NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. We are now only fulfilling order requests for items that are able to be acquired within 3 weeks IF we are able to get them. Longer than 3 weeks backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled, and will be fulfilled in the longer, as-advertised timeframe.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you select the "3 week backorder fulfillment option", you can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently our response time to emails is slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even when we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

Cross-section photo shows the finned core of an OEM HD heater box for ILLUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY. The fins on the available AFTERMARKET heater boxes are not as "pretty" or extensive, but they still do the job you need to provide extra heat on cold days!


 
Heat Exchanger (Heater Box), Heavy Duty AFTERMARKET, Right, 1300-1600cc Type 1 and 2, 043-255-108H are the highest quality heater boxes available currently. Finned on the inside, NOT "Racing Heater Boxes" which are just a tube with a skin on it. You'll get the most heat possible with these for those cold days. Beware that many shops sell "Light Weight" or "Racing" Heater Boxes, luring you in by their low price. They are low priced because they have NO fins on the inside, just a shell and a J-tube so they do not produce as much heat.

Photo shows the finned core of an OEM HD heater box for ILLUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY. Lightweight heater boxes have no fins AT ALL around a round pipe. The fins on the available AFTERMARKET heater boxes are not as "pretty" and do not give as much additional surface area as OEM, but additional heat is gained by the fact that the heater box core is larger in cross section than the round tube of a non-finned unit. This slows the flow of hot exhaust, and increases the time to transfer the heat to the finned heat sink!

Tube ID is 1.215".

We recommend "Spiral Ducted" heater boxes for locations that don't get below 20F, and the "Heavy Duty" heater boxes for locations that get colder than that.
