I called Goodies Speed Shop today to get a quote to install the LS3 heads and cam shaft. They charge North of $120 per hour and estimate this job to be 30-35 hours. Ouch! So, even if the heads and cam are $1500 + 4200 to install it for a total of $5,700. OUCH!

Ow! :(
Got any other places you can call? Maybe a DIY is an option? I've got a buddy in VA who's got a friend helping him install a cam in his 04 GTO...might take a while but if that's the labor price you're looking at it might be worth looking into.

That's alot of money for an extra 40 hp. The amount of time quoted seems excessive. I would guess it would be more like half of that.

I want to hear the story as well. My brother had an 87' Grand National. Which might be my next car.

He has angered the forum gods!

Good question tho...he sent me a DVD of some of his gopro footage so I could help him get it posted. I think I know what his audio problem is, but I can't fix it with what he gave me.

What could he have said, to have his account suspended? Bad language, lol, I really don't know what it could be.

He did post once or twice about that dry wash system...think he was a distributor? Not sure, but that could be a violation of the ToU for a regular acct

He and Lio have left the building. I'm sure we'll hear from Cornerspeed again. I know he's planning to track his car.

Looks good with your yellow theme. Wonder if they offer one in CRT?

hmm...not sure...i know there wasn't a ton of choices. i'm sure CRT wasn't one of them, but red and carbon fiber were others that i remember.

edit: i'm wrong, there's more options than i remembered for the box, just not the hoses. the still don't offer CRT, but there's RJT lol...here's where i bought from http://www.jdpmotorsports.com/roto-f...ss-v8-10151005
