around 6k - Majority is swap costs, and I have alot more to buy before that engine even gets in a bay. So...add atleast another 3k, making it 9 total. More like 15k when I'm done everything.

$2,300 for the car in 2010,
$900 for replacement clutch,
~$300 for brakes/oil,
$60 for replacement front tires,
$90 for lights,
~$500 dollars for new timing belt/water pump.

Thats about $4150 so far which honestly isn't that bad based on my crappy student income but I still have oodles of money to spend on what I want to do to her.

It will take him a moment to realize that he's about to make a 180 degree turn at speed, but you will be ready for it. Brace for the g's, and fast heel-toe work.
