    Okay every, last night I was rather grumpy ahahhaa, got into a fight with someone and sort of took my frustration out on you all. I apologize . I do appreciate all the criticism. But I am one who takes things personally, IDK WHY?!? lol So if your gunna try to help me, please be productive and not try to make me look like a fool. I am still fairly new to the "tuner world" and need to learn a lot more. After this giant chat I have done a lot of research on breaking and suspension! And believe me I am considering E85. Thing thats sucks is, NJ has like 4 E85 dealers in the whole state lol. Luckily I have 2 within 30-40 min of me. But still, do I wanna be gone for and hr and half just to get fuel. Eh, not really. So I'm thinking of keeping 55 gallon drums of it at my local shop or closer. But I'm def waiting til winter is over to run E85. Cuz if I'm going to run E85, I wanna beef up my fueling system! Bigger fp, fuel rails, fuel reg, maybe bigger injectors. Etc.

    Nice build and great pics. Where in NJ are you located?

    For the record, a shaking head emoticon is simply a shaking head emoticon. Nowhere does it say "you're stupid!"
    Located in Central Jersey! And i took it as a shaking head= "omg what an idiot" just like if someone was to shake their head at you walking on the streets. But it's over now, so lets drop it

    Lets get back to talking about my thread and not be "emotional"

    Do you drive your car? That has everything to do with suspension.. and no, your car will not work properly if you don't do suspension and brakes. When a car has a serious deficiency in either of those areas it becomes unsafe to drive, and the more power you have obviously the better handling and braking is required to stay safe on the road. There is a reason that race teams slowly increase the power output of the car over time while working out suspension issues, it's called safety. Just look at what Turn in Concepts and 3MI Racing are doing with their time attack STi right now. They could easily just tune in more power, but the car would be unsafe to drive and actually be slower around the track if they did so without addressing the handling decencies first.

    Now if you just drag race your car and trailer it to the track, that's a different story. I don't recall if you ever said what the car was used for..


    I think the Brembos with some better pads can be fine for street use, they will exceed the grip level of the tires. If you plan on racing, then you might want to think about upgrading them.

    I am using the car for drag racing. Never have autox'd it! But I do plan on it, just like I do plan on doing suspension and now braking since evey1 has told me it is 100% necessary!

    If every1 would read my mod list first, they would see the future possibilities. And yes, I now know that it's not something that I should wait to do. It's something that needs to be done asap or else I'm not only not letting the car exceed to it's fullest potential, but making the car a bit unsafe for those power levels. Believe me, I have every intention on doing all those mods but I just spent a fortune on building this motor and wanna let my bank account recuperate before I empty it again

    Future possibilities:

    -KW/RaceComp/Tein Coilovers
    -Perrin/Eibach Sway Bars (25mm Front / 22mm Rear)
    -Kartboy End Links
    -Sweet Wheels 18x9.5+38
    -Big meaty tire
    -Rolled Fenders
    -ForceWorkz Skirt Extensions
    -Stainless steel brake lines
    -Appropriate brake fluid

    Solid list. As long as you're doing SS lines and brake fluid (I use ATE SuperBlue myself), you might as well throw in pads, since you'll have everything apart anyway. I would get a streetable pad that doesn't require a lot of warm-up, especially since you're in NJ, with relatively cold winters. I would recommend against jumping straight to a race pad.

    Any recommendations on specific brand? And links to where I can find them for a good price? I agree, might as well do brake pads also!

    Not really, I have Hawk HPS pads (a great steetable "sport" pad), for what it's worth, but there are better options out there. I also don't have an STI, so other members can chime in on that front. There are plenty of threads around here on the topic as well.

    Yupp, I gotta do my research! I just did a lot of research on the stop tech street performance braking. i priced out a whole kit minus rotors for $250. Which is not bad at all and will make a huge difference! Thats ss lines, front & rear pads, and Stoptech STR660 Brake Fluid DOT 4 500ml. Anyone got any opinion on this setup I just stated?

    Gotcha...yeah I'm in NJ as well (down south)...I know this retarded state all too well!

    You never answered my questions on the interior lights. What all did you go with to get that result? Looks good.

    That will be a great setup over the OEM pads. SS lines are awesome, and better fluid in them helps. I would consider a little bit better of a pad than just the Stoptechs though. Hawk HPS, Ferrodo 2500s, or EBC Greenstuffs would be better options with your power. You probably won't need new rotors for awhile (30k miles or so), so good move laying off.

    I just picked up a set. Not on the car yet, but highly recommend them based on everything I've read, as well as Feal's reputation for other suspension work. I'd get Tein off your list if you're DDing. RCE Tarmacs and KWs though are at the top of the game.

    I've heard mixed feeling on almost every coils except KW's and Racecomp (heard nothing but good things of the 2). And as for the lights, Everything red you see is all LED's, whether its single 194 bulbs or 24" LED strips! I put new HID bulbs in, 6k and I also put in 6k for light LED's and 6k turn signals. Yeah I'm not gunna jump right into getting braking! I'm gunna do my research and ask people questions before I rush in and buy something that may not be necessary!
