    just spend it. i know it's a lot easier for me when i don't physically have the cash in front of me, money just gets spent. that's why buying online is so bad for me, money just dissapears.

    it always starts out as the only mod. then after that you'll want bigger injectors, fuel pump, and it starts to avalanche.

    like just buying rims. after you buy rims and tires you'll want to lower it, then you'll need shocks, then a camber kit. it just keeps going

    Pull the trigger, you won't regret it. The chip completely changes the car.

    Here's a rule to live by when modding a car...

    DO NOT MOD A CAR IF YOU CAN NOT AFFORD TO REPAIR WHAT IT DAMAGES

    I would never have heavily modded my 04 Cobra if I could not cover the cost of a new engine / tranny / rearend, etc...

    It sounds if $600 is a lot to you, do not buy it... because if you blow your motor, you will be in a lot pain financially...

    im with the poster that says cars/vehicles arent a good investment... brian, you should at least know what im talking about after all ive gone through with that damn truck....

    save the money, you dont need that much damn horsepower for your daily driver, 200+hp dosent do a shitload of good in bumper to bumper traffic

    never mod a car you don't own.

    own the car first, then mod
