The last I heard, serviceable bug engines were pretty cheap ($300-$400). If
the kit costs $300, having a 58 CFM @ 100 PSI compressor for under a $1000
might be a good way to go.

But I'm not sure that it's all that good a deal unless you
have a VW engine sitting around and lots of free time.
Of course if the reason is that its fun to do, then that outweighs minor
considerations like cost-effectiveness. :-)
