only thing im doing is some new tires, drop, the rest is on GO FAST GOODIES! I want some new wheels but i cant see myself spending 3400 on some Volks and another 1000 for tires! LOL i rather spend that on Mods! I like the stock wheels just gotta get a Drop and im Gravy.

A very good engine builder once told me, "If you break her in soft, she'll only like it soft; if you break her in hard, she'll scream every time you go for a ride." So that's how I see it.

Turbo cars are like hot women. A little edgy, every guy wants one, some guys can't handle them, and if you throw a little alcohol in them they'll rock your world

i put 5-7, probably closer to the 5. that'll be spread out over several years. and up to ~1500 or so would be mostly aesthetic/non-performance mods, like tint, front/rear bumpers.

i think ill be spending about 2 or 3k in the first year until i master the RWD platform (nothing but FWD before this). then after that im not sure cause no body knows how cheap or plentiful these parts are going to be.

first order of business is to ditch hyundai in favor of genesis badges. then brakes, then shocks/springs, then exhuast, then fmic, then a jato rocket trunk lid retrofit.

I've decided to save up $7 grand B4 purchase, $2 grand of which will be for lease down payment. The other $5,000 will be spent on bushings, mounts, caliper bolts, coil overs, SS brake & clutch lines, brake pads, clutch, shifter, shifter knob, replacement of all fluids with my choice & hopefully Forgestar F14s & tires.

That way the brakes, clutch, & suspension will be done. Then I can focus on CF & go-fast parts from there on out.

i figure i spent over 10,000 on my spec v...i could at least spend that much on the R-spec (when i get it...of course)

"You know what? This will decimate all... after we put about fifteen grand or more under the hood. If we have to, overnight some parts from Korea."

At first I was figuring on dropping it and throwing on some aftermarket wheels. But the wheels are gonna wait for now along with the suspension. The track version is working for me so far. So I'm lookin at a CAI, catback(or full) exhaust and a tune, if it needs it. Should put me around 300whp and leave it at that................for now................maybe.
