When I talked to Ben a couple of months ago he told me his supply of cores had dried up so he had to have my trans to rebuild. That complicates things as I am risking truck freight shipping both ways. I hate truck freight, it takes forever and stuff just "falls off the dock" way too often. Insurance is just a pain in the ass when something goes missing. UPS quote is $800USD one way, totally traceable but that's a ridiculous cost. I can drive to his place from mine in a day to drop off and pick up, but not now, I wouldn't get across the border and if I did I would have to quarantine for 14 days both times and that's a non-starter. Covid is screwing everything up.I believe you can get a better price directly from Calimer if you provide the core.
Right now, it seems to me the easy button is buy the parts and get a local guy to do the install work. I have a dialogue going now with Syncrotech and will see where that goes, I like the look of their carbon kit. It's a lousy time to try to get things in and out of the US, it's always difficult up here but right now it's ridiculous.
