Well, first things on the list are 3.73's and a chin spoiler. As far as the boost plans, ill have to see how much I have by March, and judging by that amount ill estimate how much I may have saved by June.

If I see boost as being a no-go this spring/summer, ill grab some underdrive pulleys, lower control arms, and a catback, and maybe ill see what a dynotune can get me.

Not a whole helleva lot, the car is kind of taking a sort of backseat. Paying off all my credit cards and trying to get certed so I can work less and get paid more.

What I would LIKE to do is get my saleens, some DRs and new front rubber (mine are balding now pretty bad), LCAs, and maybe some springs. Besides routine maintenance. Also have my gears installed.

Can someone explain to me everyone's fascination with control arms? Brian is cutting 1.8's with a stock susp. You guys wont need those until wayyy down the road. It is money better spent elsewhere.

Cause i want them noooooowwwwwww!! *pouts*

Idk, theyre a rather cheap suspension mod, and they should help out a bit. That way i can launch at 2500 and not worry about spinning. If im not spinning, im bogging. theres no inbetween.

and control arms are going to help this... how?

The purpose of an aftermarket control arm is to help plant the rear end when launching and avoid wheel hop. The stock parts which are usually stamped cause deflection when you launch.

Trust me, put the money elsewhere.
