Default Re: Well, it's official - the '00 is getting modded...

Front brakes from teh '00 went ot he '96, and the '00 now has upgraded front binders. And really. what's the point if I don't do more to make it worthwhile?

SO - the brakes put me in STS-STX for SOlo II. I can legally go crazy on teh suspension in that class, header (as long as it doesn't change the location for the cat), CAI, exhaust... Man, I wasn't planning on doing anything with this, lol. Now plans include rear disk conversion (will be done soon), '91/2 header (shortly as well), probably make my own CAI unless therte's a good cheap one ya'll recomend.

Which brings me to suspension. I was going to get the AMR coilovers back when that was getting going, but it didn't happen, and I decided to keep this car stock. Now that I'm not - are they stioll available? 2nd suspension bit - in teh spirit of using cheap JY parts wherever possible, does anyone know if the rear sway bar for he SW's is bigger/stiffer than the stock SC2 one, and if so by how much?

Gotta pick ou some wheels, too...

I read on 6S that AMR finally delivered after a year. There was only one OE 15mm rear sway bar on 1991-2002 S-Series twin cams. The rear disco puts you in STX unless you put ABS bits on there and claim it came that way and stay in STS. 1991-1998 S-Series only have that loophole. Get some lightweight 15x7 wheels. Oh yeah if your Cold Air Intake (CAI) is like the AEM CAI and involves cutting a hole in the wheel liner, you're no longer in STS. Short Rams like the AEM SRS or Injen, Iceman, Hotshot, K&N FIPK are OK in STS.
