Wink How much have you spent on your V6?

I keep a microsoft word doc of everything I spend on my car, minus maintnance, or repairs. So basically any performance mod, or visual/cosmetic mod I do, I keep track of it. This is the first time I've actually added it up and over the two years I've had my car I've spent roughly $7,319...
and there's a chance I might have missed a mod or two, God Help me..

Here's the list of mods I have so far.


Appearance
Hood Spears
Fender Hashes
Fog Lamp Black Out
Tail Light Black Out
Side and Reverse Smoked Out
Plasti Dip Tail Lights
TSW Nurburgring Wheels

Intake
AirAid (sold)
Injen CAI
RX Catch Can
VMax Ported Throttle Body

Exhaust system:
MRT Version 1.0
SS Mid Pipes
ARH Headers and Cats

Clear Bra
Venture Shield Ultra

Tune
Trifecta Tune + Cable
E85 Tune

Suspension
Lowering Springs
Sway Bars
End Links

Brakes
SS front brake calipers, discs and lines

Gauges
Innovate Wideband o2
Pillar Pod
Ultra Gauge



So what about you guys??? I suspect there are a few of you that have spent more, I hope..

LS steel wheels for winter - $300
RX Catch Can - $154
Injen Long Tube intake - $225
Splash Guards - $54

I still have to buy winter tires, though I don't really consider them part of this list because I look at it as buying tires in advance since they will extend the life of the all seasons on the car right now.

So total is $833.

I bought them used from a local buddy that switched from a v6 to SS. it's an inch drop, but I think it settled around an inch and a quarter to one and a half inch drop. Which is perfect, IMO.
