Earlier this summer I started (and finished) my "stage 3" allroad project. Here is the play-by-play:
The way it arrived at my shop. 2002 allroad 2.7T 6-speed. 72k miles.

wow, wow, wow!
that's awesome! i love what you did there.... HOT allroad. the wheels, the color-matching. looks excellent. you basically built your own RS6 with air suspension.
did you do all the labor yourself? where did you purchase all your parts? were the turbos and other engine upgrades a "kit" from somewhere or did you piece everything together? and how much down-time did you have?
GREAT work though. i LOVE it.
I did everything myself, except painting the body bits.
The parts were sourced from various wholesale suppliers that I use for my business, as well as places like Achtuning (wheels), TireRack (tires, sways), AWE Tuning, VAST, ECS Tuning and EPL.
The project probably took 2 months of working on it in my spare time.
Wow, those are the first wheels not made for the allroad I've thought go really well. What a combo, I'm quite picky about the wheels and I gotta say thats awesome. I only dream of being able to afford the mods to do a project on my engine like that.

my thoughts exactly. possibly the hottest AR i've ever seen. makes me wanna play the lotto!
i mean i know the rs4 ko4 turbo kits is like close to 4 grand... plus another 1g for the intercoolers... then there is the labor which is the killer on a 2.7tt... gotta take out the enigne to do almost anything... then there is the exhaust which was prob 1500... soo...
Cost: too much! Even with free labor (I work on it myself), I spent more than the car was worth at the start.
You could probably make one that's almost as fast for 6-8k in parts. That won't include clutch, brakes, wheels, suspension, body stuff, but it will haul ass.
8k on the engine...
wheels were what? They are reps so prob not more than 1400... and thats alot... the real set of the gallardo wheels i heard were 5k...
What did u do to suspension?
clutches really arent that much.. maybs a grand... with flywheel...?? i could be wrong i dont really know...
and what body stuff? removing orange turns and painting the plastic?
how much u buy the car for?
