It's a hell of a lot, and that's not including what he already forked out on turbos and up/down pipes etc before blowing it up (forcing his hand with the rebuild).
Due to the power target and mods he's also going to have to (or been strongly advised) switch from an emanage blue to a Haltech which will be another couple of K.

Modest power increase for a lot less cash (supercharger/small turbo on stock engine) wins the day for me, but it's not my build and I have to give him credit for seeing this through and trying to get what he can out of it.

I'm curious to see how close the final figure will be to fto007, because it's a lot less money than he spent (even though it's lots for an FTO).

Not everything is relative to the value of Evos :lol:

Apparently north of $100k, though I forget what portion of that was spent exclusively on engine work.

nvm, found the carsales ad, it was over $50k. Similar shopping list though. https://carsales.mobi/cars/details/1998 ... AD-2543917

Engine going in, slowly.

Anyone know about the flywheel washer plate thing? we're doing a manual conversion at the same time and fitting a Fidanza flywheel, I presume we need to fit this plate between the flywheel and flywheel bolts?

Vernier cam gears, i'm not touching those.

Engine is in, also new lightweight flywheel, clutch and manual gearbox.
Still lots to put back though, it's far from finished.
