OK I was planning to buy a bug eye, at around 9k but decided to get a shell and build an engine.
I ended up finding an 02 bug eye wagon, in blue, "dam near my dream car"
YouTube - CIMG0041.mp4
4k, complete shell with running/ knocking engine, "owner lost tune, overboosted, "end of story. 133,000 miles roughly, In pretty good shape. . ., turbo looks new too XD all < NON ebay stage 2 parts I believe and 2k in tires and wheels , as well as 3 grand in suspension. “all nice stuff” not a bad deal
Trying to build this car "in my garage with exception of possible tuning for 5k or less.
I want a car i can tune to a possible 300 HP, and still be tunable to 30 mpg on the street or as close as possible ,
My question is . . . Is this dream possible ?
Been doing a lil research and found an forged piston 2.5 from import image racing for around 2800
I know i would need 400 in head work , and roughly 400 for injectors, also fuel pump, "basic gasket kit. " not to sure what head gasket to run at that point. Dont really expect to find any suprises. .
What i need to check, is . experiance anyone here has had with this hybrid, or even people who live near me who can , somewhat educate me in everthing that is subaru, and deals around my area.. Also , is the company id like to buy the engine from , Reliable ?
Also, Id like to know if it is still possible, after running this set up . To still get my target Gas mileage.
Oh yea, Heres some pics and mabe some specs if i get bored . . .
