    do subframe connectors so you dont bend your rear corner panels. crazy stiffens up chassis

    95% of people who speak of track on this forum think quarter mile. watts link is a logical option for someone who autox's.
    So yah for real real and not for play play.

    You don't need one but it would be beneficial, another $130 for a mail order from frost.

    not gunna lie, i had no clue what a watts link was but found out pretty easily thanks to my friend mr.google and it seems like a sound setup, but if its so great why arent more people running them?

    It depends on what you want to do. sfc's are a must, i was told to get sfcs and didnt listen bc i wanted to spend all my money and making it faster and now a couple things dont line up so.......yeah def get sfcs. and after that its all up to what you want. Are you going to be adding more and more mods in the future?? bc thats why alot of the guys are saying to make your chasses and suspension strong but if you just wanted cheapest way to make the car faster than that would be nitrous. which you could get a complete system for under $600 i think. but if not then go with sfc's and start doing bolt ons. headers and such.

    Yes, a Watts-link(Fays2) isn't needed but it makes a BIG difference in the handling abilities of the car, regardless of where you're driving. If maximizing your cars handling abilities is high on your list then IMO it's well worth the cost($650).
    With a watts-link the rear-end doesn't shift from side to side like with a PHB, it goes straight up/down as the suspension extends/compresses. All I know is my car is very predictable and planted taking a curve. If you really want to know more I would suggest talking to Sam Strano, He can do a lot better job of explaining to benefits of a watts-link over a PHB.

    For engine mods P&P the TB, and get a LS6, or BBK intake. A Hooker cat-back exhaust would be money well spent, IMO,I would hold off on headers until you can afford some good one. If you plan on keeping a long time I would get some weld-in 2pt SFC., Strano sway-bars would be good for handling, plus there light weight. A Watts-Link would also be a great addition, but I would wait until after you've done SFC's, shocks, springs, sway-bars, and LCA's.

    Overall IMO, put an intake, and a cat-back at the top of your list, and then a good shifter.
