So it’s a trade in cost for your working engine?

Yes price is exchange for a rebuildable core! if your core is damaged there will be a extra charge of between $200-1000 depending how bad the core is!

Stage 2 seems like a legit opportunity for me. Probably one more season as is, but have a running 496 HO now. What do you say to those who believe you can't safely upgrade a 496? I've looked at Raylar and there seems to be a real hit and miss on satisfaction. Would like to hear your thoughts.

Good question! as far as parts for us its a smart move to change pistons to forged as stock are Hypertectic and very brittle and crack under detonation easily! Rods are forged from the factory and ok for stock applications but make sense if you are going to upgrade the cam and make more power to use the forged 4340 H Beam rods at the same time, both these options are good insurance for your engine.

It is important to get the ECU tuned for the upgraded cam and extra HP but plenty of tuners who can do that for you once installed
