Cost to mod, and to what power level: 2.0t and 3.8

I've been considering how much it would cost to mod the 2.0t and/or the 3.8. Therefore, I have approximated the cost to mod your car, and the approximate powerlevel you would achieve.

2.0t, from stock, cost of base model new, $22K, puts down about 175whp stock
Cost to mod 2.0t, and to what power level:
tuner $700 (reflash $500)
intake $220
downpipe/testpipe $200
exhaust $850 Buschur Cat back
----$1970, 234whp (a gencoupe owner has reported that a 3" turbo back exhaust, cold side piping, intake, Waste Gate Actuator, Block off plate and Forge BOV... had taken him from 185whp to 231whp, no tuning, the 234whp number at this level may need to be adjusted to 250whp, although add about $450)
intercooler kit $1k (or just a intercooler if the stock pipes can be used someway)
custom tune $300
----$3270, 250whp
upgrade compressor wheel and bored turbo $700??? Could be more
upgraded injectors $400 (will need 750cc for mid 400whp, so might as well go there)
TiAL BOV w/flange from Buschur $275
custom tune $300
----$4945, 300whp
OR get a turbo kit with everthing preselected: Lovefab Turbo Kit $7200 ($6700 introductory price) gets you 382whp; another coming from 7ism also said to be about $7K

Fuel return line kit $300 (not needed according to lovefab at 382whp)
rod swap $2100 (Buschur Racing has pistons and rods for ~$1400, maybe $700 install, you can also ask Beyond Redline which has a fully built long block:rods, pistons,cams,head work, head studs, could be just as a precaution since the rods are known to be risky, while the others are unknown)
GT3076 $1500
upgraded wastegate $200
Turbo adapter $100?
Walbro 255lph fuel pump $100
custom tune $300
Twin Disc Clutch $800 with install
---- ~$10345 at (Beyond Redline currently at 400whp, could hit 450whp w/more tuning, as predicted they hit 466whp on 8/24)

3.8, from stock, cost of base model new, $25k, puts down about 250whp stock
Cost to mod 3.8, and to what power level:
intake 220
exhaust $850 Buschur Cat back
headers $1k
tuner $700 (reflash $500)
------------$2770, 300whp (a gencoupe owner has reported that ARK headers and Injen CAI has given a 33whp gain alone, the 300whp number at this level may need to be adjusted to 310-320 whp)
cams $1500? hopefully less, current offering at that price
custom tune $300
-------$4570, 330whp
Turbo Kit?
------$??? $450whp

3.8 is much simpler/reliable to make 300whp, it's not considered the "tuner" which means warranty won't be such a problem since you know that the dealer will be more critical with the 2.0t... Yet, the 2.0t may be cheaper to get to 450whp, but not 300whp.

Which to get, which to get?

This isn't a debate thread. This is a thread to try to hammer out what the pricing is to get to what power level on what motor.

If you see anything that may need adjustment, please let me know, and I will consider modifying.

These are meant to be average figures, not low end (I made the intercooler in my back yard), and not high end (I paid someone to give me the best intercooler EVER to handle 2000hp).

Edit: Looks like if you want to be in the 300whp range, then you either pay $6700 on top of the 2.0t price, or you pay $2770 on top of the 3.8 price. Or roughly, $28.7K for 382whp (going base 2.0t $22k plus 6700) or 27.77K for 300whp (going base 3.8 $25K plus $2770). So, essentially, if you mod out (NA stays NA, turbo stays turbo), then you get 82whp for about $1000 more going 2.0t... You could also add cams to the 3.8 and narrow the gap, to only 50whp difference, but then you also paid $500 more for less power than had you gone 2.0t.

Disclaimer:
Dyno's are all different. Some are high-reading, and some are low-reading. It could also be a hot day, or a cold day. High altitude, or low altitude. It could high humidity, or low humidity. It could be a load bearing dyno, and could have an operator that loads the dyno/car differently. It could be a hub dyno, and not a chassis dyno. The temperature sensor could be giving a higher reading than actual, or a lower reading than actual. I think you get what I'm saying. Dyno's are all different.

Edmunds typically reads high numbers on the dyno they used. On the stock 3.8 they dyno'ed 279, and on the stock 2.0t they dyno'ed 197. Those are high readings. If you don't believe me, good luck.

I just went with what is typical, not low (ex. mustang dyno), and not high (ex. dynapack, or the dynojet that Edmund uses)

Pretty good list from the looks of things.

That being said, I understand that the 3.8 cams aren't suitable for turbo, perhaps I mis-read, but that would save a few bucks if you are going turbo anyway.
Based on a quick google, decent turbo and supercharger kits (turbonetics, vortech, hks) for the 350z are around $5-7,000, and I'd estimate that is a reasonable guesstimation for price until something more concrete comes out.

well... considering Buschur's Stock Appearing Turbo Upgrade, and assuming there's no Flash counter on the ECM...

on the 2.0T, you could potentially be at 350whp while retaining the warranty.

and this may cost somehwere in the ballparks of $4,500?

intake $220
exhaust $850 Buschur Cat back
downpipe $200
tuner $700 (reflash $500)
intercooler kit $500
custom tune $300
upgrade compressor wheel and bored turbo $700
Fuel return line kit $200
TiAL BOV w/flange from Buschur $275

Cost = $4,445

If my math of your math adds up correctly, they total almost exactly the same.

