They saved me money, considering I would of ended up doing the same mods at twice to cost, I'm sure I would of bought something that looked good on the net but not on the car, then the replacement part to make it look right again..

I started a spreadsheet a few weeks ago and probably shouldn't have after seeing the total amount Funny thing is I get reimbursed mileage for work so I have figured out how much I have to drive to pay for all the mods, again . I use the beater car to rack up the heavy miles to help pay for the mods on the Camaro.. yet again... .

There are several that are well over $100K, in performance mods alone. I had the headers before I had the car. I am not in the $100K club, yet.................
