It's all relative, I think. Meaning to say that what a person may or may not consider expensive is subjective.
But to be honest, I was looking at those numbers in that link and they're not that bad in comparison to what I can spend on my GTI. For example:
-Header: one that actually works for my car (unequal length) non-coated
would cost more than the $300 he spent. It's more like $1500+.
-JE pistons: pretty much what I'd expect to pay for my car.
-Cams: Schrick cams would run me about $400 more than he spent.
-Flywheel: $200 more
-rear bumper: $400-$500 more.
So really, aside from buying the car, it's probably cheaper to build the 944. Because just going down his list of prices, equivalent parts for my car are either in the same range or several hundred dollars more. The expensive part for me would be buying the car. Not to mention, where to store it because I'm not getting rid of my GTI.
