he sent me 500 american to make the mani runners, turbo compressor outlet adaptor, downpipe, new 1.8 gasket and all gaskets for his stuff and most hardware also. shipped a driveshaft up there. shipping was 80 so i made about 420 then subtract the material cost which was about 220 and then materials to make this stuff with i think it was about 35 per manifold/ downpipe and that leaves me 165 of crazy spending money!!!

I appretiate the offer Ari, I know your not trying to rip anyone off or anything and like you said I suppose it was just bad circumstances. I sent Ari 700ca and yes he did make a compressor outlet adapter and sent gaskets and bolts and did me a favour by sending my driveshaft up aswell. I had to pay UPS $50 when it got here so all in all it was 750ca, not a huge amount of money but remember I still had to get a head flange cut and welded on, which is a few more hundred bucks.
