yeah so 7-10k for a proper swap and a single kit.....not to mention he specifically said without a turbo

sell it and buy the v8 if u wanted to just make 280 as the v8s make that factory. would be more cost efficient that trying to make a NA gs300

I know he said without a turbo but that maybe the better route after assuming how much hes going to spend making a N/A 280whp. I was trying to give a more rational answer than selling his car and buying a entirely different one. In that case i'd just tell him to sale it and get a AMG C32 for $8-12k, which has 350hp and runs low 12s with bolt ons, but that really wouldn't help his situation.
