do a little more research. it is a single mpt70 on that build. stock truck motor and megasquirt $200 ecu. he has the msd ignition box but that isnt need with the new version of megasquirt. so if you are including the turbo it is a $600 turbo, $200 ecu, and a $500 motor.

roushturbo you know me and i dont stuff that isnt right. my build will be done right. and i am very confident that there will be no way the zetec will touch it for the same money when finished.

yeah i know the ls2 will make much more power than this but that is just like you said more money. i can get a zo6 cam for $75 and give it 100 more hp. not bad for that plus the cost of new valve springs $180.
