    Need some help with the mods i'm gonna do

    I'm gonna go with pace setter long tube headers and a y pipe with cats, can i still use the facory cats. And whats labor gonna run roughly to have this stuff put on?

    Should i go with Nitto or BFG Drag radials and what size are you guys running, my car has kumho ecsta supra's on it when i got it size 275/40/16 not sure if thats the stock tire size but i can't find drag radials in that exact size. Also what tire pressures do you run for daily use and what do you drop them to at the track? I used to have a pair on my gn but forgot what i ran them at.

    Whats the cheapest place to get sub frame connectors and how much should i expect to pay in labor to have them installed.

    What clutch should i go with? And where can i get it at?
    The mods i have and also plan on doing include:
    Exhaust
    Lid
    K&N
    Smooth Bevel
    Headers and Y pise
    Ported TB
    Under Drive Pully
    Drag Radials
    Sub-frame connectors
    lower control arms
    Bisteins

    enought questions?? hahaa

    -ok for the LT's don't reuse the factory cats. aftermarket ones flow much better. You will loose power with factory cats. Labor depends on shop $300-$600. You should try it yourself though - not that difficult - don't need any major skills.


    -For tires. most say BFG hook better and nitto last longer. As far as the size - maybe you are running 275/40/17? not 16" because 16" are regular T/A and it says you have a WS6.


    -There is a group purchase going on right now on here that you can get subframe connectors for $100. install about $50 at a muffler shop.

    - clutch depends on your future plans - how much power do you plan on making? An LS7 is a great choice for a bolt ons car- plenty more than you will need.
