I don't know if I want to do this.

$6000 for car
$1250 tires and wheels
$300 more in tires (slicks, and drag radials)
$700 intercooler
$500 for cam and all install parts
$1000 making the trans hard
$500 for tuning software
$800 in exhaust
$200 in brakes
$1000 in hood
$1000 in other misc stuff
$800 in gauges
$5000 in tools, and what not.

OK, so that'* about $20,000. Ouch, I knew I didn't want to do that. And I'm sure I missed a lot, like a whole shop full of spare parts.

You've probably hear of people that have boats and they call them a hole in the water that they keep dumping money into? I think I have the land version of that.....
