Then minus shipping you're looking at roughly $3626.04 and that is without installation and tune. You can't install it all without flat bed towing the car to a tuner which will cost you a pretty penny. Plus, most initial tunes will run you $500-700 for a first time tune. Re-tunes being lower. You're already over 4k...before you tune. I won't get into questioning some of the parts ordered either....its personal preference. But, I wouldn't even waste my time on the BOV if I was you.
Damn my pricing came out to around that... Did you do some searching?
And just a quick background about the 4K is that my company is sponsoring me. This is the initial set-up and next year might be more plus the 5k i get for income tax. So anything else i will pay for.
Hey man i want you to question and i completely appreciate your input. I am fully able to install all of these parts. I have a full tool chest, a garage and know my way around this car.
I have an uncle with a flat bed so i am not worried about the tow just need a 30 rack and he will be happy haha. The 4k is just on purchasing the parts and the tuner i am hoping to go to is only 40 miles from here plus if i really need to i know a performance shop that could give me a limp map to make it there if need be(which i will choose the flat bed to be safe as i knock on wood the flat bed doesnt get stolen by UFO's or some crazy ****) they just dont have a dyno.
Parts are from Rallysportdirect(Turbo,FP and EBCS), Ebay(Injectors,Sway bars,Struts,BOV and scoop), and FMS(intercooler). i know right?... ebay... this is where i cross my fingers and hope my research and luck has not run out with them..
I was going with the snow shovel scoop lol. Is there a reason why i wouldnt want this besides extra drag? I figured with the larger turbo, larger intercooler i would want more air to come in. Is this not what i should be looking for? I ask to learn and verify my plan... but i do like the look of the bigger scoop.
Again thanks for any and all input.
