There are certain situations where we need to request customer/client to wait for fair solution or cost. for example -

In a telephonic call client randomly asked to share your thoughts and price to develop XYZ in the existing software. I know 4-5 ways to develop the same thing and not sure which one is best suited and the cost for it. I replied him something like below -

"Hey John, These (Blah blah..) are the way to do this and it’s too early to decide the best one and its cost right away . i need sometime and will get back to you via email by today or first half tomorrow".

is there any impressive phrase in English which can reduced few sentence ? if i am grammatically wrong anywhere in above sentences please correct. or sugesst some shortest way to pass the same message.

If by early, you mean that you want more time from him to make a decision, (that's what the situation tells me), I'd recommend a legitimate use of

Sorry, but as you see choosing the [an adj that describes the quality of the way you choose the best; e.g.: optimum, most productive etc.] way is hard to do instantly/at the moment. I'll need more time to put my thoughts together and will be able to respond in ...


revised for grammaticality and common usage (USA):

there are n ways to do this: —Blah —Bleh —Bluh

"But I can't determine quickly which of these will {work best/be the quickest/cost the least/be the optimum solution}. "<-- depending which you think is most important to him "So I need some time." (<-- note 2 separate words) " I will get back to you via email today, or [at the latest] by {noon/midday} tomorrow".
