Recaros
wood trim
suede option
pano roof
chrome wheels


due to mileage i want to change: (add suggestions please)
oil pump-OEM
water pump - OEM
all fluids
tune up
lifters - Johnson 2110R
trunion upgrade


because i did the above and have it torn apart i want to do:
fastprom 4.5 intake
ATI crank pulley
griptech 2.55
BTR stage 2/LT1z 2.5
FIC 1000
all new gaskets, seals and cam kit, trays, etc....

love to hear the feedback. sorry for the lack of pictures. I have not taken any? I should probally do that....

Welcome. Pictures or it didn't happen! lol Your mod list looks pretty good. I would recommend a few things though; assuming you have a spring isolater change it to a solid, If you are running upper and lower pulley I'd recommend a HX or an expansion tank and pump (with an upper and lower you will be generating some heat) and lastly.... I'd run a cooler plug of your choice, fan favorite around here are the NGK TR7IX.

Edit: OH! When you take our SC lid off, give your brick a good inspection. A quick google search on the topic will show you they have collapsing issues and need reinforcement.

I would highly recommend using the below vendors for the needs above, you can't beat their customer service, experience, and price.

Welcome Wagon, Eh Eh. Car looks awesome, if you need any help with the parts you listed I have everything in stock. If need be I can package items together beyond what we have on the website to try and get you the best cost. I would recommend ID1050 or 1300 over the FIC. The quality can not be matched on Injector Dynamics. Contact me anytime if you need anything.
