I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.

I got an email from them today saying that I would have to upgrade my account because 3rd party image hosting is no longer supported under free accounts...

However, they did say that the pictures wouldn't be deleted, just wouldn't remain posted up on forums/websites/etc
