Re: New aFe intake option coming...

I spoke to BWoody today and they're saying that AFE keeps pushing the release. They have over 150 pre-orders for our model.

My guess is that the unit cost more than expected to produce and they're waiting to reach a critical mass order to start production.

Who knows.


Cheers,
Ollie

Re: New aFe intake option coming...

I'm in direct communication with the engineer that designed it (it was tested and final design approved on my truck). It's going to be end of November most likely.

Would probably have been slightly sooner if they hadn't run into SEMA which is super busy for them.

Re: New aFe intake option coming...

I've personally seen another airbox in a vehicle, that I'd prefer, but it's not ready yet, so I'll probably go this when its out, the other will be much more $$$ because of the brand...

^ This is correct

After Sema is the date of release some changed where made so we put ^ in contact with AFE to test the changes and AFE was satisfyied with the results!! The CAD was sent out for mold 4 weeks ago and they needed 8 weeks to get the molds back which lands us right after Sema.

Re: New aFe intake option coming...

I didn't say that BWoody said that they pre-sold 150 units, themselves.

Mike said that he was told by AFE that there were a total of 150 units reserved, throughout their entire distribution network.

Whether it's true, or not, it's only hearsay.

I don't see how that makes much of a difference in anyone's life.


Cheers,
Ollie
