hey vulken...i was way overboard with my car...but a normal e zen conversion should be around 80k.
esteem engine 20k
gearbox and clutch mods 8k
suspension mods 6k
new braking system 12k
head porting and valves and springs 12k
headers and exhaust 8k
the remaining would be misc. expenses for oil, gaskets, seals, labour etc...
i had a lot of extras like cam, head,springs and valves,carbs,manifold etc...my damage was close to 1.25

Hi Heavy Foot

Yes, like it is rightly mentioned here, you need the Esteem MPFi's brakes (entire assembly), stiffer springs etc. The engine should be in the region of 20-27k, if you get lucky though, try getting a MPFi engine in there.

Just one note of caution. Get the final gear ratio to that of the Zen 1.0. It offers better driveability and higher top speed, coupled with a better average than the existing Esteem's final cog ratio which is rather tall and robs the car of a higher top end.
