that thing sounds awesome man im jealous what kind of horespower are you pushing out now? the parts i think are almost as much as the car. i think that its actually really smart to take a super reliable economy or very common very dependaple vehicle and just dump the upgrades on it youll always have new ways to tune up or improve this vehicle its so compatible with so many parts its basically meant to be modified that why so many different parts work and fit when it comes to repairs
