If you find a used setup with a rebuilt turbocharger /blower, you can have it for about 3K. Hard to find a 328 kit with tuning, so add 1K for tuning and 1K for install. about 5K for a decent setup.

Umm, clean 328's go for 7-9K in toronto, you can DEFINATELY get a clean M3 for 12-14K.

Agreed.

If you have a 328, keep it.

Do suspension, brakes, exhaust, appearance, etc.

Wait for the motor to go.

then put a s52 turbo in and make 400hp, and then your car is finished.
