TBH thats small change for most scooby owners,
I spent 10k in 5 months on the last project I did,
Thats just parts as I do all my own mechanical work,
The scoob in the first year had as much as that spent also but over about 10 or 11 months,
Ive just committed to another 3k for bits and bats and a new turbo(VF30 for sale soon 28k miles from new).
Its only money and you cant take it with you.


Edited : to be right Ive only actually spent 6k on this car and ive owned it 15 months,
Ive just sat and added the receipts up lol

Re: Scary

2k is good going and very easily done. I hate to think how much I've spent over the past 15 years. I've modified most of my cars spending 's each time. The currant project is the biggest I've undertaken and is going to have the biggest cost by far !

Re: Scary

No need to spend silly money to get decent figures: Vf 28 turbo 42k - mint 150,afterburner heatwrapped decat downpipe - 105,afterburner centre section - 45,ninja 2 backbox, 2 months old - 40,sti intercooler 50,samco induction hose 40,walbro fuel pump - 55,k& n filter - 35,3 port boost solenoid - 30.00,sti strut brace - 40.00,tar ox front grooved disc+ 1155 pads - 120, rear grooved disc 45,blitz boost gauge - 20. Add this to one remap from Bob Rawle - 460.00 and car makes 324 bhp- 322 lb/ft and boost to 1.4bar,have spent cash on other mods like sti lights,blitz dumpvalve ,etc but the main money to improve the cars performance and enable it to stop better has probably cost me less than 1500 and the car is 50% up on power from when it left the factory and more power than a std sti - result.

Yes very easlily done on low budget if your prepared to trawl ebay for cheap parts or know mates with parts etc, ive done partially the same but with new parts etc, ive got from 215bhp to about 270 bhp for 2000 and that included new BC coilovers that were 600. Another 600 will take me to 330bhp there or there abouts
