Default P51's Semi budget build thread

So I'll start off by saying I've been waiting for almost a year to do this correctly and as they say, "it has begun"

First I'll label all I have now and how much I bought it for (since this is a semi budget build)

Sliver 91 w/96,xxx miles- $350
Maintenance- $300
(All belts, seals, etc..)
*MS-$250
*AEM WB- $150
Autometer gauges w/cluster- $150
(Boost, oil pressure, water temp)
Koesi K1's - $50
205/50/15 Nitto Neogen's - $200
1.8 brake upgrade- $150
Diy Home depot air damn- $7
2.5'' exhaust- $100
Racing seat w diy brackets- free
harness's- free
K&N- $40 (only thing I bought new lol)
*FM rear sway- $45
*Kyb ADJ W/ FM springs- $110
10-AE Strut tower brace- $70
Sr20 T25 w/lines, hardware, and gaskets- $60
*SS log mani + SSDP 2.5" - $330
*I/c setup w bov- $150
IAT- $30
Hard dog H1- $250
Oil feed- $14
*RC 550 injectors- FREE!!!
Injector clips - $20
Hard Top- $190
*(bought on MT.net )

Now If my Calculations are correct That's a grand total of - $3,006 +/- $100


Not to bad for a pretty worthy Car IMHO lol
Now the pics will be coming soon there will be lots...
I know everyone likes to see it come together..
(*It has been a year since I first started gathering parts and throughout that year I put on what I have listed)

That I haven't pulled those together yet sadly I'm trying to get some rx7 pink tops, or some green supra's.. just trying to find them for the right price. Then cops are on there way too, My turbo is not on yet will be in the next few weeks for sure should have injectors by then.
