As of yet, only .5 times-one side once. At least a few more times are in order I suppose...

other than the $300- $600 that I paid for each of them....(buying the first one a year and a half ago!)
I have spent about $1000 in all new replacement susp. for the 2000 wagon, and now need a rear subframe.
about $100 in the 2001 SPI sedan for parts needed whan swapping engines from the 20002 spi sedan I bought but wasn't worth the $ needed to replace the susp/rockers/clutch.
and about $100 on the 2005 Duratec sedan that I just paid $300 for and drive it every day (so far my favorite/ and the wife wants to take it from me)

although I have found a set of 4 Koni coil overs (brand new, still in boxes) for $300 and reading some of the build threads, I would like to do the wagon, or the '05 with a few add-on's

New 2003 zx3 in 2003. $11,000. Then it all went to hades...

Cervinis kit back in the f&f days.
Sportlines, konis big antisways, subs, amps, 2 clutches now a third. Yeowch. Can't believe I've had it for so long and it's still kicking.

Also: I bought a zx3 power premium (equivalent of the titanium in its day) for $11,000 even... NEW. Think about that

Not really looking to sell mine but in part for the right price everything I have is for sale, would love to know what mine is worth, it has some big extras but I know that can make some things worth less. Otherwise it's in great shape. Any input would be nice...

Minus the cost of the cars, but including ALL the parts I've bought over the years ... must be upwards of $10K.

On the car right now (and I didn't buy all of it):
C/F hood
DGR Coil-overs
Dom's FCA'S, RCA's, P/S adapter
P/S cooler
Ebay header
Magnaflow exhaust
SVT head, VCT delete
Web Cams
CFM cam gears
FRIM
Pro-M 70mm
FR 42# injectors
CFM oil pump gear
Torsen LSD
SVT shifter base
Ebay Sparco steering wheel
PS airbag delete (euro pocket)
xCal II and PRP

Waiting to put my C/F hatch on the car, no ambition/time/need more parts.
Also dragging my feet on the 2.5 swap.


So my estimated $10K deep is still growing. But I'm still in it for less than a ST and just as quick, maybe a bit faster. So I don't feel it's really money wasted.
But I have bought and sold a few things and this is the second car. Spread that $10,000+ out over 14 years and it's not really that bad.
