did u do the pi swap? if not take the $ get some patriot stage 2 heads and a vt or comp cam the rest of the $ will go to the install. u will be much more happy with it thatn the suspension. who cares if u can hook up if u can't go no where.

i live in Pa, weall have to get them done? i am emmisions exempt because of low miles hahaha
i dont have emissions down here in tennessee... and there is no way in hell i can expect my car to pass them... lol... no cats at all and probably is pushing lots of polutants out which is good. lol... im the reason for global warming.. hah...

It's not terribly hard to pass, not like cali. They do OBDII emissions testing, so pretty much if your cars not throwing a code and the rear o2 sensors arent turned off youll pass. I pass with 2 cats and all the other crap done to my car.

he said it runs a 14.1... so hes got somethin done to the motor.. im sure he is wanting to make it handle alot better than a stock GT before he gets going with power.. whats good with alot of power if you cant go no where with it? lol... all you will do is spin... you need both... if i had to do it again.. i would have the suspension first.. i just wanted more and more power... to the point where i cant hook up.. and it sucks spinning and being slow with 440rwhp

all that stuff will be fine... will help weight transfer some too... but in the future you will want to look into some more rear suspension stuff to help hook up better too..

What all is done to the car? 3k for what your doing seems like alot to me... unless the car already is making decent power it seems like a waste. your well over the price of a brand new PI engine and real close to the price of a complete supercharger kit.
i was wondering the same thing. even for road racing you need more power than the npi is putting out
