just that, but I have so much time invested in this Hotshot deal (1 month.) Plus, I think they are gonna hit me with a 15% restocking fee. So, it would cost me 25 bucks just to get out of the deal, then wait for them to refund my money, then order the PR unit. I probably wouldn't get it any sooner, and it would cost me more.

I really don't see the point in waiting for Hotshot to get their act together. From what I have seen is looks like they have horrible customer service and continually push back the date that they will release their product. I am 100% satisfied with my Nissan Blue Place Racing CAI that I received in 1 day! Why wait for something if the exact same product with a different name is ready to be shipped? I have had nothing but good experiences with this company and would recommend their CAI to anyone that asks.

tell them that their service is unacceptable and that you should not be charged a restocking fee. BTW, what are they restocking? If they have not sent you your CAI, how could they restock it? If anything, they are charging you for paperwork, which is bullsh*t. Call them and *****, you'll get a full refund.

I am waiting for one replacement pipe that should be here next week with the new hose fitting in it for the boost sensor (not needed I used it without).

Okay, Hotshot Update #1125587.


Well, it looks like Hotshot raised hell with their ceramic coater, and got an additional delivery of intake parts today. Previously, they hadn't expected the next delivery until the 28th. So, our intakes *might* be in that order. They will know by Monday or Tuesday for sure.

They were very understanding about our concerns. I told them that the main reason we were all so upset is that Place Racing (their main competitor) had the parts in stock, ready to ship. He explained to me that they under estimated the demand for the B15 intake and didn't make it a priority when they should have. I told them it wasn't about brand rivalry or anything....we just want our parts. He was very apologetic, and I began to understand that they were trying their best to get the orders fulfilled. Because of this, I decided to give them one more week to sort things out. He assured me that it would be worth the wait. So, I will report again next week.

Max, Gene, Ill...what is with this Hotshot stuff?? They always come up with something different when people call about it, where is their shop, so someone can go in there and talk to them face to face. Seems like phone conversation is not good enough sometimes... I just called Place Racing, and they just have a few blues in stock, and I had called them awile ago, and they said that the ones that will be red were at the powdercoaters, now they are telling me that they are gone and they aren't even making red for another few more weeks! Looks like if I don't get Russ', I'm going JWT POP.

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I don't know man it just seems they are giving us the major run around I mean i know that they are a small shop and all but they should'nt tell maxx and whoever is buying the CAI different answers everytime they call....But all i want from them anyways is the headers..I think i'm gonna go with place racing for the CAI when i get the extra dough...

See, the headers would more than likely have to come from HS, unless anyone has any brighter ideas, I've not heard too much bad things at all about their headers, especially when they come out with a B15 specific one. That would be pretty sweet, save the runaround.

I agree, it takes awhile for you to get hotshots stuff. Their stuff is high quality though so it is worth the wait sometimes. Hotshot is not a large company like some would think. They are in fact very small. It is a difficult task for them to keep everything in stock and make everything, especially when things are in such high demand such as their header and CAI. I'm not trying to say that we shouldn't get our stuff faster, just trying to try to explain why we dont sometimes.
