(thinking aloud)
Hmmm..... that comes to NT$250,000..... Not bad for the extra boost.... Something for me to look into.... especially since the S is about 30,000USD more here.....

How much will the import duty run? Will Lotus racing accomodate you on the wing?

I have no idea what the duty's are gonna come out to. Last time i Paid about $90 for my $3500 Exhaust system so I guess it will be like $250 or $300

I haven't ever got anything shipped internationally could you possibly explain the process. Also who was the contact person for the kit. It's amazing how smooth the purchase went. Good luck and as I say in boost we trust till we blow a rod.

But again short blocks cost only 2700 bucks so no worries.

REI: I worked with andrew directly from lotus racing. One thing I can say about him is that he's amazing at what he does and he always replies back to his emails within a day. It has definitely been a pleasure working with him. I highly recommend him if you're looking to get the kit. The way I paid for the kit is that he emailed me the wire info for his bank and I had my amex exchange program handle the transfer. They received the wire next day and package was shipped next day. Can't get easier than that.
