to keep up with yours hes gonna need injectors, turbo, intake, exhaust, custom tuned chip, and a trans to keep all that in check....

he will for sure need a built trans.... so he can already start saving for since a good one will be in the 4k+ range....

depending on what turbo setup, injectors he goes with will determine if hes gonna need a fuel system... but total hes prob looking at close to 10k in parts with the trans......

it adds up quick

It would be cheaper to buy a 6.0 and tune it and beat you.
