MONEY MONEY MONEY!
We're keeping tabs on how much money we put into Project MILF. After all, we can't blow our whole paycheck on car parts. Keep in mind that this tally includes prices for parts only. The original cost of the car and labor rates are not included as there are variables to both figures.

Clocking In
After our last foray to Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey, we were able to discern how much gears and a tune woke up Project MILF. This time around, we wanted to see what FRPP's Big-Boost kit would do for our beloved project car. In the following chart, the first number is the difference from the previous modification, while the second number is the difference from the baseline. Mission accomplished!
