mod bug

what the heck..

why do I keep feeling a need to go faster?

and faster...

I have headers, a few intake mods and now a chip on the way for my '02... and I have more plans in the future..

why can I not be happy with my car as-is? anyone else find this is a problem, too?

am I alone?


and above all - why does it have to cost so much??

I didn't get a gt because the insurance was too high, but lately I've been thinkin for the money I've put in my car (and what I'm planning to put into it) it wouldn't have made a differance.

yeah try going through the mod bug with two cars.

I had a decked out V6 that whooped on V8s

Now Ive upgraded to a V8 thats decked out to beat up on the vettes and supras that sneak around town

Gotta love the hobby

Ps: Now im saving up for a better faster v8 right off the bat (03/04 cobra - hopefully mid-late summer)

(in my first month of owning a mustang)
week one: just cold air intake and exhaust, that will do it
week two: just cold air intake and exhaust and gears/shifter/programmer and that will do it
week three:just every mod that doesnt require digging into my engine, and saleen body kit and rims, and im done
week four: 2004 cobra's look nice, wonder how much that monthly car payment would be

that's what I said when I had my old 3.8 chevy, I picked up an 89 5.0

I ended up with 2 v8s with lots of money going into each

if you can pull it off, more power to you!

Payments would not be that bad, but, then you have to add in all the stuff you want to add on to the cobra. Once you drive the stock 390 HP for a week (a week being a very generous estimate), you will want more. And the problem is, more HP is soooooo easy to get that it takes a lot of will power not to buy the simple bolt ons needed to get it.

By the way, 03's and 04's are going for between 20k used and 26k new (coupes). And some are just a touch more with a KB or whipple....
