I guess Iíll call JDL Monday. Iím stil unsure why they only have EL headers for sale instead of UEL especially since theyíre made to order. Also their turbo kit is UEL so it doesnít make sense.

How are you determining OEM radiators are out of stock across the country? This site shows they are available.

When I called 2 Subaru dealerships in Atlanta they said they had none and all warehouses were out until the end of may or June and I called them in April.

Spot rates for a 20' container was anywhere from $15-30k in Q1 of this year, depending on what port it sailed from. That is about double from last summer and 4x what it was normally.

And the reason for this is because many importers have a fixed cost structure that could not account for sudden changes in pricing and are sort of waiting it out, otherwise they will lose a lot of money.

Or they're waiting it out to "raise" MSRP and also have customers cancel orders at old prices.

Coupled with the fact that the JPY plunged in value over the last 90 days and it's just making some vendors hurt more.

If I would have known itíd be like this I would have bought up all headers I could and be selling them now. Itís funny the only headers you can get now are the ft86speedfactory ones and Iíve been told by too many tuners to stay away from them because they flow worse than the OEM exhaust manifold.

Iím on the loose a lot of money end since we have to honor sales agreements already signed. At least shipping is coming back down. Iím getting rates of 11-14k for full 40ís now less taxes and duties depending on weight and port of loading.

Yeah the China lockdown has really made rates sink. Hopefully when my stuff needs to be moved in 2-3 weeks the rates will be $10k, back to double my initial estimate...

could be worse. A friend lost $40M overnight when Trump announced tariffs from China in 2017/18 because she had 40+ 40' of raw material already inbound on the ocean.

Yeah there's a lot you have no idea about. It's very VERY complicated, people seem to think it just happens like magic when in reality it's careful planning over the course of decades, disrupted within a matter of months and will take upwards of 5-10 years to get back to normal.
