"when I'm completely finished with this project (maybe spring/summer of 2008) I will make all my documentation available for everyone to read (including the results of removing as much weight as possible)."

But since I posted in this thread last, I've swapped out my entire suspension (springs, shocks & sway bars), put 215/35-18s on my wheels, installed a FRRP short throw shifter, removed the shifter counterweight, installed a lower engine mount, installed HFC, 3" exhaust system, 3" flexpipe and a custom tune from Tom. Some cosmetic mods as well. Haven't had time to do much more with it but as it warms up a little I'll start working on the weight reduction....
I'll take a few pics of the plug mod sometime later this week with a digital camera. You can try it with your stock wires and coil. Since the plugs don't use crush washers, you will have to purchase 4 boxes (or 16 plugs) to find four that will face the exhaust port on each cylinder. It is sorta a PITA, but it works and if it yields 1hp per cylinder on average then I think it's worth the time and extra expense.
