+1 on the saab part - too much money would have to go into that thing to get that much power and even then, it wouldn't run reliably, almost any motor you double-triple the HP would do that..

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...

I live my life a quarter mile at a time. Nothing else matters: not the mortgage, not the store, not my team and all their bullshit. For those ten seconds or less, I'm free.

Ask any racer, any real racer. It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile; winning's winning.

AND THAT'S WHAT YOU SHOULD DO, smoke that saab y0 lol

Great car isn't it..that, the cobras and supras are the only ones I know of that you can throw power at without it breaking easily (if your smart about it!)

guess i was talking about the more reliable build with top of the line parts. and the evo x's are having trouble pushing 500 hp on the stock block. the old iron blocks could handle it but the new aluminum blocks arent as stout

Which dyno did he use? Never-ever land dyno?
Stock turbo can't produce 460whp, much less on ebay IC.

And what a joke this thread is. The OP doesn't even verify what kind of engine is in the car. You can have him start up and immediately pick out by engine note alone.

I don't care if you bet $50 and lose. But you won't pay up? WTF?

Do your a car a favor and don't mod it at all.
You're not ready yet. What you need to do is ALOT of reading.

Get a JB3, rape him by a mile and collect the $500.

He will basically be paying for your tune.
