You'd have to find a heck of a deal to get a full STI swap for 3k. Not saying it couldn't be done, but might take a while to find that. Particularly if you want everything.

320whp is certainly a much more realistic goal, but it can still get spendy super quick. My 02 blew the stock engine at 280whp.

And I guess it depends on your definition of "cheap", but I was thinking used 90s mustang with a blower and supporting mods. That should be high hp for about the cheapest one could do. C5 corvettes would be an option too.

And thunderousproduction, are you claiming 300+ whp out of a td04?
