oh I did so much it is all run together. I did the whole driveline too. 6mt and entire rear subframe. Whole interior to.

I believe a motor is about 5K. Whole driveline, engine, 6mt, rear end, brakes iinstalled is about 13K. USDM parts total out to about 4K if you sell them.

KingPin did all the work on the driveline. I'd say a few days for install including tuning once all the parts were there. Getting the parts takes month though. The first turbo was 3 months of tuning but the second was 1 day.
It took me 3 months before the engine made any power. There is a post out here on that. Just look for my name to read about it.

Now that the Ver 8 tuning mytsery has been cracked, it should be no differrent than a Ver 7 swap. My second turbo took longer to install than to tune. I would venture to guess that KingPin will have mail order ECU's for Ver 8 if people want it. I spent.... oh I don't know, thousands of dollars on the dyno and KingPin spend thoudands of dollars of thier time with me trying to figure this out. over 200 dyno pulls and probably 25 hours. In the end, just run Lamborghini Galardo plugs and uncork 100whp. It was that simple. Almost.

Been working on the car for year. I had to undo all the USDM stage 4 stuff. Undo is too soft a word. Threw it all out and started over is a more appropriate descriptioon.
