Fitment on the knockoff headers wasn't great, and I had to dent them by the steering shaft to make it clear. The stock plug wires also touched so I replaced them with a set of Hinson racing wires with a 45 degree boot, and a set of Amazon heat shields.

Next change was the rear end. I picked up a 3.45 diff locally for $250, and installed it with BMR bushings. The diff made very noticeable difference. With the cheap tires it spins a lot. and gets sideways pretty easy.

i had the car tuned at LSXKilr in Bonner springs, KS. The car made 326whp. I was a little disapointed. But didn't care to much because I already had plans to go turbo. This is also around the time I started gathering parts for my turbo build!

For exhaust I bought an X pipe from amazon and a couple pieces of pipe from oreilly and stuck it together with some booger welds. I also Picked up a set of G8 OBX axlebacks for $100 local. It's also probably worth noting that both of these were on BEFORE the tune.

Next I picked up a set of camaro Brembo's from the same guy I got my wheels from. I paid $200 for the set. And I painted them red with paint from oreilly's and put some ebay stickers on them. I also put on drilled and slotted powerstop rotors. I only installed the front. I haven't decided if I want to do the rear yet. I don't know if i'll be going to a 15" setup yet.

I bought an oil catch can from EBay. and installed in on the bolt that holds the power steering. It seemed to work well, and after about 5k miles I had maybe an inch of oil in the bottom of it.

For the meat and potatoes of the build, I made a trade and got this 80mm Billet T6 VS Racing turbo! I traded a dirtbike that I had about $500 into. I also got 2 tial style wastegates, an intercooler, Tial Q blow off valve, intercooler piping kit, AEM wideband, T6 flange, flex pipe, and abunch of misc oil connections with the trade. Everything except the wideband and the oil fittings was BRAND NEW. Here's a picture of the guys car. He has the SAME turbo on his iron block 6.0,and he says he has made over 1400WHP from it! My end goal is only 800 so This should have no problem getting me there.
