EFI is expensive for many reasons. All the above comments are very valid!

I can touch on just a few of the expenses. A lot of expense has to do with the fact that when you decide to run EFI you are not going to do it and keep your K-27 or OE turbo etc.... You very easily get into a "While Im here" situation.

The ouches and expense in my case was.

Heres the ouch list.....

1. ECM
2. Wiring Harness
3. Misc. Wiring, connectors, relays, busses etc...
4. Turbo upgrade
5. Wastegate
6. Blow off valve
7. Misc. Fabrication, intake piping, stainless clamps, silicone hose...
8. Intake manifold (In my case, custom)
9. Fuel rails
10. Fuel pump
11. Fuel pressure regulator
12. AN fittings
13. Stainless braided hose
14. Wideband system (A MUST)
15. Ignition unit
16. Coil packs
17. Ignition wires
18. Throttle body
19. Throttle position sensor
20. Idle air control motor
21. Crank position sensor
22. Crank pulley
22. Crank sensor bracket
23. Distributor hole block off plug
24. Injector blocks
25. Fuel injectors
26. Installation (Unless youre doing it...)
27. Dyno time

Im sure I am missing some things somewhere along the line, but that should give people who have not been through this job some sort of idea.

I agree with Don to a point about possibly getting a different P car with the money, BUT.........I couldnt buy anything that would compare to my baby with EFI!!!!
