    well dont even think abot building the y7 as they have horible oiling system in them and are know for spining bearings. as for money you are goingto spend lots 5-8k when you are done with every thing fuel system, engine management, turbo parts, axles, trans upgrades, building the engine and many other things.

    Go all Z6 and build it.

    Do you want to see my Y7? About 100,000 miles.
