I just dropped $4,000 over the summer on a bunch of stuff. If I add the wheels, tires, Intake, exhuast and a couple other things, about $6,000.

Shit! My car still looks like stock and i have spend like $3,500.

I spend this Christmas like $2,000 just in the audio and video system but it is worth it, i love it.

I am already thinking of spending like $1,000, sure modding is an addiction.

Mine's all in the stereo so far. Since the only thing that has survived since I had my truck is the sub itself and the 1F capacitor, then I've got $3000 into mine. I installed it all myself, so I saved about $1000 worth spineyes of labor and install costs.
Oh yeah, and $100 in the center console with paint and Ichibahn stuff.
And best yet, the $20 to remove the stock lightning rod for an S2k antenna.

at least 7 G's, some of that spent on stuff not on the car anymore or stuff that I changed my mind on...ahhh experimentation is expensive.

perhaps I should have gotten a turbo to start with...oh well.

well one could say the auto performance industry is doing well haha.


I get my kicks on EC.
