Getting supplies for and from anyone for anything has been a mess. No company can deliver something they don't have.

To help the reader understand, I am not defending HydraTech. Their lead time has _always_ sucked. Never once have I called there and talked to a person, I always leave a message. Most of the time they call me back. I also think that they are relatively expensive for what they are.

However, I would wait 4 years for a HydraTech unit and I would cut holes in the floor and stop the car like Fred Flintstone before I bought another CPP hydroboost.
I understand & feel a need to support those that support the hobbyist. But, switching teams to get something done is just sometimes a fact in life. If you can pick-up a set-up that's good (I understand the CPP poke) why not? You can always choose HydraTech for a future project.

I agree 100%....... CPP sells Garbage..... I am a graduate of buying CPP Engineered "JUNK" Kits.....

Ha... lot of hate for CCP, now I know what not to get when my Talon unit fails.

Maybe try calling Tobin at Kore3 and see if they can get it faster: http://www.kore3.com/categories.php

Not Hate...... Just reality with my experience in dealing with them.....in both Tech support and parts supplied in their "Engineered" Disc Brake kit from some years ago.....

Glad it worked out for you. I ordered mine thru MCB and was quoted about a 6 weeks turn-around and got it in about 4 weeks.

We ordered the HydraBoost system on 10/20 and were told 6-8 weeks delivery...... I work out of my home garage and didn't schedule getting Chris's car over until the 7th week...... That gave me a couple weeks to where I would have to store one of my cars somewhere and I then had a couple of weeks to finish up the swap...... So after 4 months and a week still waiting for the brake system the car is just sitting and waiting....... I had planned the winter out using the schedule provided by Hydraboost..... What a mess.... They are good and provide a Quality system but they need to understand that their projected scheduling goes way beyond their lack of intensity to live up to their projections....... my other plans for updates on my cars got cancelled for the winter....... Thanks Hydraboost !!!! Still waiting with no response to emails requesting delivery info
