What's a pulled L92 worth? About $5,500?
So figure, buy an LS9 for $20k and sell the stocker L92 for $5,500 means it ends up costing ~$14,500 just for the swap.
Or, if you take the stock L92 out, have it built up professionally like the LS9 and it would probably wind up costing ~$5000, maybe more. Then throw the blower on for another $6,000, we're talking a minimum of $11,000 to use the stock engine and get basically the same thing.
So, you wind up saving probably $3500 or less building it versus just buying the LS9. Tough call as it seems to be pretty close as far as pricing goes, I guess it would depend on what kind of deals you could get.
