Where to buy UUC products / Question



Im looking to buy a few UUC products but I wouldnt mind buying them locally instead of buying them directly off of the site (stupid duties, etc)

I just need a few simple things like a shift knob (RK6A), Underdrive pullies, and tranny mount bushings...Wouldnt mind getting the evo3 SSK but f*ck is it ever expensive!

The Tunerworks site seems to be down so Im assuming that if I just give them a call Id be able to order something

Where have you guys found the best pricing for this stuff as well

Side Question -- Is there a point in buying the DSSR if you dont have a SSK already installed?

Thanks

Another dealer...

Engineered Automotive
216 Rivermede Road, Unit 4
Concord, Ontario L4K3M6
CANADA
(905) 660 1884 Phone
(905) 669 3940 Fax

I tend to get my stuff directly from UUC in the States.
Their prices are BETTER than their distributors even after you factor in shipping, duties, and the xchange rate.
Plus, you're guuaranteed to have the stuff shipped on time.
Dealing with Canadian distributors of anything made in US has left me with nothing with bad, bad experiences. You're essentially dealing with amateurs here, if not scam artists.

The last item I bought off of UUC was their exhaust (Actiually, made by Corsa for UUC - the sound cancelling thingy), and got promt service from Rob Levinson.
The guys at Engineered Automotive never did return my call!
Phucem, I say!

Buy direct or through Tunerworks. Both are great to deal with.

Mark - I picked up a DSSR, Tranny mounts - black, stainless steel clutch line, and clutch arm bushings - just a bunch of small stuff that is easier to put it while the tranny is swapped...he couldnt really do anything just cuz the items are small and not as if im buyin a clutch kit or anything (yet) lol

Hes a good guy...Apparently he uses USPS instead of UPS which UUC uses so you dont get murdered on brokarage fees when you go and pick it up so even right there youll save a bit
