you are talking price??? come to NYC ughhh damn crap... for piece of junk house you need to pay at least 500.000$ in average area. I think they consider to raise lowest earning to 7$ something per hour. THis place stinks.. Bloomberg wants this city to be the most expensive city in US

I live in chicago and everything is pretty cheap. For 200k-300k you can get a nice house. Depending on the neighborhood it may be even cheaper.

You need to think about all the little things that can be changed in like a half hour like:
spark plugs (Platinum 4's)
" '' wires
oil and filter
get a "filter-charger" from fram
ram air
cold air
lower it
rims (kinda expesive but it lowers the weight under the suspension)
turbo
Chip it (ODB1)
Code It( odb2)
weight reduction if it's not for hauling people


this should be a good stating point
