Whenever we've calculated the costs of the conversion ourselves, we would regularly come up with $60,000-$70,000 -- but that also included stroking the V10 at the same time. So without stroking the V10, I would think the best-case cost of the V10 conversion would be approximately $40,000-$50,000. And by the time you sort out all of the special car programming needs, I'd put the cost closer to $50,000 than $40,000.
PG, did you ever sort out the drop off in the middle of the torque curve on your stroker motor?
