Mountune will ship out the stuff they are just very old school about it. A lot of you don’t realize this but it used to be you ordered stuff on the net and a few weeks later you would get it. You all have been spoiled by Amazon and the likes with their same day and next day shipping and Prime 2 day gurantee delivery.
In the automotive world most of us strive to be that way but sometimes run into back orders and Mountune definitely falls into that category.
My FB3 package came in 3 seperate shipments due backorders. I did get everything and you will get your hose just relax. Calling them every single day may not make it ship any faster.

Ultimately it not even really the time issue that upsets me as much as the non communication. If it's gonna be a bit and I'm let know something is on backstock, I understand that I'll have to wait.

But being told something is in stock and will be sent out asap and then back to hearing nothing again sucks.

I'll give em the benefit of the doubt since it's summer and probably busy, but I think in the digital age we live in a quick email saying they're behind/may take longer than expected shouldn't be too hard.

Honestly they are not exceptional in the communication department. i got my stuff with no notice when I got it.

In that case only time will tell, guess no need to try and keep badgering em.

On another note how long was your stuff on backorder for? I'm holding out and hoping either the turbo back or catback exhaust will be in stock soon but they've been out of stock for a while.

My intake arrived pretty quickly as did my AP my intercooler took longer it was about a month or so . Now my intake hose came in 2-3 days of ordering it but when I was at the Meet and talked to them in person they were waiting on a shipment of hoses. I ordered the following week so the order must have come in. They use a very reputable Silicone Hose manufacturer by the way. Company has been around a long time.

That's good to hear at least. Here's hoping the next one doesn't split. Excited to finally upgrade to the St200 inbox and related parts soon(except the VT big mouth but that'll come later)

I forgot that I did take a photo of the intake when it was stock with the 2 connections that have to be made into 1 with the new evap hose harness . Spork I've had the same thing happen to me with certain businesses with no contact for a few days , so I would give them a few more days maybe till Monday and then call again .

LOL mine has duct tape in that exact same spot. I thought the previous owner did some cheap maintenence but looks like it may come from the factory like that.

Good news is it arrived out of the blue like @Dpro said. Noticed the adapter was on tighter this time which I think could have possibly been an issue last time. I noticed a lot less flex needed to get the new hose in and a lot less overall movement as this time the adapter seemed snug, whereas last time it moved up and down quite a bit even while installed.

Pics below in case you need to see what I mean regarding the adapter. For anyone ordering the 2016 kit I'd recommend making sure it's installed correctly in case that did contribute to the rips. 20190611_193039.jpg 20190603_155121.jpg

Glad you got your replacement! My newly ordered one is 4 weeks out still had to email for them to admit this fact.. kind of disappointed so far.

When I called it sounded like blue was the only color left. I originally wanted black to match my car but I would've rather had it sooner than wait for the backstock.

Hopefully doesn't take too much longer for you.
