==========================================
All depends on how good a scrounger you are and your mechanical & fabricatin skills.

I've got around $2500 in my green 94, I made & modified things, and feel I have good mechanical skills.

Your gonna have to modify or remove the heater box, need a bigger radiator just for starters.
