Well 2 weeks isnt as bad as a 15 month deployment, but my car wasnt right up the road then. Matt Im still waiting on word from SBR. They have the turbo, just supposed to replace the wheel and cold section, then install the snape ring CORRECTLY this time. Then they ship it to the tuner and hopefully get it back within a another week or so.

An another note I will be posting my parts list for my engine and tranny build for earlier next year. People can critisize and make suggestions for that also.

Alrite, just an update for anyone who might still be wondering or following. Its wednesday nite, I called SBR monday to no avail, so tuesday get to work and email SBR about my situation and lack of NOT having my car for 4weeks (this saturday). Still nothing. So I email them first thing this morning also. Then decide to blow their phone up until I get an answer. Third call I get someone who is supposed to transfer me to who I have been talking to. I get hung up on instead, it happens, sometimes. Well I finally found on their website and called the guy directly. Hes like oh I have been trying to get ahold of them (about the turbo) and havent got an answer. I tell him he has until tomorrow to give me a STRAIGHT answer or come satruday Im overniting a turbo from Blouch to me. And then I will fight the battle with SBR about getting my money for my BUSTED A$$ turbo they sent me. Im not trying to bash anyone here, and its a fine line, but just want people to be careful with who they choose to deal with and mytrial and errors that I have been through.

I'm willing to bet money that they sent you a SBR 20G instead of a blouch...but if you want I can personally go down there and give them shit for fun seeing as how its like 5 minutes from my house lol

Thats exactly what they did Matt. Im calling here in just a minute to SBR for the last time. Either they gurantee my turbo in my hands by monday morning. Or tomorrow Im over nighting one from Blouch. I need the turbo installed by tuesday for my tune or I will be trailering one of the WRXs to Kansas.

But if you want to give them shit by all means, thats fine, they lost a customer, thats for sure.

Wow what a bunch of punks. I hate it when people always try to deny it's their fault or do everything they can to avoid the problem at hand.

Josh you should of been blowing up their phone as much as possible 2 weeks ago.

If all else fails and your turbo doesn't arrive back on time. Just put the stocker back on and go with a different tuner when u get to your location. Just an idea. (might be cheaper than towing it)

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

Its a sad state of affairs that it had to come to this. Nevermind the fact that they lied about giving you a Blouch turbo and we all know thats not what they did. Since Blouch inspected it and said it wasn't their turbo, but they're rebuild it anyways.

Well called 3 times and left an email already to SBR, no answers. Called Blouch, cant get me a turbo in time, so guess its back to the stocker. And im VERY UPSET about this. Guess I will be (maybe, if I have the balls to try this again) getting the turbo after I get back from deployment now. Guess it gives me time to think about how big I really want to go.
