I have expensive tastes...thats why. Most of this stuff is labor free. Working with an engine shop really rocks. The first part of the list is at employee cost, which is why most of the prices are so low. The rest of it, i have to get else where. If you know where to get new parts cheaper, id definitely like to hear about it.

This is only engine modification, nothing else. I know im gonna get a couple Gs back from Tim, but the rest will have to come from my day job and from friday/saturday nights. Its around $325 a month for the prelude race car of my dreams. God help me. The insurance is only 220...i thought it was gonna be a lot higher for full custom coverage.
