Hmm . . . they've gone up a little. Those prices you saw were full tilt retail. NOBODY pays retail. Nobody I know. I can get one locally for about 1900. I'm in the parts business though.
Not that I'm going to run out and do that . . . But it is a good thought if someone with deep pockets wanted to do some freeway miles (across the country etc.)
While I'm at it, a 428 dressed up like a 352 and a C6 under there and that gear vendor . . .
Oh and disc brakes on the rear too as well as the front . . . You'd need em to stop a 4200 lb Sq/Bird that would go over 150 miles an hour
