Well, my 230bhp (400bhp/ton) complete build cost me a fair bit less than that
Might be a good deal, maybe I'm out of touch? Or too Yorkshire

Late model ZX14R full running pack with low mileage cost 5k as a complete kit
Billet sump kit 650 plus vat
Prop adaptor 65 plus vat
Heavy duty clutch springs and gasket 40
Westfield dash and gauges - 250
Westfield V8 bonnet 250
Engine mounts 150
Sierra 3.14 duff rebuilt with quaife ATB - gonna set you back 1000 all day long
Complete exhaust system with silencer 500 conservative estimate
Accusump with mounts and all hosing 400
Oil cooler with all hosing and billet sandwich plate 300
Pipercross air filter kit 120
Catch tank and plumbing 60
Innovate AFR guage, sender and lambda 120
And an awful lot of other bits including original clicks - all wired and ready to run

Id say it was a lot of kit for the money and a true representation of what a proper install of one of these engines is going to cost.
With bike power there are no halfway houses / do it right or live with unreliable installs and costly blow ups

I'm sure you're right Andy But it doesn't stop us Yorkshire folk been shocked at the price of these modern fangled engines. I'll be off for a sit down with a cup of tea while I recover

😀 yeah they add up when you drill down into the nitty gritty Nick
Thing is I get really p!ssed off at all these build this car for 7995 adds
Invariably they suck people in and then they realise just how much more has to be spent or they try and hit the budget by ignoring dry sumps etc and it ends in expensive disaster
Id rather not sell a car than hoodwink people like that
When we sell an Arion, Sabre or Typhon kit we have a simple policy - we quote the total price down to the last rivet - if you stick to spec and spend more we pay the difference
That way the customer had control over the project from the get go
