$500 for 4 rims
$480 for 245/45/R17 Tires
$100 for GT Exhaust
$90 to get the exhaust installed
$190 for CAI after shipping
$170 for UD pulley, belt after shipping
$10.99 180* Thermo
$15.00 White Face Guages
~2 grand, but not including misc parts, tools and fluids (gas, radiator, cleaners).
Best part, I've just begun!
Next up is new gears then cams and heads...down the road.. ATI Procharger.
Think you could hook me up with a nice little job? =)
Vortech V-2 S Trim kit $1500
Vortech 255lph fuel pump $110
FRPP 70mm t-body $180
FRPP u/d pulleys $140 - no longer used
Bullit suspension $360
forged shortblock w/ ceramic coated pistons $3150
Nitto 245/45/R17 555's
JBA headers $440
180* t-stat $5
i think that's it.
Hmm anyone else hit the 10000 dollar mark?
if i get a procharger then i might..... then again where would i get that extra $4000 at??..............
Im thinking about dropping the whole nitrous setup. Im tired of refilling my bottles. I dont like only being able to go fast when i spray. I race way too often and spraying is too expensive of a hobby. Shoot another 4 grand. Who cares.
My rims around 800
Tri-ax shifter 180
Mac cai 139
Front and rear bumpers 225 from MPS
around 2 grand.
That seems to be the going rate. I guess im just stupid and throw my money around too much. I coulda easily bought a gt with the extra money but i still dont want to pay the insurance. I probably could have done an engine swap or at least a supercharger but i chose to change the way it looks every 6 monthes since ive owned it. I think like i said before ima sell the nitrous set up and go for a procharger. Or, a turbo if the price is right.

does anyone save for college like i do?
Im not trying to get into a ****ing contest or anything but i have probably around 15000 that i have put into it at one time not including maintenance. Im only 19. Lol. Sad sad person i am. My car could be the fastest v6 mustang in texas, maybe even the US but i decided to put it all into stereo and visual mods. Well, a little went into performance.

I've got easily 15K into my car. Not to mention the car itself, and when I want to get on it I need to mix gas . . . expensive expensive! Oh well.
See, but ur car is fast. Money spent wisely
I also don't want to get into" oh yeah I put more into it" but including the car, it's abut 5-6 grand and I don't make alot of money in the span of the one year I put those mods on I made about 4600-5000 so everysingle cent I have pretty much went into the stang, and my parents helped me out, and hey visual mods aren't a bad thing you didn't buy the v6 for the incredible speed, but I bet it's quick, and least we know where our priorities are, hehe, and oh yeah i'm pretty sure that is the reason I don't have a girlfriend, next year is visual mods for me and full exhaust maybe that will make the ladies love me, ffppphhh, yeah thats it, hahahaha
oh and 1100 into mostly visual mods deserves a couple of pics so post it up
11000 u mean . I would but people around here get mad when i post pics. Especially mustangsally. If i post one pick she will **** for many posts to come. If you search the threads for my name, you can find plenty of pics of my car.
I think they should make a money spent list kinda like a time slip list where everyone posts there times. You provide a number of money that you havent spent on ur car and proof and theyll put u on the list. I just wanna be on a top10 of any kind of list other then like the lamest car list.
