Instead of goin to dinner or sumtin next time, put it aside forthe kit. If you do this regularly, you will see the money build up fast. You just haveto have the discipline to put aside every pay check and nt spend on other things like eating out etc. Good luck man!
agreed, find a way to save the money....whenever I get paid in cash for painting or something I always just put it in a safe place in my room and pretend I don't have it...last time I cashed it in to buy a new bed I had something like $2200 and I had no idea because I dont ever count it

No I didn't even get to open the boxes. The kit's at my dad's shop down in Florida and I'm going to school in North Dakota right now. I went down there for christmas to put it on and it didn't get there until the day I had to drive back so I was kinda disappointed and a little upset at the same time...

glowbalt... Everyones telling you not to ge a loan. Eother save up for the kit, or just buy parts seperatly and franenstein the shit together. I "gave" my roommate my stock ss intercooler, but if he doesn't install it I'd rather give it to you for cheap. Sorry OP for not keeping the chatter to a minimum, but this is on point and topic.... Lets all bump heads and see if we can "part out" that kit glowbalt wanted and try to see if we can get the price down if he buys all the stuff seperatly.....

soo... What are the major components glowbalt will need and can someone begin listing them. Already told glowbalt that the turbo is most of the cost, but if we can find cheaper component part he may even be able to get a better turbol or at least find a cheaper turbo itself..... I'm willing to throw in my stock SS intercooler, a few couplers and pipe clamps, what else does he need? List em up, and list oem, aem prices with links if possible. Gonna indian give that intercooler back for you man.... Chime in guys! Lets get glowbalt some resesrch materials and crunch numbers and best decide what's the dealio in this thread, and we will post up installation when we're done

Saving to buy the kit is the best deal. Its been tested and we know the kit works. Piecing your own kit together is gonna be cheaper, but yeah. Just save up! I'm not spending anymore money till I get it lol. Besides car payment and gas. If I can do it, you can do it.
