New Suspension

So I just ordered from Summit, 1.5" Eibach lowering springs and KYB's for 400.00 Not a bad deal for everything. Hopefully this will help me stick a little better when I start hitting the boost. Right now the original suspension doesn't work with that much HP. I will post pics as soon as I get them installed.

Very nice car and nice HP/TQ numbers to.


Don't forget the LECB, RLTB, RSTB braces they are just as important as the lower springs and the shocks.

I just did the LECB and WOW what a difference my car sits flat with no roll at all in the turns.

I got the suspension installed and I went from a 3.00 pulley to a 2.70 so I gained about 4 psi of boost. It handles much better but I still can't hook. I am thinking that I should be in the 425hp range now with the smaller pulley.
