Can I ask if you guys had to wait 4-7 weeks to have this exhaust built and delivered? I ordered online (name of company withheld right now). They showed "in stock and ready to ship". I call to see when shipment may take place and they say its 4-7 weeks even though they show to have it "in stock". He proceeds to tell me because its a hand made kit and this is "common practice". I have owned many and still own many other muscle cars and none of them ever needed to wait 4-7 weeks for an exhaust. Am I over reacting? I did get a good deal I will say. It was 200.00 less than all the other shops.

Covid-19 has impacted most all ETA's.
It's not uncommon that AWE and others wait to reach an order level to justify scheduling a production run.
JIT Inventory / Manufacturing, everyone is doing it.

I ordered a Track to Touring conversion kit after installing LTH and it took at least 6 weeks to get that, it’s literally a couple hangers and pipe and mufflers. I honestly think they make them to order and are so behind because us “car dorks” have blown the Performance parts industry minds with how much we have purchased this past year. It’s a great exhaust system and well worth the wait.

AWE build time is usually 30 business days. That dealer shouldn't have stated in stock but other than that the lead time seems about right.

Thank You Josh. I agree that "in stock and ready to ship" shouldn't mean 4-7 weeks.

I ordered my AWE Touring rear section directly from AWE pre covid. It was around 30 days for build and delivery.

Could be worse. I ordered a Corsa Xtreme Catback 2 weeks ago and was told 9 to 12 week backorder.

Well....should have gone with CJ Pony Parts to begin with! I'm grateful for CJPP's business ethics and correct inventory control. My ordered was placed yesterday with them and I will have the exhaust by Saturday!!! As for the other a-holes at Function Factory Performance....58 days and still nothing! Never again! I also Thank Steeda for being an amazing business as always!
I'm just now getting back into the Mustang world again and I know there are a ton of great performance shops that support this forum and can not wait to do business with you!
