MSD Box to run factory coil setup= $400 (summit website)

Besides little misc shit.. that's $2,250.... thats with all new parts except for the motor.... there was a guy selling a 6.0 LQ9 already had a cam, intake, carb, and MSD box on Craigslist. Motor had 90k on it. He was asking 2500 for a month or so before dropping the price and then finally selling it.

You forget flywheel... Torque Convertor... Bell housing to make the AOD work... Shifter... And if he didn't want to use the AOD... Now he needs a transmission... And drive shafts... List goes on and on and on...

The best bet for his situation is to stick to the SBF and transmission he has... $$$ for $$$ a Windsor will also beat the "All mighty LSx"...
