Hello all,
I've been considering boosting my IS at some point in the near (hopefully) future, and wondered what the best "Bang for the Buck" is.
So for shiznits and giggles, I created a F/I comparison between kits. I used the info that Redline had already provided (hope this is cool with him).
This comparison says nothing about the individual Tuners, and does not take into account many important things in choosing a kit (like quality, reliability, service....). Simply the peak RWHP/$$ (kit + install), which gives $ per hp. Some kits were rated in FlyHP, so I deducted 15% for drivetrain loss (not perfect, but same for everyone)

Co. Kit Cost / RWHP = Bang for Buck ($ per Hp)


PFS.........Stg I $6745 / 289 = $23.34
Stg II $10,495 391 = $26.84
Stg III $12,995 595 = $21.84

PHR.........Stg II $11,500 450 = $25.50

PLP..........Vor S/C $6,300 280 = $22.50
Pow S/C $4,300 259 = $18.92

SRT.........Stg I $5,445 290 = $18.77
Stg II $6,745 340 = $19.84
Stg III $8,745 450 = $19.43

TBKO.......Stg I $5,995 320 = $18.73
Stg II $6,494 400 = $16.23
ATI S/C $5,900 275 = $21.45

Toyomoto..Stg I.5 $10,500 340 = $30.88
Stg II $12,500 450 = $27.77


Well, there you have it. This gives some indicaiton of the Bang for Buck. Hope you enjoy, and if I have made a mistake......let me know and I will gladly fix it.

And YES, I am extremely SLOW :roll: :roll: :roll: at work today.

Dyno tuning is also included in the price for PFS, PHR & Toyomoto also if installed at their facilities. Acutally PHR & Toyomoto are in house installs only no shippable kits.

side note.. the toyomoto stageg 2 kit that onyx got made over 510 rwhp so that changes things alil. in that equation.
yeah, lot's of exceptions;

$10,495/445hp=23.58$/hp*, 'bout same money per power as pfs stage I.

didn't darkstorm put >500 with pfs stage 2?

props to your productive boredom :); good to have ratios showing advertised power and price!



since hp = Joules / sec = kg*m^2/sec^3

so $/hp=($*sec^3) / (kg*m^2)

i think he's trying to put street numbers on there. alil more real world.

i'll agree that you'll have to add install and such to make it more accurate, but I like the effort. :D

Actually the price of each kits install is included in the calculations. Also, I realize that there are several owners of kits, especially PFS and Toyomoto that have put much higher rwhp numbers than the tuners quote. So like I said earlier, just a rough estimate. 8)

I feel your pain. I would reccomend finding a Sugar-Mama. This has worked wonders for a couple of my friends. :lol:

Being a married man myself, I will have to find another "creative" way to earn the much needed benjamins.
