allegedly they blow up a lot. if you spend money on the engine and have proper low comp pistons, would probably run ok

then add 1500 for management and another 500 for other bits,

throttle bodies are the way forward

throttle bodies - image four cans lined up along a wall, each one resembling a cylinder. Normally an engine has one throttle body that sucks in air for all 4 cylinders - That would be like getting one shotgun and shooting all cans. When you have thottle bodies, each cylinder has a throttle body feeding more air to each cylinder - so it would be like having 4 shotguns, one to shoot each can
