Once you've spent all the time and money on a swap, there's no way you're ever going to get any kind of return on your investment.
If it makes you feel any better, I'm sure I've spent at least that on my WRX over the last almost-6 years and it's not half as cool as this thing.
Great writeup Dan! Can't wait to see it in person. Might need to talk to you about your PDR guy too
