I've pretty much secured my VF10, so you may go back to raping the B6Ts of their VF10 goodness...

You think you can get a GT28 for $200-300??? The only thing you need to mod for a VF10 hybrid is the wastegate actuator's locating plate, wastegate flap/porting and the snout for the compressor intake. The GT28 will need $$$ worth of custom exhaust manifold and dump to warrent it's potential. Oh yeah, it will be much better than a VF10 hybrid after that though... But I can't see it being done for under $400 like a VF10.

Anything is possible as you will need a custom exhaust manifold anyway...
