So I am not worried about doing to much damage once the engine mods are in. I definitely would like to go to suspension after engine is done. But unfortunately I don't have money coming out my a**. Hoping for a good bonus this year so I can complete this project by early 2014.
As I mentioned in my earlier post...and I agree with GT Drew, getting all of that power down (wheel hop is an issue with these cars in particular!) and making the car stable at speeds requires suspension modifications. There are several very good suppliers / consultants for suspension and brake systems here. Rob at Wretched is my guru.
Later...I'm going hunting now!
