When to stop?

Okay I drive a pretty nice 07st. Im a young kid that has alot of bills and doesent make a whole lot. When do i stop modding the focus. I have intake exhaust header lowered svt front brakes rims tires system and all the good stuff. But my car is still slow and the only way im ever going to be able to make it faster is a turbo kit and with them hitting 5k plus im never going to be able to save that and spend it at once. I love the car to death but i feel something with a stock turbo or higher hp stock would better feed me. I dont want to give the car up love it to death but i cant see spending another 5 grand and than a clutch and lsd when i can buy a new car. Its just the fact ive socked so much into this car i added up today and with most but not everything i have i have close to 5300 dollers in mods thatst he system tint alarm lights and all the stuff. im just stuck and young and dont know what to do but im sick of getting smoked by riceburners and boosted civics that get a boost kit for 700 dollers off ebay. why cant the dtech world be like that.

Dude, im in the same boat. My friend has an 05 IS 300, and im thinkin about maybe gettin one of those. Its a V6, rear wheel, and not too spendy to pick up a used one. He got his for 16k, so im thinking about moving up to something like that.

dude you are young just give it some time it will come, hell im 26-27 years old and am just now getting to where i can spend money on my car, my advice is just be patent and it will come, maybe consider paying off the focus and then buying a beater to drive and save on gas and insurance then put some money into the car. then only other thing i did over the years is side work (painting for me) if theres any thing you can do for cash you can get a couple hundred dollars in one weekend.

well look at this way, does it do the speed limit? or are you building a track car.
