no problem.

i think the SVT header is well worth it. especially for cali because i can swap a cat on if needed to pass smog.

also the 00 intake manifold with good cams and a good tune shouldn't have problems over 5k...porting makes a huge difference.

You will want to get bigger than 24lb injectors with that list of mods. at least 30lb's will be needed.

no they wont be.

how do you figure 30# injectors are needed for a 160-175whp car?

no...24#s will be more then fine.

So i figured i would start with my build with prices. And all prices stated are new. You can usually find these items in the bst forum. links will be towards the same or comparable systems.

http://www.focussport.com/headers.htm

Borla 2.5 inch Exhaust system $345
http://www.supermobile.com/ProductDe...ode=M-5200-ZX3

I didn't see anyone mention ARP rod bolts in place of the stockers...
The Lotus/Caterham guys swear by them if you plan to rev over 7,000. Could save your motor.
Cost about $50/set.

Oh, and ITBs (if you can fit them) ; )
