I'll start a journal. Like i said I'm not too worried about the price anyway. I have the driveshaft too btw, forgot to mention that.
I can get junkyard fans for next to nothing.
I was planning on running shorty headers and they tend to be a lot cheaper, plus the car is getting lowered so i don't want any ground clearance problems with long tubes.

I know the little things add up, but I'm pretty good add staying within the budget i set, plus i have a lot of parts that i will need already.
