I am 18. It takes me a year to save up for anything because my parents won't let me get a job until next semester when I'm basically out of high school. I save every penny and don't eat lunch and wait for my birthday and christmas so I can ask for some money. I am truely jewish financially.

Thanks though, this swap should be fun

Wow what a transformation from what it was to what it is. You made your car look like it is now with the way you obtain money or you sold your subs and crap?

^ Mainly saving every penny. Right now I have $260 in quarters that none of my friends or family wants. I sold the wheels, the subs and 2 amps are for sale if anyone wants them.

Wow. Thats a butt load of quaters. Must weight alot! If i did what your doing with saving your money i would be as thin as a tooth pick and would die of thirst, due to the fact that i prolly drink more water than a camel.

Im burnt out on drinking mountain dew and stuff. Ramen noodles ftw!! I lived off of those things for a whole summer when my dad was at work. Only thing i knew how to cook at the time. Now i can cook alot of stuff, but im too lazy to clean anything so i stick to mostly hot pockets and anything microwaveable. Lol.

Alright so I have all of the 5 speed parts I need except the shift linkage, pedal assemblies, and the master cylinder. All of which I am picking up on Sunday.

This weekend or early next week I am ordering an Exedy stage 1 organic clutch kit and a fidanza 8lb flywheel. I will be rockin this stage 1 clutch kit till I go boost, which will be after college, then I will upgrade to something a little more Chuck Norris.

Plans for the motor this upcoming year are a custom 3" exhaust, Bisi header, Skunk2 intake manifold, skunk2 throttle body, some various upgrades to other stuff I can't remember right now, and an AEM EMS with tune. I am going with this setup to get some decent power seeing that this is my dd until I can afford a full H22 turbo build and another car to replace it as my dd. All of these parts minus the header will also transfer over to my turbo build.

As for the rest of the car I have too much stuff to do with the tranny and motor so the exterior, interior, and suspension are being put on hold unless I can get a good deal on a progress rear sway in the late summer or something.

Picked up the shift linkage, pedals, and master cylinder today so all I need is the clutch kit, flywheel, and I am getting a pspec ss for the hell of it.

I must say taking out the clutch pedal was fucking annoying......
