$13,000 for Installed ESS VT2-575 Super Charger. Is that a good deal ?

Decided to go with the 575 instead if the 535 because it has the coil inputs for the intercooler etc.

Anyway, I was talking to a very informative gentleman by the name of Alex. He owns a tuning shop about 400 miles away called Alekshop here in California (I live in Los Angeles), the website is http://alekshop.com/

So basically the grand total for the 575 Installed is $13,000 and that includes taxes.


So what do you guys think? Deal or No Deal ?
