Default Looking at buying A&A kit, kit questions and best place to buy ?

Looking at purchasing a A&A kit for my 2003 z06 Does the kit include everything I need to bolt on supercharger and go besides have it tuned after I install or is there extra items I need to buy? Also where is best place to buy? Should I wait for a certain time of year to get a deal (Black fri or cyber Monday or some other holiday sale)?

thanks

Contact A&A direct, see if they have any "new-used" kits in stock. They are complete kits with a pre-owned or trade-in head unit with the rest of the kit brand new and warranty. Marked down a good bit as well.

Blownbluez06 is a dealer for them and hard to beat him for support and questions on the install.

I am not simply a re-seller of A&A product. I install and tune systems in C5, 6 and 7 which gives me the ability to help my customers beyond the basic questions. I answer my phone 7 days a week when I'm able and return calls when I can't. PM me if I can help.

I'll say buy from Bret as well. I bought my Haltech Elite and most of my motor build through him and he has been an incredible help putting it all together.

Another Vote to buy from Bret. Best dude you can deal with for total support.

As a Brett, I enjoy hearing all this support and pretending it is for me. I never hear my name in public. Not in Connecticut, anyway!

I can say that the guys at A&A offer excellent product support, even years down the line. I'll also send you a PM.

Totally Off Topic Here;

Bro, I recently had to travel to Danbury for business and I could not believe the condition of the roads up there!!
I said to myself there's no way I could drive my car here, I'd have to sell it. My rental SUV was taking a beating

I know this is a bit of an older thread, but I just purchased an A&A kit from Bret and he is doing the tune and install as well.
Glad to have him locally, he has been great to work with through the build and is always willing to answer any questions that I might have.
If you are thinking about purchasing a kit, don't hesitate to ask him first.

Only thing I don’t like about the A/A kit is the spacers to lower the radiator cradle. My car is slammed and that puts the cradle closer to death.

I’d prefer having a tilted radiator cradle like ECS has. A/A’s solution is much cheaper though.

Interesting, didn't know the ecs has a tilted cradle. Wonder if you can buy one separately and use it on the A&A kit?

OP these kits include everything you need except for a tune. A&A recommends custom tuning and does not offer canned tunes. If you're willing to come over to IL we can install and dyno tune your set up. We've had excellent results with A&A systems
