    How much cheaper is that? I do not race a lot. Just mess around rarely with some friends but nothing serious.. I am looking for a good 1.5 inch drop.

    It depends on the setup. Its going to be comparable in price to a cheap set of coilovers but you do not ever want cheap coils on the car as they are absolute junk. Kyb Gr-2s and a quality spring will be in the $500-1k range and will perform better than any $1k coilover on the market

    ya thats the right track but that price is absolutely insane for used struts on a wrecked car. I think tire rack has them for like $130 each. As for springs, RCE makes great springs

    Is tire rack the best place to buy them? I would want to buy them new so I know they arent beat to death.

    Just put it in the dyno. It made 285whp and 296wtq. The AFR was set up good from the tune the previous owner did. The boost actually stays around 17-19. They didnt have the fan set up right this time. Idk if that could have prevented me from getting a higher number..

    I wouldn't want to run in the 20+ psi range on your motor if you want long-term reliability.

    What did you sort out with getting springs?

    Yeah I would like to have the car reliable but also fun. I have no idea on springs.
