I was looking at Quaife's site last night. My last car had an LSD, something i miss alot on this car. I had planned on putting one in, possibly before i went turbo.

Overall do you guys think the FS kit is good for the money? Or should I start building my own?

ok, i didnt read every post in here, so i hope nobody else asked this question.
is my SVT header sufficient if i do a turbo and a 3" exhaust? or should i look at getting a bigger header?

unless you do a remote mount turbo, you wont even be using the svt header.

Not on this list? Almost certainly crap.

im planning to finish jrdyfocus84's build, its all forged motor, and im going for FI as soon as i can, I plan to have it done by May. I know i need certain parts to finish this, but want some suggestions for my build.

i know i can handle 20lbs plus of boost, but what turbo/boost should i run for my build? I want 300whp and whtq and its also my DD at the moment

Also would a LSD be a good investment, especially being a DD car and what brand would you suggest?

Can I run this setup on my FSWerks 2.5" race exhaust?
2 12" rockford fosgate subs,1500w Hifonics amp, throttle spacer, performance chip, FSWerks 2.5" race exhaust, custom CAI w/Spectre 10.5x6 filter Blue leds all around pulsating in the trunk, smoked taillights and turn signals
