Yea. My suspension is pretty decent right now. Body bars, gripp struts, polyurethane bushings. I'm gonna get traction bars, sway bar, etc further on down the road. Maybe subframe connectors soon.

Question is though, is my car gonna freak out with the UD pulleys? I was reading about how when idleing, your alternator can discharge or some **** and other stuff like that. Are they gonna give me problems, or what? I was looking at some March ones. Can anyone suggest a specific brand?

Contrary to what Kbush has heard, I heard that yes march makes poor quality items but that their UD pullies are actually the way to go on pullies. Shop people have said they have seen march make better power and less alternator problems than BBK and the others. He also just said this to me after a customer walked up to him and paid him for the march pullies, but the march are cheaper than BBK so I dont think he was trying to make a more expensive sale.

Intake would help more when you have other intake stuff done. When the TB and MAF is so restricting, even though a higher flowing intake manifold would can put more air through, the TB and MAF cant get that much through so it makes a minimal difference, like a couple HP. But if you wanted to get it out of the way because its a bit pricy, it wouldnt be a bad idea since once you get around to a new TB and MAF, the full potential of the intake will be realized and then you will see that power gain.

But if you are just looking for immediate inprovement, a MAF would do well, UD pullies, and maybe a 65mm TB.

I think that he's talking about a SOTP difference not just a 1/4 mile difference. I'd agree with the intake manifold along with a MAF and a 65mm TB, 1.7rr, underdrives, you've almost got the bolt ons covered lol.

also the 75 hp shot of NOS wouldnt be that bad. Kind of like a back up that you can really stump people with.

Well, if you do any more bolt ons (tb, cai, bla) and than a 75 shot I would recommend upgrading your fuel system.
