Yes we can do layaway ;)

Build time is about 4-6 weeks from once we receive the car.

That is a great price. No that is a fantastic price!

Does that include the harness changes of any and ECM software?
Yes Rob it inclues the harness changes the ECM software, we build our own harnesses here so we can keep the cost down a bit that way.

It doesn't include the optional LSEdit tuning interface and software package.

Makes good sense.

The cabling is one of the more challenging parts of the build so the fact that you have the capability to do your own custom cables is a real plus. It also speaks to your experience and knowledge which is a huge confidence builder.:thumbs:

what does this setup NOT include that is in your more expensive LS3 installs? Does this retain A/C? I am assuming this retains the stock transmission, is it strong enough to handle the power? and how much more is it to upgrade to a 6 speed?

It does not include -

Revalving of the shocks
WERKS V8 spec Eibach springs
T-56 6 speed manual transmission
More expensive clutch and flywheel combination for the T-56 s speed

Yes, guys have been using the standard 5 speed for years in these conversions without any issues. A 6 speed upgrade is an additional $2500.00

Just curious: Do you have a version of this kit for the DIY or to be drop shipped to one's local shop to install along with instructions and a starter "canned tune"? (IE: are you Dyno tuning each of your in house installs, or do have a base tune you are installing on each in house build?)

Our DIY kits are available here - The Home of WERKSracing products!

It will come with a base tune already installed in the ECM that works fine unless you have some different mods then you may need some additional tuning.

What is the cost of hitting those output goals using the other products you sell to upgrade the LNF engine? Figure you are in a good position to do either.

Have you guys been looking at that new twin-turbo V6 that GM just came out with? Any thoughts about a future engine swap package for that?

Knowing what I know about how much the crate EcoBoost motors cost, that is not going to be a cost effective option, if it is at all similarly priced. The EcoBoost crate motor costs $15k to $17k...

If you can get the cruise control issue worked out I will definately be giving this a closer look...

Crate Engine Depot is showing the LNF for around $3,500 without the turbo. So I was hopeful that was a guideline for the other EcoBoost engines. :lol: I guess GM is pretty proud of their new Tech.
