its a z6
its a6 motor with a y8 head
A6 and Y8 head actually....
*edit* beat me to it.......
they want over 10 grand for that car
Parts alone are over 10 grand. And think of all the labor and tuning involved. Well worth it if you think about it.
a $10 i/c coupler lost them a $10k car.. Thats gotta suck...
The guy who owns my old civic knows that guy. its the real deal.
i wonder if the guys over at FR will try and win it back......
nope cause they said the car wasnt worth even 5 grand. it was a hackjob according to geoff
As noted by the oil bottle catch can.
does anyone know when that shit airs...??
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.
They're just hatin on the car because its a D-Series....
If it was a turbo ls/vtec everyone would be busting a huge nut all over it.
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.
Oh yeah... definately nothign to a shop like FR.. I was saying that to Joe Schmo off the street its worth the money...
