233 is the torque spec.

massive makes a awesome tried and proven front brake upgrade kit. (ive worked with it and its a nice set-up)

brakes and suspension can kill engines and horsepower 9/10 times in my experience.

Hey folks.
We run our 01 ZX3 on lemons and have for several years. Needs more power but we upgraded to huge SSBC front and rear disk brakes with proportioning valve inside and it's world's better than anything we had previously. We have a header on there but looking for more power as we don't have the SVT motor, just stock 2.0. Anyone run a race cam and tuner, if so which brand etc.
We plan to run chumps next year as there are only 3 lemons races within 7 hours of here and we like to run it as often as we can
