450 upgrade???

Hi Ron,

What do they want to charge you for that 50hp upgrade?

I can show you the performance numbers on both models and you will see that the cost may not be worth the investment.

Post me directly : stanadelman@attbi.com

If the cost is over $5,000 or more, we can show you a better way for about the same money and you will get more HP than 50 ponies.

Stan

50 hp sounds like a cam upgrade, some head work, etc. Stick with a local (but reputable) shop and you'll keep $$$ in your bank account.

I'll lend some personal experience to dealing with Callaway about attention to detail (off forum via email). Post me if interested. Just trying to help out! I can also give you some advice (along with Stan) as to how to get some more ponies out your car.

they quoted me around 4 grand for the upgrade, includes, cam, heads, new stainless headers, exhaust. I'm looking to remain with callaway for the work, that way when I do decide to sell it's documented that they performed all the work. I don't want to start getting into several different shops doing this, the resale value will certainly drop. I'm willing to pay a little extra for the quality that I know they have

Hi,

I emailed you directly earlier today with the performance numbers you wanted.

$4,000 is just too much money for what they will do. Suggest that you consider spending around $6,000 or so and David F can show you several other ways to get 100hp+ and without changing out one Callaway part. This will keep the Value in tack!

Take care,
Stan

And were exactly did you determine that they have quality these days? You can email me if you'd like to discuss this.
