I joined this forum swearing up and down I was gonna leave it stock. Boy did I lie to you guys and myself. ;)

That was around $18k in mods ago in the year I've owned it. And guess what? I'm not done yet. LOL! It really is addictive, especially if you start drag racing it.

Wish I could help you man, but all I'm likely to do is egg you on to make it faster. I mean that's really why your inner self bought it, right? :rolleyes:

wink

This is what you have to do. Set a goal and stick with it. 1 thing is you have to be happy with the out come. In my case both me and the wife are retired so i have to watch where the money goes but i went out to only spend 600 bux and thats all i did and im happy so far lol. I have met my goals and then some. 1 other thing for me is i have a 7/100,000 exstended warranty that i dont want to lose with a lot of mods. Remember HP COST MONEY LOL.

lol...... all you guys have your own stories..

Well.. I am married and being very careful so she won't notice much difference..

My wife is pretty numb if it comes to car which is good

she didn't even noticed difference when I upgraded my Turbo on b5 s4... basically it went to 300 to 450hp.. but she said it is fast.. and it was fast....

: )

Welcome to my world! I got a Vette two years ago and never planned to mod it and I still haven't stopped and now that I picked up this truck, the list keeps going on and on for what to do! It's a bad habit and addiction
