04 CTS-V with a little hp persuasion device
Perhaps I'm conservative, but I'd automatically add, say, $500 to the purchase price and send it directly to Magnason for their review. Then, once they have completed their review and replaced all parts that need to be included, have them ship it directly to you. Ask for Dave and he'll take care of you.So how could one tell if this is complete or not? I'm hovering above the trigger here! I guess if a few parts are missing, they could be purchased from Magnuesson directly, right?
For a comparison question, how far would $3000 get me in going with an NA buildup ie: larger cam/ported heads/springs/lifters and headers? I'm not sure how much that stuff costs other than headers (around 1200 which is 1/3 of the 3000 already)
