Thanks LatinVenom, Sting Ya, sbindley.

Just talked to a very reputable company down the street that says most conversions they do end up costing 20-30k with many going for more than that. Add in the cost of a low mileage car and your easily talking 35-40k or more when all said and done.

My LS3 Solstice is still available for $25K with only 18k. No wait, no hassle.
Just start the engine, start driving and save $10,000.

Hmm - stick a set of pistons, rods and valve springs into the stock motor and a bigger turbo, spend maybe 5-6K and have a faster car than the 20K V8 version. Hard decision? I think not!

"I love the sound of that!"……..said no one ever….about a turbo 4.

Sports cars are supposed to give you wood when they start up.

Agreed!!! one of the coolest thing about a V8 conversion is that sound you get when you put your foot into it, but that's a $15,000 premeium for a cool sound!
And to be clear, there are LOTS of guys report people saying they love the sound of the Solo exhaust we use to make our 4 banger turbo music.
Beside my Solo dual center and cat I've already bought, Ive had ZZPerformance quote me 3K for around 400hp. So that makes the V8 conversion 7 times more expensive for the same 400hp.
LOL You could literately buy another low mileage GXP for the price of a conversion.

Going to be putting my 2006 Mallett up for sale...good dialogue on here...will be asking $29,900...agree that it's not a "logical" investment, but it sure is fun at car shows when people do the double take and ask, "did those come with a v8?" Priceless....

Thanks for the update Kevin, last one I remember selling was the red Mallett #41, forum member; 1966Cobra427 recently purchased it. But that was back in September of 14.
[/QUOTE]

Forum member BadgerHound recently put his black #18 Mallet up for sale in Hemmings. I crossposted that one in this thread from his original posting.
