CAM doesn't require a roll bar... unless the safety section they reference requires it for open cars, which I don't have time to read right now.

At one point I gave the cost breakdown to that point. I guess I'll try to update it here (I probably don't want to know).

I did this back in the early 2000's on a now defunct local web forum. There was debate on whether to include parts only installed on the vehicle, or include spares, repairs, maintenance, labor, etc. I don't have time to go over everything, but the low hanging fruit in the past 2-3 years:

Street wheels & tires: $3000
Front suspension: $5000
Rear suspension: $3000
Steering: $1400
Cooling: $550
Rear-end: $1500
Engine rebuild (labor): $7000ish
Engine rebuild (new parts): $7000

I know I've forgotten a few things, I added two to this list. I didn't do as well at keeping track as things went on. This list seems bad enough at this point. lol. Sadly, I suspect I'd only be able to list it for $15k and I doubt I'd actually get that (unless I found the right buyer who just had to have it).

Yea, I haven't counted oil changes. But there was some maintenance stuff in the list. Though I had a coolant leak and therefore the new hoses and stuff were somewhere between a repair and an upgrade. I've spent more than what's on the list, but there's plenty on the list. People can always subtract out anything they don't think belongs, but they can't guess if it's not there. I'm sure there is more, but I can't think what right now.

I also paid a bit under $200 (from memory) for an SLP Y pipe. I bolted it on and couldn't decide how it was going to fit and if it was going to rub or make noise and I took it off. I might find time to put it back on, but it's out in the garage too.
