Does anyone know what is going on with RPM Motorsports? I bought a CAI for my 2.4 NA last summer. It took so long to get to me that I didn't put it on the car before it went into storage in late October. When the warm weather returned in May I tried to install the CAI. No way was it fitting on the 2.4 Sky.

I contacted them and eventually sent it back to them for a refund. Two months later still no reply, several emails not returned and eventually I get an email asking where I sent the part as they can't find it. Needless to say I would not recommend them for anything at this point as there seems to be no one actually working there.

I ordered an RPM Motorsports FMIC about 6 weeks ago, and it took less than a week to get here. No complaints, but that's only one order. Good luck!

I would STAY AWAY from RPM Motorsports. My Sky LNF Water Pump failed and they said they would fix it. Several apparent attempts by them failed and they would not admit that they did not use the GM that holds the timing chain while the repair is made. Had a horrible whine after the repair (timing chain and balance shaft messed up from not using proper tools and procedure). Cost me over $2000 to have it fixed by a reputable shop (I have the receipts). I had several issues with check engine lights illuminating after their cal was loaded, the joints that connect their intercooler tubes leaked (repaired) and several other issues. There's no indication that of their mechanics are certified.

I have never had any luck getting in touch with him unless he wanted something. I went out on limb buying this flasher. I ordered and have heard nothing from them since. Did pay for it with PayPal so will come out okay, but wanted it on the Ugly Rock before she drove it. Nothing came today, which I hoped it would. Requested USPS priority mail.

I just read the whole invoice. Pleas allow 6 business days for your item to ship. So it hasn't even shipped yet. Paid for two day shipping. Sorry Robo still have no use for this vendor.

Really poor communication and service compared to DDM. At the moment I am out the $200 or so for the CAI and the shipping charge here and back.

The part arrived today. I am happy to have it, and will install in the morning. 6 day processing is a long time. And that is exactly what it took. Would not have paid for 2 day delivery if I had realized that. My fault, but just not a normal turn around time these days.

Depends on the part and the way it's obtained. For an Amazon type deal, yea that's forever. For a drop shipper it's longer than normal. If they outsource the part I could see it taking some time. If they are selling a made to order part...

...lets just say we all know Norm's turn around time.

So I don't know what the story is on this part but sounds like there may be something in the acquisition pipeline that causes this part to take that long to process when ordered.

I buy a lot of stuff on line, 9 day turn around is not normal. Plus it would have been very nice if it worked. No instructions on changing the sequence, but didn't make much difference it did not work either way. Now I have a dangle that just connects wires for 90.00 and a 9 day wait. I will return when I get one from someone else that works. It will be my last dealings with what I consider a snake.

I hope you had better luck with return. I bought a CAI last September which arrived in late October after I put the car away. Tried to install in May and would not fit. Returned part to RPM in June. It is now September and after a dozen emails and 3-4 direct phone calls and messages I still have not received a refund. Completely unresponsive and inept at customer service. I only ordered the one part but I would never deal with this company again.
