Hmmm. Mine was about $2k more through Aerosport, all other things being equal. Dunno why that would be.

Default engine

I went with Dual EFII, Cold Air, 9:1, Heavy Rods, B&C starter and Alternator, and Reiff Preheat. The Quote they sent me was about $10K more than I paid at Barrett for the same setup.

It was on par with the Thunderbolt, though. At the time, Thunderbolt didn't want to build the engine my way, either.

Mine was dual SDS, CAI, 9:1, Skytec starter, B&C alternator. No heavy rods or preheat.

Quotes were configured the same with the same options except for the B&C starter vs the Skytec one that Vans provides. All that other stuff are options that were not included in their price.
