OP, I have to assume you are grossly exaggerating about 15k in parts. You have what appears to be a lightly modified Miata. If you put 15k in parts in that car and it is not fully built with a baller suspension and all sorts of other goodies for track reliability, someone screwed you hard.

I corrected myself further down. It's the total money I have into the car including some labor. I might soon have that much in parts after I'm done with my turbo

Welcome to MT.net, where we are blunt ********.

For 200hp, you don't NEED injectors.

Unless you got your entire car panted/body kit, suspension, and are crazy about little things and spend money to replace things. I doubt 10k is in that car.
No, you don't add how much the car was to that either.
I also doubt you have that much in the car since you were a college student and just not getting a job.

Please don't try to impress us. There will be nothing but bloodshed.

All that aside you have a good platform, do it right the first time.

I've had a job, but I just got a new better paying one. Let's just go with slightly modified instead of a number. I got that off the top of my head so I'm sure it's not accurate.

I went through a drivethrough yesterday and the young lad taking orders asked me if I drift and how much I have into my car. It made me think of this thread.
