depends if you what your after (ported, big turbo, stock turbo etc etc)

this one is around $3000 but he already had alot of parts from the donor car (motor/box, radiator), but sold alot of parts off it ($600 for the rims, and about $300 in other parts so all up i think it has only cost him about $4000 drive in drive out.

(if someone supplies "everything needed" for the conversion...parts wise (motor, box, radiator, fuel system, exhaust, fuel pumps, hose clamps, tail shaft etc etc) i supply the kit for $900 and only charge $8-900 labour to fit the lot)
If something is required/requested when fitting that is extra (Say you supply an engine and have not seen it running etc and i put it in and it has a massive oil leak or needs a clutch etc, then im not going to fix it for free however i will help you out when ever/where ever i can (ill sell you the parts needed dirt cheap if i have them in stock).



Once this is all done i will post up an itemised list of everything that was paid for with prices.

(it will be a fairly long list, alot of little things but in the end they are what add up at the end of the day).

was too rusty to bother fixing unless you like that model car.

It wasnt even a complete car either, if it was a full complete car i would have sold more parts which means more money for the owner (i dont mind finding a donor car and stripping it for free here for them if it means they are getting a good runner, that way it works out well for both the owner and i) nothing worse than putting in an engine etc and have it not run properly or at all.

This one had even had a mircotech MT4 (fuel only) computer, exhaust etc everything else was stock though, still going to put out over 200rwhp though..
