Nvm I'm tired of trying to explain myself. I ain't like you all. I can't just settle for some crappy slow shitbox to get from a to b cuz I'll go nuts. The SVT in stock form will suit my needs just fine and dandy but that doesn't mean I can't slap an exhaust on it for cheap if I want. Obviously a pwsc is a huge investment and odds are it wont' ever happen. but that's not the point, I can still dream

Even a cheap exhaust is 200 or better, which again could be used on G.

The BMW was a slow shitbox lol, so what was the excuse there? It had a BMW badge is invalid argument

We all trying to just talk sense into you!

Not counting my hitch I have $180 wrapped into my beater and that's all maintenance and a can of nightshade. Maybe an air freshener too for added hp

BMW was slow but it handled great and something about it was just fun to drive. i dunno can't really explain it

only thing that isn't 'fun' to drive that i'd go for would be something that has 5klb+ towing capacity

Svt slow. Handles great. Fun to drive. STOCK

Your argument is invalid.

Exhaust for svt = 1-2 HP.

Spacer = 11 HP

I can do math, can you?

Not hating, just giving advice <3

I'll want to at the very least get an exhaust for a DD cuz stock cars sound lame
so........another season of burning through 2 sets of street tires? why not do slicks/wheels next year and just bite the bullet?

if you can afford it then do it! I'll mostly just be jelly.

if you can't afford it then and drive something boring until you can afford it............money piles up fast when you live within what you can afford.

the spacer is extremely well documented on multiple forums to show pretty decent gains....

I agree save money modding DD and mod all the track cars.

also dont quite understand the whole avoid miles on the G thing.......

if you plan to someday TT it then you also plan to do a built motor someday........how does it make sense to put only 25k more miles on the car and then TT/built motor it in 2016 ish vs putting 100k more miles on and then TT/built motoring it in 2016?
