My Evo3's gearbox seized up after 15 months. It's in the shop now, and they're trying to contact SA to get help with the repair, but they haven't heard back. I found the Amazon listing shown upthread, but there are no more available there. Where can I order a replacement KS3 from?

Sorry to read that.

Perhaps here, the price seems not so bad (for Europe):

From where are you, please?

I'm in Austin, Texas, USA; that does look like a pretty good price, even with shipping. I'll hep my repair shop to that in case their repair attempt doesn't work out. Thanks!

Ah? Even with shipping - that's surprising me :D

You do not have to pay customs duty I believe; there is a limit of ~800 $ - is that correct?

However, in that case (U. S.) I'd recommend also to ask Bill:
