Sounds like a great plan for a DD.

Sounds like you are wanting two completely different things.

500-800HP Track Car != Daily Driver, no matter what you do.

What kind of racing are you planning to do? Have you raced before? Looking at your build sheet, you have little to no suspension upgrades, but a ton of performance upgrades like you plan to just drag race.

As much as you probably don't want to hear it, I would suggest starting out small. Buy the car, take it to the track stock and learn how to drive it, then slowly mod it. No need to go balls to the wall with a fully built turbo right out of the gate.

Don't bother with a built engine or heads, cams. Get the turbo kit, run at 10-12psi and it's going to be great.

I like my car but your budget is a 20k car w 27k added to it. Not including labor, maybe it’s your own.

You checked out a Supra?

"500 hp is a good start I don't want anywhere above 800hp" was all I needed to read.

Ask your parents for a Ferrari for your 17th birthday.

looks like you have a realistic approach. I would budget an additional 20% for the unknown. You can make it reliable but it will take time. Donít expect to put it together and it be reliable you will have to work out some bugs. One of the issues is you are getting above the transmission capabilities for reliability.

Get the car first, focus on a build second imo. I do want to point out that you're missing supporting mods for such a high powered venture; oil cooling, clutch, potentially transmission, to name a few.

that's a lot of money just to run to the gas station for smokes every once in a while.
