      Damn dude, I wish I could still live with my parents. Cooked meals, no rent, no insurance, no utilities, cable, free beer.. Growing up was the worst thing I ever did !

      Kudos and respect for the big leap you took with your car. Under similar circumstances I could totally see myself doing the same thing. And you're right about owning it for 15+ years and it not being a bad move. Hell, I've owned 5 different vehicles within the last 2 years alone lol.. If I did the math I'm sure it would add up very quickly.

      Do you plan to ever do anything "big" with it again? Or just run it until it dies?

      The only thing I could think of doing more would be intake manifold, paint, possibly wheels.

      I mean, what else could I do after that? With a new manifold, I could push more than 25psi I'm sure. If I'm getting 386awhp with 16psi, I could only imagine what it would do at 25psi.

      Fortunately when I did my build, I did the internals too. I only have about 20k miles after the build, I would imagine I could put a lot more.

      But it's getting cheaper by the day.
