i dont see a race header or cams/valve springs anywhere on that list..or an upgraded clutch or anything for suspension besides the drop..i mean sway bars arent necessarily needed but you definitely want them to firm up the handling even more so. just sayin.

when i said full exhaust i ment header also. also i ment to put clutch with the flywheel. my fault for miss posting. also i was looking at stress bar for rear. i have a massive strut brace now. i would like bushing upgrade but all places stop at 04 on part listings. but i am sure they should fit a 07. atleast some should. but when i ask people like a few scca guys i never get a reply back. hate to waste monay & not get to install them.
