What Does it Take to Max Out Your Mafia Wars Position?

I’ll admit it, I have a guilty pleasure and its name is Mafia Wars. I sincerely doubt I’m alone in this regard, but that doesn’t make it any less silly.

So, when I stumbled upon a guide the other day that claimed to help you reach the top of the pile where all the elite mafias are sitting I was a little dubious. These guys pour hours of their life into the game. How can I be one of them without doing the same? It’s expensive, right?
