Can't afford to right now. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to mod the living hell out of my car, but the problem is, I am apprehensive about putting money into it, because I keep having to have something repaired or replaced, at least once a month I'm at the dealer. Its not fair on me, but I'll live with it...

Purchase/Maintenance - $1330

150 with trade for an aluminum flywheel

Me and a buddy here in town that used to own a performance shop put it all together this weekend...
<He built his wife's custom turbo'd NX2000 from scratch>

We had fun, but DAMN my hands feel like sh*t from all the power cleaning of the sludgy parts! :(
