Twin CP3 kit and D-max - 1800
TTS Rods 2700
.020 over pistons with TTS plating - 1750
Goerend V10 converter setup - 1100
ZZ fab intake - 1050
.020 over bore, rings, port polished head, and other little stuff I can't say - 1100
Another Airdog 150 pump - 450 bucks
Hamilton Cam - don't know yet
Main studs - 200
Twin water meth stup with tank - 625
new turbo and wastegate - 2000
Fusion front bumber 995


I ask myself why I bought all this crap when I recently told myself I didn't want to spend no more than 8 grand...Now I am retardedly past that and wonder....Is this really worth it??? I could have bought a mid 90's mustang and put a retarded built turnkey motor in it...Slap some gears and whatnot in it and prolly run 9's....But instead I decided to do it in a 7500lb truck....Is there something wrong with my logic?
