As far as the Evo goes I'm going to have to disagree about the 15K (although I'm sure you were just throwing out random numbers) I have a friend and although he does all his own tuning (which saves a bunch of cash for more mods) he made 460 whp on stock turbo, ebay intercooler, meth, ebay dp, intake, and spent around $2K on mods or less.. lol.. had they still made the evo8 body style, I may have one also.. you can't come close to the power that car makes with such little money on mods, except maybe a bolt on cobra...
Which dyno did he use? Never-ever land dyno?
Stock turbo can't produce 460whp, much less on ebay IC.
