Not discouraging by any means, I just realistically don't think I'd ever be able to fork over this kind of money despite making a really good salary, at least not right now. I'm currently 26, living with my parents and saving for a house. I'm trying to save as much as I can so I can buy a $300-400K+ house outright or at least minimize the amount of time I'm losing money in interest to the government in the form of a loan .^ you don't need to go all out obviously. I myself don't have a lot of hands on type knowledge and experience.
I think, first identify what you want to do. All good shops can work around your budget and goals with good results.
Don't let this 3:1 ratio business discourage you.
Ps, sorry for hijacking.
Group N is Tube and Fin, which is more than adequate for an STi... I wanted my P/S and oil cooler to match and a Tube and Fin will not suffice for oil. That said, yes, technically the Earl's cooler (bar and plate) is more efficient.Is the Earl's Power Steering Cooler better than the Group N one?
$450 for entire engine, excluding clutch. They quoted me $100 for clutch, so I decided to pass (wouldn't think triple disc will have any issues)What was the cost of all the Cryo work if you dont mind me asking?
Still tired of dumping tons of money... Just this month I've done wire harness, cam gear, fuel rails, more fuel line, - AN fittings, and now it'll be a bit until I can do DSS (so probably not this year).What's an axle compared to so many smiles per gallon
Glad to see you have your car running
