Default Trickflow kit

Is there a place to get it cheaper than $2700? How much do trickflow dealers get it for? I'm paying $1000 to have it installed and I feel like I'm getting got for another $500 or so on parts mark up. Am I right or wrong?

Unless you are a member over on Corral, there are a couple vendors. Other than that, Trickflow is owned by Summit, so buying it from Summit is probably your best bet unless you find one of the aforementioned members

have you thought about doing the install your self? I understand its not for everyone BUT I do believe there is a lot of knowledge to be gained that way. the car will have issues and the more "in tune" you are with it the better. no better feeling then driving your baby knowing you did that..

I wouldn't attempt doing it yourself unless your fairly handy with tools and have a fair understanding of the 5.0 engine. It's not a job your going to knock out in a few hours. It took me a couple weeks working on the build on my days off.

I'm actually a mechanic so normally I would do the install. The problem is that I'm in England and my car is in Arizona.
