No, but building the crates to ship it properly costs some bucks, and takes a bunch of time.

Thanks.
Seriously, I'd planned to build three wooden crates if it had to be shipped, so the buyer could be assured it showed up in good shape. If the buyer really wants cardboard boxes (
), I'd reduce the shipping to actual cost (which I suspect would still be more than $70).

DHL is the way to go. $50 when I shipped my VF kit. I think it ended up weighing like 40lbs with all my packaging materials. Hell of a price though, $2500!!!!

Re: FS: VF Stage 2 Supercharger kit (Sladage)

I've been sitting on the thing for a long time, just haven't gotten around to putting it on the market. I need the space! BTW, it does have an idler pulley (VF) that's toast; I haven't found out what a replacement costs, but potential buyer should crank that into his cost calculation.

I should mention that this system comes with TWO sets of hard tubing -- the aluminum, AND the black plastic. My car came with the aluminum, but I liked the stealth look better. I also cut the plastic one to move the MAF up next to the motor (trying to keep SC oil from dripping down on it). With some silicone hose and clamps (also included), you can mount the MAF in either location.
BTW, I also upgraded all the clamps to the spring type; all included.

Yeah, on the drivers side next to the cam cover. I made two cuts in the plastic tube, and inserted the MAF with the proper stepped silicone hose and four clamps. Works fine. Saved the removed section, so the plastic pipe can also be used with the MAF in the normal position up in the RF corner.
