Default RE: homebuilt turbine

+ tailcone + shaft tunnel + bearings and probably other things that I can't remember off hand.

That's another $125 so you're now looking at $1345 and that's probably not everything.

The reason I say it might end in disaster is that, unless you know exactly what you need and what you're buying, you might spend a load of money and still not be able to build an engine that runs.

You may come across issues when assembling parts like this that you hadn't thought about (e.g. how are you going to balance it?). If you buy a Wren kit or a built engine then you are much more likely to be successful.

Spending a bit more money now might seem a waste of money but I think it would be worth it.