22000+3270 = 25270 250whp 2.0t 25000 250whp 3.8
22000+5245 = 27245 300whp 2.0t 25000+2770 = 27770 300whp 3.8

Looks like it will really depend on if people want 250 from the factory or not. It would certainly be easier getting warranty work if all you've done is I/H/E.

What is required for a new FS thread?
  • Detailed title of item
  • Detailed description of item (specify if its new, used, etc.)
  • Contact information (Phone number OR email preferred - not just Private Messaging)
  • Asking price
  • Location (State if local pickup or if you will ship)
  • Actual Photos of the item
Any of these missing means your thread will not be approved.

Looks about right... except you forgot the upgraded injectors, $400, and your math is off, your total is $2945. I also don't think you'll find an intercooler that will work for $500, but anythings possible. If you find a way to make a fuel return line kit for $200, rather than $300, post up a parts list, pricing, and how to, when you get to it. Everyone will much appreciate that, while the $300 is just a rough figure I cam up with. I also added in two custom tunes for $300, since people will likely want to break the 250whp barrier with it, and need it again at 300-350whp.

So, that's my additional $1300 I calculated.

Edit: Buschur is close to having the pricing on the stock appearing turbo with upgraded internals. They say that the turbo will be good for 350whp. I'll be updating those cost and power when they release their pricing.

idk... i think the stock injectors would be alright? are they really that maxed out?

Superdrift offers a FMIC for 500 along with instructions for using stock piping... i think its a couple hundred more for extra piping... beleive it or not, they are offering the best deal on an IC.

the tuner would suffice... u dont need to tac on an extra $300 for a custom tune every 100hp..

i'm not sure why you would tune 3 times.... that's a grand right there wasted IMO.

This is also VERY early on in the market. I think our 220 intakes will be short lived. Others are already coming out at 179... and the prices on things like this are only going to drop as demand and comeptition raises. Plus, as time goes on you will learn what works from watching other people try stuff. The shops are doing a good job for us now, but there's still a lot of 'people' testing to be done.

I'm likely not touching my car for 2 years or so (any serious mods at least) for this exact reason. I see prices in the future cheaper, and i see parts in the future with more RD and track hours behind them. We're in the gold rush right now.... but who made money? Levi Straus.

I'm a Engineer/tuner, that's why. I believe in tuning your car to have it run safely, and at it's maximum performance without hurting a thing.

The basic tuner ($700) will be fine for basic bolt-ons. Once you beyond that, you'll need/want to have it custom tuned. At 250whp, you'll likely sit at that power level for some time while you save up for the next major step ($2k for 100hp), it will be in your best interest to tune it to have the most joy out of it and piece of mind, and you will want it custom tuned to be able to show for all the hard work you put into it, aka bragging rights. At 300-350whp, you plainly want that 350, not just 300, and so a custom tune will be necessary. At 400-450whp, same as 300-350whp, trust me you'll want the tune.

Realistically, no one goes into the dealership, buys a car, and then chunks down $7000 in mods to hit 400-450whp right off the bat. Maybe the shops themselves that sell the ktis, but no average Joe.

That's how I feel.

actually, i have the money right now.

but like briansol said, i think im gunna wait a little on major upgrades... sh!t, im even waiting on the right intake. Its sooo early in the game. CP-E just came out with an intake that adds an exta 16 HP for example. Before that, 10HP was high.

my goal is 350hp and i plan on keeping my warranty. so im gunna take my time.

when the time comes ill buy what i need.

^On a mustang Dyno at that. I agree in the intake.

So, in your case, you might get a custom tune to hit 350whp, and then if you decide later you want 450whp, then you would get another custom tune. Two custom tunes, not three. There is always the case where people will just hit the bigger numbers, but it's more rare.

Props to you, for being able to do that.

I'll also be making changes as prices come down... but, something to consider, if you go with a smaller intercooler/piping to start you then you have to get a larger intercooler/piping later when you want more power. The list is what I see as being more typical.

an efficiency rating of 500HP is more then enough for me. very few people are going to realistically go that high... i can always upgrade the piping later if i decide to. that would be cheap. initially ill just be using the stock piping anyways.


and for u to say that most people will have to save and wait... but then post the prices as they are now.. isnt really fair.

there is no question that parts/tunes will become alot cheaper with time.

And there's also people (like me) who are capable of tuning their own cars (I've done at least 10 turbo cars and 5+ n/a before on various software /makes/models). So, only the hardware will be an expense to me... I do 95% of my tuning on the street with a buddy driving like usual, and then buy an hour on the dyno to finish it and get some numbers. The poweraxel solution isn't for me. I think it's hugely overpriced for what it does, and the whole 3 slots thing is kinda wack. Plus, you don't even have the software to tune with in the first place--- just some internet receiver? no thanks. So, i'll wait until some betters them on both technology and price (or, maybe they better themselves)

I'm not going to bother modding until next year when there's a few options/proven results out there, as it seems a little silly to pay to be a pioneer. Besides, winter's just around the corner...

That being said, I got the 3.8 because in my experience it's best to start off with a larger displacement engine.

I'm more worried about how anal the dealerships are going to be with any kind of mods. What they told me is that it depends on what you upgrade. If you upgrade your suspension, and your diff. falls out, then they may not cover that. Basically anything the its directly interacting with they may not cover. And come on, lets be honest, they run a business, not a friendly repair shop. They'll take any opportunity they can to say that your intake is why your engine is having problems or some **** like that :P
