your probably lookin at around $25k to get a VR SS from standard to 10s and be a little reliable at least.

its gonna cost him a whole heap more if he has no knowledge also.

movies and tv shows make people think that getting a car to run a 10 second pass is a walk in the park.

lol, sad but true...
and also true, the more you know the less it costs... and the more u can do yourself the less it costs again.
Basically if you're a cheque book racer you will be robbed.

If he's in the know, then surely he would know how much it would cost to build a 10 second car?
