Why did you buy a black fuel door when your car is already black?
The 99-01 models came without a hood scoop stock but you can buy them online, I think late model restoration has them but I'm not positive.

Ugh, Looks like I'm customizing that hood scoop insert. I can't see myself buying the hood scoop (http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/...ang-Hood-Scoop) just to fit that billet piece in there. Plus it'll add drag (although prob negligible).

A roll-bars function is to address understeer/oversteer issues, as it is a tuning device. Does your car have either of these issues? If it does not, or you don't know... don't get a new sway bar

Nope! I've been updating the 1st post, to keep as a reminder of my decisions, and the stabilizer bar has been removed. Also added some brake parts, but I'm pretty limited with going any bigger because of my winter tires (They JUST clear the calipers now). Jazzer, how much is brake fade a concern at an average autocross events with the HPS pads?

Brake fade is not an issue at AX and the mods found in my Brakes Upgrade thead are WAY more than a street car needs. Your car is a '00 and likely the brake fluid has not been changed... am I right? The pads are a maintanence issue and to replace the OEM rubber lines, one needs to flush the system anyway.

Pads, fluid and SS lines will take you a HUGE distance between your current brakes and up to a hair below* what a BB kit would provide at FAR less $$$

Jazzer

*just a bit of improved cooling

That's what I was hoping, considering most AX runs are around 60-120 secs, correct? I have Wagner ceramic brake pads on there now, have you ever used them before?

I'll definitely will be draining the fluid when I do the pads next time, and upgrading to the DOT 5.1 fluid.

- FRPP 8.8" Rear Pinion Flange (http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/...-Pinion-Flange)
- Moser Rear Differential Bearing Cap Stud Kit (http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/...g-Cap-Stud-Kit)

To be installed at a shop which I'm still looking for in the Albany area for hopefully around $400.
Getting closer to a finalized list of upgrades (just updated).

Jazzer, think these rear end upgrades will have any benefit/negative effects on the handling? I can see a slight increase in rotational mass, and stiffer axles, but I don't see that helping/hurting much in the turns (handling a future increase in HP, that's another story).

Anything else you'd add/remove from my "wish list" on page 1?

Should I be looking at a bump steer kit when using the coil-overs? (First page updated as well)

Any major benefit to adding the ball joint kit as well?:

When upgrading to the 31 spline axle, I won't need to switch out my alum drive-shaft for a 31 spline DS will I? (http://www.americanmuscle.com/96gtand96coa.html)
