    Not sure I understand what you are waiting for. We only ship turbochargers in very heavy double wall boxes, couple this with the weight of the turbos itself, and that we insure them for the total amount every time. This means shipping is always high (if you consider shipping 30lb box with $2000 insurance cross country high that is) . If you are waiting for shipping to go down that is not going to happen. We would rather charge more shipping, and be insured against damage as shippers routinely have been known to throw boxes around. A turbocharger is a precision piece of equipment, they do not do well being dropped or thrown. This ensures if we have any issues they are covered by the shipper. As for the paypal fee, many people simply drop us an email, and ask if they can use a CC directly, and avoid the fee. The answer is of course yes.

    When I do eventually buy one, is it possible to have it installed by you guys and pay for the turbo and all at the shop? And just drive out there since I only like 25mins away. Rather than shipping it?

    Will do and i doubt i will regret it. Just getting power to redline is enough for me. I will do a full review with and without a tune.

    Any update on this? And are you saying with this turbo upgrade an eco is potentially faster than 700hp hellcat from a roll? Id love too see some track videos if you have any. This sounds insane :eyebulge:

    I'm not really trying to bust your balls too hard, but Paypal or not there is a fee associated with taking a customers credit card. For card not present transactions, most smaller companies are at the 2.5% or higher range. Paypal is currently at $.30 + 2.9%.

    As for shipping, I certainly understand proper packaging AND insurance. Quoting out a 15x15x15 @ 30lbs fully insured to my zip code comes back at $36 with UPS published rates. If you have any form of negotiated rates it will be even cheaper than that.

    Again, not trying to bust your balls too much. I think it is a solid solution, and I will probably end up with one at some point. My desire for instant gratification may outweigh my frustrations in the extra fees once these are actually in stock.

    Yessir.

    From Cali to New York might be $77, but Cali to Utah is <$36. In the day of Amazon Prime and most sites doing some form of free (or very cheap shipping) I have a hard time paying double what the published rates are.

    Instant gratification will probably get the best of me at some point, but that point is not now.
