Thanks everyone! The first part of March I will OFFICIALLY be credit card debt free. So the money that I pay to a debt consolidation company will be going into a special savings account specifically for my mods! It's only taken 4 years to get to $0.00 but it was well worth it to say that I will have no credit card debt!!!! It's quite fun cutting them all up one by one. I did promise my wife a trip somewhere nice so I'll have to work that into my plans. Maybe I could tell her that if I had a few of these modifications our trip would "save" us gas as we traveled! LOL again thank you for everyone's advice and feedback. I'll keep everyone posted on the mods as they happen!

good list but i would do something about that CAI. There is no way in this world i would pay 400 bucks for one. I put mine together for like 56 or 57 dollars. You dont have to have brand name to be good!

Well the BFI CAI is a little better quality that a DIY one. It has an advantage that the intake tube gradually decreases in size that speeds up the air as it enters the throttle body making it slightly better than a DIY CAI. It also has a top quality filter on the end, which in itself usually costs more than $50. Now is it worth a lot more money for a little more performance? that's up to the user to decide.

Well I figure it like this. It's been 4 years since I've spent any amount of money of myself. I think $400 isn't bad all considering. I'm really looking forward to starting all the modifications next year. Thanks for all the great feedback! I will definately keep everyone updated and take lots of pictures along the way! Take care and I hope everyone can endure the last few hectic days of this Holiday! Merry Christmas all!
