at that price, it's simply not a viable option for literally anyone.. it would cost me the $6.5k price tag, $500 odd in shipping, $1000 headers with $250 shipping, about 15% in taxes, installation.. so about $9500 + install.. say $1.5k for that, about $11k to boost an N52 and get proper power out of it .. add another $1k for an average custom mandrel SS exhaust, $12k to properly set it up

that's ACTUALLY slightly more than it would cost me to get an N54+gearbox and install it to my car (regardless of the fact i'm building the engine for a lot more.. )
