Getting into your STi with all those mods and hitting WOT and having you neck snapped back: Priceless

There are some things money can't buy, for everything else there's Mastercard.

~$37,000 worth of sponsored stuff.

$19,000 of that got ripped off by a bunch of lowlifes. Now I'm spending $23K to "fix" it good

The sad thing is the drive train is whats left to work on and the stuff is big $$$. Might be awhile.

Hey I can handle the bolt on stuff now, when it gets to the block though, and I don't very much so I call the "engine man". Nice updated avatar here BTW haha. BTW my car is being towed to Cascade today. I said my prayers last night so I will let you know what happens.

About 10K or so. When everything you want costs around $1,000 it adds up quick. Check profile to see what all I have. Didn't spend a penny on installation though.

Ouch, wish I hadn't seen this thread. Had not figured it up until tonight, needed to go pull invoices. Easy to see where my tax refund has gone the last two years...

Cobb AccessPort & full turbo back $1650
17" Rota SubZero's + Toyo Proxes4 (Spy Engineering) $1030
Dash Bezel & AutoMeter Boost & EGT (egauges.com) $250
Intercooler hoses, airbox silencer delete elbow, Perrin filter (boxer4racing.com) $230
Gruppe-S header, Helix up-pipe, STi Injectors, Walbro pump (gruppe-s.com) $1200
VF34 with Monster Port & Polish (deadboltspeed.com) $900
MBQuart speakers, Phoenix Gold Amp & Phoenix Gold 12" sub (local shop) $700

Too damn close to $6 grand! BUT, I don't have any other vices, my ex-wife just got remarried & my daughter thinks it's cool to borrow Dad's car and get the ricer's drooling all over themselves!

Already purchased all the HP I'll need, next comes 4eat mods & TC, and I better get some heftier brakes to haul this thing down!
