I was told they charge less than the dealer by hour and then when I brought a Subaru all the way up there I found out there estimates are 3 times as much as the dealer or other speed shops. Case in point, a compression test by them was quoted at $300 and both the dealer and enhancedstreetperformance.com quoted $100. I also told them I don't give a blank check on anything, no estimate, no work, so they didn't bother to tell me how much they were going to charge for an estimate. I ended up paying $300 for a visual inspection and an incomplete write up then I was out of there. Besides the above website which also has an AWD dyno, eastcoastswappers.com is very good and quoted me $2,750 to swap out my H6 SVX for an STi motor. Both of these places are in Mass. SS Automotive in Salem, MA is also respectable.
