    Parts alone are over 10 grand. And think of all the labor and tuning involved. Well worth it if you think about it.

    Hackjob or not.. Thats a hell of a car for being worth $5k...
    turbo Manifold = $1k
    intake manifold = $700
    turbo = $700
    i/c = $500
    EMS = $1500
    injectors & pump = $500
    traction bars = $500
    headwork = $2000
    pistons & rods + rebuild = $2k
    Coilovers = $1k
    Axles = $500

    Just pullin numbers out of my ass on basic stuff, your at about $11k worth of parts alone, not including the car..

    Hell... Grab all the parts off the car, swap it into another car, and you've got a BANGING car.

    you still gotta realize that most of the parts are their own, and technically, don't cost them anything.
    all in all, this can be written off on their taxes as a business thing.

    mani is maybe 150 in parts.
    turbo, they sell them, so i'm sure they are cheap.
    same deal with the ic.
    they helped create neptune. its software, not hardware.... free.
    bars, they sell for 350, and i'm sure its much less to make.

    you get the picture...

    to you or me, sure its a lot of cash in parts.
    to them, its left overs, in house stuff, and one big write off.
