yeah, forgot to mention, ride has only 12k on it so new struts are unnecessary for the time being...

nice - actually some stuff here I may do... (I have an auto by the way)

- I'm heavily considering the power fc
- keeping my car n/a so negative on the forced induction (valves, valve springs, bushings)
- not sure how the lower arm/tie bars help suspension
- how will the oil cooler/pump upgrade help?
- definitely painting the Intake manifold (stock GT one is blah)
- think I talked to ya about the cables before (Eclipse deck is installed and front components/amp will be using all monster cables) thumbsup

power fc seems to be worth the $$$ but must get dyno tuned for optimal results.

front lower arm bar assist with steering response and rear lower should help car feel more neutral in turns; lessen understeer

upgraded oil cooler and pump just allows your engine to run better and safer during aggressive driving; autox

you never responded about the cables. the best thing (so you feel secure) is to provide a fax and i can send you an accommodation form (pm me). external accommodations are normally 60% off retail. if you search our website www.monstercable.com and look under car audio or if you've spoken to my colleague (he's the car audio specialist) then you can find out what you may need or want. you can also wait it out until we redo our car audio line (supposedly we're gonna introduce power amps, bigger capacitors and gel batteries, plus more).

actually I've been considering the Zex wet kit as well (+ purge kit and light). I'll most likely do that last after every other mod is completed...

I'll definitely get the Hypermotive pieces in the near future. Where can I purchase the oil cooler/pump?

also, I talked to Noel and he suggested some things. What I'm thinking is to have my audio installed at Tweeter and just ask them what monster cables they would use on my project. Then I could get back to you with exactly what I need... How's that sound bro?

[/quote]TRD discountinued their oil cooler but i've seen it sold in forums on occasion and i'm sure someone else makes one. prodrive can still produce one for the celi but you have to contact them directly prodrive . oh yeah, ignition solutions also make aftermarket coil-over plugs (replaces the distributorless wires) here: http://www.ignitionsolutions.com/default.asp

as for the wires, sure, ask what the installers recommend then hit me up with a pm

wink

hey bro - I think all of us GT autos should realize that without f/i or nitrous it's really pointless to street race against anyone. sure I can take those little civics and such but why would I want to? There's really no pride to be taken from those kills... Most of my mods are appearance with as much Performance sprinkled in as can be done on an n/a auto GT. As I stated earlier, after I get the Zex kit and Power FC, I might tear it up a little - but only against worthwhile competition... thumbsup
