we'll say about 1200 for flex fuel sensor, can display, I-boost
add on 3600 for the Saad fuel system with pumps and injectors

And then there is a clutch...so anywhere from 1k-3k

So for the basic setup without subframe reinforcement...upgraded mounts, Saad ignition system and alot more "recommended items"... You're over 20k just to start without an engine build.

This is by far the most expensive option...by far and I wouldn't even say it's at quality to even consider spending that much...

So the basic HPF tuner kit with intercooler setup is $6000...SAAD tuner kit is $13000 ...the only big differences is the oil sump and tubular exhaust manifold...which for a non-built motor is pointless.

Now for 10k...you can get a full DME tuned setup with MaxPSI which is by far one of the best setups money can buy.

And then you have the FSR setup which very well may blow the HPF/Saad options away as far as quality and performance goes...pricing yet to be released but with the level of work they've been putting into their kit...it should be damn near perfect.

Regardless looking forward to seeing another boosted M on the road, just wanted to clarify some pricing so people are more aware
Now, Saad racing stage 1 tuner system is $9,999 which is a more direct comparison. Soon to be coming with a DME tune as well. They have their shop car going together for testing as we speak and will have the final numbers SOON

The cool thing about Saad Racing is the they use the same components on the stage 1 tuner system as the stage 3 system

Stage 1 comes standard with:

3.5" stainless steel down pipe directly off the turbo with waste gate plumbed back in!

Tubular pyramid merge stainless steel manifold

4" x 7" long air filter element

Stainless steel motor mount bracket and billet aluminum engine mount

Stainless steel charge pipe from the turbo to the intercooler for durability

Gravity oil drain system

World record setting turbo system

The quality of all of their components are top notch. Garrett intercooler core, Tial bov and waste gate, Precision turbo, billet components used throughout.

No one else has these components as standard in their kits.

Recent dyno numbers put their kit at 940 hp to the tire on e85!!!

Also, the Saad Racing e85 add-on system is $750 (not $1,200) which includes the sensor, bracket, custom mandrel bent stainless steel fittings, adapter fittings for the sensor, wiring harness for the Pro EFI and Teflon braided lines. It is also adaptable to either stage1 or stage2 fuel systems
