well I'm doing the whole thing myself... all I'm paying for is the parts. And I'll tell you what I got 180,xxx + but then again I'm doing some serious work since I've overheated and my alternator was about to go....
new OE 140 amp alternator
new head gasket(s)
Fuel injectors cleaned, balanced and calibrated
my wife gonna kill me when she sees how much I've spent... then I'll show her how much I've saved in labor... then I'll go spend what I've saved
. Imma bout to reach the $1k mark give or take $100.
I was going to do a M50 TB and Intake mani, but I don't see that mani bolting up just like that without some mods to it. My many has alot more shit than just 3 holes... that tranny swap is not till next summer anyways but we'll get there.
After that tranny swap the car is going to go thru some nice mods exhaust set up, either a Turbo or Surpercharger dunno yet... Turbo is hella cheaper. Interior, and finnally wheels.
