I live in southern california. DOn't know about tristate. We get so many racers down here, it's incredible. People and their SRT-4s going pshhhhhh everytime they change gears. Damn, makes you turn your head. I could add aqua mist injection, DC header, Magnaflow high flow cat, CAI, a 2.2 supercharger pulley to pump out higher PSI, URD(Split Second) AIC 1, etc. That would seriously give some crazy boost. I'll defintely be going over 210+whp with that aqua mist doing a lot of the work.

A lot of Corolla owners, especially the one that I go to school with has an 04 Corolla and he's got:

Intercooled/Turbocharger T-25BB@ 10PSI, Apexi AFC-2, 550cc injectors, adjustable BOV, custom return fuel line, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, Vortech FMU, supplemental 125 PSI fuel pump, and PVC intercooler piping under his custom mods. Man.....all on a 1.8L motor.

Ive beaten stock evos pretty badly. My car weighs about 2,900lbs due to the fact that I did some weight mods, and I can always up the psi quite a bit due to the fact that I got fully forged internals, the only bottleneck is the cam. GT mustangs are imo over rated, they make about 230ish rwhp on a 5spd. It cost me about 12,000 to build my v6 (including the cost of the car). I could easily run low 11's if I improved my 60 ft time, and got some good slicks.

I'd say 1-2 years. It's agp though, so it might not last you that long. Depends on gaming industry, app industry, and the OS's that are sure to come.

Well, the guy already sold the cam, damn. So I guess its time to go back to upgrading the comp. How much could I get for my current proc, vid card, hs/f and mobo. Im hoping around 200 bucks.

Also how good are the hs/f that come with the 3000+ amd64's. From what I heard they are decent, and most people got like 2.3 ghz with them w/o going above 40ish degrees.

Looks good, but good luck getting it smogged though. Here in California we have the tightest SMOG regulation in the US.

$200 sounds about right for your parts you listed. Maybe $150.

Default Re: how long would my comp last me

will the parts I listed come down in price by christmas. Im assuming at least the vid card will since there are so many new ones coming out. Do prices usually depreciate a good amount by christmas time or do the prices remain the same?

thats a pretty nice setup you got on your stang. What PSI you running at? im guessing like 15? You can prolly get a lot more if you go to like 20 or 32...lol depending on if your turbo can take it. But i dont know guys, like i respect the cars that go fast, but they got nothing on classic muscle cars. While you guys put more money into your cars, the value (most of the time) either stays the same or goes down. But like my car, 1967 mercury cougar xr-7, as i put things in my car AND as it gets older, it gets more expensive (assuming that i keep it in good condition). Just my 2 cents.....maybe 3 cents.
