First Rod Build Price

This is my first post about my project !

The pic is the body kit that i want with a small change !

i'm going to build a car starting with it but i dont have all the money now !

I want to buy a carbon body kit like the one in the pic !

No hood , and a soft top .. the one in the pic is 6000 $ i think but i want the chasis to be able to hold a 502 up to 1000 HP ! have the right size and to be able to hold it !

how much does an basic chasis that can hold a 502 and that body style cost ?

At first y have 10000 $ to buy chasis and body

And in 2 months y will get the 13000 $ for the engine ( the best price y found for a dual turbo 1000 HP on gas engine special offer )

y read the folowing :

In the Feb. 2005 issue of Popular Hot Rodding Magazine there is an article titled "Budget Big-Block, Part 1 (get 500 Hp for $2,000 total)!

for only 2000 $ ... my question :

1. Is the 13000 price for the 1000 hp pump gas engine that y found good ? or can y go lower ?

The engine is made by someone with a shop for 15 years ( what he sais on the site )
2. If the body and the chasis cost 10000 $ + the engine 13000 $ thats 23000 $ ..

For the rest what some of money do y need to finish the car ?

with 7000 $ can y get the rest ?

3. Last question : y'm overrating the prices ? ore will it realy cost 30000+ ... ?

There's no picture so we don't have a clue to what you're building. Some more details will help. Prices are high but you're a log ways away from me... Dan

I see the photo ...
It is a 32 Ford roadster replica.

It is very easy to spend that amount building a rod.



Look at my 1932 3W coupe project journal

http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jour...ge=1&reverse=1

I doubt very seriously if the chassis would hold 1000 horsepower ... BUT guess what ... anything over 500 to 600 horsepower is a total waste in a 32 Ford. I have trouble using the 430 Horsepower in my roadster. This is my roadster ...

Interesting journal !

As soon as the body kit comes i'll uploade some pics in my journal !

By the way i'me stiil thinking what to get .. the 32 replica or a t bucket .. like rick sullivans .. ( see pic )

The problem with rick sullivans is the engine ... too small size .. hp dont realy care anymore after reading posts ... 1000 HP dumped ! 500 Max !

The rick pic is edited by me ( the radiator at a degree ) and the 32 replica will also have a the radiator at a degree ...

Thinking what to buy for now !

Lighter cars go quicker and faster than heavy cars.

The 23 style car would be less expensive, weigh less and most likely be quicker.

Just my nickel.

lets bet back to the subject

Popular Hot Rodding Magazine - Budget Big-Block Article


In the Feb. 2005 issue of Popular Hot Rodding Magazine there is an article titled "Budget Big-Block, Part 1 (get 500 Hp for $2,000 total)! This article is by David Vizard, the director of Applied Performance Sciences at the University of NC at Charlotte. He initiated a low-budget motor program for the UNCC Motorsports students drag race team. In their 1982 Camaro they utilized a set of Keith Black Hypereutectic Pistons, and below are some pictures of the student-built, 89-octane burning, $1,900 475-inch big-block..

Something like this engine in a store at 5-6000 $ no ? i meen a 502 500 HP
