Price is really the best reason not to. Also, the more extensively you modify the car, the more headaches you'll run into, guaranteed.

true.. but it would allow me to launch the car a little softer to achieve more.

I don't regret going down the rabbit hole!!! But my bank account says otherwise!! I try not to think how much I've spent from start to finish and know that I won't recoup anywhere close to that much when I sell the car. I plan to hold this car for another 4 - 5 years though.

DO IT! imagine the feeling of getting smoked by a someone that did get a PS2 when they had the cash. You'll never forgive yourself. You're not taking your cash with you...it has been a shit year for many so why not give yourself something to get excited about.

seize the moment brother!!

Are you doing it because you can or because you want to?

The best advice i can give is to drive a PS2 car before you may a decision. That way, you can make sure it's everything you hope it will be, and nothing you hope it isnt (i.e., tradeoffs/drawbacks)

Using the amount of money to upgrade to a B58 might be a better idea in the long run
