And yes, Cazz, May-7 is next open lapping day @ HPR (in fact, every Friday in May is an open lapping day).

Yeah, I put extra long bolts on there. ECS recommended 50 mm bolts up front and 45 mm in back.

Rich - I am putting some H&R race springs on next month. Can I mess with the camber on stock parts?

you probably should have gone with studs/nuts instead of bolts...
with bolts you never know how many threads of engagement you actually have.

also, 20mm is a LOT of spacer... be prepared to replace your wheel bearings in a year or two (unless you have some very high offset wheels).

Not that much, but you could buy camber bolts that allow for more adjustment if you weren't getting suspension.

Thought you went back to the stock exhaust Garrett? Did you wire past the airbags, or are you going to stare at the light?

Spent 5 hours working on the 951 today. Got the momo steering wheel with quick release done, passenger airbag disconnected, airbag ECU defeated and horn wired up. Also ran wiring for the wideband and oil temp gauge...

well, i had to get rid of my RE exhaust since the tips were too large, as they were rubbing the trailer-hitch sides... went back to stock only while my custom exhaust was being fab'ed. now it's a chopped section-2 (just after the H-crossover and hanger) merge into single 3" back to a flanged muffler (flanged so that i can optionally hook up a straight-through pipe)... much lighter and no fitment interference with the trailer hitch.

i'll post some pics of it later... once it stops snowing/raining.

as for the airbags, the light has been on since i pulled the stock seats... so i don't care about the light.

There are a lot of nitrous threads out there and DIY's. It looks fairly easy taking into account that you have the right tools. But, I feel its a little dangerous. You could possible do a 330 swap? I forget what Azzy spent, but hope you have a DD if you do that. You could also try getting a hight gear ratio. It doesn't get you any more power, but it will make you a little quicker. There isn't much power wise (to my knowledge) that you could do that doesn't require going into the internals.
