Default turbo junkies... here's some crack for you!

For those who never believed me when I said you could source QUALITY turbo's for <$1000....

Read this thread

http://www.i-club.com/forums/showthr...hlight=ax53b60

now... who'd be interested if I told you I can have a brand new unit shipped to your door (never used) in 2-5 business days... for ~$900US?

I only can source ONE... (but this proves my point to ya'll) This is from a private seller abroad who never had a chance to use it. I picked up a VF23 from him for $600US... In my case it had about 900 miles on it.. but the AX53B60 is NEW.

Any takers? I'm simply the middle man.. I'm not going to make a dime on this.. I'm simply hooking up someone with this person.. then you guys work it out...

I'm wiring money to him... there isn't exactly COD to where he's from... international at least. And it's getting shipped via a trackable method to me.

First 5 people with SERIOUS (you have the cash now in hand) will get the email address and contact info from me.. then it's up to you guys to work it out.

Not interesting(right now anyways) but why do you want 5 people? You said you only had 1. Are they supposed to share?

Because that's what I wanted to do. As for info.. like I said.. I'm the middle man.. I am simply hooking two people up... if you wanna know about compatability, ask him yourself.

That's why 5... cause I'm sure 5 people will be interested, but only 1 will actually WANT the turbo.

And I'm not one to waste my time, or anyone else's time for that matter.

As far as I really CARE, no one can buy this. But the opprotunity is still an opprotunity.

I'm simply passing it on. I have my turbo on the way.

Nick:

Honestly dude, I don't know if he's for real or not. So far on my dealings with him on my VF 23 he's pretty legit. Also noting the fact that I obviously now have his whole personal life in cluding his bank telex and account #'s.

As for the quality of the unit? That's why I wanted several people. There will be people who will not be willing to take the chance, for the chance that it's bogus. ]

But in light of the fact that he knows that I can help open the door for him (he's already offered to help supply people at a small profit to him. No... I don't know what that is... yet hehe), I doubt he'll wanna do anything to piss me off. He see's the opprotunity, so at the very least. When I have a turbo in my hand, and it's gone smooth, and others are comfortable with the Apexi units, then I'll really open the door for him.

That's one channel. I'm also working on other turbo suppliers in the US to start picking up the lines that are relevent to our cars.

The more I/We can get in here... the cheaper and faster they'll be available.

Ok... all people who expressed interest have been emailed.

Best of luck!

P.S. BY ALL MEANS, let me know your dealings with him.. Mine have been great and prompt and honest, so far, and if he is legit this may be the connection we've wanted.

Thanks Hunter!

Perhaps you'll find that if you just post the cost of what you can get these units for and your availability, you'll probobly get a bunch of responses up front. Why don't you setup a group buy in vendor forum.

OK... so far only one person has gotten a hold of the seller of the Apexi unit. So I'm bumping this up to the top. I've also been told that these units can be sourced VERY quickly... as well as most IHI units, though the IHI's ARE pulled from STI's they are used, but spun up and tested to make sure they work fine and are in good balance.

The APEXi units ARE brand new.

So again.. BUMP.... all interested in a quality unit for <$1000.

Post up.. Tommorow night I pass contact info out again.

Lightbulb Thank you Jorge!!

I will call and check and see how cheaply I can get them for a group buy. I will need 10 interested parties to make something happen. If any of you are interested in any of the VF series let me know by email or private message. Thanks again.
