I figured I'd go ahead and start a build thread to document my build. You won't see anything crazy here since this is still my daily driver but hopefully I'll make wise choices and help others out as well. I also plan to talk about the good and the bad here and keep the mileage and mpg's updated so you guys can see the affects on upgrading!

2-14-12 (Valentines Day I love you ) Averaging 17 MPG and have a little over 8600 miles on her.
