Default The wife approved MOD money!!!!

Holy crap boys, the wife just allotted me $2000 for Mods. I'm getting the windows tinted today and I'm going to start buying Mods over the next few weeks. Now all I need is "Quality Control" from all you experts:

CAI
http://www.americanmuscle.com/steeda...gt-manual.html

Panhard
http://www.americanmuscle.com/jm-panhard-0509.html

As for the suspension I'm stuck between two. I'm not real sure about the differences and which would be better, or should I say, suitable.

Your wife is a great lady! My wife is starting to put her foot down on me - I've spent well over $4k since we bought ours. I didn't realize how expensive the CAI combos are getting! But your list looks great. I'm sure you'll enjoy.

Congrats 2k is a good amount to spend. Next month or April I am going with some Race Red "Powered By Ford" coil covers to match the paint ($250), some louvers ($200 painted), and a JTL CIA painted Race Red with a 93 tune ($750 with tuner). Thats only about 1200 bucks so I might be thinking about some axle backs also. Have fun!

Just had a similar conversation with my little lady because I'm putting cams/LTs and gears in VERY soon at Brenspeed. Isn't it great when we get permission haha

Get the new panhard bar from AM. It's easier to adjust and only cost around $10 more.

Personal preference would be LTs with catted mid pipe instead of suspension, too many large bumps to want the car any lower around here. But thats just me.
Difference between your two eibach links are in the text. The second link is no longer carried by AM, assuming the first link is the updated replacement product.
Why not try a koni yellow setup for adjustment?

Well I said screw it and bought the coil/valve covers and the louvers today. American muscle has the valve covers on discount plus the discount so it was a must. I think I'm changing my mind on the CAI, think I'm gonna go with Steeda, probably from AM. I'm thinking about LT's after that plus the Steeda is what I had on my old car, my only complant would be I hope the fitment is better.....that last one kinda held together like junk.

Right on, get it while it's hot. On sale, hard to pass.
