It would be an open pallet from 95008 to you . Standard pallet but obviously with that tall exhaust piece sticking up. I don't have a forklift here but do have an engine crane and a gantry crane. So liftgate probably required.

Total package is going to be around 800lbs on a standard 48x40 pallet.

I'd suggest uship or similar for quotes. Can't do greyhound or fastenal due to the exhaust.

I'd be interested in the complete custom exhaust piping & will take the complication out of shipping because I'm in Southern Oregon & close enough to arrange pick up when time allows. I'll offer up my current stock 200tdi 110 exhaust piping to the next lucky owner of this drivetrain & can box it up for shipping.
I'm also a little curious about the advantage of terminating the custom exhaust out the side panel...

The outlet trim show here is a SS kitchen sink flange with the back cut off.

I have to say that flange cutout is brilliant! The whole setup for sale sounds like such a great plug and play; I only wish I was ready for that kind of install. Alas, not yet.

made a mistake when posting : does NOT come with the VDO sensor adapter for the egt . it is drilled and tapped
