How much $$$$$$$$

with all the talk about the bad economy I am just curious how much money is still being spent on diesel performance stuff.
I know I haven't slowed down any. I figure the money I'm loosing by buying truck parts isn't any worse that the money I could be loosing on the stock market right now
any way hopefully I did this right and this is going to be an anominous poll, I'm not trying to figure out how much money certain people have or anything. so don't feel like you have to make a post saying exactly what you did spend.

the poll question is how much money have you spent on diesel performance parts in the last 12 months

very interesting I guess cryoing the intercooler is suppost to line up all the particles and make it conduct heat better?


I guess I should say I'm in the 10 to 15 range from last years build I did in may and my current one. plus a few parts along the way.

I guess if the paint was all ruff and dented up it should be more aerodynamic now which would make it faster

but yes I would include that because it was probably an unrequired improvement.
