...I get a great deal on one for $17k...

I then put the conservatively estimated $12k into it and I've spent $29k.
1st.. you don't have to buy NEW parts.. I have seen parts go for as low as these (AND LOWER) numerous times from local adds and threads here...

2nd... you're right, I left out EM.. that'll run ~$750 with a tune (TXS UTEC...)...

3rd... a "great deal" can be had for under 17k.. notice my post was on an '02 WRX...
some examples:
'04 for 17.9k:

'02 for 13k:

'02 for 14k:

These are just the local Nabisco ads.. if you look at you rlocal area, your deals can be substantially better

4th... After you find a great deal (say 13k..) and spent 10k in mods.. you now have a 23k STi Stomper.. anyone who says that adding 10k in mods to a WRX will not produce enough gains to stomp an STi is on crack...
