I would part with my system, but nobody is going to pay more than 10 bucks for this piece of crap. How much was your car and how much have you put into it so far?
Dropped $1500 for the car, so far around $2500 into it for all filters, hoses, belts, sensors, brakes, shocks, springs, - small stuff just to get it up to date. But I'm doing mostly OEM except the shocks and springs (Bilstein's and Eibach's) - no Chinese eBay parts in this baby. Everything should be here next week so I can finally get cracking. Gotta get tires next week and hopefully I can then take a cruise around the block! So excited.
The budget is preferably under 10,000 for the car, if I'm going to do engine work etc. For example, if I were to do the BMW E36 5.0 conversion, I'd be looking to spend no more than 10,000 for the car (although it sure won't cost me that much in this scenario). If it's a car that is pretty much ready to race, but just needs some minor mods, then I'm looking at around 15,000 dollars + the mods I'll be needing to do. If I can go cheaper, that would be nice. I don't want to blow all my money on a car lol.
5.0 swap in E36? S62?
15k+ you pretty much could get anything, but my 2 cents, don't buy somebody else's project car.. 9 times out of 10, they are getting rid of it because of problems with it.
I'm going to go pass my motorcycle license anyways, if I've got some extra money I could dedicate my car as a track only car and have a slower cheaper bike as a daily driver. My dad might get himself a Harley so even if I don't get a cheap bike, the license will be useful. I'm not interested in a sports bike, just something nice to drive around in the city and easy to park on campus.
Don't even get it if your not getting a bike. I thought about doing the same thing but DMW costs + going to a weekend road course to the full license will cost up to $500.
S2000 is dope, go join up a S2000 forum and learn as much as you can.
Sounds like a biased opinion. I will look at the Mustang though, just to make sure it won't break, but as far as I know, I've never heard of people having problems with mustangs. This car will more or less be a race car, but daily driven, if that makes any sense. I don't NEED all the extra fluff that a manufacturer puts in a car. Door panels, seats, etc, all that can go since I don't need it.
Daily driven and race car can't be put in the same sentence. Expect a lot of tickets from police if you plan to drive around in a gutted.. whatever car you choose. But seriously you should get some car that you can drive everyday, put the title in dads name + insurance and your good to go. Then start saving for a separate project car which you can work on when your home. You'll thank me later after your on the side of I-95 waiting for a tow truck because the oil pan dropped just kidding!
Except that my Cobalt is both supercharged and tuned. I've got over 240 HP at the wheels and a powerband so flat from 2K up you might confuse it with Natalie Portman.
Also - weren't we supposed to be talking about your car? I thought the GTI wasn't yours.
Ohh nice nice! Doesn't Chevy offer factory tuning for new cars? Well looks like both you have some mean machines.. My car still has a gutted motor in the garage, just waiting for parts to come in the mail!
Yeah I put the wrong shopping price on Ebay. If it fits in the medium usps box then that's what I'll charge for shopping. I don't know the price off the top of my head and I'm on my phone.
I think it's like under $10 for something light in weight. Cost me like $8 to ship dr bowtie my hard drives in a medium flat rate.
