Default M90 import to Canada?

Looking to import a complete m90 kit to Canada for my 945. I realize its not going to be cheap but I'm looking to replace my tired AW71L and rather keep things "stock" but don't want the old weaker m46. Looking for advise on where to start looking or if anyone has done it before.

I have some experience doing this in Europe, shipping will be your biggest cost. First figure out who will take a pallet to from Europe to your door, that's the hardest part. Sourcing a m90 is not a big deal around here

If you have a complete kit I'm very much in the market for it.

In 2018 I bought a M90 from a Danish / European used auto part network, autoparts24, and had it shipped to the U.S.. Painless purchase process. I just checked and they have about 10 in stock for 750-1000 Euros. Shipping wasn't too bad when I did it - I think my total in 2018 was about 1300 USD. The one I bought had the shifter and the crossmember included.

Earlier ones have the better ratios, later the better syncros. All need thurd gear stop ring welded up for longevity.

Just wanted to say that I have gotten my M90 from Classicswede about 2yrs ago, a LATER Model M90....Got ALL NEW SEALS for the M90 along with New Shifter and Clutch pedal bushings along with New Master and Slave cylinders...Also got the 3rd Gear STOP RING WELDED for Extra Security even though I got the later model M90 with Better Synchros..Installed it ALL Last December and it was a GREAT X-MAS Present for myself, couldn't be much happier...The car is more exciting to drive as a Stickshift...

You should poke Steve Berube on CVQ. He might have one laying around. Ain't gonna be cheap though.
