12k quote...whattttt?

Straight up, I'm new to BRZ but not new to this game. Had some pretty sweet rides in my time. With that said, so far I've added the quicksilver sport 3 inch exhaust. My 2013 brz is my daily driver, but it's a really needing some HP power but Im not looking to turn it into a drag race car.

I keep reading the articles on the pre made turbo kit with the ecu programmed so I took a some advise from a user on there and called a local shop to check on some prices.

12k I was quoted for a custom- tuned turbo kit. That's crazy! I just want a kit that will fit my current setup and if I blow a clutch later down the road , I'll slap in a nice one.

I know not everyone on here, is dropping 12k---right?

plenty of sponsors here that sell kits for much cheaper then 12k.

Search around to see what style of kit you like.

Let's take into perspective a few things just from a quick search:
MAP's full done kit with 1100cc injectors is $6700
Clutch $1100
Intercooler $1000 (maybe a little high)
Tuning license and dyno time $1200
Exhaust $1000 (catted)

That's $11,000...

Then labor

I guess in my other cars, the z06,tt's, 6k would do some HP damage. I just dropped 1800 on exhaust which was like z06 prices with civic gains lol

You can but this is how it happens.

You spend the money to put the thing on. Then your clutch goes.

So you spend more money taking it back out to put the clutch in.

Then you might have fueling issues so now you need to dyno tune instead of going on the basemap. Only to find out you need more fuel in the top end and hence injectors.

You run so hard that your shit heat soaks and now you have to fork over for a catch can setup and intercooler and piping. Therefore paying the labor all over again.

All the while repaying for labor because you didn't do it the first time.

You can drop them in a stock car if you have little power goals. Think like just a bump in power from an overpriced greddy kit. It doesn't make as much as these others because the components are not capable.

You could just get a innovate stg 2 with the cooler and ecutek tune and call it a day.

Those numbers above are bs. Search around and don't listen to these people.

You notice none of them are boosted?

Ask other fI people what their experiences and costs were for their builds

I'm not boosted, but what was said above is total horse shit. You don't NEED a clutch upgrade if you are playing conservative (~250whp). Intercoolers come with every kit...as an included item. The stock injectors are fine for "conservative" setups. Nearly all of the kits are drop ins (no fabrication required), whether "conservative" or not. It's your decision on if you want to install in your garage or at a shop. Just make sure to get proper tuning.

There is a reason why these are kits for our cars. There is no custom work done anywhere.

I've seen the Kraftwerks kits for $3500 without tune. Yes you might still need/want gauges and other little bits, but $12k for an entry level "conservative" kit....sure
