well my stoptech brake package and all the other goodies that comes with brakes have been ordered!!!!! now i can stop with out the car feeling like it is going to fall apart.

probably going to pick up my HFP suspension this weekend. so those two items can be cross off the list. ordering camber bolts possibly depending on if i get these eibach sportlines. i think that will be a great handling setup for what i do. HFP Struts with eibach sportlines with the stickie 235 S-Drives.

just need to order my valvetrain which im ordering right after christmas that will be:
supertech springs (92psi)
supertech retainers
supertech seats
already have my seals probably going with OEM.

then i need to either spc camber arms or skunk2 camber arms v2 not sure which ones im going with yet.

then order my engine liner (driver side) and then its on to the big install party with tons and tons of beer and food. then its on to more and more and more powah!!!!!!

TURBOSIS VS MASSIVE WHIPPLE BLOWER!

Will update as parts come in.

Didn't you already have coils? I had the HFP with sportlines it rides really smooth the only issue i had with it, the back wheel gap is like 1 finger still and the front is no gap and it kinda looks weird.

Well I thought about.... But I don't want to spend a lot of money on it. I just want something that will ride great, perform outstanding, and require huge amounts of camber... I really like the way your car sits now danny and it ride super smooth

This is the only picture i ever took when i had them installed :c Its pretty hard to see, but the tire is just a fraction inside the fender in the front and i can fit my index finger in the rear...i don't have this set up anymore, just HFP setup. I think i might get the neuspring sports though they are suppose to be the best performing spring for our car and they have an even drop for the coupes unlike the sportlines.

I have had my HFP for 10k miles or so, i got it like 1 month after i got the car.
Then i had skunk2 springs which suck really bad, i only had them for 1k miles. Then i got the sportlines. I only had those for about 2k miles before i parted out my car.

I'm still pretty set on Koni's/Neuspeed sport.

Unless I work out some coilovers with redshift

EDIT: And with a few large people in my car it drastically changes how that car rolls down the road. I wouldn't mind a firmer setup/something more devoted to handling. Sportlines are for looks only. The spring rates are poo for handling and they have coil binding issues.

do you have these issue with your sportline setup??? my pro kit handles very well...

EDIT: i do have the front and rear sway as well wonder if that is playing a huge factor

i just want something that is not expensive that is going to ride good look good and perform well for what i do which is normally some track and normal highway driving. how much are the knoi and neuspeed setup cost?

Overall there are no issues with my sportlines at all. They are just more of a drop for looks spring. They handle good, but I think it has to do more with my RSB. I've been in a car with sportlines and stock sways near the limit and it handled like poop.

Unless you're carving backroads all the time you probably won't notice. Sportlines and pro kit have very similar spring rates.

It's like $730 for the koni/neuspeed

yea see that would be good enough for me. long as i can take a turn fast sometime im happy with it. but i dont want to spend 700+ on suspension. i mean i think it will be a awesome deal if i came up with money. but i have to wait and see what happens.

^Tyrone, remember u can get rid of ur pro-kit, so it might be around 600 you'd have to spend for that setup... it would drive sooo good
