don't have enough for a turbo unless there is a site where i can get one for a reasonable price(yeah right) although i only want to do all the small mods and get them out of the way now so i don't have to worry about my car holding up when i do slap a turbo.

what other sites offer parts for my car. i know of ZZP and PFYC. i know there is other sites that offer some parts(to much to list) but where would br the best ones to go too?

If you've never done a cam or rockers, or even headers or PEM'* before, hook up with a member nearby. This isn't first-timer stuff. Where are you located?

Teh Weapon is da bomb. Teh weapon delivers 3X the normal airflow to teh engine. From their own website on the webernet.

That'* enough for me. Including their ram-air claims.

I would personally not recommend removing the air ride suspension. Lowering most cars are more for asthetic appeal, it may actually hurt performance if not done right.

I wouldn't suggest removing the air either. It'* there to keep the rear level when you have too many groceries in the back, or 3 arab women in the back seat.

When are you coming back from Iraq? Where are you going to be stationed or live? Local members can help a ton with your plans.

well right now i'm in iraq. but i'm stationed at fort hood tx, and will be returning around the end of the year. on zzp the have quit a few cams and all required parts. and as for putting them in i do have access to a shop and mechanics that are paid to help me in case i f*$& something up. so that won't be a problem there.

does anybody know where i can find the clear headlights or is there a trick to make them clear. i've seen them before but the guys i've asked haven't answered me.

Let'* stick to the performance topics here, and have you start a new topic in Detailing and Appearance for the clearing.
