        rules draft 2 sounds good. April 9 we have TnT at willowbank, as long its ready by then i think we can make this good to go as of Jan 1? We may need a list of entrants, should we make a winners prize?

            A lot of you crack me up with your cost estimates.


            Like BeerADDD said, a near stock turbo Volvo 740/760 will do it. Or a decent $200 240 with a $300 740 donor gets some weight out and probably adds SFA to the cost once you consider the spares/scrap value of the 740 wreck.

            $300 for a manual 760T (with fucked turbo), $200 for ex-Skyline Turbo, $100 for Ebay Intercooler, $300 for 3" exhaust, $50 for boost bleed, and away you go.
            The stock 740 ECU even copes with bigger injectors if you feel the need to extend the motor's lifespan to a decent amount...



            And because 7MGTEs keep being metioned: I've got a 7MGTE here - made 212kw ATW in a Crown before the Crown was written off. Metal head gasket. All accessories, manual flywheel, starter, ECU w boost cut defender, and 3" dump pipe. $500 and take it away.

              I agree with all the rules but $1300 is too tight.
              You'll just get everyone using their "free" parts to make budget which defeats the purpose.

              $2000 is doable, allows more options and will promote more honesty.
              Just my opinion but you guys let me s know when you decide.

                also, would it be ok to buy an r32 gtst or toyota soarer not running for like $500 but then spend $500 on it to get it running?

                  Are we counting the money you recoup by selling off unwanted parts?

                        I say no.

                        One could pickup a cheap R32 GTST (insert random jap import boostcrusing shitbox here) for like 2+k then strip bits off it back down to $1300 value.

                        (ie, complete interior, air cond, stereo etc).

                        And no free random parts, every part needs an agreed dollar value.

                        ....Pick your shitbox wisely

                            x2 no selling parts to recoup costs, that wouldnt be fair

                              donated/gifted parts etc. can have the costs determined by the lowest price for the same/similar item on another forum (boost/ausrotary) or ebay in the last 12 months?

                              Also, I'd say that dispute of costs etc. can only be made by other competitors, not opened up to everyone on the forum... which counts me out because I've got nowhere to put a car

                              you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.

                                Check fist post.

                                Turning the car into a shitbox is discouraged. Selling of parts to be replaced is OK, so you can sell the old engine if you are replacing it with a new one. Or sell the old injectors if you are getting bigger ones etc. You can't sell parts of the car which will take it further from being a good street car, like interior, or 4 piston brakes on a R32 etc.
