I would like to hear from anyone that has installed their upgraded heads and/or bottom end . They seem to have some amazing products (amazingly priced too). I'm looking to upgrade my car by the end of next year and the stage III bottom end with the stage I heads looks pretty schweet!.

I'm waiting for my cams to ship back to me right now. I'm also getting their highlift valvetrain. I have the same valves that cobb uses and they are nice quality pieces. I will try to repost when the cams get here, but I've also bought cusco front and rear tower bars, rear lower bar, and whiteline front swaybar, ACT Clutch and they are very pleasurable to do business with.

Their motor stuff is top notch I just couldn't justify spending 5000 for closing the deck. I'm not planning on running enough boost that that'll matter, so i went with internals buildup. I also couldn't justify the 2500 for heads porting, i just don't see enough of a gain for the amount of labor cost.

But if you have the money, they are the only ones that do this stuff, and they do it right, i highly recommend them.

Oh yeah, almost forgot, I have the sweet ass SR40 on the way, (and us 2.5'ers don't know what lag is)

I have their NA cat-back and it's very nice. Definately speeds up the car a little and the look is very subtle along with the sound. The sound is perfect IMO. It has a nice deeper tone to it but it's not "hey look at me and my exhaust" loud.

Most of their stuff is very good. The only warning I would post about them is that some of their stuff is rebadged other products which are good quality but they usually charge more than you can find the same products elsewhere. Even for their own stuff, they charge a little higher than average. But if you wanna spend the money, quality is no issue.

I agree with obsidianRS on the repricing. I won't be specific as I respect cobb as a company, but I did save quite a bit of money on a part by getting them custom made direct from the manufacturer versus cobbs markup on the part. This really has to do with the dealer manufacturer relationship. Some companies just wont sell an item to a dealer for much less than they sell them to the end user. Thus the dealer still applies their standard markup to the items to compensate for shipping charges, stocking fees, and order processing, oh yeah, and profit
