after that its rollcage, finish gutting and weight reduction, 5 point harness, Racing wheel, Seats (*IF* I can afford them) then after that its a tossup between big brake kit and big turbo. Turbo is more expensive, and will require new injectors, but probably is worth it.

Please let me know how that GT30 works out when you get it on - if it spools as fast as I think it will I have a feeling I may be getting one.



What kind of brakes did you get Dave? I'm looking to do that when I put this next groccery list of mods... I was thinking the Rockateer bbk.

Thanks for the help!

I went with new Toyota rotors, got them slotted, put porterfield R4S pads on all 4 corners, and got the goodrige SS braided lines and Motul RBF600 fluid. I wanted the rocketeer, but just didn't (and don't) have the money yet.
