Comptech Supercharger Kit Groupbuy:

Alright guys, I have had a thread up on Comptech Supercharger prices. However, recently Comtpech raised the dealer cost on these. MSRP has not changed but the cost of what it costs us to buy has increased 5-10%. BUT I want to keep prices low so I have organized an actual Groupbuy. I already have 3 guys who have bought in. I need 2 more guys, TSX or TL, to make this happen. You need to PM me for prices but please don't PM me unless you have funds in hand ready to purchase. I want to have this order ready by the end of the week.

Straight from the Comptech website:

Quote:
Acura TL: Supercharger Package

Comptech has developed a supercharger kit for the TL/CL and Accord that increases power by 40 to 60 horsepower at the wheels depending on the model of car. The supercharger uses a “screw type” design that provides consistent boost and compresses the intake charge efficiently with a minimal increase in the intake air temperature. This combination provides almost instant boost that increases low and midrange torque for excellent throttle response. The kit is complete with cast aluminum supercharger manifolds, all mounting brackets, fuel pressure regulator, Ice Box air intake, all necessary hardware and is designed to provide excellent breathing. The kit requires no major modifications and the car can be easily returned to stock.

The kit requires the customer to purchase a new, smaller battery.

The TL / CL and Accord supercharger kits are 50 state emissions legal.

Product enhancements: Additional power and engine response is available with the addition of a Comptech header and cat back exhaust system and our lightweight aluminum flywheel for the CL 6 speed manual transmission car.

If list is $4495 and you have seen them on ebay for about $4k then use common sense and figure it will be at least be around there. It's not hard to understand that if you don't have at least a few thousand to work with then you don't need to PM me. This Groupbuy is not just pricing. It is an actual GB and the order is being placed within the next 2-3 days. So if you don't have a few thousand ready and are not serious about purchasing then you won't need to worry about pricing. Secondly, the pricing is pretty aggressive so it is better for you and I for me to tell those prices via Private Message.

Sounds like a commercial to me. Looks like a vendor just trying to get free advertising on this site. Comptech is very strict on there pricing. You might save a few hundred on each unit if you buy a bunch, but there not going to give them away. Trust me I know. I have a wholesale account with them as well. Their products are in high demand nationwide with several of them currently on backorder. They don't need to make deals.

whatever it sounds like, he is legit and has saved a lot of people money on this board. He doesn't need to get adversting everyone knows he has great prices and service if you live near his shop. He has had this group buy before for the supercharger and now is just relaying information onto us the consumer. I don't know about you but saving a few hundred dollars is never a bad thing.

I have to agree with the above statement. I've done business with him before and he is a stand up guys, not to mentioned that he answers your questions w/o sales pitch, and have competetive prices.

First off, this is not free advertising. I pay to be a vendor on this site. Secondly, no one is trying to play, "Let's make a deal." I am offering prices to those who are really interested in purchasing and who have funds available. If you are not interested please don't crap up my thread. I offer competitive pricing to people on this board and try and give good customer service. The only person trying to get free adveritising on this site is you, b/c for the second time now you have mentioned you are a Comptech dealer and have been trying to sell via PM. So if you have nothing positive to contribute to this thread please stay out of it!

We need people advertising on this site, nothing wrong with that. I just ordered an intake, headers, full exhaust, and pulleys from him. If I hadnt seen people vouching for him in all my searches, I would ordered from the big sites and have paid about $150--$200 more on the same stuff.

That might be the case PenancE, however sometimes its more than that. I have heard nothing but good said about Excelerate, businesswise and personally. Sometimes its worth that small amount to go with someone you know who will help you out with a product you purchase. Plus he is a AZ supporter

Our trannies arent breaking from power. They are more than strong enough to handle a SC. Its the 3rd gear clutchpack thats just plain under designed

I'd definitely vouch for Excelerate all day long. Will definitely work with you and he is there to support us. Being a former CL owner, he knows what we are looking for and has done the looking for himself, so he knows what the competitve prices are and how "high in demand" comptechs products are. I've been to his shop in CT when my bypass valve on my AEM cracked and ended up picking up a new Injen intake for a great price and I am also inquiring about Rotora rotors from him now. Regaurdless, this thread is not to question the reputation of Excelerate...it's to make people aware of the SC GB since some people don't frequent other sections of this forum. Thanks for your input though.

"heat" kills automatic transmissions. The 3rd gear clutch packs were "burning", with honda seeing temps of 400+ degrees before failure. There is not doubt that there is a more than just a correlation between more power through the trans and heat. More mechanical energy transferring into heat energy. I'm just warning about the obvious reliability issues that comes with supercharging a car with a bad tranny, and advising on following up on comptech's recipie: CT SC+ CT trans cooler+ redline high tem atf+ lubeguard+ CT water wetter. All items should be available for purchase from excelerate.
