i didnt buy coil overs..

i have springs.. i wanted coil overs.. yes..

but.. i dont know wether i want power or i want looks..

hence i ask for guidance.. lol

i know that with 5k i can get rims and tires ...

and have money leftover..

and the vortec kit i found runs me 3k... for a used full kit.. CARB legal. V2

that would leave me 2k.. but i dont know wether to get the SC or just get rims.. bodykit, hood, trunk..

see my dilema..

thanx fellas

i know. why didnt you?
coils are better coz you can adjust it whatever height you like and adjust dampening.


also w/ the SC you need to tune it etc....
i have a friend that blew his motor w/ SC so do your research before pulling the trigger or get all bolt on engine MODs and tune it. not as powerful as SC but less headaches???

sell your springs and get coils! get some aggressive offset rims, nice bodykit and dump it!

but..it includes the FMU from vortec and everything.. and so long as i dont change the pulley the 7 or 8 psi it pushes is good for a bit over 100HP..comes with intercooler instructions..

vortec sc(3k)..and coils(2k).. thats 5k

nice wheels(3k min), CF hood($700),cf trunk(400+), nismo bumper(650) ,impul sides(450)

so what are you planning on gettting with that $$ from your FS threads? lol

gotta pay the bills son!

if the SC makes you happy then go for it
also w/ the bodykit you dont need to change the whole thing all at once.
Thats the fun of modding you see how your car change over time

If you want the nismo bumper you can get that and rock stock sides w/ front splash. A nice drop w/ some rims

yeah i went to that meet but i didnt bring my car coz it was at the shop getting some paint..was your car near speedravers car at the meet? coz i saw a blue car there(stock) w/ dealer plates in front

the burning black VSXX is discontinued i think?
One of the members here are rocking Sc1's. i believe he's from long beach. Its nice but for me it looks better w/ those VIP sedans(lexus, etc...)
btw which nismo bumper you getting? the old one or new?

If you want some rims check my teammates rims sf winnings. good price too
