I hear yea bud. Last three turbos I bought I waited 9 months for one, 5 months for another, and 2-3 months for the most recent one. All from same vendor. In my experience, 2 months is nothing (lol). Pretty sad though.
Don't even get me started on calibrations. screwed around with one calibration for 3 years sending it back and forth. Never did get the overboost and detonation problem fixed. Another calibration from another vendor waited 1 year for and only received after several strong worded letters. When I did get cal, it was exactly what I didn't want. Part throttle boost limit crap. My s-60 performed like a 60-01. 10 PSI till 4500 then went to full boost. Yet another vendor sent in 87 TII core and waited 3 years. Fortunately no money exchanged, but never got core back. This was from a guy I knew personally through SDAC. Then there is the Rob Maxon stories... Thank goodness that Rob (boostbutton) actually delivers.
Clutches? Ditto. Waited over a year to try to get correct made spline large spline. Finally gave up and went to another supplier. Had correct part in three weeks, and that was because they had to make a new broach to correct the fittment issue.
Learned my lesson, these days nothing gets paid in full from vendors until product is in house ready to be shipped.
