Current Progress:






Im also thinking i will lower the front of the car 1/2" to make the wheel well gap a little less. I cant lower the car in the rear without rolling the fenders. (i only have 1/2" clearance in the rear because of the 275's...and i dont particularly want to roll the fenders)

Awesome car - looks like a new car - What kind of RWHP gains do you think you will see with the engine/exhaust upgrades?

1/2 an inch lower in the front wont make the car look retarded...it will just make the wheel well gap a bit smaller which will make the car look like it has a proper stance...right now it looks too high in the front end (i swapped the front coil springs and they are a bit taller then the ones that came out)

reieved these parts yesterday:

- Battery Box
- Strut brace



I was thinking of removing the factory CD changer and trim from the right side of the trunk...the battery box should fit nicely. then i will just make some custom trim to make it look "finished". (the box is stainless...it just has a white protective film on it)
