My Spring Build (89 lude)

Post  Uncle Buck on Sat Feb 23, 2008 1:23 am

well autox season is upon me and car is in need of serious TLC.... iam in a financial situation to where i can dump $2500 into my car.... here is my thoughts and also looking for some advice....

-Fresh B20a and trans from Tigerjapanese.com (new water pump and timing belt install....anything else i should worry about?)-$1000 shipped

-Port and Polish the head and gasket match intake mani (got a guy that does great work and is giving me a hellova deal to pass up)-$60 and a case of beer

-Clutch (still toss up as what to use.... suggestions needed)

-Suspension setup.... ive been doing alot of reading and iam kinda stuck on what setup for sure.... Tokico Struts for sure, but iam deciding on if i should go the Ground Control Coilovers or H&R Springs (2.25" Front 2" Rear).... i drove a buddy's setup on the GC and H&R Springs and the car was great!!... just dont know on how great DD it would feel on the highway-$400 (good price)

-Wheels and Tires....ordering these wheels here in the next few days or so: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...100&vid=006079

then wrapping them with Falken Azenis Rt-615's 205/50R15's:

-Fresh B20a and trans from Tigerjapanese.com (new water pump and timing belt install....anything else i should worry about?)-$1000 shipped Just make sure that all your valves and seals aren't dry and cracked...I would also replace the flywheel and clutch in the trans and double check the linkage and axles...

-Port and Polish the head and gasket match intake mani (got a guy that does great work and is giving me a hellova deal to pass up)-$60 and a case of beer Can't go wrong with a little P&P

-Clutch (still toss up as what to use.... suggestions needed) I would just go with a simple Exedy Clutch and Fizanda Flywheel combo...but thats just me

-Suspension setup.... ive been doing alot of reading and i am kinda stuck on what setup for sure.... Tokico Struts for sure, but i am deciding on if i should go the Ground Control Coilovers or H&R Springs (2.25" Front 2" Rear).... i drove a buddy's setup on the GC and H&R Springs and the car was great!!... just dont know on how great DD it would feel on the highway-$400 (good price) Just do a little research and see how people like the rides, now granted, your ride feeling and theirs can be dramatically different so if you know of anybody in your area with upgrade suspensions, ask if you can go for a ride and base your opinions on that.
