Question Looking for a Supercharger in the US

Hi everyone. My name is Favio, I'm 25 years old from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
This is my first post here, it scares me a bit since this forum is huge compared to our Focus club in Argentina (http://www.clubfocusargentina.com.ar/portal.htm)

I'm writing you because I'm in need of a Supercharger (most preferably Jackson Racing) for my Zetec 2.0L 2000 Focus 4 door saloon which I've been driving for 4 years now.
The charger I want is this one: http://www.nthcoast.com/Products/Foc...percharger.htm but I'm having a very hard time finding it ANYWHERE in the US (I wrote an e-mail to NorthCoast Performance and they replied they don't have it anymore).

Because of work I'm going to the US on May 16 to a show in Atlanta for a week, and I was planning on getting a supercharger before I go and bringing it back with me to Argentina.
Do you know any website in the US selling a supercharger like that one for my engine? Perhaps anyone on the forum is selling one for a good price?
I'd really appreciate any help you can provide me, this is a one shot chance for me since it'd be a lot more expensive if I buy it from here (shipping is too expensive, not to mention customs) and because there is only ONE supercharged Focus in my country (owner died a couple weeks ago in a motorbike accident).

In addition, I have made several modifications to my engine on my camshafts, forjed pistons, etc, so is there anything else I need to buy or modify in order to get the charger to work properly? (No need to mention re-mapping my ECU or upgrading injectors and MAF sensor).
Thank you very much in advance for your help, sorry for the messy post and my not-so-good English.

Fav.

Welcome to FF
I just had a quick look in sell part on here and nothing, You need to check on here each day because they do pop up from time to time.

Are your camchaft and forjed piston for N/A or FI setup????
As for re-mapping your better off getting it done in your own Country, to much dick'en around getting ECU code.
As for CUSTOMS you need to tell the buyer to put on the shipping forum it only costed say $500US and not what it costed you in full thats howo you get around taxs.

Hi, thanks for the quick reply!
My engine setup is for N/A. The re-mapping I was planning on doing it on my own country, installing what we call here "Programmable Injection" (raw translation) in order to take advantage of my Car PC with OBDII reader/scanner/whatever.
As for Customs thanks for the advice, I'll try to do that if anyone who sells me one can write me a bill or something.
Thanks for the reply!
Anyone else please???

Haha! I knew Brad would pop in here. But like a few people already said if it doesn't work out with him I'm sure another one would pop up somewhere.

And if you can't find one can't you just have one shipped to Argentina? (It would be spendy but can't it be done?)

And welcome to the site by the way.

Yes it could be shipped. But price would be rocketed to the Moon and that's not my idea..
Just to give you an example. I have a good friend of mine (a 52 y/o man with a lot of free time and money) who wanted a supercharger just like the one I want for his 2009 Civic SI. Ok, he found it on the US, it costed around $4000 US dollars.
Price in Argentina? Almost $9000 dollars with shipping & taxes.
That's way too much for me right now...
