buy some good wheel cleaner cause those wheels are f**k to clean properly

Spend the first lot of cash on new fuel filter, air filter, plugs, leads, new coolant, radiator hoses, tranny fluid, diff oil.

Buy headlight covers, it seems to save them from yellowing as quick

If you cant afford a new exhaust, then take it to an exhaust place and get them to chop out one or two mufflers and weld in straight pipe in place cause the 3 standard mufflers are overkill

Dunno Super Cheap i guess for the headlight covers.

And when i had those wheels, i removed the dust cover from behind them so the wheels didnt look like hubcaps so much

Remove each wheel and jam a couple screwdrivers under the dust cover from behind the wheel, and rip it out with some pliers. They make a good frisbee :)

Intake mods dont have to cost that much. Youve probably read this article before, but anyway....

tiniting them is almost as bad as the clear ones..... and you talk about rice, thats what your doing with the tinting.

lol there arent many e series that can keep up with me either on the track or at the strip lol so excuse me for being a "RICER"
