    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.

    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.

    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.

    Btw i dont have to save for college, i got pretty much a full scholarship! Yeah for me.

    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.
