Oh yea...a little over $4k in turbos alone!
1st - 1,200 whp comes at a STEEP prices for a block/head/internals that can handle that power level, forget the expense of the turbos as they are on the cheaper side of the build expense when talking 1,200.this is very true, but those G line turbos from garrett are soooo badass. Plus, how much would it be for a big huge single turbo that could flow up to 1200WHP? if you use a GTX5533R gen 2 for comparison from garrett, it goes for 3700$ on its own, and it surely will lag a lot more than this twin set up would.
I think ultimately there just isnt a big market for a kit that is 1200whp capable due to cost, but as an individual if your looking for 1200whp, its pretty safe to assume your gonna be paying A LOT more than an 800whp set up, any route you go. 4K in turbos actually isnt bad for what it is (1200whp capable).
as they say, gotta pay to play
This post made me add up my costs for my build - suddenly I hate youWell, lets assume this kit alone would cost ~7k. 8-9k for totally built and installed engine, 3k for adequate clutch/flywheel, 2k for port injection, 1k for reinforced axles, 1k for prop shaft, 2k for differential. Then start adding up all the costs associated with heat mitigation and insulation. Probably throw in another 1-2k for suspension/bushing work since it'll take a bit to avoid killing yourself at 900whp, nevermind 1200.
That would totally melt one of my credit cards.
