[s-cars] RS2 Bits and Pieces - $250 Sound Reasonable?

Thanks Sean for the input.  Yes I priced everything on the spreadsheet you
compiled.  I think I will go ahead and get these items from Ken at West
Hartford.  BTW, he seems like a great guy and definitely easy to work with.

Now, speaking of spreadsheets, what is it with you I say with a salute.
RS2, Suspension, what's next?  I'm almost afraid to price the suspension
bits and pieces and hunks and chunks you amassed.  How did things settle in?
IIRC you posted about some creaking recently?

Best regards,

The only euro-only parts I can think of is the shortened studs for the
manifold. Everthing else should be available stateside.

With the studs, you can buy the OEM longer ones and cut them down, which
save you sourcing these from europe.

BTW, I found even with the proper RS2 studs, I had to shorten 2 or 3 of the 
bottom ones even more to get it to fit.

Mark - If you priced everything on my spreadsheet, then $250 is reasonable.
its just a simple gasket set with locknuts then $250 is too much.
