It's also pretty clear none of u guys posting in this thread are serious buyers, other wise u would just pm him an offer... So ya he is being kinda dumb for not putting a price up but y'all are also being dumb.

And he the pictures are at 606transplant.shutterfly.com as stated in the first post

you brought this on yourself by richarding around for 11 months and not just posting a realistic asking price from the start.

I was busy with working 16 hour days, I really wanted to sell it, but just did not know what it was worth! It is a great car , with the 606 , even better! I just figured since I didnt have time for it ,someone else would enjoy it! Ok, if it sells it sells.if not my kids will drive a amazing and safe car.

A lot of us are in the hard-work category. We can still find time to post an asking price and/or pictures in the span of several months. When you don't know what something is worth, you ask a price a bit higher than what you're comfortable taking, then accept the best offer. Let the market dictate what it's worth (And I think they're telling you loud and clear...)

That statement speaks volumes about your intent. Most of us figured out months ago that you weren't really interested in selling.

Disclaimer: I'm not interested in the car - I'm trying to sell vehicles, not buy more, lol. If an intercooler was part of the conversion, all you need is a Dieselmeken pump to make this thing fly.

Oh gosh it takes so much more than that! Oil supply and drain lines for the new upsized turbo, new exhaust and intake manifolds with plumbing, egt sensor and data logger, iat, turbo shaft rpm plus jaquet sensors and installation in the compressor housing, manifold pressure and temp, egp sensor. Bigger exhaust. Bigger intercooler. Bigger fuel pump with pressure regulator. Bump up the shift pressure with a controller if it is a 722.6, or a whole new tranny if 722.3 or 4. The manifold is maybe a grand to 1500, the turbo 500-1000, the pump is 2k, gaskets, lines with fittings, stronger exhaust valve springs with retainers are $500-700 new harmonic balancer the same. Some hundreds for sensors. Turbo 700-2000. Plus labor. Then you have a smoky burn out machine. If you want it driveable you need a vnt or compound setup, either of which requires controllers and/or some design work. And tuning. Wavetrac is 1200. Half shafts 500. Custom driveshaft...better brakes...

If you want to cheap out you can use stock setup with increased fuel, but you need egt for sure and a better intercooler or you are going to melt your nice swapped motor. And it will smoke. Or your power increase will be modest.

Smart money might go edc with meken elements and an hx35. But honestly it is om648 money to get it all going right. And that motor is a lot more controllable and tunable.

No one who has actually done a 606 swap is likely to sell it for less than 5-6k if the car is otherwise presentable. The motor alone is 2k. If it is a fully sorted, clean, reliable high power car with new suspension and driveline rubber and shocks with an LSD that eats 500e's for breakfast and doesnt have a hood stack or any other manky crap, you are into the teens or Low 20s.

No free lunch.

Uh, let me clarify. I meant that with larger elements in the pump, the engine should support roughly 200-225hp with the stock turbo and stock intercooler. This is a significant improvement over the ~135hp, 3.5L engine the car left Germany with back in 1993.

Yes, the engine is capable of making 400-600hp with the modifications described in the previous post, and I agree it costs a fortune to do that. That's the nice thing about adjustable delivery pumps, you can dial it in to what you need - or have the IP builder set it up for a particular power level, assuming adequate airflow & cooling is available.
