    Maybe you would like to share what you are getting too. :lol:

    For me pretty much all engine work... like a new one. Then i need some new rubber and just a few little things here and there too.

    I wanna see the FMIC I've been hearing about. :)

    I've pretty much got my car where I want it. Mostly its sorting for next spring. Brakes, new race rubber, have to replace the perches and bushings on my Teins from the uber-dump I did with it in October.

    Thats assuming it survives the winter. :)

    Well, assuming I resist the urge to buy a dedicated track/race/project car, by spring I plan to have:

    real tires on my stock wheels (probably 225/45/18 Bridgestone S-03 PolePositions)
    A set of 17" wheels for race use (prob. w/ Kumho Victoracers)
    Racing Beat front and rear sway-bars.
    Canzoomers RX-8 piggyback fuel computer
    JIC FLT-A2 Coilovers

    They are teh secksy:

    And if I feel like being totally stupid and dropping $1600US on a cat-back... the JIC all titanium cat-back... shaves 21lbs off the car. :)

    Hopefully, my car will look something like one of these 2 in april. I can't decide on black or grey (almost a nimbus) and some Mugen rip-offs.

    Actually, more the "Britney" suspension on it since she drives on in her new video... :pissed:

    Yeah, that car is sporting the JIC coilovers, the bad-ass JIC exchaust and (I'm pretty sure) the Racing Beat sway bars... pretty much what I'd like to have...

    Steve: Yeah, once you put in shipping, exchange etc. it's gonna be damn close to $7K.

    Jon: But at least when I stand by my car it tends not to run into stuff...

    House... turbo... house... turbo... C'mon Dave, the decision is easy. :)

    Besides, if you really wanted a Turbo Blake's RX7 would be parked... somewhere right now. :)
