If you could build a car like this for $65-70 everyone would have one. I myself know what it has cost to build my car and Terri is in the same boat and its definitely over 6 figures to get a car like this.

like I said, what is taking it that high? Maybe im underestimating the cost of a LSX/TT setup?

im not trying to be rude, im trying to understand. I've compared what I have to what emma has and I dont see another 50-60k on top of what I have complete already.

Yeah I could understand 6 figures including car cost but 6 figures in mods only I would actually be surprised
Then again I am not expert but the 1500 HP UGR Gallardo upgrades cost 110k and the Alpha 12 is only 100k ballpark.

AND by no means am I comparing Gallardo's and GT-R's to this, its just a point of reference... Don't want anybody to take that wrong.

Her car is capable of 2500 hp. It's not silly.

Her engine went through two different iterations as well. On top of that IPS has high prices. I would say its close to where I am saying that's including everything

I would like to say that IPS does not have high prices. They are right in line with other shops that do similar quality work and, in fact, are quite reasonable for the services they offer.

BTW, I'm not going to get into a discussion as to what it cost because, as driyac said, my car has been through several iterations of mods. I have redone many mods more than once. I kept wanting more power and the accompanying mods to support more power. So, I took off parts I had already modded and sold them to buy bigger and better parts. That's how it has worked with everyone I know who has built a big car.

IPS has been awesome in helping me as my goals have changed. They even shipped my parts that I sold.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words on my build... the car is off to get a bit of welding work done right now to get the new fuel cell installed and have the battery relocated so it will all fit.

Not that it matters But I'd say your no where near close. closer to 100k but not 200K. Who cares what it cost al that matters is that is runs 8.4's! Great job Emma good to see everything worked out.
