Critique my mod dream list please!!
At the present time I own a 98 WS6 with about 51k miles (as seen in my avitar). Iv comprised a mod list and done it in phases in which Id like to do it. Im not familiar with superchargers enough to feel comfortable as to what kind of supporting mods or what order to mod to be most proficient and not having to go back and do things over again. So here is how I have it arranged. Id like some feedback in the order and type of mods I should do.
Moser Engineering 12 bolt rear w/4.10's
BFG Drag Radials
Hooker LT headers and y-pipe
Sub Frame Connectors
Tubular upper and lower A-arms (spohn)
Tubular K-member (BMR)
Panhard Bar (spohn)
Adjustable Lower Control Arms (spohn)
Adjustable Torque arm (spohn)
Pro Series Rear Sway bar (spohn)
K&N/NGK's/Wires/Bellows/SLP air lid
Full QA1 suspension package (springs, shocks)
ATI Procharger D-1sc 6-8lbs
T-rex inline fuel pump
Upgraded fuel rails/steel braided fuel lines
Stage 3 clutch
Fast LSX Intake Manifold
Up boost to 12-15lbs
DR Evil Rebuilt T-56 Tranny
Head porting/new valves
Heavy duty driveshaft
Stage 4 clutch
($not really sure need input)
I need ideas!!!!! HELP!!

i would personally move the rear end to phase 2. Do suspension mods, bolt ons, cam, long tubes first. Then go ahead and get it dyno tuned.

I thought about that but then again Im affraid to have all that suspension work on DR's cuting 1.6 60fts on a stock rear end (M6). It would be hard to afford the supercharger and the rear end all at the same time.

IMO, you may be just as well off to build the internals of the motor first, select your heads and cam based on the boost level you want to attain later and then have it tuned. Then, when you can afford the supercharger and supporting items to reach your goals, intall it and have it tuned for good. That way, you shouldn't have to buy multiple blower drives and pulleys.
PS - I also want to know what you ateHammer - hammertime.us

Yeah, but I still cant afford the supercharger and rear end at the same time. That would be 7k not including tuning and everything else I had on that list. Im trying to evenly space out the cost as well as do the mods in some logical type of order. From what I have read Im not going to need anything in the way of internal work besides maybe hardend pushrods for the supercharger at 8psi. I figured id leave all the motor work when I pushed passed the safe zone for the stock internals/fuel system I dont see the point in buyng nearly 7k in suspension and have stock tires on the back.. So I figured if Im going to spend the money on a bunch of suspension parts (which IMO should be the first thing you do before you add more power) I should have a 12 bolt under there so I could actually make use of them.
Im not going to come up with 14k all at once. Thats why its broken up. When I get back from my tour in Korea I should have atleast 7k saved up to buy the parts ill need for the first phase of mods. Im only an A1C but I have car/insurance and that is it for bills. All the rest goes in my pocket.
Keep the opinions coming though.. Thanks!!
