Default Where to buy turbo parts in Canada

Has anyone gotten an FM turbo kit shipped to them in Canada or any other kit of similar quality? making plans for a turbo build this winter and I need to know where parts are available.

MKTurbo and Kraken/DIY are both options and I'd say more cost efficient compared to FM. If you wanna go baller just upgrade to EFR and less to replace later down the line if you want to do that in the future.

I don't ship to Canada due to the sizes of the boxes. If you live near the boarder I have had several customers get a UPS box or something in the states. Then I ship the setup there, then they drive it across the boarder.

That sounds like a tiny chunk of time compared to the amount of time it takes to research, install, troubleshoot, and tune a turbo miata.

Shipping to Canada is going to hurt no matter what. I have had the majority of the parts for my car shipped to a freight receiver across the border and made a 3.5 hr drive each way and still come out ahead. Ups , fedex etc are all going to rape you with brokerage fees otherwise. The only option is parcel post for smaller items if the vender is willing to go that route .

Being in the same position as you (in Nova Scotia), I've been looking around and Kraken does ship to Canada, and because it's coming from the EU, it's actually cheaper to ship then from the states. Just looked and the 1.8 NB EFR w/ 3" exhaust is € 1150.00 shipped to NS (€ 100 for shipping), so $1732 CAD. Seems quite reasonable to me.

I was impressed with how quick the shipping was on my Kraken stuff shipped to NJ. 36 hours from bulgaria to my door step. It takes more time for me to get things from 2 states away....
