Andi, I remember a few months ago you looked into going single. I seem to remember the cost being around 20K. Am I just making up numbers (very possible) or is this correct? Also, what was included in your package? Thanks alot.

I think Andi thinks about going single everyday he gets into his car! But one of the biggest expensed is labor. If you can do all the work yourself then your total bill should run you around $10k or less. going from BPU to small to mid sized single.

HID lights? ;)

You can reduce the cost of that. A GReddy or RPS kit is $4k, you don't need a BCC with EGR plates and a single. EBC isn't necissary, nothing wrong with a good MBC, although I'll go with an AVC-R for gear based boost. Pre-97s don't need a short throw (IMO). You can get around a VPC if your willing to experiment a little. FMIC certainly helps but the car will still smoke and BPU with the stock SMIC. Gauges, all you really need (IMO) is EGT, boost controller or turbo timer has a boost gauge w/ peak hold (at least mine does). Cam gears obviously optional. And no DP or BOV needed, they generally come with the kit. Mine would look something like this:

T78 - $4000
Fuel system $2000
AVC-R $400
EGT gauge $200
turbo timer/boost gauge $110
Exhaust $600
EGR plate $10
Plugs $10
SFC $270
Short throw shifter $200 (cause '97 shifters suck)
Big Ass Spearco FMIC $800
Cltuch $1500
Hard pipes fab'd $500
Radiator $500
Oil cooler $200
Install and tuning: Me skipping classes for a week or two

Total: $11,300

Toyomoto would prolly charge $3000 for install and tuning.

Maybe new short block in case you melt a piston: $2000

Wew thats expensive, its a good thing I can get a deal on a lot of that stuff :p

Then Teins, 275/315s, Andi's front sway bar + TRD rear, widened stock rims for ultimate sleeper, water injection for 22 psi on pump gas = a lot more $$

Now excuse me while I get back to selling crack to pay for all this shit :D

You are right....

Now, find that setup slightly used and you're looking at $7000-$8000 for a kit. Do the labor yourself, and you're all set.
