Trick flow will probably cost you about 700 more than the pi swap. And installation varies. But trick flow will be a bit more aggressive and pick up probably an extra 20-30 hp.

Well with the pi swap I'd just stick with the pi cams. If you get the trick flow then just get the trick flow cams. It also depends on what mods, kind of driving, is it a dd... Etc. the more info you can give the better

Varies. I've had a dealership tell me 800 once and i promptly gave them the bird. I wouldn't pay any more than 450 personally

No lol. There's ALOT to it and if it goes wrong, best case you ruin spider gears and worst case you lose control and it comes out from underneath you

Your much better off having a shop do it. You need experience to do that job properly. Do it wrong and you'll need another set in a few weeks.

Like butch said previously, prices should be in the 400 to 600 range. Just find a mechanic you trust that won't skip steps, etc.

Pi heads and intake with mild porting and stage 2 comp cams, with a good tune will give you around 80hp roughly. The pi swap alone is good for about 30-40 to the wheels, it raises compression on our 96-98 gt's to like 10.5/1ish. But like they said just do gears and a tuned combo, that way your speedo ain't off, and you don't rack up miles quicker. As for install get a dealer ship would be best, because you have to get the backlashing set perfectly or it'll wine and eat your ring and pinion gear up fasttt.

Hi, just completed a head swap an more last month(SEP). Please do a search on LAS97GT. I swapped non- to ford racing PIs. 10:1 comp, and 44.9 CI. Not much different than trick flows if you ask me. Most pros will steer you away from trick flows since you will have a hard time upgrading to forced induction. I chose stock heads. I can burn rubber whenever I want, and more. Check it out!
