Not in Austin. I recently had the swap done, and all the normal shops (Motion, Prewitt, Colvin) wanted $1300+. We have some bad-ass modular tuners here, and they are pricey. There may be a few here that can do it for that price (I doubt it) but I wouldn't let them near my car. You get what you pay for!winters98gt said:you should be able to get it done for around 550-800 bucks.
I'm not trying to be a tool, but think of it this way:96BluOvl said:call around I think that is too high for the swap! Unless they are including tuning afterwards then that is a different story!
Like I said, in Austin nobody will do it for that cheap. I guess he can go to Houston. Regardless of how much time it can be done in, if a shop charges jobs by the manual (hours), that's usually what you have to pay. You really aren't reading what I'm saying here. The cheapest I got quoted was $850 but I had to purchase the parts thru the shop, which was $1500, whereas I paid under $1200 from Stinchcomb.winters98gt said:Nope, my ride is blue, some bad pics
I go to austin a lot to visit my friends at UT a lot. 1000+ is way too high. The headswap can be done in much less time then 20 hours regardless of what the manuel says. Houston Performance qouted me 1000, Strictly Performance 600, Street Performance 700, and CXI racing(Corvette and Viper shop) 550. I went with CXI and they ended up charging me around 700 bc I did not have all the parts and they had to keep my car for over a week untill I got them.
