EP064 Mufflers, Air Filter Bases, and the Existence of Iowa

Welcome to our show Unsealed: Life Beyond the Bolts! Each week, Kate Dillon from Crate Insider and Steve Hendren from Hendren Racing Engines go live on the Crate Insider Facebook page to chat about world events, random things, and to answer tech questions.

This Week

Kate has had a productive week getting things done “around the house”, which means she has been in full video mode. Steve has been enjoying the lap of luxury driving around in his new 2021 Dodge Charger! Both have been struggling with finding products due to the lack of lack of people working the manufacturing industry. Take care of your parts folks, certain replacements are scarce.
