Default What's the condition of the hypo S car (if you have a potential on the hook)?

There is tons of plug and play goodness for these cars, but they are all getting a little long in the tooth (as you saw first hand with Eric's red S4 you took up to ASW a few years ago), so you may want to factor in some incidentals after a pre-purchase into the budget equation. Hopefully, the 'incidental' list won't be nearly as bad as his old car was.. ;-)

You're also welcome to drive my 400 whp version, should you want to venture futher down the slope..

Good luck.

Default Is your set-up made for a simple rs2 mani., do you also use a modified stomung downpipe....

...bottom end is sort of built (stonger rods).

Default Not really....any mechanic can throw an engine together...there is some "black art"...

...involved in getting it done "right"...seriously. Ppl that do it right...know they do it right, and charge accordingly...

Default Much, much better shape than Eric's

That said would expect to maybe spend a grand just on the incidental type stuff you mention.

I may have to take you up on driving your car some time... where are you located?

Default Cost me $4k to rebuild the suspension and do brakes alone...

No labor in that price either (as I did it myself). I wouldn't do it again (i.e. I hate suspension work). That was a complete teardown and rebuild of the suspension on my old S6A and with european S6 "Sport" Avant springs + Custom Valved Bilsteins.... But, like I said...

To do it "right" is gonna cost more than $5,000.

Isn't the turbo like $1000, and the EM is darn near that. Brakes will run another $1000 or more, etc... It adds up.

Albeit, I think the 034 EM looks like its even better and cheaper.

Default Broomfield area. That's good, his poor old car..

The guy that bought it actually bolted RS2 goodies up to it and then flipped it to someone else (or so I heard); an interesting transaction for sure..

Shoot me a note anytime, and we can work something out. The streets need to dry out a bit before hand, but then she's all yours (oh and bring a diaper) ;-).

Default "They are all getting long in the tooth..." Maybe _your car_ is... ;-). Jason, come on down...

We'll have beers, and talk about RS2. I've been thinking about upgrading as well.

Default Here's my budget for similar mods, but GT2871 not RS2 turbo

Big Black brakes - $1250

Bilstein Sport/H&R Sport suspension - $770
Camber plates - $300
Rear shock spacers - $25

GT 2871 turbo kit - $1765
034 RS2 manifold - $995
Exhaust gasket kit - $160
RS2 injectors (used) - $250
Software ~ $750
Samco boost hoses - $325
Stromung exhaust ~ $1400
Misc fasteners ect ~ $500

This is for all new parts except where noted and lands you $10 shy of $8k.

The smart thing to do is spend $10-12k on a nicely modded car and be done with it and save yourself thousands.

I'm starting to wonder about your point to be honest...

Default If you can find a car that already has the mods you want you will save a ton!

Even if it doesn't have all the mods you want you'll still be ahead. At best only 1/2 the cost of mods is reflected in the purchase price of a modded car. Often it's much lower than that. It's pretty easy to find nice clean cars with suspension and brakes, full RS2 is pretty common as well. You can't be as picky when looking for a modded car and you will have to travel to find the right car, but the savings will be huge if you manage to find exactly what you're looking for. Even if you compromise a little on the car or the mods you want you'll save big.

I bought my car with the suspension I wanted (Eibach/Bilstein sport), a chip and 17" wheels that I really liked. I didn't look for an RS2 car because I really want a GT2871 turbo for quicker spool. It will cost more in the end, but I'll get what I exactly what I want.

Default Some might say...

...that "doing it right" would include a full suspension rebuild.

I think that's on the extreme end of "doing it right", which also might include honest-to-Pete RS2 cams, RS2 MAF, injectors, 044 FP, FPR, FMIC in addition to brand-spankin'-new turbo and EM.

Oh, and the labor to get it all done. That's gonna add up REALLY quick. To a big bill. WAAAAAY over $5k. And in the end, you're gonna get 380-420HP, max?

But on the other end is OEM (like '92 springs) OEM MAF, used turbo and EM, OEM AAN cams, BBK, OEM FP and leaving it at that. Yes, you're probably leaving some power on the table. How much? 30-50HP, max? I dunno about you, but that 50 HP sounds REALLY damned expensive! And really, you're not giving up any reliability.

Speed costs. How fast do you wanna go?
