I am going to run an introductory price for forum members for my Vacuum Block kits.
$42 shipped for the kit, normal MSRP will be $55 shipped after this introduction is over.

Please reply to this thread if you are going to get one. I will keep a running list in this post.

You can pay now, or when they are ready - that is up to you. If you do not use PayPal, you will have to wait until the website is up, because that is how I will process credit cards.
Paypal is [email protected] - Please put your member name in the comments of the payment.

The product has been running successfully on our own members car @Dmo1. The development thread for this product can be found here as well as his testimonial.

What do you get in the kit? Here are the details. This will also be available on my website when I launch the site mid-next week.

1 - Vacuum block with installed o-ring (seals like the factory sensor)
2 - Aluminum vacuum fittings
1 - Plug with-o-ring (in case you don't use both ports right away)
2 - cap screws

The part will be ANODIZED BLACK

That's crazy lol. I ship things to my aunt in BC all the time using the using USPS and never spent close to that. FedEx and UPS are just retarded when it comes to shipping costs.

Actually just looked at my last box I sent and it was $24.95 for the small flat rate international of up to 4 lb. I would send him a PM or email to see if there is anything he can do to ship with another carrier.

Mike, it will not be this much.
Shipping this part to you will be about $20. There's an error in my cart software somewhere and I will fix it.

You can paypal $58.80 to [email protected] if you want and I can mail it tomorrow.

It's been an intermittent problem with some users of the block.
If you sit still at idle for too long, the block will heat soak and take quite a while to come back down in temperature. This can be worse in hot summer months for those who see regular 90+ degree temperature days.
I notice this with the block installed in my car, but it's never consistent. I'm not in stop/go traffic enough for it to take place, but the potential is there.

When I say too long, I mean sitting still with the car on for longer than maybe 5 minutes at normal operating temperature.
If it gives you any trouble with it let me know. Since you are in Canada I don't think this will affect you as much or if at all given your climate.

I have a new version designed but it won't be available for a couple months. It is about 10% shorter, and 15% lighter and made of a special blend of plastic that I am trying out. It should address that soaking issue for people in the hotter climates.
