I get lots of deliveries from Rock Auto done by FedEx

 

rockauto and many other suppliers have learned to gain Canadian buyers by implementing a better system

 

if you pay attention to your rockauto bill youll see duties are prepaid/precharged before they ship....they are acting as the broker to eliminate the fee...similar to the pitney bowes global shipping program you see on ebay

 

 

edit: it also depends on the product value and manufacturing origin....some items are duty free depending where they were made...some items that had duty charges last year are duty free now because the value limit of import items was recently raised

This is very funny, mine also showed up yesterday......was just about to post the same...lol...I will now give the seller a very good review for sure...I NEVER expected to see this, I am shocked!   The only thing it's missing are the 3 bolts to join the two parts together, unless I missed them in the box. I'll be looking again today. Had a fellow Smart owner visiting yesterday.   Now it's a simple replace and save old turbo unit just in case plan of attack.   Got to love a nice fresh new piece....

You should be able to get to 16.7!  That's what mine boosts to.

does anyone know at what pressure does the computer spit an overboost code??
