Egz 2005 front brake swap, replacing all the bolts in the suspension, FocusSport camber plates, and possibly changing out the springs for a stiffer one.

I'm going to be ready for a full season in EP.

thenorm im retiring my (mild) SM car to DD <--the one in the avatar, and im building an FSP car.

So far i have bought or taken from my SM car, but not installed:
chip, coilovers, rear 25mm sway, front strut bar, camber plates, rear camber bolts, pullies, 65mm TB, race seat, fender flares, and i have my 225 kumho V710 on 15" team dynamics pro race 1.

next to come is:
CAI (soon), header & exhaust (soon i hope), crash bolts (maybe), rear strut bar (if i can Fab one up), engine mounts (maybe), and maybe next year 10" wide 15" wheels and 275 hoosiers

Do it, especially if you track the car. I have HP Plus pads on my ST and that thing stops on a dime. The only downside is when they aren't hot they are LOUD as hell. Sounds like you are driving around and stopping on the metal backing plates.

Ask a few people that have been on the track with me. I've actually made people light headed from stopping so fast with these pads.

As for upgrades to the car though, I have to yank the transmission out of the ST and get the 3rd gear synchro replaced. I sorta kinda fried it the last track day of the year, high rpm shifts are now grindy. heheh So more then likely it's going to Terry Haines and getting fully rebuilt for the abuse I put it through on road courses.

SkaAddict Full front-end rebuild (Cervini hood, Euro fenders, '02 Facelift/ST170 bumper), rear '02 Facelift/ST170 bumper and reverse lights and a complete respray courtsey of my future father-in-law in John Deere "blitz black" semi-matte black paint. Although that'll be more like March-April...
