    $1900 in just payments.

    I'll probably stick to stiffening up my shifter, cams, intake and maybe an exhaust system later on down the road...

    what do you suppose that is? Around another 2.5-3k?

    I had around 4000 in the civic, not including the car...It was only $850.

    I have less than 2k including the car for the Porsche, so far.

    I had like 1.5k in the saturn w/o the car and it was still slow as hell, but it was my riced out daily.

    Yup...

    ~3100 Swap
    450 Exaust and Intake
    600 Suspension
    500 Tyres (Probably going to need a new set soon too... :(
    340 Cams

    And some other misalaneous items too, so in other words way too much at 5000.

    Cars are like a lot of woman out there, they just keep asking for money and only give pleasure in return... :D

    between 16-22 K as of current w/ roughly 4-9 K left until completed the way I want. Oh yeah, I got 1 on "B", I only paid $600.00 for my REX so my ratio is WAY off.

    $13.

    $6 water sprayer for the IC and $7 for the MBC.

    I was paid $1600 cash, four new tires, and a new engine, to take this car off the last owners hands.

    Car not included....probably around $1700, including the 30k service I just performed. That $1400 I spent on the Vishnu upgrade got me about 60-65 horsepower. Time to work on suspension and brakes.

    So far, $1000 for the car, $350 to have it shipped to me.

    I 'plan' to spend (which is never enough :) ) about $7000 total, and I've got $2000 saved at the moment. Once I hit about $3500 I'll buy the engine, and it will sit on a pallet while I stare at it until I save up enough for the mounts, linkage and axles. :)
