Yes, you can buy or get the tuner on loan with a deposit. There are not many out there.

"Rudeness" is maybe a little extreme. I just want more information before spending a buttload of money. I did get a PM from IPF today. The Supercharger Kit is $5,695.00 and the Price Increase is still being discussed.

It's kind of interesting that the price is increasing. The kit is still really new, so I would have expected initial price to be higher, but then once more and more people started buying I would have expected a price decrease as they would be able to spread out their fixed costs, R&D and other initial investments over a much more broad customer base. Unless their suppliers are increasing prices too, but the most expensive piece would be the Vortech unit I'd think.

I would have thought the opposite. Sell below cost get the word out the increase the price to recoup R&D. The apple biz case from way back. Good biz strategy if you look at successful companies

Problem is you aren't going into a fragmented market where you need to get the brand out. There are really only two super charger options at the moment. Therefore easier to sell at a premium, simply supply & demand really

Only two options but both are not familiar names outside of the current few forums. Make a name...sell product.

Jessie will get it too you, Any supercharger kit needs to be tuned, not all of them have the module with them. I am sure it will be handled professionally. Its really only a day out for the tuner and then install the software and return. Of course you could always buy one and tune you friends and recoup your purchase....

LS COMMENTS!

Thank you LS!!

I would not have known anything was missing unless ready a post.

We do everything possible to make sure everything is there and this was a Web Order not ordered through me. I still miss some things too though. I am not perfect still even after all these years! HAHA!

Everything is worked out now as I always do!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Thanks,

Jesse!

Yes everything's taken care of now, Jesse was a great help in getting me everything I needed. I was a little confused so I didn't know if it was included or not but he cleared it up. But everything's on its way and Im still anxious to get it installed and give it a drive!
