    Only place I think you could find a used one would be eBay. I would buy a new one personally though.

    You can check the classified ads here. It might be difficult to find a used entire kit though.

    You may have to try to piece something together from multiple sellers, which could be a royal PITA.

    Amen to that. My Procharger kit from ATI was missing an elbow and the crank pinning kit

    Yeah but they fixed you right? I also agree if one sits down with a reputable speed shop they're likely to get the right stuff and all of it aside from a mistake in packaging easily enough to correct..

    IMHO Putting a setup together alone can definetly be a Pita especially if new @ it.. Doing it a piece here and a piece there can be a nightmare to get together especially when/if prototyping a setup.. Then there's always the fear someone will beat you and get one done before you.. Or the parts you've gathered won't meet your goals.. Always best to have professional insight..imho

    I agree. I researched for about a year for my set-up. Read a lot online and talked to professional installers and tuners. It just goes to show, even when you think you know everything there is to know, and you do all your homework, something WILL happen out of the norm.

    Example - The discharge piping coming off my FMIC hits a part of the hood bracing when trying to close the hood. This isn't an issue on a TransAm, but on a Camaro it is.

    Options - cut the hood or do custom, fabricated piping. I chose the later.

    Mark is getting me squared away with the missing parts. It is coming down to the wire now though. The tensioner bracket I ordered like 2 months ago just now shipped. There was a production issue with the spacers.

    Also, because I didn't go with an ATI tensioner, the belt length I needed was different. Something else I didn't realize.

    OP - do as much research and ask as many questions as you can. The experienced people here will be able to offer some sound advice as most of us have already "been there, done that"
